In this episode Liz explains what Attention Management is and how it differs from Time Management and some tools and techniques for being proactive about managing your attention.
There is a school of thought that Time Management is an outdated concept.
Instead it’s about Attention Management - switching your attention to focusing on achieving a specific result.
Maura Thomas defines it as
“...the ability to consciously direct your attention in any given moment, to be more proactive than reactive, and to maintain control rather than inadvertently relinquish it. It’s about regaining control over your attention and thereby taking control of your life. Attention management empowers your productivity.”
