1 00:00:12 Let’s address one concern at a time,
2 00:00:16 one particular issue at a time.
3 00:00:19 Because this is like an engine.
4 00:00:27 So I cannot help you to understand every component right off the bat.
5 00:00:39 We have to look at one screw at a time.
6 00:00:43 Let’s start with the first question from you.
7 00:00:46 Ask a very specific question about this big problem that we are facing.
8 00:00:54 Just look at one angle [at first].
9 00:00:57 [Let me] give you an example.
10 00:01:17 My big problem is as I told you.
11 00:01:20 But right now I don’t know if I want to
12 00:01:26 terminate this meeting so I can go to lunch or not because I’m hungry.
13 00:01:33 So, that thing is one percent of one percent of one percent of this big problem.
14 00:01:40 But it’s a problem
15 00:01:43 It’s easier for us to tackle one tiny problem at a time so that we
16 00:01:49 you and I learn how to work together before we enter the cave
17 00:01:57 You get me
18 00:01:59 You and I need to solve one tiny problem first.
19 00:02:04 You may want to shut that down.
20 00:02:07 Yeah
21 00:02:11 You and I should practice working together to solve a tiny problem outside of the cave first.
22 00:02:18 Right
23 00:02:20 Because when we enter the cave, my life depends on you.
24 00:02:26 Your life depends on me.
25 00:02:28 If we don’t know how each other works…
26 00:02:30 Right
27 00:02:34 our relationship breaks down before it has a chance to start.
28 00:02:38 Right
29 00:02:39 So
30 00:02:43 Look at one tiny problem in the big picture and ask me a question about that first.
31 00:02:49 Give me a chance to feel like I am successful in helping you [at] first.
32 00:03:07 How do you know what to focus on the most?
33 00:03:15 The first step is to understand what focus means exactly, objectively.
34 00:03:25 [The meaning has to be] applicable in every context.
35 00:03:28 Do you know what focus means?
36 00:03:31 To me, I’d say…
37 00:03:37 …unshakable, concentration–meaning concentrating on one thing.
38 00:03:44 Putting all your energy towards one thing.
39 00:03:47 You’re relabelling the concept.
40 00:03:51 Relabelling doesn’t explain.
41 00:03:54 Relabelling doesn’t define.
42 00:03:56 So, what’s concentrating?
43 00:03:59 Focus 🙂
44 00:04:01 There you go; you’re not doing the job you’re asked to do.
45 00:04:05 Try again.
46 00:04:08 If you don’t understand the concept, you cannot practice it.
47 00:04:17 Doing
48 00:04:19 Focus is the thing that drives.
49 00:04:27 You can focus on this conversation
50 00:04:31 but you also need to be aware of the sound environment
51 00:04:34 So, when a big truck goes by,
52 00:04:37 suspend our conversation.
53 00:04:40 Focusing doesn’t mean that you give up all the senses.
54 00:04:46 You cannot focus if you’re not aware of what’s going on around you.
55 00:04:52 So what’s focus?
56 00:04:58 I’m going to give you a chance to define that first.
57 00:05:07 Focus is being able to do the thing that your heart desires.
58 00:05:17 starting from
59 00:05:23 with or without having a full picture of what it is
60 00:05:26 It’s just being able to…
61 00:05:29 For me, to focus, like, I focus on boxing, training
62 00:05:33 When I focus I just have a mission and goal in my mind.
63 00:05:37 I’m trying my hardest to attain that goal that I’ve already seen in my mind.
64 00:05:42 I just want to bring it to my reality and I’m just focusing…
65 00:05:45 I just put all my energies towards my information.
66 00:05:48 My information is leaving… going there.
67 00:05:52 My energy is leading me there.
68 00:05:56 I’m immersed in that one thing, you know.
69 00:05:58 I know, that’s what I think is focusing.
70 00:06:01 At the same time, you know, as human beings.
71 00:06:04 We are all expressions of different energies you know so
72 00:06:07 There are so many things you can get attracted to.
73 00:06:09 There’s so many things that are…
74 00:06:11 also so many things but numerous things that right now myself
75 00:06:14 Like I’d say…
76 00:06:16 I feel pulled towards boxing.
77 00:06:18 When you see me raising my hands like this…
78 00:06:22 If my hands are close to my face, then you are at the solar system level.
79 00:06:30 But if you see me extending my hands all the way,
80 00:06:33 you’re talking about the galaxy again.
81 00:06:36 know it’s okay so let’s consider this to be a conversation between you and your son.
82 00:06:42 and he’s in first grade.
83 00:06:46 Explain to him what focusing means.
84 00:06:49 Try again.
85 00:06:50 when I clap, it’s for my film editing purposes.
86 00:06:55 It’s not for you.
87 00:06:57 So that, so that I can, I know how to align all the segments.
88 00:07:15 If I was to talk to my son is first-grade, I’d tell him focus is…
89 00:07:22 He’s right here, look at him.
90 00:07:25 Focus on your son and explain to him what focus means.
91 00:07:30 Look at him, keep your eyes on him.
92 00:07:35 Your facial expression is not for my father to a son.
93 00:07:39 You need to put… You need to wear your father hat right now…
94 00:07:42 and you have to show that your facial expression is for your son not for me
95 00:07:58 Ah
96 00:08:04 Dad, what focusing means?
97 00:08:10 I see
98 00:08:22 Doing something… Completing the task without distraction.
99 00:08:30 I don’t know. I can’t explain it.
100 00:08:33 Okay, now you see why most people fail to focus.
101 00:08:38 Not because they don’t want to but because they don’t understand the concept
102 00:08:46 Therefore, they fail to practice [it].
103 00:08:51 Thanks goodness, we had Steve Jobs.
104 00:09:00 In 1997, I believe that’s the year,
105 00:09:09 he stood in front of his engineers and…
106 00:09:15 You know Steve Jobs, of course.
107 00:09:20 and he explained to his engineers what focus means
108 00:09:26 and how to practice it
109 00:09:29 And that is what I would go by.
110 00:09:37 Focusing; that means, saying no.
111 00:09:47 to everything else.
112 00:09:59 Doesn’t that still apply to immersing yourself to one thing?
113 00:10:03 If you immerse yourself to something I’m assuming…
114 00:10:06 That’s not saying NO.
115 00:10:11 You should say NO to everything else?
116 00:10:15 Yes
117 00:10:17 Hmm
118 00:10:22 And the reason why he had this conversation because
119 00:10:27 I speculate that half of his engineers hated him for changing his mind
120 00:10:34 And that’s why he explained to them:
121 00:10:37 I’m saying No because the company has to focus on this but not that.
122 00:10:44 That’s why I have to say No to that even though I understand that you guys put in a lot effort for that.
123 00:10:56 But we are focusing on this.
124 00:11:04 Until you know how to practice the art of saying no, you don’t know howto practice focusing
125 00:11:12 for the thing that you’re trying to concentrate on.
126 00:11:50 That’s deep.
127 00:11:52 That’s deep.
128 00:11:53 The reason why you heard a long pause, a big silence from me
129 00:12:03 before you said, “That’s deep”,
130 00:12:06 because I was practicing respect of reciprocation
