Looking at the Tzitzis during the Blessing: 
It is proper to look at the Tzitzis upon one wrapping it over him, while saying the blessing. [According to Kabala, one is to look at the Tzitzis of the Tallis Gadol also after the Tallis has been positioned to rest over the shoulders.]
Looking at the Tzitzis during other times:
One is to constantly look at his Tzitzis throughout the day. Doing so is a great source of assistance to the soul to prevent it from sin. There is a tradition amongst meticulous Jews that even when they were sitting idle they would constantly touch the Tzitzis and look at them. See Chapter 1 Halacha 3!
 24/5; Michaber 24/3
 The reason: As the verse states “Ureisem Osos Uzechartem”, which implies that looking at them brings one to remember [the Mitzvos], and remembering [the Mitzvos] brings one to fulfill them. [Admur ibid; Levush 24]
