We live in curious times, where people are interested in one thing or the other but the most important thing is how relevant what it is in our lives. It’s called the Age of Information, but in another light it can be called the Age of Distraction.
A lot of times, the only difference between someone who is successful and someone who isn’t is that the successful person possesses a laser beam of extreme focus which is capable of removing any obstacle.
The world we live in makes it easy to become sidetracked by things that steal our attention and make us less effective in relationships or as business people. A lot of people operate in “overwhelmed” mode. They become mired in their daily activities, unable to get off the hamster wheel of meetings and reactionary emails and calls. Their true professional goals begin to drift farther and farther away, and they try to compensate by robbing time and attention from their personal lives.
Focus is not something that comes naturally for most people; it is a skill that requires mental discipline. It must be learned, refined and practiced. Focus takes intentionality. But in order to take the intentional steps necessary to get what you want, you must first understand exactly what that is. You have to develop a vision.
Write out a clear and authentic vision for your life and refer to it often. This first crucial exercise enables willing changes in behavior. The second step involves identifying and concentrating on what really matters as you work to fulfill your vision and filter out the distractions that hinder its progress. That’s focus.
Success truly hinges on the ability to cut through the clutter and emphasize the high-leverage activities that are the backbone of reaching your vision. If you can do that, you will be able to act and accomplish your vision results faster.
