I know there's a need there, I'm just not sure how to find the focus. I've opened my eyes, found myself the proverbial kid in a candy store, and not sure what I want other than I like chocolate. Anyone have any insight, or exercises to help gain focus?

I understand just what you mean here, Wreck ! ( I like chocolate too
Look at what you are already doing--cleaning house, learning more about this, creating your future, focusing your intent.. wow!!! How about constructing an intention which focuses on where you are today while you are doing just these things?
I'm thinking something maybe pretty general, describing how you are doing this--maybe its joyfully, compassionately, effectively, passionately (in your words, your thoughts, your feelings..)--Something which focuses on what you are doing now that you expect will have an effect on your life, say years from now, as well as in a progressive way, between then and now....
And then maybe a second one which focuses on some specific thing you are also doing now, this time something you expect you will see some results from soon (like conceptually finding the next step in some part of your process...or, if there is a particular physical thing you are "cleaning up", seeing that you have cleaned up and it is so much better now.
Have you seen some of the introductory passages some folks are using? It seems those might be real helpful to the process you are describing...
"In an easy and relaxed manner,
In a healthy and positive way,
For the highest good of all,
In its own perfect time, with its own perfect timing,
In good faith and in good humor,
(I intend)----then you put your intention in, actively and positively....Some people use "I intend and then work the words as an intention (e.g. "I intend my desk clear, beautiful and organized" or "I intend confident understanding of the next few steps I need to take to start my business" or "I intend a clean, warm and operational kitchen greeting me every day") and some use more an affirmative style ("I have a clear, beautiful and organized desk to work at", "I am confident in my understanding of the next steps...", "My clean, warm and operational kitchen greets me every day")
Hope that's somewhat helpful
Best of good luck and do keep us posted!
