On the podcast today, lessons from The West Wing, Napoleon, and Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid.
The number one thing I’m driving at in this podcast is that you need to pay attention to the little things — to focus on the here and now.
The greatest risk to you on the road is not the driver who runs the red light, it is the driver barrelling toward the intersection with no signs of slowing down that you did not see coming. Maybe you were changing the playlist on Spotify and looked away for just a few moments.
Pay attention. Keep your concentration here and now where it belongs.
Abstract fears distract us from clear and present dangers. Distraction imperils us all (more on that in the next post) more than any zombie apocalypse scenario you could dream up.
Focus. Look up.
This is the way.
