Sample Book Insights:

#1 Focus and self control are important life skills that we need to learn if we want to achieve our goals amid everything else that’s going on.

#2 The researchers found that three skills were most important for children’s later success in reading and math: attention skills, which are the ability to focus and concentrate; good math and reading skills; and self-control, or the ability to delay gratification.

#3 Focus is the ability to concentrate on a task or project for a period of time, despite internal and external distractions. It is a skill that children develop as they grow up, and adults should develop as well.

#4 Focus is a skill that can be improved by setting goals, rewards, and incremental steps. It can be improved by listening to music, breaking down big projects into small, easy steps, and reminding yourself how great it will feel to complete something.
