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:
I love this trait, and here’s why:
- Focus allows you to batch effort. This allows you to make tremendous progress without flitting around from one thing to the next.
- Focus forces 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-missle on 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 just like for its own sake.
Focus is why I tend to write shorter blog posts. I want to give you the kernel and let it sprout within you.
So what about you? Are you focused? If so, what on? If not, why not?
