This Is Why We Need To Focus On One Thing At A Time

“The weakest living creature, by concentrating his powers on a single object, can accomplish something.”- Thomas Carlyle

Concentrate on where you are, not where you want to be. When you concentrate on where you are, where you are going will take care of itself.

Do not worry about other things. They will wait. Finish what you are doing right now. Always answer the first call first. Always do the first thing first. Do not scatter your powers. Do one thing at a time. Take one step at a time.

If something is too big for you, break it down into manageable pieces. Do not worry about anything. Live your life. Work hard. Concentrate on your life. Make your life better. Because life will always continue without you.

But when you concentrate on one thing, you can get a lot done.

You Rise by…

In the words of James Allen, “Whatever your task may be, concentrate your whole mind upon it; throw into it all the energy of which you are capable. The faultless completion of small tasks, leads inevitably to lager tasks. See to it that you rise by steady climbing, and you will never fail.”

Whatever you are doing, whatever your task may be,

if you want to be good at it, if you want to master it,

you must concentrate your whole mind upon it.

Be the best at what you do. Study everything about it.

Ask great questions. Learn everything about what you do.

Listen to people who have done it. Learn from others. Relearn what you already know.

Learn what you do not know.

Because we rise by learning.

We rise by loving.

We rise by teaching.

We rise by asking questions.

We rise by doing what others do not do.

We rise by challenging ourselves.

We rise by facing our fears.

And we rise by conquering ourselves.

Again, whatever you do, do it well.
