Attention and Focus

Attention and Focus

  • Attention is an executive skill that can be developed. 
  • Our brains can be trained to pay attention to one thing at a time.
  • Paying attention to one thing in the present moment takes practice. 
  • Success or failure should not be based on your perception of slowing your thoughts. 
  • Just Practice.
