Pay Attention to what has your Attention

I’ve just been taking a refresher course on LinkedIn Learning on the Getting Things Done methodology by David Allen, and this here just makes me smile:

Holds true for me, my mind / subconsciousness keeps reminding me what’s important – I just have to listen 🙂

And this simple statement could also not be more true: “Your mind is for having ideas, not for holding them.” I find this particularly obvious when you are into composing songs and a nice tune or verse came to your mind and you have no trusted store for capturing it. You are then so anxious to remember it, but eventually you will still forget it, despite the effort – unless you have recorded it by then in some way, e.g. on your smartphone.
