From Narrow to Wide Attention

By Lisa Chandler, 5 January, 2024

My workout coach Matt said the other day that “any kind of fitness is better than no fitness”.  In this spirit, perhaps any kind of writing is better than no writing at all?

I want to better remember a myriad of things that pique my attention and then are forgotten.  Like this:

A quote from an article in The Guardian about narrow and wide focus.

Peter sent it to me pointing out that he and I are very used to narrow focus (coaching, web development, managing households etc.). As we attempt to widen our focus, he wondered if we need to embrace “intentional unintention!”? 

Perhaps. But how do we do this after a lifetime of defining ourselves by our quests?
