One very important lesson I learned as an operator is FOCUS. The nature of the trade demands tremendous mental strength and acuity. The ability to stay laser focused is critical. Aligning your sights on your weapon with your intended target or goal is paramount, without sight alignment you will miss your intended point of impact.
In business if you do not align your sights correctly and stay hard focused on what is in front of you, you will not reach your intended goals. Having a good sight picture affords you a clear understanding of your vision and goals. Your sight picture gives you a target to aim for. When you have front sight focus and “press the trigger”, you execute. You have taken the initiative to reach and achieve towards your defined goal.
Now you need a second sight picture, a vision that is action oriented and is your follow through. This represents confirmation that your point of aim is your point of impact.
So FOCUS gives your the ability to stay on the right target at the correct time. And it allows you to maintain situational awareness, always scanning to look for opportunities and threats.
