Paying Attention for long periods of time

Added on by Chris Saad.
There is an interesting post over at Thought Signals about trying to reverse the short burst fickle attention span of the blog generation.

Touchstone might be useful when you're trying to 'feed the beast' - but it might also be useful to step away from the PC and read a book for an hour a day!

From the article...

If it’s harder to do those things, do them more. In other words, instead of reading so many blogs, read more books. Instead of writing short items for a blog, write longer items, or write books. Set aside half an hour a day to read a book — you know you should be doing it anyway. I’ve got a long list of books I’d like to read, so finding things to meet this requirement shouldn’t be hard. This also can come into play with relationships: Add some long, lazy conversations every once in a while to the short-and-shallow interactions that dominate most relationships.
