Focus cues the direction of attention and effort to the most relevant specifics  (perceptions, emotions, thoughts, and/or actions) of a given environment while downgrading or ignoring the less relevant elements.

Prompt example:

Pay attention to what happens to the backing soda after the vinegar is added.
