This book traces the theory of attention, including effortless attention and action, which help an individual to achieve more with little effort. The stage at which attention and action become efforts results in increased efficiency without any detrimental effect on the individual’s performance or productivity. The book reveals that such effortless attention and action are observed across a wide range of activities, extending from rock climbing to personal conversation. Research in this field needs to concentrate on examining and testing the existing models and theories on attention and action, improving respective contributions into making attention and action more effortless.

Keywords:   attention, action, effortless attention, personal conversation
