The Power Of Focus

This week’s focus: the power of focus

Thank God It’s this Monday and not the last.

When people were attacked at the Boston Marathon, it ignited a singular focus to find the perpetrator and bring him or her to justice. At the end of the week,

  • we see the result of the focus on one goal
  • we see the result of incredible collaboration from thousands of people who have never worked together on a project like this before to produce a powerful outcome in just over 4 days
  • we witness the euphoria of a grateful citizenry
  • we feel relief

The contrast is stark: In a few days, we’ve felt the horror of the attack and sheer jubilation as a result of the suspects being neutralized.

To all who played a hand in getting us to this point, thank you. To our first responders and good samaritans who jumped into action, thank you very much.

And, finally, to all who have been impacted by the horrific event, know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Thought for the week:
