Focus on the Goal

Spiders aren’t a particular fear of mine, but I don’t love them. This one, discovered at night our semi-outdoor sink, was different from anything I’d seen before, its body like a small avocado.

It was so unusual I decided to take a picture and wound up getting closer to it than I otherwise would have.

Which reminded me: fear diminishes when there’s a job to focus on. I found in my early news reporting days that I felt pretty comfortable asking anyone anything if it was for a story I was working on. A task focus is a calming, emboldening strategy that can be used in a lot of situations.

Have you found this to be true in your life?
