Painfully focused

(Listen to the audio version of this post at this link.)

Over focused people may become steam rollers. 

There’s nothing wrong with being focused. In fact, only some are focused enough to make a difference. Most are not. 

Some get so focused on what they are involved in that they become like a steam roller. They get pushy. I think they can become “painfully focused.” The pain is not their own, but they cause pain in others. 

Those who are painfully focused get so set on their personal interests that they forget everyone else. Such people do well with their interests and with that they value. But nothing else matters to them. 

Is that you? Does it ring a bell? Look around you. What do you see on the faces of people around you? Look within you. What is driving you forward? 

Are you painfully focused?
