I personally feel like this is just an untouched subject so I’m super excited to discuss it with you!
When you’re working, either at home, University or in the office, how often do you just sit and think? I mean literally do nothing and just think?
Probably not enough, if at all is my guess. Especially when you’re in an office. There seems to be an unusual impression that if you look busy, then you are. This isn’t always the case. It is so important to sit down and just think about what you’re doing, what you need to do, the best way to approach something. Literally everything you do, especially in your career should be well considered and how will you do that without really thinking?
Although a lot of people will believe they don’t have time to just sit and think, it actually saves you time in the long run. I’ve seen it so many times where companies (or individuals) have so much work on that they go into everything full steam ahead and never stop to think about how they will approach the task first. This can often cause a lot of problems and going around in circles. 99% of the time it is better to stop, think and plan before starting any new project.
Don’t be afraid to stop and think. Just becasue you don’t look busy, doesn’t mean you aren’t. Thoughts are valuable and should be given more time.
