Focus is falling in love

Focus is not attained by trying. Focus is falling in love with the effort, with the moment, with the possibilities.

Do not tightly clench what you seek to focus upon. Rather, gently let go of all else.

If you force your focus, you are focused on your own forcefulness and not the work. When you have the desperate need to focus, you zero in on the desperation and not the effort.

Focus is a joy. Allow it to softly take hold, feel the joy, the sense of satisfaction, of purpose, and let the feeling grow of its own accord.

Focus is not about you, not about your abilities, not about your ego. Genuine focus is genuine care about what you’re doing.

Let the joy of focus be yours. And generously let goodness and value flow from all you do.

— Ralph Marston
