In “Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence,” Daniel Goleman presents the nuances of life using cutting-edge scientific research and case studies from varied fields such as education, the arts, sports, and business.
Focus is always the necessary quality more so now with innumerable distractions. He discusses at length on how the teens are the vanguard of our future. He mentions about the number of texts that a teen sends and that the teenager is busy sending the text message even while riding a bike!
After having established the concept and the need for attention, he moves on to create self-awareness. A word of caution follows: One doesn’t have to speak everything that one knows. The book ends with the well-focussed leader.
It makes good reading and there is so much to resonate with and identify yourself with the book. I recommend this to those who like this genre of books.
