Your Attention Please

EPISODE 9

Your Attention Please

It’s easy to lose yourself in a cascade of distractions. Our attention is a hard thing to keep focused. So, what happens when we lose our grip on not just our long-term goals, but the reasons we have them?

SHOW NOTES

Laurel Moffatt asks you to focus on what you find easiest to ignore. There are three layers of attention according to former Google strategist, James Williams:

Spotlight – that which engages with immediate actions, like finding your socks

Starlight – the layer of attention we give to longer-term goals, like getting a degree

Daylight – the attention that enables a person to know why we have our long-term goals in the first place.

Laurel talks about what happens when we lose our ‘daylight’, that which helps us see all of our surroundings, ourselves, and our place in the world.
