  • Why focus is so important?

    A radical argument by behavioral science writer Winifred Gallagher in her book Rapt-

    Much of the of the quality of your life depends not on fame or fortune, beauty or brains or what happens to happen to you - but on what you choose to pay attention to. 
    The skillful management of attention is the key to happiness and fulfillment. 
    Live a focused life!!

  • What is a state of flow?

    Another highly recommended read-
    Flow by psychology professor, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi .
    This book suggests an approach to finding success, growth and happiness through flow – an optimal experience of being, characterized by total absorption and joy in the present.

    The ability to resist mental chatter and the ability to focus fully on the task at hand, are the main attributes that can enable a state of flow.
