Self Improvement and the Power of Concentration

One the most important Self Improvement skills to develop to ensure our success is the ability to concentrate.

The most intelligent, gifted or educated person is unlikely to succeed without being able to focus on important tasks and concentrate totally on their completion. Any person with even average intelligence, that can discipline themselves to concentrate 100% on their highest priorities, will almost certainly achieve better results than supposedly 'smarter' people who can't or don't.

It is very easy to be distracted. We are all constantly faced with countless distractions every day, many of which may be more interesting than the tasks we know we should be doing. But this is where we can waste vast amounts of time if we're not careful. We can't ignore all distractions, but we must make the conscious effort to decide what are our most important and highest value tasks at any time, and give these our maximum attention.

Some people find concentrating on one task very difficult, and there are resources available to help develop this vital skill. Or it may just take more self discipline. If success and achievement are important to you, it is well worth doing whatever it takes to master the ability to focus and concentrate.

Self Improvement Quote of the Day:

"Concentration is the secret of strength in politics, in war, in trade, in short in all management of human affairs." ? Ralph Waldo Emerson
