What one trait is behind the success of all people that have performed massively better than the average person?

Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, some of the world’s wealthiest and most influential people, have all attributed their success to one factor. According to Alice Schroeder, in 1991 when Bill Gates’ dad asked Buffett and Gates what the most important factor for their success was, they both gave the same answer, “FOCUS.”

Focus always precedes success.

Success is not possible without a clear focus on what matters most. And as leaders we constantly need to remind ourselves this vital truth.
