In a recent Glass House Conversation on the topic of Attention Span, Paul Holdengraber asked: “What does it mean to be attentive in an age of distraction?” What we pay attention to defines what we think and what we do.
In today's noisy world, what does it mean to be attentive?
Avinash gave the final word
Strangely, paying attention no longer means stopping to smell the flowers. We are bombarded with so much information, you need to be on your toes to find the stories and experiences you want. I guess being attentive means setting up the right filters. Then again, I might be unduly influenced by the fact that I just found out how to make google alerts work for me :D
