I have been researching for a while, as how does one hit excellence, how do certain people live extraordinary life with admiration, respect, positive aura and make enduring organizations and loved by family. My finding says, excellence happens when one stays focus with important yet limited key focus areas of their lives. These are around – Corporate Responsibility or Entrepreneurial Pursuit, Family & Passion.
A case in point is legendary Colman Mockler, ex CEO, Gillette (1975-1991). His life revolved around his Family, Harvard & Gillette. He is credited with meteoric rise of Gillette giving 7.39 times share price return compared to market. Most of talented people stay distracted by focusing on too many or non-important areas, which is not the best utilization of time and energy at that point of time.
Have you figured your life key focus areas, if yes, then keep aligning every minute of your daily life in pursuits of these focus areas. Your focus, time and attention is your biggest asset, use this wisely.
