“If you don’t pay appropriate attention to what has your attention, it will take more of your attention than it deserves.” ~David Allen

I like how David Allen, in his book Getting Things Done, compares our brain to a computer. To the RAM. If we have too much stuff going on that we’re trying to remember, it just bogs down our brain. Just like too many programs bog down the computer when there’s not enough RAM to do the rest of the things we require it to do.
