What's your return on attention on any given day? You give loads of stuff your attention throughout the day, what return are you getting? Can we remember what was said in the meeting we sat through? Who is going to action what? We skim socials on the way to work on the bus, any return? The podcast we listened to, what did we take out, where is it stored? We go to conference after conference, sit through plenaries, what's our return? Time after time we see people in these situations without even a pen and paper. What chance do we have of a return on attention if we don't take notes? Rely on your memory? Forget it. We are forgetting how to remember. We know what to do... ask questions (helps you learn better), write it down (helps you recall better), store your notes in a Second Brain (easy to retrieve), compartmentalise your day (helps your focus on a particular task). Above all else value your time, your attention and your learning. Create the desire to be better today than yesterday... your competitor could well be about to get a better return than you! Thanks to Romain Vignes for the pic.
