Do You Think?
Strange question, yes. And worth repeating.
Do you think?
I’ll give you a minute to think about that question. (take your time, it’ll only take you 1 minute to read today’s short post. I’m doing it on purpose, so you have time to think).
(Long, pregnant pause while you think about how much you think)
(Keep thinking, it can take some practice if you haven’t done it for a while)
Think About It
It’s important to think. Just as exercise for our body is good, exercise for the mind is something we should intentionally pursue. As we age, and move out of the workplace (forced thinking?), it’s important to find something new to think about. I think. A lot.
Perhaps too much.
After 53 years, I’ve learned to live with my active mind, and have decided to embrace this personality quirk of mine. I think it’s a blessing to have a mind that likes to think. Perhaps, I just think about it too much.
How do you exercise your mind?
Today’s post will be different than most. I’m know for my “full length” content, and love to really dig into topics that interest me. It works for me, and it seems to appeal to you (my readership is growing, to which I extend sincere gratitude to each of you, my readers).
Today, I’m trying something new.
Oh yes, I had a lengthy “draft” post here for several weeks, filled with lots of notes about what I was going to include in this post about “thinking”. I just deleted 6 paragraphs of notes (don’t panic, I actually cut/pasted the thoughts into another draft….if you like this post, let me know and I’ll resurrect the notes into a lengthy post, I’ve already saved a new draft titled “My Thoughts On Thinking”).
I’m keeping this short today. On purpose. Because I’ve been thinking about it.
“Mix it up”, me thinks.
“Learn how to make an infographic“, me thinks.
“Never stop challenging yourself“, me thinks.
“Write a short post, as a challenge”, me thinks.
Writing Forces Me To Think
I started this blog on April 12, 2015, because I thought I would enjoy writing. After 1 1/2 years, I thought I did, in fact, love writing.
But after thinking about it for today’s post, I realized what I really love is THINKING.
Writing forces you to think. THAT’s why I love writing. It’s not the writing I love, it’s the thinking. And writing forces me to THINK.
Find Something That Makes You Think
Regardless of which stage you’re at in life, find something to make you think.
A Short Post, With A Short Conclusion
There you have it. A new approach today. A record short post, at only 493 words!
Just giving you something to think about….
PS – Leave your thoughts – if you’d like a longer post with “My Thoughts On Thinking”, let me know. I’ve already got 6 paragraphs of thoughts on the topic, safe in a draft. Ready to ponder on, just say the word….
