Many years ago I had an opportunity to attend a workshop on Steven Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.
It was a great workshop. I learned a lot that made me more productive and focused.
I took the concepts and techniques to heart, but there is one that stayed with me and remains part of my repertoire nearly twenty years later.
It's the notion that our concerns can be thought of as falling within two concentric circles.
The smaller of the two, the inside one, is everything that we can do something about.– things that we have the power to change. This is the circle of influence.
The larger, outer circle, is the circle of concern, all of the things we think about but can't necessarily affect change in.
If we keep our focus on the circle of influence, it grows larger, making the difference between what bugs us and what we can improve smaller and smaller as time goes on.
We "shrink the doughnut " between the two circles as we become more effective and more powerful.
If we emphasize the outer circle, what bothers us and is beyond our control, the opposite happens, leading to increased stress and diminished effectiveness.
So, apart from being unhealthy, big doughnuts are stressful too!
