did not like it

Could be my mindset, but the thoughts "uh, gotta slog through that new book before I can get another one...." and "uhg, don't like the reader.....overly clever writing....must finish, have to finish..." kept coming to mind. Who says I must slog through and finish before moving on? Oh, that was only me!

After listening to 3.1 (out of 7 or 8) CD's, I happily returned this book and checked out another. Not that I didn't learn anything. Well I didn't. I might have eventually. But I did gain some reinforcement that how I focus and attend to my life is normal and also, dare I say it, efficient! Yay! Since FUN has always been an important ingredient in my enjoyment of whatever I'm doing, I am happy to report that I officially have researched (by Phd.'s!) evidence that creating games out of mundane or not-so-mundane tasks is a very efficient way to accomplish all projects! Plus other stuff....

Before I read the book, I wrote:
The subject of the latest research on focus and attention and how we manage these skills and the impact on our lives grabbed me right away. I am interested in critical thinking, discernment and understanding human behavior to increase satisfaction with my friends and family. Here we go!
