I have been saying this for years: Focus is the key to CEO success. "As a leader, if you lack focus, you'll eventually destroy your business. These 6 tips will help you keep on task," writes Glen Stansberry, Co-founder, Gentlemint on AMEX Open Forum. "Remember, the ability to focus is a learned habit, just like anything else. Start practicing today."
I also think Drive is pretty important. If you are truly driven to your goal, you will be focused. Not everyone has that will to be driven and focused. It's hard work and you have to give stuff up. Most don't like to sacrifice stuff.
