How To Build A Longer Attention Span (and a Change Blog-O-Rama)

I’ve published a post at The Change Blog called “How To Build a Longer Attention Span.”  It’s about how practicing holding your attention on an object, or on your breathing, as meditators often do, isn’t just helpful for getting centered as you meditate — it can also help you stay focused on a project at work for a longer period of time.  This is a great technique if you want to be able to get a lot done in a single sitting, instead of constantly getting antsy and winding up on Facebook or Minesweeper as you work.

I also noticed that I’ve practically got enough Change Blog posts to fill a book (publishing magnates take notice :) ) — here are some past highlights that I think you’ll enjoy:
