    Reach your potential: all of it! It starts with focus. Feeling distracted? Scattered? Time's slipping away from you? You're not alone. But it doesn't have to be that way. Focus will help you get past procrastination, overcome today's 24x7 bombardment of messages and demands, escape from deadly routine, and infuse your life with creativity, flexibility, and power. Jurgen Wolff will walk you step-by-step through deciding what you really want... figuring out what's stopped you in the past... identifying and fixing disruptive influences and obstacles that keep you from focusing and using your time effectively. Finally, it will show you how to put all this information together into a workable plan you can follow again and again, whenever you set new goals for yourself. Along the way, you'll learn how to get your priorities straight, and start on the goals that matter most... do more of what you're already doing right... handle competing deadlines and projects... conquer paper, email, and meetings... put it all together, to meet all your goals! It's easier than you think. The proof is right here: all the skills and strategies you need to make a plan, go after what you really want, and get it!
