I find focus to be an interesting concept. As I began to consider what I wanted to write about this evening, I found myself losing focus. I am 5 days away from a trip that I have anticipated for near 11 months now. My mind is racing thinking about everything that I will see and do for 10 days in Israel. Will it be the amazing insight into the past that I hope? How will I capture the sights and sounds both for myself and as my job requires? Will I be able to take interesting photos to document the trip or will they just be ordinary or worse, uninteresting, poorly composed and out of focus? And I my wanders, I try to maintain my focus to complete the important tasks that must be completed before we depart. Just as a quality photograph requires goals to get the focus correct, so does focus in the day to day. Since in began my 40 goals for my 40th year, I feel myself much more focused in my life. For the first time in years, I feel as if I am not just drifting through my daily chores. Not all photos will be award worthy and not every day will be legendary but maintain your focus and you will get the shot you want.
