It is easy to get so involved in our activities and tasks, that we stop taking time to just sit and think. Taking the time to think and plan for the future is rarely urgent, so it often gets bumped by all the little emergencies of daily life.
But taking the time to think is vitally important for your productivity. Thinking can lead to more efficiency. Thinking can lead to new ideas. Thinking can help make sure you are focused on the things that are really important to you.
If you aren’t taking the time to sit and think, I can guarantee that you are not reaching your full potential. Your ability to improve is going to be tied to your ability to be creative and creativity demands your attention and thought.
