It all comes back to… 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!
