Focus. Or . . . Ferris Was Right

When I try to explain why I chose FOCUS as my one little word for 2018, I start here.  With Ferris Bueller. 

And that's it, really, in a nutshell. 

Life moves pretty fast.  If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

I want to stop and look around for awhile.  

I want to focus . . . on what I might be missing; what I'm not seeing . . . because I'm too busy looking at what I'm already seeing.  

I want to find out what happens if I . . . adjust my focus?


I think it's going to be an interesting year!

I love Ferris! It's awesome that he inspired your year of focus!


I am teetering on the edge of losing my focus lately. This is a good reminder


Being in the moment is a skill that requires practice but truly focusing on the details of a given moment is the true challenge. This year will be a wonderful journey for you!


I hope you'll be sharing some of what you you see and focus on. ;)


Well said! And, I agree with Vicki! XO


Being attentive to focus, adjusting your focus from up close to the big picture and farther away towards the horizon is going to make for an intriguing year!


Should be an interesting year and, like others, I hope you share the journey!


Who knew—Ferris Bueler (typing his last name required three work arounds from auto correct) is a philosopher!


Ferris is a guiding light in so many ways. :-) And I'm also looking forward to watching you take this journey and to learn from it as well!


Such a nicely different look at a word, looking at subjects, focusing, and looking again --but a definite focus, not the "whole picture"? Almost a paradigm shift-like thing?
For me, it's reading the whole . . . . "whatever" it is, whether document or letter, or instructions . . . it's understanding each word and sentence and dot. For instance, a knitting pattern!
(unless you're reading Solar Bones, it is really an unusual or odd type of novel in just the logistics of reading. There are mostly run on sentences, no beginning capital or period at the end. I have really had to read rightly slow and think. I think I recommend it. )


That photo of you ... oh my goodness, I love it! (I hope you're getting it printed. BIG. Costco does an awesome job with that!) Looking forward to following along with what you see, and decide to focus in on. The speed of life is really ... fast!


Your word is perfect for the fast pace of life today. When you focus you have to look at the whole picture, which takes time. Time is the commodity we treasure most. Your word is genius and I look forward to seeing how you bring it into focus for us!
