Thoughtful

Life is a series of experiences. Each experience has two ingredients– attention and interpretation.

Attention brings information from the senses into your mind. Interpretation mixes that information with the content of your memory, preferences, and principles, to create an experience.

When in hurry or impatient, our experiences are dominated by quick interpretations, so we can move to the next experience.

The key to a deeper better-quality experience is to delay the urge to interpret.

Instead, create a bigger gap between the attention and interpretations, to truly know someone or something. That will not only give you deeper insight but is also kind.
