People say they do not have enough time to meditate, but the truth is that anyone can meditate anytime, anywhere.
Focus is the first step on the path of meditation - the spiritual path. In Buddhist tradition, Samadhi means to be in one place. In Yoga, it means the state of awareness is in one place. When we look at something, naturally we begin to analyze it, and are thus in two places, causing disturbances in the mind and body. Therefore, in Yoga practice, we can be in only one place. When we focus, our awareness is in only one place, this is meditation.
