How long is your to-do list? How much busy work is on it? Where’s your real work? A list of tasks is just that, a list of tasks. We all have tasks, we all need to do them to get stuff done.
But what is the list of tasks that gets our thinking done? Our dreaming done? That real work in our heads that leads to the ideas of what we want to get done?
When you need to get your thinking done put away your list. Put away distractions. Walk away from your computer and the people around you. Go for a walk by yourself. See the world. Hear the world. Then let go. Let your mind go. Get your thinking done.
