One of my favorite books on the topic of focus is The Power of Focus: How to Hit Your Business, Personal, and Financial Targets with Absolute Certainty by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Les Hewitt. (Amazon link)
The book lists 10 focusing strategies that readers can follow step-by-step to work toward achieving their goals. I like to pick a goal and then work my way through the book, chapter by chapter, until I’m done.
The book was written by the Chicken Soup for the Soul guys, so I was a little skeptical when I first picked up the book, and there is a Chicken Soup flavor to some parts of the book, but overall the book is very practical and useful — something I consider to be essential in any business book I recommend.
Just like any other business book out there, this isn’t going to astound you with insight you never considered before. That’s okay. Instead, this book gathers together some good ideas about focus and presents it in an easy-to-follow, easy-to-implement way. After reading the book a couple of times, you’ll end up skipping most of the text and just following the worksheets that follow each chapter.
Get the book, read it and apply its principles.
