Concentrate your efforts

When planning an action, one must allocate more than sufficient resources to help insure success. Concentrate or mass resources to execute actions quickly and effectively.

MASS means concentrate combat power at the decisive place and time. More generally the principle is concentrate your efforts. This means don't scatter your capabilities and people.

ECONOMY OF FORCE means allocate the minimum essential capabilities to secondary efforts.

The principles of MASS and ECONOMY OF FORCE are two of 9 Principles of War in the Army Field Manual (FM-3) of Military Operations.

In many situations, it is best to concentrate your efforts on those problems you can potentially solve.

Concentrate on a small number of key objectives.
