In this era of constant distraction, focus is daunting. But psychologist and journalist Daniel Goleman says the ability to focus is the key factor in achieving success, more than IQ or social background. Goleman joins us to discuss how we can cultivate different types of attentiveness, from a narrow focus that shuts out the world to the "open awareness" that is receptive to seemingly unrelated ideas.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Daniel Goleman, author of "Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence" and other books including "Emotional Intelligence," "Social Intelligence" and "Ecological Intelligence"
