“People think that focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means staying not to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully.” Steve Jobs
High performers train their focus. They know that busy doesn’t mean they are doing the most important work. They know their human nature is that you are not disciplined and nor have self-control. So, train your mind to focus on what’s most important for them given their mission and purpose. They decide to focus on one thing – put the distractions away. High performers say no so they can say yes to the most important things.
Power Phrase this Week:
I train my focus to stay lasered in on my purpose. I do what is uncomfortable not easy!
