Publisher Description

“I've been a student of implementation for years, and only attention makes sense as a general proposition” Tom Peters, Passion for Excellence

To increase success of any kind, it helps a lot to clarify, mobilize, engage, strengthen, and support attention (the Guide’s chapters are grouped this way). Although the word "attention" is familiar to everyone, some¬times the dynamics of attention get overlooked. Knowing how attention works enables anyone to better use this tremendous resource.

From ancient times, coaches have guided attention, leaders have used it, merchants have manipulated it, and politicians have abused it. Today, media, family, friends, teachers, bosses, etc., compete vigorously for our attention. The competition to control our attention is often intense. When it comes to conscious behavior, attention is our most precious resource. Yet, attention can be the most elusive of assets, commandeered by outside forces and inner habits.

This is a guide for eliminating barriers to success and increasing personal effectiveness by getting control of your own attention. Use it as an operating manual to enjoyably control and develop your powers. The simple techniques will assist your getting to where you want to be with every goal and project in a smoother, easier way.

Travel the road to your desired destination with clear vision, seeing where the hindrances are and how to avoid them. Create your personalized map as a handy reference for paying attention to what is most important to you. Have a happy journey!
