Focus means picking among alternatives and giving your energy to only a few things.
The key to focus is leverage.
The principle of leverage stands behind the principle of focus.
Leverage is defined as “making a small investment to gain a high return”.
In this sense it is choosing the two or three things to give your leadership energy to that, when accomplished, will provide the greatest return towards gaining ground on your vision. It’s knocking over the biggest dominoes that will cause a succession of other dominoes to fall without much effort.
Usually high leveraged, focused leadership endeavors, are future oriented and not urgent.
