F word and Concentration

When I was a kid, I wasn't quite as motivated as I could have been.  I wanted to do well but I did a lot of things half way  and then moved on.  Whether it was schoolwork or sports or music it was a trend for sure.   Which led to one of the most enduring conversations that I ever had with my dad.  It was all about effort and concentration.

Effort: to do things as hard as I could for as long as it took.

Concentration:  to focus on what I was doing and what I was trying to accomplish without being distracted.

As I got older - and funnier, obviously - I changed it to be the F word and concentration.  But to this day it's a lesson I practice with everything I do.

Thanks Dad!
