Episode 104: Focus Like A Laser Beam


Do you struggle with keeping focused? You’re not alone. I also struggle because I get excited about doing ‘all the things’. However, Joe is here to help me! He worked out a process to help me become more focused and to avoid that dreaded shiny object syndrome. On this episode, Joe breaks down his process and asks me (and you!) a series of questions on where your goals and priorities are right now.
