Ep#6: Focus & Attention - can this game help you develop it?
May 17, 2021
Focus and attention are mission-critical when we want to succeed in a project, or change. Check out this episode, as Deirdre shares a technique to examine your thinking and train your focus and attention.
In this episode, I mention poker champion, Eric Seidel. He acted as a coach and mentor for psychologist turned poker player, Maria Konnikova. She recounts her unlikely journey in the book The Biggest Bluff - it's a great read, though I have to say, as a non-poker player, I did filter out most of the bits relating to the various games she describes! There's plenty of juicy stuff in between however, and much of it ties into what I spoke about in this episode - the thinking we don't even notice. As always, I'm not suggesting you support any particular retailer - it's just the simplest way to link :) It's great to support your local bookshop, or buy second hand if you can!

I also mentioned kirikaeshi. You can check it out from about 1:30 into the video if you're curious!

And sticking with a Japanese theme, here are some thought provoking and inspiring quotes about the 'Beginners Mind' in this short video. 

Finally, here's the link to the resources to help you get the most out of the pennyscope tool.

Don't forget to tune in next week for episode 7, when I'll be talking about luck, and how we make it. 

As always, you can connect with me over on LinkedIn, or check out the Ambition Incubator FB page. I'm interested to hear how you get on with this one!
