Noun; the action or power of focusing one’s attention or mental effort.
Today I will learn to fix the mind upon one thing at a time. Be interested in what you do. Persistently work for a definite object. Take new responsibilities. Apply yourself diligently. Let desire for achievement make you concentrate with power on the work in hand.
Hold these in my mind:
- Do only one thing at a time.
- Examine things closely.
- Avoid everything that distracts.
- Plan all work as well as you can.
- Concentrate with all your power.
I go at what I am about as if there were nothing else in the world for the time being. That’s the secret of all hard-working men; but most of them can’t carry it into their amusements. ~Charles Kingsley
