Bill Gates and Warren Buffett reportedly both gave the same answer when describing the single most important factor to the success they achieved over the course of their lives: focus
I love this trait. Here's Why.
The Power Of Focus
- Focus allows you to batch effort. This allows you to make tremendous progress without flitting around from one thing to the next.
- Focus, by its very nature, means you have chosen a priority (or priorities). It means you know what you care about most and are moving like a heat seeking-missile towards your target.
- Focus means you don't let others pull you away into their priorities. This is key in modern life.
- Focus has a zen-like quality that I simply like for its own sake.
The power of focus is why I write shorter blog posts. I want to give you the kernel and let it sprout within.
So what about you? Are you focused? If so, what on? If not, why not?
