Nuggets in Nutshells

You don’t know until you do

The more awareness you can bring to bear on any action, the more feedback you get from the experience, and the more naturally you learn what works best. There is no substitute for learning from experience. You don’t know until you do.

Attention as generosity

Simone Veil wrote: "“Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.”

Your habits build your life

Your habits are the building blocks of your life. It may take years for the value of good habits and the cost of bad ones to become clear. So pay attention to them sooner rather than later

What, Why, How and Who

WHAT you do matters.
WHY you do it may matter more. WHY is about your motivation. Your purpose. It's WHY that makes an activity feel meaningful.
The way you do it - the HOW - probably matters even more.
Because HOW you do things permeates every instant and every action and ultimately builds WHO you are - the way you habitually show up in the world, whatever you do.
Whether or not you know WHAT and/or WHY, pay attention to your HOW.
