Advice for a New Decade/Martin Rosenfeld, JD

In Stephen Covey’s work, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, he lists this as Habit #3:

“Broken focus is the number one reason people fail. It’s not enough to start off on the right track; you must successfully avoid the unnecessary distractions and attractions of life that aim to sidetrack you… The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.”

Mr. Covey did not write Habit#3 with mediation in mind. But for those who enter into a mediator, or who guide its process,it is crucial to “keep the main thing the main thing”. Good advice for the new decade and all those that follow.
