focus

Focus – there is nothing more focused than a dog watching a squirrel run through the tree branches, jumping from tree to tree. The dog remains focused because it knows that the squirrel is faster and trickier, and the only hope it has of catching one is through absolute focus that would allow it to take advantage of any mistake the squirrel might make. So is focus for humans — it is what lets us keep our dreams in focus and achieve them, even when the odds seem like they’re against us. At times this requires us, like a dog tracking a squirrel, to be very still and quiet, yet alert. The dog is focused with their entire body too — eyes, ears, nose — looking for any advantage — and muscles ready to pounce when needed. Maintaining this type of concentration for a long time can be difficult, but in short bursts it can be the difference between achieving our goals and having them run away from us, like a squirrel through the tree branches.
