The Art of Concentration

One of the reasons why some people tend to do things incredibly faster than others is because they try to focus on the process rather than the outcome. As a result they perform the task with out too much reasoning.

When one focuses on process, the person tries to ignore over focusing on the result, thus, focus shifts to the process; bringing the plans into reality.

Consider a simple task, like washing the dishes. How do you perform this task? Do you think first of the result; the washed dishes? Or you simply focus on the task; washing the dishes itself?

Knowing when to focus on the process is very helpful in learning and achieving goals.

In an economy, for example, this is how government policies and plans are executed. There might be a lot of policies and plans, but if not executed has no effect at all; thus, goals were not attained.

Or, in other example, it might happen that an economy is the process of development - so expecting the outcome right away might not be the best attitude. Looking at the details on how the economy is moving forward - how other sectors are performing (even thou other sectors were under-performing) could create a new view.
