Focus or Discipline?
A great many of my coaching clients ask for help with focus. They are easily distracted and stray from doing the important. As I was on the final push for the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro this past July, I asked myself what would get me to the top. I had plenty of focus. I had known my goal for a year. I had spent the previous four days climbing to get to this opportunity. In the rare thin air of 19,000' above sea level, it was not focus that got me to my goal. It was discipline. Doing what was necessary. Repetitively.
