                                      by Dianne Bitzes

                  Time	to	bid	farewell	to	Father	Time	and	welcome	Baby	New	Year—2011!	Many	people	direct	their	attention	to	the	
                  past	year	while	others	give	effort	to	the	coming	year.	Instead	of	reflection	or	resolution,	I’ll	take	a	chance	with	
                  a	 path	 less	 traveled—focus.	 For	 me,	 focus	 is	 about	 concentrating	 personal	 and	 professional	 effort	 and	 energy	
                  toward	a	desired	result	or	outcome.
                  	"Focus"	is	not	a	repackaging	or	marketing	of	the	tried	and	true	concept	of	beating	oneself	up	because	of	a	failure	
                  to	keep	a	resolution.	Focus	is	a	powerful	action	word	employed	by	life	coaches,	philosophers,	writers,	artists	and	
                  inventors	through	the	ages.	A	quote	from	BrainyQuote.com	highlights	this	principle:	
                                 The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.
                                  ~Brian Tracy
                  If	you	think	focusing	your	camera	is	easier	than	focusing	your	life,	you’re	not	alone.	Having	a	specific	theme	or	
                  two	makes	focusing	more	manageable.	As	with	a	camera,	it	is	difficult	to	focus	on	more	than	one	object	at	once.	
                  Remember,	the	objective	is	to	live	a	clear,	fulfilled	and	balanced	life.
                  My	 focus	 for	 2011	 is	 on	 service	 to	 country	 and	 career	 progression.	 That	 said,	 this	 is	 my	 last	 "About	 That"	 for	
                  MyHurlburt	Life.	I	can	honestly	say,	sharing	peoples’	stories	was	a	wonderful	way	to	"work"	every	day.	I’m	proud	
                  to	take	my	manpower	background	and	Recruiting	Service	Ops	Officer	tools	with	me	to	the	33	AMXS	as	their	Unit	
                  Program	Coordinator.	See	you	around!
