No Time to Think

I’ve long argued that one of the fundamental problems with the modern business world is the lack of time (or even encouragement) to really think deeply. The problem is that thinking doesn’t look like working. And yet it could well be the most important thing we do in a day, but modern work is shaped around meetings and sitting in front of computers, etc.

I liked this spin of this article – it’s worth the read.

A great line from one of my all-time favourite books.((Towles, Amor. A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel. Penguin, 2019.)) I cannot recommend it highly enough. Especially right now, if you’d like to get a nice broad view of Russian history.
