Family, finances, health, career, community, and faith

You have a list of things that are important to you.

Usually, those center around your family, finances, health, career, community, and faith

That “power six” grouping usually covers what is most near and dear to our heart. 

To improve in these areas, it will take some work. You’ll need to read. You’ll to reflect. You’ll need to plan. You’ll need to act. 

Now, do an audit. Look at your life’s inputs. Look at what you consume. Look at where you spend your time.

Television shows. Radio. People. Ideas. Social media. Time. Books. Magazines. Conversations. Exercise. Food.

Some of those inputs empower and improve the “power six” noted above. 

Some of your inputs will not. They take up time, attention and effort, but don’t move the ball down the field. 

They are noise. And nothing else.


This week, I’ll try to limit the noise and focus on what matters. I find that when I do, my world gets better faster.

Feel free to join me.
