More than two decades back, the society revered the ones with high IQ.
Over time, it began giving higher importance to mastering our emotions, and understanding them in others. So EQ became the in-thing.
However, there is a third important thing beyond both of these: focus.
The top minds in the world today are vying for just one thing: your focus.
A tag in the Slack overflow.
An important WhatsApp notification.
A story “mention” on Instagram.
Someone tagged your on Facebook.
Beautiful ways to make you realize you are important.
While nothing is more important than your focus.
If you have the ability to sit and work on one thing at hand for 60, 30 or even 5 minutes at stretch, you have the biggest asset in this world: focus.
Our intelligence and emotional mastery is relevant, only when we have learnt the art of focusing on the subject at hand.
Focus is the new IQ.
