Main ideas of the book “Focus”

The highlights of the book are:

There are three essential focus categories for a highly functional life: inner focus, external focus, and focus on the other.

Selective attention is the ability to focus on a task, despite sensory and emotional distractions.

Emotions interfere with focus. Completing a task is more difficult when you are upset.

The attention gets stronger and sharper with use, exercise, and practice.

Every leader should focus the attention of the company where it is most needed and most productive.


Goleman starts “Focus” by presenting to us that are two types of distractions. The first one being sensorial, that comes from the perception of your senses, for example, when you notice for an instant that your tongue is touching the roof of your mouth.

And the second one is emotional, these types of distractions are more challenging, they come from the complexity of our lives, such as the loss of a friend or family member.

The author goes to say that the more you focus on one thing, the better your performance and learning are. Focusing on a goal, suppresses emotional interference, and helps you stay calm under pressure.
