In Others’ Words: Are You Interested?
You know how you get to the end of a day and you don’t remember what you did?
Or is that only me that happens to?
Sometimes I’m busy, busy, busy … and yes, I’m doing things. But sometimes what I’m really doing is not paying attention. I’m juggling several things at one time, which in a way is saying that none of the things I’m doing warrants my full attention. And then there are those times I just don’t care what’s going on. I underestimate the importance of what’s going on … or who’s talking … and really, that’s a “me” issue, not a “them” issue.
An important part of living is being interested in what’s going on around me day by day, hour by hour. Paying attention. Acting like the people in my life — the ones I already know and the ones I need to get to know — are important … because they are.
In Your Words: So, I’m curious — what’s caught your attention this week? People? Events? What’s surprised you? And what can distract you from the things in life you want to focus on?[Tweet “In Others’ Words: Are You Interested? #InOthersWords #lifequotes #payattention”] [Tweet “”There are no uninteresting things, only uninterested people.” #quotes #GKChesterton #payattention “]
