No Time To Think

I have yet to hear someone coin a phrase for the classic pose that is today’s smart phone user–hunched forward, looking down, thumbs furiously typing away. It seems we have the need to fill every moment with activity. We can’t sit still. Is this bad? No necessarily . . . if you are a factory worker. If you are a member of the creative class, you need time to think. Time to allow ideas to flow in and out of your mind with the distractions of your day to day tasks. I schedule “white space” into my day for ideation. It’s only 30 minutes, but man is it productive–and not in the classic sense, but in the amount of ideas I can come up with. Try it.
