Paying Attention

Some people have lots of money, some people have none.

Attention is one currency that we all have in equal measure.

Just like with money, you can invest in something by paying, or giving it, attention.

We can also waste our attention by paying too much of it to things that don’t matter.

Pay attention to someone else and you’ll be investing in something that will have a value beyond any amount of money.

Pay attention to how you feel at any given time and you’ll be investing in your physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

It’s simple but, like most things I write about, it’s often not practiced.

We all have the same amount of attention.

What will you do with yours?
