Are you a blogger who tries too hard to focus on doing too many things? Have you heard that if you try to do too much, you won’t end up doing anything well?
Recently, I attended a blogging conference called Rev Up Your Goals for 2015! Get Yourself Organized, Focused, and Make A Plan! About half the seminar was devoted to teaching bloggers the importance of focus and how to achieve it. Since only 25 could attend, I am bringing the conference to my readers.
New Years just passed. Did you make a resolution to achieve your goals? Goals are often discarded and resolutions forgotten. The presenter, life coach, blogger, and author Melissa Reyes came up with a simple solution for bloggers to achieve their goals in 2015. Instead of focusing on a goal or a resolution, focus on one word.
According to Reyes and the video she showed, one word can change everything. “It has transformational power.”
Think of just one word which you will help you focus your 2015 blogging goals. A one-word goal should be easy to achieve. Mine was balance since my 2015 goal is to find a
balance between family and blogging. Once chosen, it is important to tell someone your focus word. Verbally commit. If someone knows you’re determined, you’ll be less likely to back away from your intention since you’d risk losing face. (Intention, by the way, was one of the focus words.)
We are taught that skilled people multitask, so it’s good to take on too much. For this reason, we aren’t trained to simplify our lives.
According to the book One Word that Can Change Your Life, “Urgent things scream, and important things whisper.” The one word can help you hear the whisper.
The late UCLA basketball coach John Wooden believed in the power of the one word. He agreed it will promote a life change.
By following the advice of Melissa Reyes, and the authors of One Word that Can Change Your Life, you can narrow your focus to produce extraordinary results. Envision a better life. You can have it, but living your one word.

If you think this post can help other bloggers, or people in general, achieve focus, please share.
Readers, do you believe that one word can bring a mission to your life? If not, how can you experience renewed purpose this year? I look forward to your views.
