Adventures in Awesome Living

Research by the National Science Foundation and other leading research institutions show that we have as many as 50000 thoughts per day.

We might have a thousand things on our mind but we clearly can’t succeed at a thousand things.

Whether you’re producing pizza or software products, the fact remains the same: successful people and successful companies have a single-minded focus.

This laser like focus channels their energy into the achievement of their goal and ensures that their energy isn’t wasted. After all, what’s the point in watering the concrete?

Warren Buffett (best advice he ever received – 2 min video) became the world’s most successful investor by focussing. When asked about his power of focus, he replied, "I can’t be involved in 50 or 75 things. That’s a Noah’s Ark way of investing – you end up with a zoo that way. I like to put meaningful amounts of money in a few things."

Successful people don’t dabble and are quite often only great at one thing.

When you focus the sun’s ray through a magnifying glass, the concentration of energy can start a fire. Focusing your energy on one thing will help you to fire your own success.



The key to our success is a fanatical focus on doing one thing well – Tom Monaghan, founder of Domino’s Pizza

If you want to be a great software company, you have to be only a great software company – you can’t dabble in other things – Bill Gates

Singleness of purpose is one of the chief essentials for success in life – John D. Rockefeller Jr., philanthropist

To do a good job of something you’ve got to concentrate in one area, not be a jack of all trades – Ted Turner, founder of CNN



Pure, comedy genius in the shape of the inimitable,
