FOCUS – Follow One Course Until Success

March 8, 2011 1 comment

There comes a time in one’s life when one has to make a choice in regards to career, life choices and so much more. All too often we wander aimlessly or flit from one project to another.

Recently I met someone who asked me if I knew what FOCUS meant. This got me thinking. We all like to think we are ‘focused’ and that we know what we want. But do we really? Do our attention spans last the course? Do we stay focused until we have actually reached out to achieve what we want or are we too easily distracted?

On reflection, I can honestly say that I had lost focus, I knew I wanted get somewhere and do something significant with my life. How easy it is to get into a comfort zone and then lack the confidence to take that leap into the unknown and pursue ones goals.

I was given a 1957 Australian Penny by this person and it serves as a reminder to me on a daily basis to FOCUS and so I have set myself some goals, small achievable ones to begin with, but each one will bring me closer to what I want to achieve.

T.S. Elliot says “What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.”

Put an end to procrastination, and move forward. Set those goals and set out to achieve what it is you wish for yourself. So, if you are passionate about something get out there, FOCUS and be successful!!

The ability to focus attention on important things is a defining characteristic of intelligence.” Robert J. Shiller

How the love of latte has led me into the world of social media (@luvmylatte)

September 16, 2010 1 comment

As a self confessed coffee addict and lover of latte I have found myself being drawn in to the world of social media.

I found myself thinking a little while ago about how I could go about sharing my passion for coffee with others.

As a result, I created a Facebook page “Luv My Latte” (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Luv-My-Latte/) and have acquired www.luvmylatte.com which I am hoping to have up and running soon.   My intentions are to share reviews of the many cafes I visit, interesting coffee facts and titbits and much more.

From humble beginnings and basic knowledge I am slowly working my way through the plethora of information out there in researching all there is to know about coffee as well as learning about web design.

I have chosen WordPress as my blogging tool and am in awe of just how much there is to learn.  This has led me to many hours of viewing tutorials, the purchase of a “Beginners guide to …WordPress” as well as speaking with many blogging and website experts.

I have learnt that the interface in WordPress is easy to manage.  One can create a post and publish with just a few clicks.  The look is easily customised and there are lots of free themes as well as lots to purchase too depending on your requirements.

There have been many occasions however, where I have felt like tearing my hair out in frustration… Solution… have a latte, deep breathe and keep on blogging  🙂
