Question ID: 736202
How can I increase my sense of awareness, increase my perception and
train my mind so that it is 'sharper' and able to register what is
happening around me. I work in a high pressure, fast paced
environment, where I need to concentrate and at the same time be aware
as to what is happening around me. eg when on the phone i too often
become so focused on the call that i am oblivious to what is happening
around me (or conversely i become so fixed on doing something that I
fail to hear information relayed to me in the background) it is a
weakness in my job and i am looking for some way to fix it. can anyone

From my own experience, I'd strongly recommend the AvatarŪ
course in personal and spiritual development, which I'm 
licensed to teach. While the full course will produce the
most powerful results, even Part I, which consists of a
workbook of 30 exercises, called ReSurfacing, will teach
you about the concepts of 'fixed' attention, and how to
convert it to 'free' attention.

The result is an increased ability to pay attention to all
that is occurring around and within you.

ReSurfacing workbook:

For a better understanding of the nature of the course, you
can also download the free AvatarŪ Mini-Courses available on
this page from the Star's Edge website:

This might sound odd, but have you considered martial arts training?

I agree with  pinkfreud-ga.  Ive been lucky enough to train with Neil
McLeod at the Mcleod Academy of Martial Arts
( for the past 12 months and have found
that my concentration levels, awareness, coordination and mobility
have improved drastically.
