The Power of Focus

Someone asked me the other day what I thought was the one factor that increased a persons chance of success in any area. I didn’t need to consider the question for long before I answered “Focus”.

In my opinion focus is the most important thing to consider if you want to succeed at anything. There is a problem with focus though in that it will deliver whatever is properly focused upon regardless of whether it is good or bad.

One only has to consider megalomaniacs like Hitler or the current leader of North Korea Kim Jong un to see examples of focus being used for evil.

If you really want to hit targets with absolute certainty directing your focus is the way to do it. Creating good habits is another. J Paul Getty once said and I quote;

“The individual who wants to reach the top in business must appreciate the might of the force of habit-and must understand that practices are what create habits. He or she must be quick to break those habits that can break him or her-and hasten to adopt those practices that will become the habits that help achieve the success he or she desires”

I couldn’t have put it better myself Paul!
