A focal point is a dominant element that draws your attention. It is the first thing you notice when you walk into a room, or where your eye is drawn to in a piece of art. It is a place to begin and it sets the tone for everything else.
With every new project, it’s important to think about the things that catch the eye, good or bad. What is the first thing your buyer is going to see when they walk into your house for sale? Make sure their eye is drawn to something positive right away.
While we’re on the subject, what about the focal points in your mind? If you are doing something “big,” like flipping a house or starting a business, you need to constantly remind yourself why its worth all the effort. Keeping your “why” in front of you constantly – whether it be a picture, a song or a positive affirmation that you read – will keep your mind focused on something positive and set the tone for all the decisions you will need to make going forward.
