“One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.” - Anthony Robbins
"The ability to focus on one thing single-mindedly and see it through until it’s done takes more character than anything else." - Brian Tracy
“The ability to concentrate and to use your time well is everything” - Lee Iacocca
“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus.” - Alexander Graham Bell
As the gardener prunes the tree to draw the sap into one or two branches, so must we concentrate on one or two to avoid scattering our talents.
The strong by scattering their energies, accomplish nothing. The weak, by concentrating on one thing, build big business.
“It seems essential, in relationships and all tasks, that we concentrate only on what is most significant and important.” - Soren Kierkegaard
An exercise in concentration: Once a week, ask yourself: "Is this thing I'm doing right now helping me reach my chief goal?" If it isn't, change it.
