The Value of Your Full Attention – read this between tweets
On the other side of the digital revolution, as we clean up the rubble left from the toppled hierarchy of information, we stand and gaze in awe at where we now live- survivors of some kind of information disaster that we haven’t quite yet realized. Are we in denial? Is it similar to awakening after a natural disaster?
The old rules no longer apply. Interconnectivity was once a quest that we never could achieve. Now, Joe Grobelny suggests it may be quite the opposite.
Reading his post made me think about how rare it is to give someone my undivided attention. We message, tweet, post, and cruise our devices simultaneously while communicating with each other. As physical things become less important than virtuality, I have an idea that giving someone our true focus- completely- may soon be as valuable as gold.
