Do you know the difference between a flashlight and a laser | Laser-focused
What does a laser and a flashlight have to do with business and how can it get things done?
Not just the definition:
A flashlight is an electric-powered light source; the light source is a light bulb or an LED. The electrical energy is converted into visible light. Flashlights can be hand-held or mounted to a platform. Light from a laser (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation), on the other hand, is formed by exciting electrons to a higher state. When the electrons return to ground state and are hit by a photon, they emit photons, which have the same phase, frequency, polarization and direction of travel as the original photon.

“We also know – look at Syria – dictators who have spent decades ruling through fear do not go quietly into the night any more than great powers readily abandon their profitable dominions. And I thought these finance guys were hard-nosed realists laser-focused on the bottom line.
Dream on, Mitt, dream on! Even if your dreams, to use that word you let drop on the Olympics in London and then scrambled to retract, are “disconcerting.”
I think laser-focused simply means “pinpointed” or “sharply focused.” It doesn’t seem to be any foreign word to me. However, curiously enough, this apparently easy-to-relate word is not found in any of Oxford, Cambridge, and Merriam-Webster online dictionary, or in Ngram inventory.
