Sunday Post: Focused Attention

Sunday Post: Focused Attention

January 27,2013  : Sunday Post at Jake’s Printers theme is FOCUSED ATTENTION.

Focused attention is the cognitive process of selectively concentrating on one aspect of the environment while ignoring other things. Attention has also been referred to as the allocation of processing resources. Attention also has variations amongst cultures. Voluntary attention develops in specific cultural and institutional contexts through engagement in cultural activities with more competent community

A year ago today I was laid off from my job of seven years.  I knew that I had to take advantage of this time during unemployment to write and work from home at the beach from my laptop.  I turned my kitchen into a wall of notes so I would stay focused.   For the first five months I sat at that chair 24/7 and created this blog.  I literally had to look up the definition of blog .  The notes on the wall started off with FOCUS and WRITE .

See you at the beach!!
