The Value of Paying Attention

8 May, 2022

Looking isn’t seeing.

Hearing isn’t listening.

A knee-jerk reaction isn’t thinking.

Unless you pay attention, you miss things. 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.
