Nine to five, 24/7, cramming your schedule full of tasks is a sure-fire way to miss out on the one behavior that can add immensely to your quality of life. What could it be?
Not giving yourself time for introspection reduces your ability to live with direction and purpose, and can lead to feeling disconnected and out of control. Happily, there’s an easy fix: just set aside one hour a week to think without noises or distractions, and you’ll find yourself cultivating new thoughts, and as a result, new experiences will start to come into your life.
Steps like writing or typing, exploring a problem fully before you choose how to solve it, and being practical about the steps it will take to achieve your goal are all ways to make thinking a habitual part of your life.
