Focus

June 29, 2017

Hi, everyone! It’s day 36, and I’m in Las Vegas. We just wrapped up a wonderful day of training going over some velocity banking stuff and capitalizing your business, and a few other things.

 

Anyway, today, day 36, is about focus. What is the one thing you can do to make everything else easy or unnecessary? It’s important to focus on attention. I’ve recently come across a few stats that we’re talking about when we get distracted in the office. We pick up the phone, or we check an email, and we get distracted. It adds more time to the task at hand, whatever it is that we’re doing.

Getting distracted costs you a lot of money. Getting taken off of a task every time you get distracted could cost you 15 minutes to take one distraction and get back on track with what you were doing. We want to stay focused. That’s how you’re going to gain your goal, whatever it is that you’re after. Asking yourself this question, what is the one thing I can do? Such that by doing it makes everything else easy or unnecessary?

So a couple of other things about focus is we all have shiny object syndrome. Being able to be a laser, not a lantern, be a laser, not a lantern. What does that mean? It means going deep, not going shallow. Being that laser allows you to say no to a lot of things. A good entrepreneur says yes, a great entrepreneur says no because that’s not what they’re focusing on.

If you want to create change in your life, be a better communicator, have a healthier body, make more money, all of it has to do with focused attention. It’s a special human trait, focusing on our outcome, focusing on our goal. When you’re focused, one thing we have to remember is multitasking is not a real thing. It’s not possible to multitask. You are fooling yourself if you think that you’re multitasking. It’s counterproductive.

A couple of things that I had to do was stop my multitasking. I do one thing from start to finish. I look at my calendar from 11 to 12. It’s to return emails, and that’s all I do. I don’t look at my phone. If I get a call, I’m not answering it because it’s email time. Right, or you’re not trying to close on a real estate deal while you’re at the gym. You are focused on the gym, not reading a magazine while you’re on the treadmill. Okay, these are about focus.

While you’re in it, stay focused on the whole thing. You know, you’re going to have many opportunities come by, and you have to say no, you say no because you’re focused on one thing. That one thing will then lead you to the next. Next, you’ve got to be able to stay focused. What happens if we don’t focus?

If you don’t focus, you will lose a lot of productivity, your performance will go down, and you will lose track of your goals. If you don’t focus your attention on something specific, you will begin to procrastinate, and it’s going to put you off your path. Okay, procrastination is a trap. It’s dangerous. The easiest way to get out of procrastination is to do something on your list that you’ve been procrastinating. I’m serious.

If you know you’re supposed to work out, and it’s on your list, then do some push-ups right now. Knock that thing off of your to-do list, and you’ll have forward momentum. We have to focus. We see people that want to start a business, and there are so many things that take them off track. We don’t want to see that with your focused attention.

One way that I’m able to focus constantly is I changed my phone background and the lock screen to focus on the thing I want to be focusing on. Bob Proctor talks about this in Your Born Rich. He talks about how important it is to put your goal on a three-by-five card and put it in your pocket and carry it with you everywhere. Look at it as often as possible and bring your focus back to whatever it is that you’re doing.

We get so distracted every second of the day. There’s the next thing to look at or the next thing to engage in. A lot of them are trying to steal your attention. It’s up to you to protect your attention. Okay, well, I’m glad you guys are here joining us.

When you get in your car, where are you going? Are you driving on autopilot? Focus. When you’re at your computer, focus. When you’re at the dinner table, focus on eating. It’s a rare trait that people have a 100% attention span. If you neglect it, it will bite you in the butt.

If you don’t have any focus, or if you fooled yourself into thinking you can multitask, pick the one thing and ask yourself what’s the one thing I can do such that by doing it, everything else becomes easier or unnecessary?
Thanks for tuning in on day 36. We’re almost there. We’re pushing for 60 days, sunrises to success. I appreciate you guys being here. Remember, take back your existence, or die like a punk.
