  1. Interesting piece. I honestly believe in the power of grit and focus to get things done. Habit building depends on this. Small actions done everyday that build up to bigger rewards and returns. I completely agree with finding what you love to do and sticking with it.

    In addition, I’ve found that in the age of social media and distraction, what matters is how keen you are on your goal. If that is prioritised then distraction doesn’t faze you. I’ve learnt a lot from studying how the ones who do it well manage. Laura Vanderkam and her time blocking strategy have been an incredible source of inspiration. Plus I also noticed those who work hard do one thing: not squander their time on social media. They use it as a tool enhance their goals, which I find exemplary. Finally I’d like to think I’m halfway there and enjoying the process πŸ™‚

    1. Very true, Shailaja! If we’re set on our goals (after we spend time identifying what we really want to do), no amount of distraction would be able to keep us away from reaching our targets. Thank you for mentioning about Laura. I am keen on reading about her time blocking strategy.

      I’ve always looked at people in awe, who use social media and still gain something from it.I guess, if you really make up your mind to do something, you can even learn a lot from social media- which is a conventional time waster πŸ™‚

      Thanks for your lovely comment πŸ™‚
