I spend a lot of time at this desk, so it’s only fitting that I put some stuff in front of me that I want to remember: pictures of loved ones, encouraging notes, inspiring verses, and some other random things. Last week, I cut out this excerpt from the Catalyst Atlanta brochure and pasted it on the wall:

Do you find yourself facing this challenge too? What do you do to stay focused on the present?
