No One Owes You Their Attention

Most of us have a problem keeping our own attention.

In fact, chances are good that even at this very second you are losing interest in what I am about to say. Right?

The main fact about attention you need to know is that it is so important that most folks think other humans somehow automatically OWE them all the attention they can muster! (similar to the way babies demand attention)

ALL of it!

Thankfully, that’s not how attention does or should work.

Attention is important and only you own yours.

Be careful where you aim that mother…

Thank you, friend.

Barry out.

The dudes from Midnight Oil know about attention. Put yours where theirs is for a minute.

Beds Are Burning

Out where the river broke
The blood wood and the desert oak
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
Steam in forty five degrees

The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
Let’s give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning
How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning

The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent, now
To pay our share

Four wheels scare the cockatoos
From Kintore East to Yuendemu
The western desert lives and breathes
In forty five degrees

The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share
The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
Let’s give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning
How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning

The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent, now
To pay our share
The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
We’re gonna give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning
