“…he gained a chance to understand the mental workings of these Olympic athletes. Preparing for the broadcast, Jones interviewed the rowers and asked them what they would do in cases of rain, strong winds, or breaking an oar. The  response was always the same: “That’s outside my boat.””

Quit Managing Your Time… and Start Managing Your Attention by Lee J. Colan & David Collrell.

Stay inside your boat, be focused

Stay in the moment, creates presence

1 thing at once, and make sure that it is the most important thing, creates focus

Make sure you focus on what you can control and don’t waste energy on things outside of your sphere of influence
