The Value of Paying Attention

Looking isn't seeing.

Hearing isn't listening.

A knee-jerk reaction isn't thinking.

Unless you pay attention, you missithings. Important things. Subtle things. Little nuances. By paying attention, you understand more. You learn more. You feel more. You wind up not looking like an idiot when you open your mouth or put fingers to keyboard. Or, at least, not so much of one.
