Think About It
I talk or write about the fact that most people think thinking is hard work so
they don’t do it I wonder how many folks are turned off?
can hear’em, “That Collins guy is such a jerk!”
me, I’ve been called worse…much worse…by people who are bigger, meaner, richer,
smarter and more intimidating than the people who might yap at and about me.
the only way you can get where you want to go in life is by thinking. Recently,
speaker and author Brian Tracy talked about two types of thinking: Type 1 and
1 thinking is what we do almost all day, every day. Type 1 thinking is fast and jumps around to
many different topics.
2 thinking is much slower, deeper and more focused. Type 2 thinking is what we
have to do when we are planning and making important life decisions. Setting
aside some time each day for Type 2 thinking is a key to a successful day and
friend from long ago taught me that if you spend about 20 minutes at the
beginning of each day doing some Type 2 thinking you accomplish much more than
you might have and it’s easier to stay focused on important tasks.
