The Lost Art of Paying Attention

multitaskingIt is easy to get frustrated when people don't pay attention. Post author Toni Bowers explains times when one person in a meeting will make a point, and then three seconds later someone else will make the exact same point again! It wastes time, it wastes energy, and (if you're like Bowers), it can waste patience. This post is Bowers' explanation of why it's frustrating to deal with people who aren't paying attention, the inherent risks of it, and what's at the core of the lack of attention through the world: multi-tasking! Perhaps by limiting one's activities to just what is at hand can make all the difference between useful time and wasted time.
