Living a scattered life is much different than simply living in the moment and trusting immediate feelings to make decisions, though. Living a focused life and living in the moment are by no means mutually exclusive, but letting the moment rule your life or living your life never knowing why you do or say or believe the things that you do takes the power we each have to do important things out of our hands. If a person has an idea of where he/she is going, he/she will take greater, swifter strides to get there. So take a moment, maybe even sometime this week, and set yourself some hard questions to answer. Remind yourself of where the anchor that keeps you from blowing away on the wind of the world lies.
