Do you feel like you're "crushing it?" How productive, happy and fulfilled do you feel each day at your job? You might ask what attention has to do with it. The answer may help clear up and fix a wide range of ongoing workplace concerns including workplace error. Simply put, attention is connected to every single thing you think, feel and do at work and elsewhere. It's almost impossible to imagine, but by the end of this book you'll not only understand how this is so, but you will be tapping into your attentional system and regulating it to your highest advantage. The 12-Rules of Attention will help you train your attention to sharp, accurate, high definition...and keep it there. You'll learn:

  • How to use the entire attentional system, beyond just focus (which is only one part)
  • How to avoid fading out
  • Awareness, mindfulness and attention are not the same thing and how and when to employ each
  • A process to relieve data overflow, internal and external distraction
  • How to use "in a glance" mental capacity to "catch" more desired detail
  • How to regulate the brain's automatic, high-speed attention triggers and use them to your advantage
