Episode Summary:

Every TV show, YouTube channel, podcast, social media platform, News broadcast, social media influencer—all strategically want one thing: your attention. In today’s world of endless hurry and distraction, we have difficulty focusing on what’s important, and spend most of our days seeing and hearing without truly paying attention.

Our lives are full of meaning—yet we miss the giant revelations, ideas, and truths right in front of us because we weren’t actually looking for them. We must fight to pay attention to the right things, to things of worth and meaning, to changing the way we see our day so that we can truly see it for the gift it is.

Paul Angone and I talk about living purposefully in a busy chaotic world that’s clamoring for our attention.

Be sure to read to the end for a book giveaway!
