The Power of Focus | Key #1 for Online Business Success


– When you think about focusing, you think well, focusing is saying yes. No. Focusing is about saying no. Focusing is about saying no, and you’ve got to say no, no, no, and when you say no, you piss off people. – Bill and I, his father, many years
ago, right after we met, had a group of about 20 write
down on a sheet of paper one word that they thought
accounted for their success. Bill and I, who may have only met twice, didn’t know what the other
one was writing down. We both wrote down the
same word, which was focus. – Focus is something
that’s easier to achieve when you’re in a comfortable state or when you’ve got positive energy, positive people around
you, and you’re happy. Then it’s that much easier to focus. – What focus means is saying no to something that you, with
every bone in your body, you think is a phenomenal idea, and you wake up thinking about it, but you say no to it, because you’re focusing on something else. The thing with focus is
it’s not sort of like this thing you aspire to
or you decide on Monday, you know what, I’m gonna be focused. (laughing) It is a every minute, a why are we talking about this. This is what we’re working on. You can achieve so much
when you truly focus. Oh but focus is about saying no, and the result of that focus is gonna be some really great products, where the total is much greater than the sum of the parts. – I think if you focus on being the best within yourself, all that stuff will come. I hear people say “Get your money on. “Get your money on.” I hate that. That’s your motivation? If you do well, the money will come. – I know. – You control your time, and that sitting and thinking may be a much higher priority than a normal CEO who, there’s all this demand, and you feel like you need to go and see all these people. It’s not a proxy of your seriousness that you’ve filled every
minute in your schedule. – People are going to want it, want your time. – Yeah, the demand is
– That’s the only thing you can’t buy. I mean, I can buy anything I want, basically, but I can’t buy time.
