I have got a bad, bad habit of setting things down, not paying attention to where I put them, and then not being able to find them. At this moment, I cannot even remember where I put my keys, I have no idea where my phone is, and I really hope that my wallet is somewhere in my room–because I haven’t been able to find that in a couple of days. A few weeks ago, I set a library book down on the train, and left it there. It isn’t even that I am forgetful–it is just that I forget to pay attention when I set things down.
Challenge #119, April 29, 2011: Today, pay attention to what you do. Take notice of the routine actions and be aware of even the smallest things that you do. You may be able to get out the door on time because you won’t need to spend ten minutes searching for your keys!
