Here are a few questions that we offer to engage you as a learner. Theyare designed to help you notice what you notice in your world. Among all possible information and situations, we only observe a minuscule percentage of whatas happening. As you notice what gets your attention, you can also see your filters.
What issues consistently get your attention? Which ones make you angry? Which ones get you excited?
