There are simple principles of Focus. Perhaps, I have heard of them, or perhaps I have re-invented them. They are in my head now.

The principles of Focus

1. Focus on what you want to create, not on what you want to avoid.

2. Focus on what brings the most value to your life, work or business, instead of keeping busy.

3. Focus on tasks in chunks of uninterrupted time, such as minimum of 90-120min.

4. Focus on what will produce the most value now and in the future, not in the past.
