Do you constantly start things but never finish them? Do you fail to make decisions and procrastinate? Do you find yourself distracted by "the next new thing" and then you attention fades when the newness wears off? If you answered yes to any of these question you may be suffering from Shiny Object Syndrome. Shiny Object Syndrome is a disease of distraction typically affecting entrepreneurs. It is called Shiny Object Syndrome because it is the equivalent of a small child chasing after something shiny and new. The issue with those who have it is that they are constantly abandoning their focus because they are always drawn to new ideas.
To quote today's special guest, Life Coach David Wood, " Shiny Object Syndrome is a freakin' epidemic among high performers, and the human mind is like a monkey on crack!" David will explain what he means by that.
David says that it creates stress and overwhelm but that it can be easily overcome. His process is simple:1) Choose the Right Mountain. 2) Climb Twice as Fast. His clients create extraordinary results by developing laser focus and doubling productivity.

David coaches rock star entrepreneurs and executives to overcome Shiny Object Syndrome, and transition to peaceful focused action.
