Let’s see the above picture. Try to focus on one colour wood. Just one colour.
We know that you tried to focus on one colour with a lot of attention and at the same time you couldn’t help yourselves but noticed other colours also.For most people their eyes can’t even settle on one of these colour woods.
That’s exactly our world looks like. Lots of colours. Lots of options. Meetings. Movies. Chatting. Social Networking. And everything needs your time and attention. That’s how it appears for the most people. So they try to operate to find their way through this clutter environment. Ultimately they lost some where in this environment.
You might have heard that solution would be you need radical focus. What is Focus ?
Let’s learn from one of the richest man on this planet “Warren Buffet”. Once an interviewer asked Buffet “You worth 50 billion dollars considering one of the wisest investor in the history of the humanity. If you could tell us your key to success in one principle what would it be ?”
Buffet said “For every 100 great opportunities that are brought to me I say “NO” 99 times”.
Because it is easy to say “Yes”. There is no conflict or tension. “Yes I can do that”. “Yes I can go to movie”. “Yes I can take a call”. However the master skill of success is saying “NO” because it takes courage. It takes clarity on what your are focused on.
So just ask one question yourself “What crappy stuff do you need to stop from doing, to focus on the good stuff ?”
