3 Simple Ways To Get Hyper-Focused

3 Simple Ways To Get Hyper-Focused Coach's Notes: Focus On Focus I'm going to give you a simple process for staying focused better than ever before. Focus is essential to success. Focus = Success. What is failure? Why does failure occur? I believe failure occurs due to a lack of focus. Or a diffusion of effort. Meaning you’ve spread your attention across too many things. One thing I’ve observed in three decades of coaching, is those born with “A talent” or “A+ talent” have a tendency to take...
