First, care. Care intensely.

Excellent advice found on 43 folders: Before you sweat the logistics of focus: first, care. Care intensely. We spend a great deal of time working on “engaging the team” or engaging ourselves when what we really need to do is find the willpower to focus on the foremost problem at hand. As Merlin points out, “Obsessing over the slipperiness of focus, bemoaning the volume of those devil ‘distractions,’ and constantly reassessing which shiny new ‘system’ might make your life suddenly seem more sensible–these are all terrifically useful warning flares that you may be suffering from a deeper, more fundamental problem.”
