Concentration is an art. It is an art that leads to a more fulfilling life, more meaningful relationships and heightened self-confidence.

Conversely, lack of concentration will generate a less lucrative, less opportunistic and more stressful life. On an overarching basis, it’s best to think of lack of focus as a temporary, surmountable handicap. To overcome any handicap, all that is necessary to do is use more determination and grit and will.
