Is it worth concentrating on anything nowadays?

March 18, 2018

Goal drawn on a wall

There are some people who feel everything is so topsy-turvy these days that to even ask the question ‘Is it worth concentrating on anything nowadays?’ is pointless.

Being cynical and dismissive of the concept of goal-setting is an option. That said, it is not the only one. It can be argued that precisely because life comes across as chaotic, we need to answer in the affirmative to the inquiry ‘Is it worth concentrating on anything nowadays?

Without our personal and professional objectives to guide us, our concentration risks to be lost to the confusion around us. Busyness is not to the same as business. The extent to which we value our time and put it to productive use – in any areas of life close to our heart – is ours to decide.

Another point worth bearing in mind when pondering ‘Is it worth concentrating on anything nowadays?’ is that of fundamental enjoyment. Life offers so much in the way of mental stimulation and natural beauty, it seems a shame to let time drift by in a haphazard fashion.

Is it worth concentrating on anything nowadays? Your response is yours alone to reflect on.

Kindest regards.
