Switching Attention - Deepstash

Switching Attention

The downside to attention is missing other important stuff when you're paying attention elsewhere.

Switching attention is a skill that needs practice.

You practice it by:

  • becoming good at spotting signals that suggest you should change your attention
  • learning how to balance your brain and gut instinct
  • being genuinely open to ideas, thoughts and attitudes from other people
