Changing your Focus

dandelionJob Stickiness #3
a series to help you keep jobs or tips to make you sticky in the next one.

For anyone who really pays attention, there was a different blog post here this morning. But after reflection, I decided I didn’t like the post enough to keep it.

I’ve never done that before, annihilated a whole post after it was published but today I changed my focus and no longer wanted it to be out there.

This means that there are Twitter references to a post that is now non-existence. There are Facebook references to a non-existent post. But there were no comments or RTs so I don’t think that I messed up anyone else’s day.

I just changed my focus.

Do you ever do that? Change your mind midstream?

Let’s ponder that today instead. What do you think? The post is gone, there is no copy, it is gone… I hit delete. What would happen if you changed your focus? What are the consequences? Would changing your focus help you with job stickiness like Maximizing your energy levels or Colored Pen To-Do Lists?

Talk to me, I talk back!

    Oh, yes.

    Sometimes a change in focus comes due to internal urgings, and other times an external event foists it upon you.

    Regardless of the reason, I think it’s important to be able to embrace the change as a part of life. It is one of the constants of this world. As long as you don’t purposefully leave someone hanging as a result of the change in focus (unless the change is a result of a catastrophic event), then I’d say that nothing bad would come of it.
