If you want your life to have impact, focus it!

There is nothing quite as potent as a focused life, one lived on purpose. The men and women who have made the greatest difference in history were the most focused. For instance, the apostle Paul almost single-handedly spread Christianity throughout the Roman Empire. His secret was a focused life. He said, "I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead."

If you want your life to have impact, focus it! Stop dabbling.

Stop trying to do it all. Do less. Prune away even good activities and do only that which matters most. Never confuse activity with productivity. You can be busy without a purpose, but what's the point? Paul said, "Let's keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us."

Rick Warren 'nails it down' for those of us committed to becoming all the God has gifted and called us to be. Warren's book, The Purpose Driven Life (Zondervan, 2002), is loaded with vital, strong content. I highly recommend you take this 40 day journey through A Purpose Driven Life. You can grab a deeply discounted copy of this book at the 'Leader Store' (tm).
