Its hard to stay focused, especially when it comes to meeting deadlines. Its easy to fall off track when you focus your attention on things that dont matter towards achieving your sense of peace and happiness in life. They’re called distractions. Its easy to get distracted when we are unsure of where we are going in life, or what we are doing in life, toward meeting our goals in life. Its important not only to stay focused, but with purpose, and be task oriented toward achieving our goals in life, not just driven for acceptance or for accolade, thats usually not the push that gets us going, but only stifles us in expectation of something positive to come. You have to be positive in order for positive things to happen in your life. When you are happy with yourself, usually everything else falls into place.
