Smell the roses April 6, 2010

Some of the best thinkers throughout history had some of their best thoughts while going for walks, playing cards with friends, little things things that generally would not be considered the hallmarks of busy people. It’s the ability to pause, to reflect, and relax, to let the mind wander, that’s perhaps the true sign of time mastery, for when the mind returns it’s often sharper and more efficient, but most important perhaps, happier than it was before.

– Scott Berkun on “The Cult of Busy”.

Just read an excellent passage on time managment and the appearance of being busy: In praise of nothingness. Worth a read 🙂
