The Secret to Success: Focus & AttentionApril 16th, 2014 | Posted In Business Advice
I want to share with you what I feel is a major key to success in business and also our personal relationships. Now I know that’s a big claim, but please read on as I am confident you will get tons of value out of this idea.
Now I can’t claim this as my own tip as I had this lightbulb moment after watching the movie About Time, and also had the idea confirmed during a day spent with Siimon Reynolds internationally renowned entrepreneur, author and expert on human achievement. If you haven’t watched the movie, I highly recommend it, even though it is a bit of chick flick it honestly was worth it.
Enjoy every moment
I won’t go into what the movie About Time was about (no pun intended), but the thought I was left with afterwards was that we should enjoy – or find a little joy – or look for a little joy, in every moment, no matter what small, menial task you’re doing. Life in itself is a gift.
Be present in the moment
Siimon shared with us about the importance of being present in what you are doing in each moment – give each moment / the people in that moment your full attention for that moment in your day. Realise that today is a gift and once it’s over you can’t get it back. If we become more aware of this, we would listen more, value more, connect more with those we come in contact with – and that can only be a good thing for both our business and personal life.
Here’s to your success.
