For many of us "lack of focus" is our biggest nemesis. It is for me!
In the vision groups that I coach, that is the biggest challenge for most. This assignment often gets them in a tailspin: "Focus on ONE market segment for 90 days"
One of the most brilliant things that Steve Jobs did was to understand and demand focus.
In an interview with Fortune, he made a similar distinction:
“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully."
I often say "just because you can, doesn't mean you should!"
We only have so much energy, "RAM" and resources in any given day. How can you "pick something" and be more remarkable because of it?
I look forward to your comments!
