Not a new thought, but valuable enough to bear consistent repeating…
FIRST QUESTION: What and Who Do You Pay Attention To?
Think about those things and people who capture your interest or demand your energy. Consider what is happening to your time and energy every day, over a week, and through the seasons.
Sometimes we have no choice, but to pay attention to something. Our work may require this of us, and we cannot choose not to pay attention without risking significant job actions. Of course, sometimes we talk ourselves into thinking that we “have to” focus on some work-related issue, when no particular evidence other than our own thinking supports this.
Other times, when we are honest, we choose the level and quality of our focus in an area and on a person. We probably have much more freedom to change in these instances than we might think.
