Some Thoughts About Attention

Updated: Jan 21, 2020

Day 328


We live in a world full of distractions with competition for our attention coming from countless sources all around us. It is important to make sure we keep our attention focused in a productive manner if we ever want to get anything worthwhile accomplished.

I came across this nugget in Keep Going, by Austin Kleon:

"Your attention is one of the most valuable things you possess, which is why everyone wants to steal it from you. First you must protect it, and then you must point it in the right direction."

Be intentional about where you aim your focus. Give your full attention to the things that deserve it.

Kleon has more to say on the topic:

"...a life is made out of paying attention to what we pay attention to."

"When you pay attention to your life, also helps you fall in love with your life."

That last quote was one of my favorites from the entire book because it sums up a lot of the reason that my daily writing habit exists in the first place. That reason can also be foundin the URL of the blog.

I love my life and all of the people in it...well, most of them.

I want to help you, or someone else, figure out how to love life a little bit more as we seek to learn and grow and improve daily. Let's Live Enamored together.
