“Paying attention in a distracted world: It’s like bringing a gun to a knife fight.”
– James Shelley
N I C E . WHAT A QUOTE!!!
Terrible quote. 2nd half is about being unprepared. This once again proves that abstract quotes that sound profound usually have no basis in reality.
i think his point is that a gun will be more effictivet tool to use in such a setting, even if it means you’re the odd one out. It’s about being different, standing out. Knocking the competition dead (pun intended).
@harry: maybe you read it wrong. usually it would be, “it’s like bringing a knife to a gun fight” which would mean yes, being unprepapred. but he’s changed the gun and knife so like sara said, it’s being over-prepared in a good way.
Being prepared with effective tools to pay attention in a busy world. Still makes no sense…
Paying attentions gives you a considerable advantage over people who don’t. Makes sense to me.
I’m so late, but this quote reminded me of my favorite scene from Indiana Jones.
