What is the old adage, "Can't see the forest for the trees?" I'm a bit of an odd duck and could never really wrap my mind around that. But let's talk "focus." In focus, out of focus. Headaches, toothaches, butt ache...
Is it distractions that take away from your focus or is it the lack of your own internal system unwilling to slow down?
