Your chances of success are magnified exponentially if you have the ability to focus. Yet, focus is the trait most leaders struggle with.
It’s like watching a movie on TV. If you give it your undivided attention, you’ll be able to follow the plot, understand the characters, and ultimately enjoy the film. If, on the other hand, you keep jumping up to talk to your pals on the phone, cook a meal, or do your filing, you’re likely to miss some important things that are happening on screen.
And it's likely that once you’ve lost track of what’s going on, you’ll reach for the remote and watch something else instead.
It’s not that the film wasn’t good. It might have been a real blockbuster. But if you don’t focus, you’ll lose the plot and then lose interest.
The same is true in business.
If you force yourself to focus on the important projects and goals that will get you and your team to the next level, you'll see an amazing change to your productivity. You'll even be able to reduce the number of hours you work - with better results.
