Have you noticed that when you focus on your work, it generates new ideas?

New ideas are great, but I’ve noticed that they are often strong enough to pull me away from my current task. That’s a problem, because effectiveness comes from focusing on a specific piece of work and executing, not following every glowing trail you see. Those who follow the glowing trails often get lost doing so. Also, why are the trails glowing?  Focus Better…

In school, I didn’t care about my grades.

It was only in my later high school years that I did my homework regularly (whoever invented homework is the worst).

Officer now on board, he weaved his way through backroads he knew well, taking shortcuts to where he suspected the suspect would be. He was able to track the criminal down so the police could taser and detain him, which they did successfully.

There’s no telling how many more people would be hurt right now if this man hadn’t made the firm decision to help. He didn’t ask the officer, “Can I help?” He confidently drove up and urged the officer to jump in. He was all-in.  Decide.
