Be present. If there’s one thing I strive for every time I do something, it is to stay focused. It’s easy to be distracted when you’re out with friends or doing something on your own, but when you really take the time to concentrate on an activity, you can get a lot more done than if you were to multitask. When someone speaks to you, listen. When you’re reading, absorb the information. When you’re outside, disconnect from the grid. When you’re fully present, you start to see and hear differently because you get the entire picture.
