Focus On Your Dot

Today’s post has less to do with books, more to do with life.

A few years ago I was working on the huge annual fundraiser for my non-profit employer. I was the only staff person who had worked on the event before, and there had been a lot of chaos in the months preceding that led the whole thing to be dumped in my lap.

In the weeks leading up to the big day, I would lie awake every single night worrying about whether this person would remember to label the boxes correctly, what I could do to ensure that person would actually show up for their volunteer shift, and so on.

After a meeting with some core volunteers, one of them told me to FOCUS ON MY DOT. She used our office whiteboard to explain:

The concept randomly sprung up in my head today and I thought I would practice my Illustrator skills and pay it forward through the magic of the intertubes.
