The thing that prevents us from achieving all of our goals is that we often focus on the wrong things. For example, take the following quote when it comes to relationships.
“Immature people always want to win an argument, even at the cost of a relationship. Mature people understand that it’s always better to lose an argument and win a relationship.” Author unknown
I liken this quote to the age old question: Are you worried about winning the battle or the war. Let’s define the “war” as your end game – the big result. Let’s define the “battle” as the activity you are currently mired in. Sometimes our activities take on a life of themselves, full of emotion, roadblocks and people with different agendas. Do you get blinded by the activity to the point where you get diverted from what’s truly important?
Sometimes we let the little things get in the way and they become big obstacles—-obstacles which in the end have very little impact on the overall goals you are looking to achieve.
