Keep your focus on the future during busy season

Busy times around the farm usually mean there are a lot of irons in the fire, and it's easy to let all the urgent, acute issues around you consume the entire day. When this kind of situation occurs, it's tough to keep a positive, future-oriented thought process, but that's what needs to happen so you can maintain your business strategy and keep steering your operation toward the goals you've envisioned.

Having that well-defined, long-term goal brings purpose to everything you do on the farm. It's important to make the most of the limited 24 hours we get each day, seeing to it we remain efficient and effective with the work we put in. To help gauge the importance of the little things with respect to your long-term vision, Lance Burditt has some questions you should reflect on as you go about your day. He shares them with ag broadcaster Dewey Nelson.
