Loosing Focus

What makes people (or organizations) lose focus on their purpose and calling? I had a fascinating discussion about this with the Mavuno dream team and they had some great thoughts…

  • Success – easily sidetracks people or organization
  • Too many good things – doing less better always results in more
  • Attitude- not expecting hardship and opposition
  • Too task oriented – forgetting that true success is always about people
  • Fatigue- not taking time off to replenish reserves
  • Focus on maintaining what worked before, rather than on purpose
  • Not keeping the main thing the main thing
  • Not clarifying wins – need to regularly ask ‘what is success for me?’
  • Not celebrating wins – you get what you celebrate
  • Lack of consistency
  • Fear
