Overview

What are you supposed to do with your life? What deserves your limited reserve of energy, attention, and time? What's making you anxious or frustrated right now? What would make you happy and fulfilled?



The world is shouting its answers to these questions, but the real answers are quieter-and right in front of you. They are in the details of your day, every day. But we usually look right past them. Or we are simply so distracted we've lost the ability to see and hear the life going on right in front of us. If we're not intentional about changing this trend, this "inattentional blindness" can rob us of years of joyful productivity. But when we learn to observe the details of our days, we discover new lenses through which to see and new practices of paying attention that add meaning to life.



Stop drifting. Stop worrying. Stop living distracted. Walk purposefully through life with a firm grasp on what's important to you and what you're working toward-all by listening to the details of your day.

In this accessible guide, Angone (25 Lies Twenty Somethings Need to Stop Believing), creator of millennial lifestyle platform All Groan Up, dials in on the importance of paying attention. While “every day we are given gifts of clarity,” Angone argues, “inattentional blindness” prevents people from recognizing them. The author first investigates different aspects of attention, exploring why distractions can be so irresistible, how downtime can help one focus, and ways to be present in conversations. Next, he outlines different “mindset models,” such as the “Monk Model,” which centers quiet as a way to access inner wisdom (“Choosing silence is choosing to pay attention to your soul”), and the “Entrepreneur Model,” which advises actively attuning to one’s problems in order to find creative solutions. As well, the author writes, improving one’s attention can engender a closer relationship with God (“If our ears are constantly filled with noise...how can we hear His voice?”). Communication tips (make eye contact, avoid self-talk for the first five minutes of a conversation) and prioritization strategies (consider important relationships and “one action you can take this week to pay more attention to each”) round things out. Angone’s encouraging attitude is infectious, and the advice, while not revolutionary, is solid. Readers will appreciate this down-to-earth entry. (Apr.)
