When we focus on something we are told to focus on, sometimes we miss other things in the picture that may or may not be important. We need to learn to focus on our goals and do whatever it takes to achieve them. That can be difficult if we have attention deficit disorder, a learning disability, a brain injury, or any other one of a number of issues that affect our ability to focus.
The fascinating part is once we see something we missed the first time, there is no way we can look at the problem the way we first saw it.
This reminds me of a great quote by Oliver Wendall Holmes. Click on the image to make it larger:
