But that planning didn’t help the people who had to accomplish six goals.”

This makes a lot of sense to me. It’s not hard for me to set priorities, but when I have a lot of things that are all top priority, I find myself paralyzed instead of motivated.
Same here. And, when I start feeling overwhelmed, it’s hard to pick the priority (out of all the priorities) that should be focused on. So, I really have to just pick one focus for each day.
Yes – FOCUS! That’s actually my “one word” for this year, but sometimes I forget.
Sending you some awesome focusing vibes! =)
