Have you ever seen a driver applying make-up while navigating through traffic? I have.
Ah, and then there are the folks, who carry on a telephone conversation or text while driving.

Even as lack of focus can result in serious injury or death while driving, it can keep you from fulfilling your destiny as a writer. Fixation on past failures or successes can jeopardize your present and future.
Keep your eyes on your goal and the One who planted it in your heart.
