    Focus on the journey, not the destination.  Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it. (Greg Anderson)

    A Harvard study of over 35,000 leaders from thousands of companies across more than 100 countries found that 73% of leaders feel distracted from their current task either “some” or “most of the time.  Imagine how effective we would be if we could be more focused.  Focus is like a muscle that needs to be worked on every day.  Here are some tips.

    1.  Practice mindfulness, it is the foundation for focus.
    2. Know the times of the day you are at your best and plan the most important activities at those times.
    3. Sleep is essential for good focus.
    4. Coffee, sad to say is not good for focus.  While it suppresses drowsiness, it scatters focus.
    5. Control your emotions, emotions greatly affect how well you focus.  For example, if you are angry deal with the anger in a constructive way so you can focus better.
