Don’t Just Absorb. Engage!

The next time you watch a movie or read a book, don’t let the experience end after the credits roll or the last page is turned. Take some time to write down your own impressions of the material. Think of three alternate endings. Introduce the work to a friend and encourage them to discuss their interpretations with you. The power of attention isn’t just about absorbing the information that comes to you. It’s about learning to process it as well.
