One Thing At A Time – the power of focus

We can be brilliant thinkers: problem solvers, innovators, great communicators. And in a fast changing world, we’re challenged to do all of that. All at once, all the time. Problem is, we can’t.

Michael Michalko, the famous author of Thinker Toys, demonstrates the limits of our thinking in a recent Psychology Today article. As he points out, our brains aren’t designed to multiprocess. But when we’re focused, like the cat pictured above, we can do phenomenal things.

To activate our brilliance, we need to slow down and concentrate on one thing at a time. And you know what? It’s not only a more effective and productive way to work – it’s a better way to live. Be focused. Be brilliant. Enjoy.
