What you pay attention to is key to what you see and ultimately what you know. Next important is how you pay attention. Over-specializing is a mistake, like taking a cutoff that dead endsÖit may dead end on a mountain top, but it dead ends just the same. My personal preference is toward variety, trying several approaches in a lifetime. For me itís a great opportunity to live in an age of extended life expectancy. I can see my life as separate attempts, my youth and young adulthood, middle years and now my later years with clear beginnings and ends.
