That got your attention, didn’t it?
Of course it did, that’s exactly what it was supposed to do.
Now I have your attention, your attention sits right here in the palm of my hand. I can let it sit there or fidget with it , I can throw it someplace useful or I can let it wither away.
Do I still have your attention?
You will forget about this in about five minutes.
Most people retain about 10% of what they read. This makes attention a precious commodity.
I, however, have your attention. If you’re still giving it to me.
It is a world of minuscule attention spans, there will always be something prettier to look at.
We often forget that we still control who and what we pay attention to. This is a great power to hold. Do not waste it.
Are you still reading?
I just directed where you look at for the past minute or so. I don’t know who you are or even where on the planet you are but I made you look somewhere.
I think that’s pretty impressive.
So thank you for your time.
I would be much obliged if you ignored the title 🙂
