We see but do not observe.

Do you ever feel, like your , living in your own bubble and that you give barely a thought to the world outside.

We all get lost in our thoughts sometimes of go through our days on autopilot. However, when we do so, we lose out in the amount and quality of information we absorb, in the potential to be inspired or intrigued, and in our ability to engage with people, places and situation around us.

Fortunately, developing your powers of obsecation isn’t difficult if you know what to do.

Hereis an easy way to practice.

When you’re observant you use your senses to examine something that you’re curious about and you evaluate what you experience.

Observing is not the same thing as seeing. Seeing is passive. For example, you see everything around you as you go to the store, but you rarely look for anything specific or write down information to use later. Observation, however, is a process of paying attention, intently, and actively so that you can gather specific information to assess.
