Signature Theme Three: Focus

After doing the Clifton Strengthfinder quizz, they presented me with my 5 top talents. My third Theme is Focus. Hmmm, what exactly does it mean? I know I can concentrate deeply, is this what they mean? Or does it mean focus as in like a cat stalking a mouse? Or is it big picture stuff, like I know when I’m going? I’ve never really done that, I think.

But they reckon I’m asking myself all the time “Where am I going?”. Start quote:  Guided by this theme of Focus, you need a clear destination. Lacking one, your life and your work can quickly become frustrating. And so each year, each month, and even each week you set goals. These goals then serve as your compass, helping you determine priorities and make the necessary corrections to get back on course. Your Focus is powerful because it forces you to filter; you instinctively evaluate whether or not a particular action will help you move toward your goal. Those that don’t are ignored. In the end, then, your Focus forces you to be efficient. Naturally, the flip side of this is that it causes you to become impatient with delays, obstacles, and even tangents, no matter how intriguing they appear to be. This makes you an extremely valuable team member. When others start to wander down other avenues, you bring them back to the main road. Your Focus reminds everyone that if something is not helping you move toward your destination, then it is not important. And if it is not important, then it is not worth your time. You keep everyone on point.
End quote

Intriguing. Not sure what to think. Gonna sleep on this tonight.
