Become the Supreme Commander of Your Mind: How to Effectively Manage Your Attention →

simplifyyourlife:

Before: we were focused on Time Management. Getting the most out of our day. Now: our focus should be on Attention Management. Using (or taking back) our attention to focus on things that truly matter to us. Because wherever your attention goes, your life goes as well. -Danny

I like people who, despite being involved in something high profile (like movies and politics), remain simple. A good example would be director, writer and producer Werner Herzog. Here’s an excerpt from an interview.

Would you say that you are more popular today than you’ve ever been before?
I don’t know. I can’t really judge, because I do not relate to things such as popularity. It is completely vague and unknown to me what it means. I still live basically the same life. I do not have and I do not need material things. My material world is extremely small and limited.
It can’t be that small.
I own one single suit that I’m wearing right now and in the last 25 years I’ve never had another suit. And the shoes that I’m wearing I’ve been wearing for 3 years and they are my only pair of shoes. I need to replace them because they are starting to come apart.
Really?
I don’t need 20 pairs of shoes. I have a car that I’ve had for 12 years. It’s fine, I enjoy life and things are very basic. I don’t have social networks in the Internet for example. I don’t even have a cell phone. I’m probably the last holdout.
I know a few people like that… Everyone hates them because you can never get in touch with them.
I just don’t want to be available all the time. I love to connect with people but in a more fundamental way. I never go to parties, but I invite friends and I cook for them. We sit around a table, maximum 6 people, because if there are more people there is no space around the table. And when we speak to each other, everyone speaks about the same topic. Whereas when you are at a party, there are 200 people and loud music and in each corner there is a different topic, and small talk.
