Where we choose to place our focus dictates how we invest our cognitive energy. The big challenge is that we are not always conscious where we put the spotlight of our attention.
When we feel crushed by pressure or uncertainty, our focus tends to favour pessimism and negativity.
From my experience, when we are under pressure, we need to be selective of how we invest our attention. As our minds speed up, we tend to become too occupied with the outcome and too little on the effort needed to reach the outcome. Focusing too much on the result can be incredibly draining on our motivation. Especially when we know, there is a vast distance to cover before we cross the finishing line. The distance can leave us feeling overwhelmed.
The short game is a phrase I use to refer to the effort and actions we take in the here and now. The long game is the term I use to specify the future outcomes and goals we are trying to reach.
