The Life-Changing Practice of Paying Attention with Paul Angone

It’s easy to miss something you’re not looking for. Psychologists call this inattentional blindness: the failure to notice something right in front of you because other attention-demanding tasks are at hand. This week, my guest is Paul Angone, author of Listen to Your Day: The Life-Changing Practice of Paying Attention. Paul argues that inattentional blindness sums up the day-to-day of most of our lives. We’re missing important things, including revelations, ideas, and truths, that are walking right in front of us because we aren’t actually looking for them.
