On a hunt, a predator’s only focus is its prey. Nothing can steer its focus away from the target. Its life depends on that, and nothing will ever veer its eyesight or attention on anything, except for a larger predator.
Missions and goals in life are our prey; our target. And distractions are like birds fluttering around and pests trying to irritate us.
If you allow yourself to be distracted once, that prey – that goal or mission – can flee several miles away from you. Stay focused.
And should you ever be distracted, get back to tracking that prey down and go get it.
