Focus is Hard

Over the years, working with thousands of people, we’ve discovered that there are four main obstacles people face when it comes to being focused, productive, and creative.

Because the symptoms of these different obstacles can sometimes look similar, oftentimes when people try to treat the symptom they don’t get to the actual problem.

This is why so much productivity advice unknowingly focuses on the wrong thing.

Discussions around time management and productivity often focus on how you can get more things done in less time. And while this is great, it has unfortunately elevated efficiency as the single most-important trait in being productive.

And yet, despite all the “information” that’s out there, so many people end their week feeling frustrated, tired, and behind on their tasks.

With the Focus Assessment, you’ll find out what’s holding you back and what you can do about it. After you’ve taken the quiz, you’ll get your results right away along with a recommendation for your own Focus Pathway.
