Our mind is often too preoccupied with important issues. Many incidences of misplaced smartphones, wallets or keys can be blamed on our excessive attention to big problems. Not being able to find our smartphone can cause us to panic. But after wasting precious time in search for our belongings, we are often pleasantly surprised to find them in unexpected places. Before carrying on with our day, it might be helpful to recognize, after laughing at our own silliness, that behind destiny’s cruel little trick lies an important reminder, one as significant as our vision for the future: paying attention to what is in front of us is a crucial practice in our pursuit of greater endeavors.
