Ask any successful entrepreneur or executive of a leading company what is the most important thing they do to succeed and my bet is they tell you “focus”.
Most success starts out as a dream that overtime comes into fruition through brainstorming, planning, and taking action. But, the one thing that keeps the momentum going once achieving the first paycheck, completing the first winning product, or landing the first important position in a leading company is focusing on what is most important and taking action.
In college, focus is the major commodity while taking action is study and limiting distractions. No matter how much experience we have in life, focus is something we must nurture and practice. Not everyone has the immediate ability to achieve focus. Whether we are kindergarteners or presidents, we all start out having to learn how to manage attention.
