The Power of Focus

Success Strategies of Warren Buffet and Steve Jobs and Bill Gates

We are in the technology age where information is coming at us from our e-mail, texts, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, U-Tube, and our phones.  We cannot escape the bombardment of thoughts, ideas, stories and articles.  Information is literally a Google search away.  We could spend hours or the entire day reading and researching and learning and/or communicating with our staff, boss, clients, prospects and centers of influence.

Successful individuals get crystal clear on their goals and become ruthless with their time.  They stop “chasing the information rabbit” and carefully choose how they spend every hour of the day.   They solely focus on those few activities and individuals that will help them achieve their goals.

“When Bill Gates first met Warren Buffet, their host, Gates’ mother, asked everyone around the table to share the single most important factor to their success.  Gates and Buffett both gave the same one-word answer:  “Focus.” (Warren Buffet: “Really Successful People Say No To Almost Everything.” By Michael Simmons)

Warren Buffet knew the value of his time and created a system to protect it.  He would write down 25 goals.  Next, he would circle the top 5 goals.  Then he would eliminate the remaining 20 goals and take them off the list.  His time and energy were focused on the top 5 goals and nothing else.  This is simple, brilliant and not easy to do!

Steve Jobs supported the power of focus when he stated the following at an Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in 1997:  “People think focus means saying yes to the things you’ve got to focus on.  But that’s not what it means at all.  It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are.  You have to pick carefully.”

Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Steve Jobs have given us dinosaur tracks to follow on our road to success:

  1. Get clear on your top 5 Goals.
  2. Your time needs to solely focus on your 5 goals.
  3. Focus on your goals and say NO to everyone and everything else.

Warren Buffet had his own coach who held him accountability and kept him focused.  Who’s holding you accountable?
