#009 Distraction of “Good Works” Part 1

Have you noticed any time you set a goal to accomplish a task or improve any area of your life that something or someone always seems to come along and deter you from that goal? In today’s podcast, We will discuss distractions we face on the journey toward purpose.

Sometimes distractions wear the mask of “good works”. Often the grind of day-to-day activities and responsibilities such as home, work, or school are a barrier to purpose. There are occasions when the distractions are self-imposed because we have not learned to say no or prioritize responsibilities. At other times, influencers that are more dubious are to blame.  Today we will focus on the distraction of “good works”.
