Stop and smell the roses

If a new song catches my attention, I play it on repeat the entire day. I won’t listen to anything else. That musician has my ears for the day and in my mind I dissect what I hear.

If something pleases you, devote time to appreciate and understand it. Immerse yourself in it. Truly know it.

We’re so anxious to get on to the next thing that we cannot develop more than a superficial understanding of the world around us.

Stop. Smell the roses. Dive deeper.
