[Quote No.44730] Need Area: Mind > Focus
"Know the self to be sitting in the chariot, the body to be the chariot, the intellect the charioteer, and the mind [focused consciousness] the reins." - Veda Upanishads [Hindu]
The Upanishads are part of Vedanta or the last part of the Vedas, the oldest scriptures of Hinduism created between 1500–1000 BCE. The Upanishads contain revealed truth (Sruti) about Brahman (God), the Ultimate Reality and the way of salvation (Moksha). The term Upanishad derives from upa- ('nearby'), ni- ('at the proper place, down') and sad ('to sit') and it means 'sitting near a teacher to receive the sacred teachings'. Vedanta (anta 'the end' or 'last portion') is the essence and culmination of all the knowledge within the Vedas. Vedas (vid - 'to know', 'knowledge' of the eternal truth). Of the 108 Upanishads that have been preserved 12 are considered the principle Upanishads.

[Quote No.45067] Need Area: Mind > Focus
"I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person." - Og Mandino

[Quote No.45199] Need Area: Mind > Focus
"Time is the most valuable thing that we have, because it is the most irrevocable. [Once a moment of your life is spent it is gone forever and no more can be given, bought or borrowed, regardless of whether you are the poorest of the poor or the richest of the rich. So never waste it or fail to appreciate the magic of time for it is the very tapestry of life itself.]" - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

[Quote No.45920] Need Area: Mind > Focus
"In order to maximise the happiness we feel and the competence we bring to our efforts, it is important not to let problems or failures in one need area 'infect' the other need areas of our lives. To do this requires that we: realise that while desirable it is often unrealistic to expect 'all cylinders to be firing' at the same time with any complex system which our lives certainly are; balance and compartmentalise the different need areas of our lives; and become good at focussing our efforts and attention on the need area priority of each moment within the plan we have for our lives and distracting ourselves from the things that aren't." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[Quote No.46156] Need Area: Mind > Focus
"[Learn to prioritise and focus:] When I was 20-something ... I walked into my boss’s office, the division leader ... I told him that I felt like on any given day I was facing a tsunami of things I could pay attention to, and there was no way I could work any harder to make stuff happen. I was asking for more resources, as the answer. And he sat me down as he might one of his many kids and gave me this advice: Feed the Eagles and Starve the Turkeys. Feed the Eagles. There are only a few things that matter. Know what they are. And place your energy into them. They aren’t always right in front of you so you need to look up and out more. Starve the Turkeys – lots of things are right in front of you … pecking around, making noise, and demanding attention. Because they are right in front of you, it’s easy to pay attention to them most and first. Ignore them. They will actually do fine without you." - Nilofer Merchant
