CHAPTER 6 Focus Robbers

We understand that one of the symptoms of feeling overwhelmed and unfocused is not being able to see the wood for the trees. You want to change, but you want to be told how in a way that doesn’t fry your head further. You need less information, not more. You need the right information.

We have tried to keep this book simple and show you how anybody can learn how to be more focused. To do this you need to recognize how and why you’ve lost your focus and then put in place strategies to hunt yours down. If you take away only one thing from this book, let it be our comprehensive list of Focus Robbers.

Just think, simply by banishing a few of these from your life today, you’ll improve your focus no end.
