Please pay attention to the red bouncy ball.

                        Please pay attention to the red bouncy ball.
Do you remember this?  I believe they showed the red bouncy ball at the beginning of a movie in the theaters of the 70s and 80s.  This was well before the movie previews show business marketers prepare for you now.

The attention span of a human they say can be as little as 8 seconds and as long as 5 minutes.

Now think about that for all of you in these meetings that go hours and hours or these movies that do the same.

There is no quick answer to making things any better and maybe that red bouncy ball did help make me pay attention more or just remember that I wasn’t.
