In business, the term Return on Investment (ROI) is often invoked when trying to learn the value of a particular product or service. The goal of any investment is to have a tangible return. The larger and more substantial the return, the more justified is the investment.
I have learned about another type of ROI that might even have an even greater return. Return on Ignoring. Not paying attention to particular people and things can offer a tremendous and often unexpected return.
Pushing this idea a bit further, I have found that ignoring some things is an essential element to achieving peace of mind.
Psychologists say increased awareness often leads to increased stress. This makes sense. What I don’t know. because I don’t know about it, won’t be able to bother me.
So today I will look to develop some ROI and ignore some things.
