I like dogs, or, more accurately, I like dogs I know and I don’t dislike dogs in general. I’m more of a cat person. I can appreciate, though, how dogs get distracted by the smallest things, such as squirrels. No matter what the dog is doing, a squirrel shows up, and boom—she’s off chasing it. (Okay, cats are basically the same. We just can’t see some of the things that distract them.)
Unfortunately, we humans often “chase squirrels” as well. We can easily become distracted from what we need to do to achieve our goals. Little things constantly come up, and boom—we’re off chasing them.
If we want to achieve the professional and personal life that we want, it is important that we stay focused on our goals and ignore the “squirrels” that constantly chatter at us. It’s acceptable to tell people “no.” It’s acceptable to let unimportant things slide. And although some squirrels are fun to chase, does doing so help you reach your goals?
Are you a squirrel chaser? Could you achieve more if you ignored those darn squirrels?
Yes, I know my blog last week was on my author event and book signing at Tribeca in Watertown, Wisconsin. And this week my blog is on the W J Niederkorn Library’s fourth annual book fair on Saturday, July 30. What can I say, it’s that time of year!
Saturday’s event is in conjunction with Maxwell Street Days in Port Washington, Wisconsin. The book fair features authors, publishers, and book sellers. It runs from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., although Maxwell Street Days runs later. We will be set up by Smith Bros. Coffee.
If you are in the area, please join us. Last year was a great time and I am sure it will be this year as well. If nothing else, please share this for others that may be interested.
Please join me Saturday, July 23, at Tribeca GalleryCafe & Books, Watertown, Wisconsin, for an author event and book signing from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. You can receive 10% off my products during the event. (Tribeca also offers excellent coffee and bakery products.)
My books encourage women to think about what they do, why they do it, and do they want to change.
Please share this information. Thank you!
