Shimmers and ripples
This is a month for changes — bringing some order to the changes to create transitions.
I read an article a few days ago about attention. We can take in only so much information per second, and we have only so many seconds in our lifetime. Think of attention as a finite resource.
The author of the article pointed out that we too often spend our lifetime’s allocation of attention without even thinking about it — another way of saying it’s important to be present and make good use of our time and energy.
But combining that idea with the fact that our brain capacity also is finite — very large but finite none the less — I realized I’m spending too much time and brain capacity on things that don’t matter. That’s a change I’m making as of now.
