Obstacle 72: OPB: Other People’s Business

“So long as the thoughts of an individual are scattered, he will achieve no results. But, if his thinking is concentrated on a single point, wonderful will be the fruits thereof.” ~Abdul-Baha

OPB (Other People’s Business) offsets personal developmentYou can’t work on your own growth as long as you are occupied, busy tending to somebody else’s business.

“Sweep around your own backyard” is an old saying that sums up appropriate counsel to a busybody.  When you invest more time on OPB you are in denial. Usually many types of defense mechanisms are at work sabatoging your success.

Mind your own business. Re-focus, self-focus. Take a hike, ride in a new neighborhood, study-take a class, volunteer or write your mission statement. Make you a priority for once.

Don’t be a quidnunc. Stop it!

Opportunity Step: Focus on your own goals today.
