Paying attention to the minute details of your daily life

By | November 23, 2018

Are you paying attention to attend the minute details of your life?

Eyes help us to see this beautiful world around us. But do we really observe whatever we see?

No.. Actually we have a programmed observation. We see the landmarks, but rarely an underlying small stone. Society has a habit of stepping in and telling us what’s ‘significant’ which make us notice the ‘landmarks’. But having an eye on the minute details is never easy; it requires constant practice and alertness.

[By the way if you are observing a pretty woman, don’t stare too much without ensuring a social grace of giving space. Or else simply wait for the consequences.]

Sometimes, our routine causes ignorance. Things get unnoticed when they are part of our routine. Do you remember if there are markings on your watch or is it a plain one? Is it a roman numbered or some dots..? [Are you there or left to check your watch?…]

Sometimes we take these fine points for granted and overlook their whole purpose.

These minute details help you connect things. So don’t just limit yourself to observations, but analyse it further. We cannot control our environment. But the closer we observe it, the more patterns and connections it reveals.

Have you ever wondered on your intuitions coming true..? It’s actually your mind game. If you are a keen observer of minute details, your subconscious mind collects all these details, sequence them properly and make logical guts for you. You call it as your intuition. But there might be a strong reasoning going on in your mind before you get that intuition.

Have that curiosity of a child while paying attention to your senses. And at the same time complement it with an eagle eye too for a bigger picture. Escape from a cluttered life. Get organized [ read more here about Life under Configuration Control] and prioritise your tasks

The more conscious you are to observe the minute details, the faster you’ll reach the level of responsiveness you want in a broader perspective as it evokes your brain cells.

So stop being absent minded, let today be the day you begin to focus on those minute details and thus free yourself from the pressure of wanting to be noticed.

“Women observe subconsciously a thousand little details, without knowing they are doing so. Their subconscious mind adds these little things together – and they call the result intuition.”

— Agatha Christie

      Thanks Dhiraj,
      Subconsciously may be we all are doing this, observing the little details. but the thing is most of the times, fail to sequence it and connect with experiences.

    Women observes everything and they can use it by retrieving it from ages and use it against us

          But trust me, that’s not a women only behaviour.. it’s a common man thing.. the intuitions breaks when people are not able to connect those things

            But there is a upper hand for women on all matters.. the way they put it together to validate their arguments is commendable.. so no point in arguing..always Women wins ☺️

    True words spoken on being attentive every minute and women are generally more observant than men, Akhila. Great to see your blog again. I was not getting any notifications and was wondering if you stopped writing. Great and apt picture too.

      Thanks kamal…regarding the notification problem, when I had a chat with WP team, they told like “if you are following more than 2k blogs, no further notification might appear for future blogs”.. So that could be a probable reason for missing your readers posts..

    went to a new place
    in an old space
    saw a bare beam
    and the mouse trap
    and thought
    better wash me hands!

    ohh I loved that quote. It’s funny actually. I am very absent-minded and yet I have a surprisingly good intuition. Wonder how that came about! There’s so much we don’t notice. Kann ondenkilum vendathu pole kaanararillathe pole. Good one, dear. Kurach naal Oru valya break ondayirunnallo. Good to see you back!

    I tried paying attention to all the minutest details of my life, just for one day and lo and behold, I turned into a newspaper…! When waiting at a traffic light, should I pay attention to the pattern on the windshield by the falling rain… or watch the lights and the traffic? 🙂

    I realise how we are becoming. Sometimes I cross the same place everyday and do not even notice something new that is there, and suddenly one fine day it’s there, and I am like when did this happen? it is only then that I realise how much unobservant I have become.

      So true and you said the right example.. i too have experienced this many a times.. so trying to be mindful nowadays without stressing myself.. “after all if one stresses to be mindful, you cannot be”

    Well illustrates the point that precision is a vital part of creativity. And childlike curiosity is a way to avoid deadening adult conformity. Nice post …

      Thanks dave.. You are absolutely right on that child curiosity part..Their questioning attitude is actually getting diluted while getting older
