The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change, until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds.*
(R. D. Laing)
Seeing is an art that must be learned and relearned.**
Erwin McManus writes in his book on living life to the absolute fullness:
The most important things in life require that you bring your own urgency. Passion is the fuel that brings urgency.^
When we notice what we’re passionate about, we have a particular way of seeing, a focused way. The thing about passion is that it not only comes with focus but also with momentum, it carries us forward.
Another thing about passion is that it not only helps us to see more clearly what we know but also what we do not know.
