About Focus Book

Bestselling author Daniel Goleman returns with a groundbreaking look at the secret to high performance and fulfillment: attention.

'A highly readable manifesto for turning our smartphones off once in a while' Financial Times

For more than two decades, psychologist and journalist Daniel Goleman has been scouting the leading edge of the human sciences for what's new, surprising, and important. In Focus, he delves into the science of attention in all its varieties, presenting a long overdue discussion of this little-noticed and under-rated mental asset that matters enormously for how we navigate life.

Goleman boils down attention research into a three parts: inner, other, and outer focus. Goleman shows why high-achievers need all three kinds of focus, as demonstrated by rich case studies from fields as diverse as competitive sports, education, the arts, and business. Those who excel rely on what Goleman calls Smart Practices such as mindfulness meditation, focused preparation and recovery, positive emotions and connections, and mental 'prosthetics' that help them improve habits, add new skills, and sustain excellence. Combining cutting-edge research with practical findings, Focus reveals what distinguishes experts from amateurs and stars from average performers.

Focus over work..

Focus over work..

Our brain focuses best in short spurts, so dedicating 25 minutes to one activity, taking a five-minute break, and then resuming that activity or switching to another activity for another 25 minutes will help.

Do pomodoro technique..

And follow me 😉...


Being focused is always important to achieve what we want to

“Extraordinary results only come when you make a move that's way above average. Be the person who pays attention to the little things; the one who doesn’t relent until they find out what to do about a problem. This is how you achieve success — by staying focused.”



Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

It's true even metaphorically. For example, self-awareness can help prevent bad habits.
