Eyes on the ball

This picture shows the important of having a focus and keeping your eyes on something you want to achieve:

The picture reminded me of a great expression in English:

Keep your eyes on the ball 

Of course, it can be literal, but it also means that you 

  • have to be aware of things around you
  • have to pay attention to what you are doing
  • have to stay focused on your ultimate goal

It also reminded of a person who is always "on the ball", always alert. 

We all have our balls to go after, to keep in sight to achieve our aims.

So, how easy/how difficult it is for you to "keep your eyes on the ball"?
