Focus on the Future

The Point

One trait sets achievers, influencers, and trailblazers apart from the rest. They have a reckless focus on the road in front of them and an utter blindness to the past. They don’t get stuck on whatever sits behind them. They don’t even like to talk about the past. And, they don’t get dreamy about the future either. They simply focus on the next step.

Theory, ideas, and grudges—they ignore these to a fault. They could be better if they didn’t only look forward. But, looking forward makes up for weaknesses so much that it becomes the crutch of champions.
