In 1999, when we celebrated our son Chad’s 10th birthday at a local I-MAX theatre, it was your basic evening of popcorn and pandemonium. We tried, with little luck, to corral a dozen hyper-energized ten-year-old boys.

However, little did I realize, I’d also learn a valuable lesson from a 3D picture. Yet it’s a lesson, also applicable to you and your life and business, especially now.

That I-Max system was powered by a 12,000 watt sound system that produced the equivalent sensation of a jet plane taking off. Plus, the I-MAX projector had two 15,000 watt Xenon (Zee-non) lamps which created enough energy or light to project a spot 225,000 miles away…on the surface of the moon. Now that’s focus.

And focus is absolutely crucial to your on-going success, especially in any time of change. Remember, change may initially bring shock, discomfort or even pain. Yet it’ll also bring opportunity and growth.

While the past is history and the future a mystery, there’s nothing strange or mystical about change. It’s a constant. It’s a reality. So great things are still to come. Change, simply requires your willingness to take a step beyond.

Focus. And reach for the moon!
