Focus for Success - 5 - Do One Thing Exceptionally Well

in #mindset2 years ago

In the very first post or chapter, if you will, I mentioned a book that has had a great influence on my life. "The One Thing"* by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan, it is a great read for anyone at any point in your life. But it is especially valuable if you are trying to get your bearings on what you need to do in your life to be successful.

In the book, Gary Kelly wrote that huge success was tied to narrow focus or concentration. These are very powerful words that you can use to jump-start your quest for success.

The key to success is to focus, but not on success. You must focus on the one thing that you will become great at, that will, in turn, create your success. You are literally creating your own future one step at a time. This is not difficult and the more you practice, the more of a statement you will make in your life.

The key to focusing is to be concise as possible on what you are going to excel at. You must devote your time and energy to the one important thing that you will become great at. And, in turn, become a success for doing. Notice, it is not really all that complicated.

Interestingly, you will find that as you get really good in one specific thing, other things fall into place. Your success seems to multiply. In part because you are focused on the most important things to you, but also because success begets success.

Successful people are focused and driven to do things exceptionally well. Words by Guy Sellars

I usually recommend to spend 60% efforts (focus) in a hard task and 40% to
a related thing (enjoyable task).

Hi @ritch. Thank you for dropping by and your input. I find you comment interesting. I don't think you are talking about multi-tasking here, just switching your focus, is that right?

A little later in this series, I'm going to address multi-tasking. But would also comment that when you focus on the most important thing in the moment, I tend to believe it is also enjoyable, at least for me.

Hope to see you again.
