Do you constantly ask yourself where your next business opportunity is or focus on the essence of your strategy? To achieve any objective you have set you have to focus on It is that simple! Specifically, you have to be able to focus on aspects that are essential to your business. That is what differentiates people interested in finding opportunities of what I call successful entrepreneurs. The opportunity seeker lives in an almost constant state of anxiety trying to figure out what can I do. Where he is my next business opportunity? Instead the successful entrepreneur focuses on the essentials and asks what the minimum effort necessary is for my success vision becomes a reality?
But whether you are a strategic entrepreneur as an opportunity seeker, you are constantly aware of the potential opportunities and other distractions vying for your attention.
Take a second and reflect on the following questions:
- Do you find it difficult to concentrate on a single task for more than an hour?
- Do you get bored easily when you are not in front of the computer or with the mobile?
- Are you looking for a technological solution for every issue you can imagine?
- Can you sit and read a book or an article without diverting your attention?
- Do you run out of patience easily when you enter into lengthy discussions about certain topics?
If you answered yes to any of the questions you could be, vulnerable to threats easily distracted your attention and concentration. It means that the distractions around you keep you busy productive and effective. The secret of productivity is to keep you focused on one task. If you want to achieve all your goals in the shortest possible time and become a successful entrepreneur, you must master your ability to concentrate and focus on what really matters to you. Otherwise, you will become a slave to distractions.
At company level lose focus means that simply do not carry out the actions to be developed in a timely fashion. You spend many hours working, when in fact during that time you are not achieving anything meaningful for your business. The focus is the heart of your activity and depends on your ability to implement a good strategy. Put another way you do not have a strategy until you determine what you are going to focus on to achieve your goals.
The benefits of maintaining concentration are translated into creating advantage within your business. And the leverage leads to scalability (essential if you want to grow). Instead, lack of concentration generates a loss of focus leading to delays, overwhelmed and, ultimately, to failure. If so, I want you to know that this creates your own problems, negatively affects your ability to get clients and, even worse, decreases your ability to keep them.
