I’ve been thinking lately about the core traits for high performance; the core traits for enabling efficiency, productivity, and delivering the value that we all have the potential to deliver.

One of the key attributes, that may seem obvious, but is often overlooked, is the power of our focus.

Focus doesn’t just mean eliminating distractions and being focused on the task right in front of you. It also reminds us to ask, ‘What is taking up your mental space? What is taking up your mental capacity and absorbing your mental energy without adding any extra value?’

Improving your focus isn’t just an act of vigilance or showing more willpower, determination or discipline. These are all good things, but they often only lead to short-term results. They are a short-term strategy.

In today’s video I review the long-term strategies we can use to maximize our focus, and maximize our results.
