Have you ever sat down to accomplish a task or goal and started and stopped and then started and stopped again. Or you are writing a project or figuring out a solution to a problem and then your concentration gets interrupted? I think one skill set that we are losing (well some of us) in our society is the ability to focus on one thing or a particular object and complete that and then go on the next goal. Now I’m not talking about multi-tasking because yes we all need to have the ability to multi-task, but I’m talking about actually taking the time to sit down and complete a project or write a letter without checking your e-mail or updating a social media status. Try it for an hour, for some of you try it for a minute. You’d be amazed at the results and power of a focused mind.
