Titles By Diana Fitts
You finally reach a goal, but the celebration is cut short. You feel panicked as you face questions of the bigger and better goal around the corner. One minute you are overjoyed by your success, but the next you find yourself victim to post-achievement paralysis and the “what next” trap.
How do you choose your next goals?
In a success-driven society, it is easy to become obsessed with choosing perfect goals that will lead to perfect lives. As we all race to the top, there is no time for mistakes, wrong turns, or even celebration. Instead of appreciating your accomplishments, you let paralysis and anxiety over the next step halt your progress towards your dreams.
How do you celebrate success?
What Next? is your guide as you celebrate your biggest goals and look forward to your next steps. You will learn how to approach your goals so as to rid yourself of the anxiety that comes with achievement and turn your dreams into life-long, sustainable habits. From changing the vocabulary surrounding your goals, to throwing your excuses out the window, What Next? will teach you strategies for shifting your mindset surrounding your goals so that they are motivating and rewarding, as opposed to overbearing and paralyzing.
How do you take action towards your dreams today?
As a free gift to readers and goal setters, with your purchase of What Next?, you will receive access to the 7-Step Goal Setters Action Plan. Used in conjunction with the strategies presented in the book, this action plan will guide you as you discern your future goals. This is your life and it’s time to take control of it.
Do you have trouble staying on task and finishing projects to completion?
You know you should be working on that report, but you can’t drag yourself away from Netflix and Facebook.
You finally get around to cleaning up that spare room, but ten minutes in, you’re looking at old pictures you dug up and nothing else gets done.
You need to get more serious about exercising, but you can’t seem to develop a regular routine to get it done.
What’s lacking in all of these scenarios? FOCUS!
We live in a world with nonstop distractions, so it’s no great surprise that we feel pulled in a million directions. How are we supposed to get through our ever-growing to-do lists when every time we turn around, there’s one more thing to get done or one more diversion to pull us away?
Believe it or not, we all have the ability to focus. When we think of focused people, we tend to envision meditating monks and elite athletes and think, “I can’t be like that.” But the power to take back control of our time and productivity is available to all of us. We’ve just lost track of it in the middle of 24/7 internet access, the constant pinging of our phones, and lives that get busier every day.
What if you could develop focus strategies that build on your own personal interests, tendencies, and dislikes?
Not a one-size-fits-all recommendation, but a plan crafted specifically to help YOU take control of your focus and productivity. Your Focus Formula walks you through a variety of strategies for developing your focus and leads you through exercises to make them your own. Learn how to harness joy and disappointment, and how to brush aside the excuses keeping you from your goals. Channel your motivation and learn when distraction might actually be helpful. Your Focus Formula gives you the tools to create a focus lifestyle that works and puts you back in the driver’s seat of your life.
