Drew's Words of Wisdom:
Focus. How is your focus? What is focus? We've heard the word focus over and over again in our lives. One of the most famous scenes in Karate Kid is Mr. Myagi saying "Focus!" Can you take every distraction around you and block them out in order to do a specific task and a specific time. That is focus. Singularly focusing on one thing.
I was talking to Karla last week. Other than myself, she is the only person that I've met that doesn't hear the music when she's working out. The weird part is that I can sing along to every song, but if you ask me what was playing after the workout, I'll have no idea. Because for that 5 to 30 minutes I am locked into what I am doing. It's not intensity, it's focus. It's directed attention to the task at hand. So the next time you are in the gym, or heck, even driving somewhere, see if you can block out distraction and just focus on one thing. Be safe.
