My success, part of it certainly, is that I have focused in on a few things.
- Bill Gates
I looked up the dictionary definition of 'focus' with the help of dictionary.reference.com. They had 9 different definitions. Among them were:
noun - a central point, as of attraction, attention, or activity
verb - to concentrate
I think that both definitions are relevant to what we're doing. By focusing on our financial activities we're making them a central point of attention, we're concentrating on them. That concentration separates our financial activies. It gives them a special importance.
So I encourage you to take a moment to focus any time that you take any financial activity this month. You might be surprised at what you learn about your finances and yourself.
