Laser focus blinds us to the ideas that won’t work

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Pareto Realty TN #251071

Seth Godin does it again!

Seth’s blog post today is Subconscious pre-filtering

Seth says: “All of us get an endless supply of ideas, notions and inklings. Successful people, often without realizing it, ignore the ones that are less likely to ‘work’, and instead focus on the projects that are more likely to advance the mission.“

My commentary: “We can all learn to do this by simply knowing where we want to go and focusing on traveling the path of THAT azimuth. With this intensity, the ideas that won’t work are invisible to us“.

Such a refreshing insight on this day 🙂

I like that title line, Barry.  I've found that minds and parachutes work best when open!
