How Long Do You Stay Focused?

Everybody wants to be successful, but not everyone can find their way to success. Why? I believe that most people simply get lost.

Let me explain. Have you ever looked up a word in a dictionary? Your intention may have been to check the definition of a word. You go through the pages alphabetically. Let’s say that the word you’re looking for is “perspiration.” On the way to the Ps you stumble onto the word “orotund” and wonder what it means. You find out that it means “pompous.” Since you’re on your way to the Ps you glance at “pompous” and find “pretentious” which leads you to “ostentatious,” and in the process you forget about “perspiration” altogether. The result: lots of sweat, but no progress. The cause: lost in thought.
