Daily Quote: Thinking is the Hardest Work…

    Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.

    “The person who reads to much and uses his brain too little will fall into lazy habits of thinking” – Albert Einstein

    How much time do you get a week to just think? Not while listening to music, driving your car or during group brainstorms. Not while playing video games, doing chores or taking a shower. Just you and your brain.

    I’d wager that few people ever average more than twenty unbroken minutes of thinking each week. Thinking without simultaneously multi-tasking between seven different things might as well be the eighth deadly sin for most people. It’s important to do things but it’s better to do something important.
