Time flies away so fast that decades seem to disappear in the blink of an eye. So, by investing your attention wisely, you can live life to the fullest.
Attention is priceless and determines the quality of life we live.
Most people don’t match their attention with their intentions. They just drift from one activity to the other. But if you want to become really successful, you must learn to direct attention at will. Successful people spend their attention on high-priority tasks such as learning, working, and spending time with loved ones.
Become aware of where you direct your attention.
Take stock of where your attention goes. Note down all the activities and the time you spend doing them. You may want to keep a notepad with you for a whole day to do this exercise.
Prioritize your attention.
Remove all the unnecessary things from your list. These include aimless internet surfing, staring at the ceiling because you don’t have a to-do list, watching four hours of TV, etc. You can save a couple hours every day with this simple practice. To take it a step further, prioritize your attention by doing the most important task first thing in the morning.
