Good Morning,

I recently watched the Documentary series, The Defiant Ones on HBO.  It tells the story and friendship between music legend Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre (Andre Young).  Although they were from different worlds, together they transformed contemporary culture in the process.   One part that stuck with me is when Jimmy Iovine was being interviewed he compared your vision or goals to a racetrack horse who has on a “blinker hood”.  This prevents the horse from looking back or even to the side to not be distracted by his fellow race horses.  This was such a great metaphor as we need to make sure we focus our attention straight ahead and not on anything else.

Focus Ahead
