Tunnel Vision

Do you get tunnel vision when you are going after a goal and ignore the other parts of your life?

I sure did and it led me down the path of some serious imbalance and stress.

It’s interesting to me that tunnel vision is something our bodies do under stress. I personally have never had a problem focusing on a goal. My problem is that I tend to focus on it to the detriment of all other things in my life. This is classic move for an overachiever. 

Some questions that I find helpful when I become aware that I’ve got tunnel vision and I am ignoring things or not being present in the moment are:

🤔 What feeling am I trying to get by achieving this goal?

🤔 How can I feel that now?

🤔 How can I relax and enjoy the process?

🤔 How is it true that having balance makes me more productive and effective?

🤔 How is it true that I am worthy regardless of whether I accomplish my goal or not?

If you know that your tunnel vision is a problem, but you don’t know what to do about it, I can help. I can teach you how to manage your mind, your energy and your time so that you can have all the balance and calm you want and still achieve your goals.
