Confucius said, “He who chases two rabbits catches none.” In the business world, many entrepreneurs suffer from “shiny object syndrome” and are continuously distracted by the next big thing. So, how do you become focused and put your best effort into catching “the right rabbit,” so to speak?


Penny Zenker, “The Focusologist,” is here to show us. She breaks it down into three simple tactics: step back, get perspective, and realign. When you’re not getting the results you want, it’s useful to look at the big picture, open up to different solutions, and adjust your process to center around one goal. Achieving focus isn’t rocket science — all you need to do is find the reset moments and repeat these three simple steps!

Penny shares her three steps to gain focus, common mistakes unfocused entrepreneurs make, and the value of concentrating on what you already have.
