Let’s take a quick look back at the first week of this year. With all the political happenings globally, the fresh memories we have of them, feels like yesterday, but it’s already a month and a half since the new year! It is easy to have squirrel moments and lose focus; when we snap back to reality, we can see time didn’t stop, and now we need to catch up!
Losing focus is widespread, and more so if we are setting project goals, like the ones we start on New Year’s or at the start of a new quarter. These projects take time to produce results and can lead us to become impatient and lose energy.
