Author of The Power of Noticing: What the Best Leaders See and Harvard Business School professor, Max Bazerman, discusses how important it is to notice critical information in our environment. It not enough to be able to focus effectively, one should also work on their abilty to notice what's happening.
He uses a story of a personal experience to convey his point. He says "The reason I tell you this story is because I think a lot of our failure to notice happens when we’re busy. It happens when we don’t know exactly what’s happening."
