The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

This week, we focused on focus, upon how to find it and how to keep it. 

This beautiful and important article from the Harvard Business Review by Greg McKeown gave us much to consider, including the below: 

 "By applying tougher criteria we can tap into our brain’s sophisticated search engine. If we search for “a good opportunity,” then we will find scores of pages for us to think about and work through. Instead, we can conduct an advanced search and ask three questions: “What am I deeply passionate about?” and “What taps my talent?” and “What meets a significant need in the world?” Naturally there won’t be as many pages to view, but that is the point of the exercise. We aren’t looking for a plethora of good things to do. We are looking for our absolute highest point of contribution."
