Abstract— The purpose of the study was to understand reasons behind the successful goal achievement in a highly regulated work place by Corporate Managers. In the sample, Western Australian Corporate manager’s focus and energy quotients and how it affects successful goal achievement was addressed in the research problem, “the co-relation between “being overly engrossed with work” and achieving results”. After reviewing existing literature, researcher adopts a qualitative research design than more dominant quantitative data in studying Corporate Managers. Managers are likely to view the phenomenon of organizational growth and personal development differently in the current turbulent Australian economy thus we emphasis on identified key factors (Focus & Energy) that will enhance and contribute to the way managers achieve results in todays multi-generational Australian workforce. The basic question arises does “being busy” produce the desired results for the business? Is there a positive co-relation between been busy and achieving set goals? The answer based on research is “NO”. To clarify the relationship between “Focus” and “Energy” and their impact on each other, the study has been carried out addressing five business segments in Corporate Australia with the use of stratified and cluster sampling. Further Bruch and Ghoshal (2003) outline in research findings on “Unleashing Organizational energy”, Mintzberg (1973) “Strategic apex” in Management theory are been used to the focus-energy matrix ensuring the right delivery of clarity. In conclusion, having the right blend of focus and energy would ensure purposeful and effective utilization of time for the managers and workers to achieve organizational goals.

Index Terms— Busy, energy, focus, work balance.
