What can be another way to say keep it before you or keep it on your horizon?

Is this a question of focus, or is your intention more about procrastination or putting it off? – Tom Swifty Sep 26 '13 at 17:56

'Keep it on your radar' has a similar meaning of 'don't forget about it, but don't do anything about it yet'.

'keep it in mind'

There are numerous phrases

  • keep your eye on the ball
  • maintain focus
  • keep it in your sights
  • be eagle-eyed
  • have a laser-like focus
  • keep it on your plate

I think all of these imply being fully focussed on [whatever it is]. But keep it on your horizon is invariably used to mean don't forget all about it (for the long-term), even when you're busy with more pressing matters in the short-term. – FumbleFingers Sep 26 '13 at 18:07

Don't forget about it or it will be coming your way soon.
