We tend to notice when things go wrong. Out of dozens of flights, we remember the one where the airline lost our luggage. Out of hundreds of visits to restaurants, we remember the one with the lukewarm rather than hot dish. Out of thousands of phone calls, we remember the ones that were dropped.
What if this week we made a note of everything that goes right? Doing so requires actively pay attention, developing an acute awareness of the world around us. I'm curious to learn what else we'll start noticing when we stop taking our daily routines for granted.
