Hi, I'm Ryan, and I think that having Focus as a theme is really cool. My friends think that I'm able to sit and study for ten consecutive hours at a time but that's not exactly the true story. In my opinion, the Focus theme is all about setting intense and frequent goals so that I'm able to achieve my outcomes daily, monthly, or however long the time horizon might be.
It gives me tremendous joy and satisfaction whenever I'm able to put my mind at a task and complete it without succumbing to distractions. To me, Focus is all about achieving a lot of work within an allotted amount of time. My friends usually call me a crazy studying robot. I study for 5 hours at a go.
School project work and meetings are other activities in which I use my Focus talent. I always strive to maintain the focus and perspective of my group discussions. When discussions go all over the place, I always make it a point to bring it back on track. Once the group's overall direction and consensus has been set, I am fixed on getting the absolute outcome.
At times, my friends will give me feedback and brainstorming ideas when the project is already in progress, but I totally ignore it. They will often label me as "rigid" or "by-the-book." Hence for the future, I hope that I'm able to be open to change and opinions.
In everyday life, I'm able to see how my Focus plays out. It's extremely useful when I want to achieve my study outcomes. With Focus, you can count on me to stay on track the entire way.
