Apolo Anton Ohno: a poster boy for focus

I can’t get the image out of my head of Apolo Ohno staying focused and on track in 2 separate pile ups in his races. He was prepared, alert, and aware. And he didn’t get distracted from his race by other skaters’ issues.

He was a great role model for anything that requires focus–and speaking surely does. You have to determine if the disaster or distraction that happens in the vicinity of your presentation needs your attention or your presence and, if it doesn’t, get on with what you’re doing/saying. Otherwise, you’re not all there and you won’t be happy with the result.
