Focus



Focus is defined as the ability to pay attention to a task or another person, as well as the act of deciding what to concentrate on in your environment. For some of us, focus is merely a simple act of choice, while others of us have brains that are wired to only focus well in certain optimum conditions that are rarely met in classroom or office settings. The ability to direct and maintain our focus is a skill that can be developed, but not all strategies work for all people. In a world filled with so many distractions, what we pay attention to in life changes what we experience, and having the ability to choose what we focus on can make a huge difference in both our lives and the lives of those around us.
