Think for a moment about all the sources of information around you that vie for your visual, mental, emotional, and physical attention. You are fielding multiple stimuli on an ongoing basis. It’s no wonder that you are easily distracted, and find it difficult to focus sometimes.
And within the realm of focus, there are many different levels for how you attend to things around you, and projects at hand, from the casual to the precise. To become an elite competitor in business, it is vital that you and your team learn the fine art of focus.

The more you work on becoming a laser-focus expert, the easier it will be to maintain it, even under the most demanding circumstances.
