Let's begin.

1) Attention bus passengers

🚌 I've been toying with this analogy so decided to write it out and test it further. 

Imagine your consciousness is a bus and you, or more specifically, your attention is the driver.

Every single thought you have is a passenger that gets on the bus and sits at the very front, next to you. With each new thought, a new passenger gets on which bumps the old passenger one seat backward. As the driver, your attention is still near the older passengers but as they're forced farther and farther back, they fall out of sight and mind. 

As you'd imagine, not all the passengers can fit inside the bus (consciousness), and the ones at the back eventually fall out entirely.

So much of productivity is about continuously bringing your life's top priority to the front of the bus and eliminating as many other passengers (thoughts/distractions) as possible.

So much of attitude and perspective is about who and what you let on the bus. 

It's not easy to manage attention, it's estimated we generate a new thought 12,000 - 60,000 times per day. But it is still possible.

Who you allow on the bus and who you keep at the front is completely within your control. It's a skill that can be practiced and improved upon. 

2) A quote

💭 “A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson


3) Apollo 17 to now

🌑 Today marks the 49th anniversary of Apollo 17 which was the final time humans stepped foot on the moon. 

🌕 Next year, on Apollo 17's 50th anniversary, Elon's SpaceX might just be successful in test-launching their massive rocket, appropriately named Starship, which will be the vehicle used to transport people to Mars.

4) Saturns weight
