If you’ve paid special attention to this daily blog, you might know that I wrote two posts about attention in my first year of blogging (Day 31: The Effect of Attention and Day 319: Paying attention) and one additional post about attention a year ago.
Why am I writing about special attention today?
That “SPECIAL ATTENTION” tag is from a dry cleaner, informing me that they gave special attention to a stain on a silk skirt but were unable to remove it. When I picked up the skirt yesterday, I said to them, “Thanks for giving this special attention. We all need special attention sometimes.”
When you pay special attention to that last sentence, do you agree that we all need special attention sometimes? When do you need special attention? How do you get that special attention when you need it? Do you ask for it? Or do you hope that special people will know that you need it without your asking?
I’ve been giving special attention to my second letter from the President for my professional organization’s newsletter. I’ve been working on that special letter for days and no matter how much special attention I give it, I don’t like what I’m writing. Maybe I’m giving it too much special attention.
When I have special trouble writing or completing other special tasks, I especially take breaks and turn my attention elsewhere. Which of my latest photos deserve your special attention?
I’ll be paying special attention to a podcast about coronary heart disease because it’s my first appearance on a podcast! Firsts are always special. I don’t have coronary heart disease but I did ask some questions about my special heart condition.
I hope you know I’ll be giving special attention to your comments for this “special attention” post.
Special thanks to all who helped me create today’s special post and — OF COURSE! — YOU.
