“The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.”Albert Einstein
When I’m looking for answers to problems, I usually seek out a book or find someone who’s had a similar experience. But that’s not always the way to go. More input isn’t necessarily beneficial.
Sometimes all we need is to sit alone in a room with ourselves, or out in the woods to find the answer we need.
As Thomas Edison once said, “The best thinking has been done in solitude. The worst has been done in turmoil.”
We might already have the answer we are looking for, we just can’t see it because we are too caught up in issue and the day to day business life.
Go talk a walk outside without your phone.
Sit in a silent room with some paper and a pen.
Find a quiet place to gather your thoughts and intentionally think and feel things through.
And it’s not just problems that solitude can cure. Some of my best ideas came from sitting alone in a room—reading, writing, thinking through my experiences.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
