Concentration/Attention

Every year dozens of articles are printed on the topics of listening, reading, and studying that give very good advice that is nearly impossible to follow. The advice tells you to make yourself pay attention—concentrate, avoid being distracted, and focus on main ideas.

This type of advice is given to students and business people all the time. What these people are really being asked to do is to “pay attention to their attention,” a skill that very few people have completely mastered. Meditation is about paying attention to your attention, and anybody that has tried to meditate can tell you how truly difficult that can be. Being aware of whether or not you are concentrating is even harder.
