A couple years ago a client gave me a testimonial that said, “Dina helps me focus on what I CAN do instead of focusing on what I CAN’T.”

This was such a perfect way to describe coaching and overcoming Focus Errors.

When lawyers come to me, they have Focus Errors. Over the years they’ve created the habit of focusing on what HASN’T happened yet instead of what WILL happen.

Another way of saying this is that they focus on past failures instead of future successes.

Or they focus on the results they HAVE versus the results they WANT.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  1. what a Focus Error is
  2. a few of the most common Focus Errors I see, and
  3. how you can begin shifting your focus to get the result you want

If you don’t have the result you want or feel overwhelmed, frustrated or stressed, chances are good you have a Focus Error.

The good news is, your focus doesn’t have to be perfect for you to make progress towards your goal. This isn’t a practice that requires perfection.

It just takes noticing what’s happening in your brain more and more, so you catch it faster and faster.

Listen in to begin shifting your Focus Errors and getting the results you want in your life and your law practice.
