We "do" a lot these days. We rush from one activity to another. Yet we don't often slow down enough to think. Life has become so hectic that we can't focus on one thing for very long without being interrupted by email, cell phones, doorbells.
I've been trying to do some personal work focusing on goals and what I want to be when I grow up. It is almost impossible to get 30 mins of quiet time to just think. I no longer wonder why people have breakthroughs on vacation of after a walk in a snowstorm...they are some of the few times when an individual just gets time to run ideas through their head.
Wait a minute. It's suddenly eerily quiet. The kids are in bed (well supposedly...likely have flashlights under the covers reading) and the wife is studying...I'm alone and it is quiet and it's not 3 AM. Gotto go!
