FOCUS – follow one course until successful

I first came across this advice on a John Lee Dumas podcast.

Recently I also saw it as the title of a Huffington Post article, where it tells us that it was actually Robert Kiyosaki who coined the phrase “FOCUS – follow one course until successful.”  Robert Kiyosaki is the author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and has done very well for himself.

John and his Dogs

John Newman writes about some of the issues of staying focused when working from home  and also offers some solutions.

For him scheduling is particularly important but so his remembering he is choosing to be at home with his family.

He gets quite a few questions about his scheduling which he answers – especially on page 5.


Process is more important than outcome

If we have a challenging goal it is obviously going to take some time so we had better enjoy the journey!!

Jetrbby reminds us to focus on the process, not the outcome.

Here is a quote from his article which I found intriguing

Quote Instead let go of the need for any particular outcome, and you will increase your chances for s and c.

I definitely agree with the word beginning with “c” – but I am still pondering the one beginning with “s”.

Can you guess what the missing words are?

  2. Just like we have to focus on just one course at a time, we have to fcous on just one Tip at a time, know it’s a process and take everything one step at a time. 

    The reason process is more important than results is because it’s from the process that we learn more efficient and effective ways to be Instructors and Promoters of Life. 

    Thank you for this Article, it is a helpful reminder to FOCUS with insightful references.
