Winners focus,losers spray
Winners focus on the results they want to achieve. In so doing, they are able to see what does or doesn't contribute to their goals, and avoid the things that don't help. Losers, on the other hand, focus on all the tasks in front of them. Without a clear-cut way of sorting through all the trivia, they wind up being pushed and pulled by whatever happens. The key to staying focused is having a clear vision of what you're after, and ignoring everything else.
