  3. 14. Cathy Davidson <ul><li>Now You See It: How the Brain Science of Attention Will Be Transformed </li></ul>
  4. 15. Focus <ul><li>“ Without focus, the world is chaos; there’s simply too much to see, hear, and understand, and focus let’s us drill down to the input we believe is most useful to us. Because focus means selection, though, it leaves us with blind spots, and we need methods for working around them.” </li></ul>
  5. 16. Was <ul><li>“ For over a hundred years, we’ve been training people to see in a particularly individual, deliberate way. No one ever told us that our way of seeing excluded everything else. It’s hard for us to believe we’re not seeing all there is to see.” </li></ul>
  6. 17. IS! <ul><li>“ Learning is the constant disruption of an old pattern, a breakthrough that substitutes something new for something old. And then the process starts again.” </li></ul>
  7. 18. Attention! <ul><li>“ Even multitasking is really multidistraction, with attention not supplemented, but displaced from one point of focus to another.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ But, that’s not the whole story. Sometimes there is continuity as we move from one distraction to another…What makes the difference between the forgettable and the important is what I call learning.” </li></ul>
  8. 19. “ The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” Steve Jobs
