“You can change focus instantly. Start noticing what you’re noticing. You have more to do with setting up than you realize.” David Allen

“There’s all kinds of data. How well is this room constructed? Who’s wearing glasses? How many men and women are in this room? What’s the makeup of the population of this room?

“You just haven’t noticed even tho it’s right here. Unless of course, you’re into building construction. Or you’re an optometrist. Or into affirmative action.

“In which case you wonder why everyone around you hadn’t noticed something that is very relevant to you.

“What is it that creates relevance? Relevance has to do with focus. If you focus on eyeglasses, these things kind of pop out.

“You can change focus instantly. Start noticing what you’re noticing. You have more to do with setting up than you realize.”
