“That's been one of my mantras—focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains”
The Yogic Practice of Focus
A regular practice of yoga and meditation naturally enhances our ability to focus in our day-to-day lives.
The ancient yogis discovered that our attention naturally flows towards that where we place our focus. There are specific eye focuses, called Drishti, that draw our attention inward and focus the mind. These techniques, combined with yoga postures and meditation, can help develop our ability to focus in our day-to-day lives.
The Information Age
For better or worse, we have an unprecedented amount of information at our fingertips and a seemingly endless ways to spend our time and energy. Going beyond the noise and distractions and honing in on what’s most important in each moment is an essential skill in this day and age.
“Really, most of us just focus on what’s in front of us. We’re too busy putting out the fires of everyday life. ”
