When we’re driving, there are things which we need to be aware of. Things that are important, things that can cause issues if we don’t look out for them.
And then there are things which aren’t important. Things that take our focus away from those that really matter.
We’ve only got a limited attention capacity. We can’t focus on everything.
So we have to make a choice.
We have to decide what to look at and what to ignore. We have to distinguish between the critical and the irrelevant.
Are you looking where you’re going? Are you focusing on the important things, the things you need to pay attention to? Or are you letting yourself get distracted by everything else that’s happening?
Keep your eyes on the road. You can’t afford not to.
