Secrets of focus: Getting all your wood behind one arrow

Most people try an unfocused, “scattergun” approach to success… They “shoot everything they’ve got,” assuming that something will succeed.

That may seem like a good idea, but it’s fatal to your sense of FOCUS…

And FOCUS is what you need to succeed.

In this video I trace the source of “focus” — and share,

  • Why the “scattergun” approach to success may seem intuitive — but it’s actually a problem you must work against,
  • Why shooting toward ONE THING is critically important,
  • Why priorities are like arms.. and how when you say you have more than two of them, you go crazy,
  • What high-tech startups, user interface designers, and Apple Inc., can teach you about focus, and
  • The path to focus that you can follow, so you have a natural flow from your “inner state” to your “external success.”

About Dmitri


  1. Judy Murdoch says:

    This was a much needed reinforcement for me that I don’t need that much to be successful in my business. And that being focused on what my heart wants most is exactly where I need to be. Big relief!

    Thanks Dmitri!

  2. Sam says:

    Dmitri – thank you for the video. I really liked how you talked about focus from several different perspectives! One very minor tip would be for you to find better words than to keep saying “thing” – e.g. article, speech, video.

    Again, a useful video (and explanation of this “wood behind the arrow” metaphor!).
