How To Look

  • Most of us are looking at the wrong places and at the wrong things. Our attention is on what is happening on the foreground.
  • Stop listening to what people say, and pay attention to how they organise themselves in space and in time.
  • With these building blocks of observation as your guide, you can pull the scrim off your everyday life.
  • The routine of meetings, daily check-ins or your relationships at home with family are wide open for your new observational approach.
  • Set out not to make up your mind, but to watch and listen.

Love how this read makes me feel balanced somehow. Insightful indeed.
