This morning, I was reminded, as I read Greg Mckeown, that we need to have designated times and spaces to think. Technology has made it so that we are never bored and never truly focused on the art of thinking. We will stream something (TV or a podcast), open a social media app or we will call someone.
He brings up an amazing point: some of our most inspiring literature and the thoughts that have withstood the test of time were born in solitude, in focus, in hard and deep thinking.
So whether it’s developing thoughts that endure time or just designing our lives– we need to schedule time to just think, distraction free.
Think about it… how can you disconnect? Where can you sit? How many minutes can you carve out? Why is this important to you?
Schedule time to think, today.
