Focus

“How do you get nominated # 1 eight years in a row?” the weather channel asks. In part, their answer is “focus.”

Focus is a good word. It can be a noun, as in “the focus of our attention, or a verb, as in “focus that telescope.” It has to do with paying close attention to the object or activity that requires our concentration.

Ford has a car they call Focus, and given that this company came through the recent economic crisis showing a profit instead of asking for billions of dollars in government bailouts, perhaps they really were focused.

To stay focused is to pay attention to what matters most, and not be sidetracked by all the other things that clamour for our attention.

The weather forecast here for tomorrow (Saturday) is cloudy with a chance of showers, but today (Friday) it is sunny and warm. I think I will stay focused on today!
