Have you ever considered how it is you think? What is the process you go through when contemplating an idea?
Are you one who just sits quietly and mulls over an idea? Do your ideas come in the middle of a busy day? Does something catch your eye and send you down a thought path? Do your best ideas come in the middle of speaking as you are talking the light bulb goes off?
I think I think best when I have a pen and paper in hand. It helps me to sketch out my ideas and stay on task. When I just sit and think I find my mind wondering. I don’t stay on task. Often times my best thinking times come while listening to a speaker. I may not actually be thinking about his main points but it will be enough to stimulate my own thinking.
How do you think?
