Your inability to get FOCUSED will kill your career/program/recruiting before the competition ever gets a chance.

Kill. Competition. Focused.

Hey Coach, 


Your inability to get FOCUSED will kill your career/program/recruiting before the competition ever gets a chance.


Get Focused.


Read that again. 


How many times have you sat down to work on a project, only to find that you spend more time getting interrupted, scrolling through social media or getting lost in your own thoughts than actually making progress?


Your inability to get focused is something that can hold you back from achieving your goals.


In today’s fast-paced world, being able to focus is more valuable than ever before.


As you are all getting started this fall, I wanted to share a few thoughts about how and why to get focused. 


1. Understand the Value of Focus


You may know that focusing is important, but it’s essential to understand why it’s so critical. When you focus, you can complete tasks more efficiently and accurately, making it more likely that you’ll achieve your desired outcomes. Additionally, when you’re focused, you’re less likely to make mistakes or miss important details. You will get work done sooner so less will need to come home with you.  By recognizing the significant value of focus, you’ll be more motivated to develop this skill.


2. Identify Your Biggest Distractions


If you want to improve your focus, it’s essential to know what obstacles are getting in your way. For many people, the biggest distractions are technology-related. Try identifying the apps, websites, or social media platforms that are keeping you from getting your work done. Once you know what your biggest distractions are, you can start taking steps to eliminate or minimize them.


3. Create a Focused Environment


Your environment can have a significant impact on your ability to focus. Try to create an environment that’s conducive to productivity. This could mean working in a quiet space, eliminating clutter, or even wearing noise-canceling headphones. By creating an environment that supports focused work, you’re more likely to stay on task and complete your work efficiently.


4. Set Clear Goals and Prioritize Tasks


Without clear goals and priorities, it’s easy to get distracted. Take some time to set specific goals for what you want to achieve. Once you have clear goals, you can prioritize your tasks and create a plan of action. This will help keep you focused on the most important tasks and ensure that you’re making progress towards your desired outcomes.



As a college coach, your ability to focus can be the difference between achieving your goals and falling behind the competition.


By understanding the value of focus, identifying your biggest distractions, creating a focused environment, setting clear goals, and practicing mindfulness, you can develop the skills you need to stay on task and achieve your desired outcomes. Remember, stay focused on your goals, and success will follow.

To your success,
