Paying Voluntary Attention Sharpens Judgment

Paying voluntary attention means concentrating our mind for a specific purpose.

Regardless of the situation, environment, or seeming triviality of the matter at hand, we should give it our best attention. Initially this can be quite difficult, but as we consciously practice it daily, paying voluntary attention will become a habit. Then, we can observe any phenomenon attentively, and whenever a problem occurs, we can get right to the core of it and promptly resolve it.

Instead of performing tasks aimlessly, we should acquire the habit of consciously paying attention, even to small daily matters.
