1- Yes, the world really needs more focus! Check in the last book of Daniel Goleman called “Focus”.
2- I also just came back from the inaugural MAKERS Conference that brought together leaders and innovators from corporations, not-for-profits, and government organizations committed to women’s issues. Among a lot of wonderful speakers, Catherine Steiner-Adair. I attended her eye-opening session on the damage of technology (computer, smart phones, devices…) on children and family. Check in her book: “The big disconnect”.
3- Learning as Leadership is offering its annual workshop on Time Management. A great place to reflect on the “seductive distractions of the here and now” (PS: I borrowed this sentence from a marketing email announcing “Focus”). Thankfully, it’s never too late to re-focus on our essentials.
4- Finally, don’t forget to share this sequence on your favorite social media, but only once you’ve organized your day, managed your priorities and evaluated whether or not you are distracting yourself!
Have a great focused week!
