Lesson 2: Paying Attention To Details.

In this time where everything is on the fast lane; fast food, microwave cooking and, if you are a student like me,you would probably also rush for classes, its very easy to pay little or no attention to details. 
Details are the core or connecting dots in attaining true or in-dept understanding.They are those tiny information that are easily waved off or shoved off. 

Paying attention to details helps us to do things thoroughly and thus get the very best of it. Most people do not like paying attention to details and some unknowingly don't because they claim there's no time or are not ready to 'slow down'. Paying attention requires time and patience. 

The thing is, the things you take quality time to do usually pays off on the long run.Whatever you get the 'true feel' of sticks with you longer. It comes in 2 forms:

  • REFLECTION - ruminating on your past experiences and making sense out of them for your growth or future life before taking up something new.
  • PARTICIPATION - been consciously present where you are and maximizing the moment. Giving your best contribution or getting the best (information) of every moment. It is intentionally focusing on where you are and what you are doing per time.

 With this, you do not waste any moment of your life because you will end up making sense of it all. That is full consciousness per time.


Even the Bible says; if you sow sparingly, you will reap sparingly and if you sow bountifully,you will reap bountifully.

What are the areas you may need to pay attention to?

1) Yourself- Next to paying attention to knowing God is knowing yourself. There are SO MANY things about you that you take for granted but are the key to your distinction in life. Take note of the little details about you.Own those details, especially the ones that make you different, because you were really made to stand out. Its the key to any form of influence. 

2)  Our relationships- Always be conscious of what is going on in every of your relationships. Be careful that your iPad, tabs, smart phones etc. don't take your attention while speaking to people. Especially in your most important relationships, make sure you are listening and observing properly so you can be sure to connect the dots. Also take time out to allow your past experience with the person or your other relationships channel you to the best way or 'how' to relate properly to the person. Make sure you take out time for them. Relationship with God, family and friends are key!

3) Purpose or your assignment- Its so easy to get distracted or carried away by every other thing but what you are called to or responsible to doing (lazy in the place of purpose). You may find yourself doing everything but what you have really purposed to do per time.

4)Others- Pay attention to the detail of time, the particular words you say and use, the promises you give, to whom you speak, what exactly you eat, how you study/read, how you plan etc.
It is key to excellence/distinction.

So you read it all and you are like 'where do I even start from?'
Hehe..Here's your answer:
  • Just decide right now to begin paying attention to details/concentrate.
  • Anytime you loose concentration, try to regain it. You get steady with time. Remember this: "whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously" - 2Corinthians 9:6  (from the Bible).

FOCUS N or P

I’m sure you are wondering by now, what does focus N or P mean?
Yeah,its worth the think. I’m sure you are familiar with the way a camera works, at least to some extent. The android phone/iPhone users can own this complement. You’ld often realize that some pictures don’t come out ‘fine’ or clear because whoever was behind the phone did not focus it right. Having seen the picture, you be like ‘omg this picture is blurry’. How many have friends who take blurry pictures (winks.)- this is by the way.(I do that sometimes). Youl’d realize that one or two taps on your android phone makes the image much clearer.
For my photographer folks, a gentle turn of that Nickon D3300’s focus ring  and or zoom ring would give a perfect picture. 
Just like a camera can produce both positive and negative images, so also our minds, based on our focus.

In Numbers 13:30-31, Caleb and Joshua happen to bring back a good report as compared to the report of the other representatives that were told to go spy the…

FOOD…..GOOD FOOD

:) I’ve not written in about a month now because I needed to focus on some other things.
Lately, my attention has been drawn to food. I mean, gooooooood food. The kind of food whose appearance gives some Jesus Joy. You know what I mean? Sighting them a lot makes one absolutely crave for them. While some of them take only a little while to get prepared, some of them take quite some time. However, if you ever take your time to prepare them, you’d be so glad you did. These are the kind of food that cost quite some amount (to pay for) in a good restaurant.
