“Focusing and Organizing Leads to Great Success” - Professor M.S.Rao

“In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” — Dwight David Eisenhower

There are some people who focus well to achieve success while there are some who organize effectively to achieve success. But we hardly find people who can both focus and organize activities.  

Most leaders and publications emphasize on focus to achieve the results.  In fact, the combination of both focusing and organizing lead to your greater success. When you focus intensively you don’t get distracted by others. It enhances your concentration on executing your activities. At the same time, it is essential to organize things in such a way that you don’t lose focus and waste your precious time. At times, ineffective organizing diverts the attention and decreases interest on the core activities. Organizing is all about keeping things in order to execute the tasks effectively. It is essential to plan well first to organize things in a proper order. Here goes of story of Ken and Ben who are specialists in one area:

Ken and Ben are brothers who love each other very much. Ken is very intelligent by birth and understands things very easily whereas Ben is not much intelligent who usually takes a little longer time to absorb things. Ken is highly focused on his goals and objectives and does well. Ben is highly organized who plans meticulously to keep things in order before executing his tasks. The problem with Ken is that he is lazy, and he doesn’t not keep things in order. He gets up from the middle of the work whenever he wants to do his activities thus getting distracted gradually. He loses focus and wastes his time since he is totally disorganized. The problem with Ben is that he not focused. Whenever he wants to do something he loses his focus quickly and gets distracted from his goals although he keeps things ready for execution.  

From this story it is obvious that both Ken and Ben have their strengths and concerns, and they must work together to achieve greater success in their lives.  That means people must focus on their goals and objectives first, and then keep things well organized to execute their tasks efficiently and effectively. Remember, both focusing and organizing are two sides of the same coin of success.

"No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated and disciplined." – Harry E. Fosdick
