How To Get Back On Track

If you have been following this blog for a while, you will probably be aware that my life has been derailed by situations, events and the never-ending house rennovations!

The premise of the 5 Focus Tasks is that these are the ones you truly commit to and you DO NOT take on any other tasks until these are completed.
