Next on Hollis’ shortlist is the need for individuals to focus on one goal at a time. The author makes a claim that women have a tendency to want to do a lot of things, but in bits. She starts by first acknowledging that everyone has “lists of things” that they would want to accomplish, while advising that a person should always focus on one thing at a time. After achieving the current, one can then move on to the next. Hollis proposes a formula for helping women decide what goal to focus on — which she calls “10, 10, 1 (Ten years. Ten dreams. One goal)”. She explains that this formula should help a person decide what they want to be in ten years, what ten dreams they would want to make a reality, and which one of the dreams a person should turn into a goal and focus on at a time.
