The Girl that was Drawing
On Monday night I was down at my Children’s High School for a Year 7 information night. After the speeches we toured the school to see what the school had to offer. We toured all areas of the school. We got to see each of the subject areas do hands on demonstrations of what they had to offer the students. I must say that I am very impressed with the way the school has treated two of my children and I look forward to a third child joining them next year.
As we toured the Art area of the school there were several current students participating in a number of artistic activities. With over a thousand people filing through the school for the tours, there was plenty of movement and noise. There was one girl among all the chaos that seemed to be immune to it all. She was drawing and as we filed through the room, she did not change her focus from her drawing. She did not look up. She did not say anything. She was fully engaged in her drawing.
I thought to myself, how good it must be that she is able to focus on her drawing among the chaos. I was very impressed and thought that she is either a very focused person or she is very passionate about drawing. Either way I was impressed and wondered if I could be that focused in life. And if I could be that focused, what could I achieve?
- Have you ever been that focused?
- What were you able to achieve?
- What helped to get in the Zone and be that focused?
