Awake

To stay eager, to connect, to find interest in the everyday, to notice what everybody else overlooks – these are vital skills and noble goals.*
(Rob Walker)

We may hold generosity as a value, but the virtue is behaving generously.**
(Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz)

I look more than I see,
Hear more than I listen,
Believe more than I behave;
Half-asleep, I am trying
To wake up.

(*From Rob Walker’s The Art of Noticing.)
(**From Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz’s The Power of Full Engagement.)
