In our last +1 we talked about Spinny Fingers and how to quickly regain our equanimity when life spins us around.

Here’s another way.

Mark Divine is a former Commander in the Navy SEALs. He tells us that in the chaos of war, elite SEALs are taught to “simplify the battlefield.”

When the fog of battle rolls in and things are nowhere near as clear as they were a moment before, it's absolutely essential that we simplify everything.

Commander Divine tells us that we need to identify THE next most important target and then put ALL of our energy into successfully executing that micro-mission as we maintain what he calls “front-sight” focus.

Simplify. Identify next target. Focus. Execute that micro-mission. Repeat.

That’s an incredibly effective way to roll. ESPECIALLY when things are most challenging.

That’s today’s +1.

How can you simplify the battlefield of your life? What's THE most important thing right now? Give it your front-sight focus.

Hooyah!

P.S. The last four digits of my phone number are 5320. Mark tells me that “5320” just so happens to be the call signal for a junior SEAL. It's become a fun game to sign off my text messages to the Commander with -5320. 😃
