…everything else falls away.
Flow is great. Focus is a skill.
(Cal Newport would tell you it’s the new superpower. Here’s an affiliate link to his book “Deep Work” on Amazon; it’s worth the read!)
As always with such lovely phrases, it’s also easy for it to become overblown and turn negative:
When you focus on what you want, everything else falls away.
Like, your family. Your kids growing up, making experiences you were never a part of because you were so focused on something else.
Your health, because you are so focused on the hustle and grind, you forgot to take care of yourself.
Your success, because you focused so much on what you wanted, you never noticed that the actual path to success just passed you by.
