Mmm, Goldfish

We’ve all heard the claim that people in modern society have got the attention span of a goldfish.

While that claim’s been debunked, attention is still one of our most valuable resources, and it tends to be in very short supply. We don’t have a lot of time for it, and everyone and everything wants a piece of it.

The most important thing we can do to help ensure our success is to figure out exactly where we’re going to allot our valuable attention. To be successful, we’ve got to decide what things warrant our attention and what things we’re going to let fall by the wayside.

And then we’ve got to act on that decision to make sure that we’re not wasting our time and attention on things that aren’t moving us any closer to our goals.
