Imagine being able to put all your thoughts and effort into just one task at a time. When you are focused, you will experience a significant increase in the quality of your work. Once you incorporate focus time into your daily schedule, you will discover that you can accomplish more in a given day than you can when you multitask. By officially scheduling a block of time for total focus, eliminating possible distractions, and addressing any anxiety associated with disconnecting yourself temporarily, you will give yourself every advantage to focus. Complete attention on a task will produce higher quality results.
People are swift to provide excuses for failing to achieve their goals. The four most common explanations I encounter are: 1. I do not have the money or means to reach my dreams; 2. It is tough for a person of my ethnicity or from my country to make it; 3. If I were the opposite sex it would be easier; and, 4. At my age, it is time to put my dreams aside. If these reasons were genuine, many of today's successful entrepreneurs would not exist. Therefore, it is time for you to realize that these excuses are not what is holding you back. The only thing stopping you from reaching your goals is your lack of drive.
If you find yourself the victim of infidelity, do not be afraid to mourn your loss and seek comfort from others in your life, understand that you are not the least bit at fault for your partner's decision to cheat on you; and, after you have gone through the grieving process you can free yourself from the shackles of resentment through forgiveness.

As researchers in education and talent, we found that the vast majority of the country’s success stories are college graduates, such as Sheryl Sandberg (Harvard), Jeff Bezos (Princeton) and Marissa Mayer (Stanford). Remember, even Zuckerberg and Gates earned admission to Harvard.
