Have you ever taken the time to identify what realistically giving your all to something is? Some people like to throw out the “give 110%” saying, but what does that even mean? What would life look like if you gave it your all?
Here’s a focusing scale that may represent what each percentage means to you:
100%: Working with Clarity // Feeling Accomplished
90%: Clarity Abounds // Feeling Passionate
80%: Clarity // Feeling Prepared
70%: Focused // Feeling Purposeful
60%: Putting Focus on the Right Things // Feeling Organized
50%: Searching for Ways to Focus // Feeling Determined
40%: Frazzled // Feeling Anxious
30%: Confused // Feeling Lost
20%: No Focus // Feeling Powerless
10%: Don’t Care // Feeling Depressed
Why do I give you this scale? Because it’s easier to gauge where you are at with focus when you have a tool to measure and identify your focus levels. I created this scale with the smiley face and frowny face chart at the doctor’s office in mind, so when you can’t put your current focus levels into words, this scale will show you. When you are unable to focus, you may find yourself at 10%, but when clarity abounds, you may find yourself at 80%-100%.
