Focus Is Key For Success

Focus Is Key For SuccessGiven that you’re reading this blog, the chances are that you’re aware that focus is key for success. You can set as many goals as you like, have dreams, get motivated and learn, but without focused attention and action, you’ll struggle to succeed. I for one, can vouch for this which is why I started this blog in the first place and on the realisation that I was far from alone with this struggle.  In today’s world of ‘hyper distraction’ with endless opportunities it’s becoming more and more challenging to focus and be productive – which is why it is so important to develop your ability to focus – and this is very possible.I just came by this article from Boston.com in which Ellen Keiley, President of the MBA Women International, talks about the importance of staying focused and motivated on our goals and also how Yoga can help with focus. Gentlemen, don’t be put off by her position, this applies to everyone! 

Set Goals, Believe in Yourself, Stay Motivated, and Maintain a Positive Mental Attitude

Set and always focus on your short-term and long-term goals, stay motivated – always keeping an eye on the big picture, and maintain a positive attitude. Don’t let negative energy bring you down, and believe you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

It is an attitude you develop over time.” Once you develop that mindset, it can only help to learn how to practice living a focused life to more effectively carry out your vision and goals.

I read a really interesting article about Steve Jobs in which he was reported to drop seven of the top ten things the company should be focusing on at that moment in time and he dropped the last seven to focus on just three. When visited by Larry Page, the co-founder of Google, towards the end of his life, Steve Jobs gave him some advice which all revolved around focus. He advised Larry:

“The main thing I stressed was focus,” [he recalled]. Figure out what Google wants to be when it grows up, he told Page. “It’s now all over the map. What are the five products you want to focus on? Get rid of the rest, because they’re dragging you down. They’re turning you into Microsoft. They’re causing you to turn out products that are adequate but not great.” Read more
