Attention – The Rarest & Purest Form of Generosity

In today’s world, it often seems like no one is really paying attention – that no one is really listening.

I’m always trying to learn and pick up ways of saying things and I heard someone say this recently, “Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.”

Let’s talk about that today because it’s really important to understand and practice this habit of paying attention.

People that are paying attention ask good, clarifying questions because they are giving you the generosity of their attention (to truly understand and be a benefit to you).

Judge a man
by his questions
rather than
by his answers.

– Voltaire

What distracts you from paying attention?

What does distraction cost you?

  • It costs you relationships, both professionally and personally.
    This is a heavy price to pay for not paying attention.
  • It costs you productivity.

What distractions can you eliminate?

If you love and care about people and if you love and care about your job, give your attention to what you are working on and the people you are working with.
