SOS (shiny object syndrome), barking up the wrong tree, and burnout are things that can happen when we don’t focus our attention – and be intentional about – time, money and energy.

We perform better in business (and in life) when we get out of our own way. That may happen through surrender, through focused attention, and that our life’s trials prepare us for what’s happening right now and what we’re going to face in the future. Gary Barnes, the Breakthrough Business Mastery Coach, joins Jess Dewell to talk about time, money and energy.
