Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #062 — Paying attention has a cost.

There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but there is free rent. Every uncleared assumption or uncleared hurt or uncleared slight … every moment you spend thinking about it those things is like giving someone free rent in your head.

In a famously misquoted line, Henry David Thoreau took this idea to an extreme:

“The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.”

That’s why we say “pay attention.” To everything you give your attention you are ascribing value. Your attention is a currency that, given our distraction-rich, information-saturated culture, has a very high value.

Are you spending wisely?
