I would say it is a difference in perspective. To have somebody do something is to get them to do that thing. Example:Originally Posted by jiang
- Woman: Could somebody help me carry these things to my car.
Man: I'll have somebody help you with that.
On the other hand, if I have somebody doing something he is doing it right now. Example:
- Woman: What is Jim doing?
Man: I have him cleaning out the garage.
To be focused is to keep your goal in mind and not allow your attention to stray from your objective.Originally Posted by jiang
Having a goal keeps you focused, but it doesn't keep you focusing. If anything keeps you focusing it would be your attention span or your ability to concentrate.
I am afraid I haven't been much help with that one.
