The Gift of Full Attention

In today's world of technology we often slide into the slippery slope of too much multitasking,  not enough granting of our full attention. Paying attention means consciously making good choices to focus solely on the task at hand.

Being a single-tasker can bring lots of pleasure to your day as well as prevent accidents, misunderstandings and mistakes.

Here is a list of things to consider not doing:
  • Driving and talking on the cell phone
  • Reading email and eating
  • Playing with your children and talking on the phone
  • Working with a client or on an assignment and checking email or text messages
  • Reading emails while we are on the phone (other than while being "on hold" or collaborating on the e-mail)
  • Walking the dog and talking on the cell phone
Being fully present in many of your daily actions is a gift. Give your gift of full attention to the things that count.
