Taking the Time to Think

In Philosophy, Self Improvement, Short Thoughts, Stoicism

Lately I’ve been spending a huge amount of time thinking, reading, and writing, and I haven’t done much else for several weeks.

While, of course, this is a luxury, it is also a very good thing to do to ensure that you review what you’re doing, how you are doing it, and if it has any value at all.

Default behaviour is extremely dangerous, because it lacks thought, and we run the risk of going through life in autopilot mode, and only realizing towards the end how badly we have lived.

A few days or week of pause once a year to reflect, are a good swap in return for a lifetime of living a good life.
