So where does long-term prosperity come from? From innovation.
And where does innovation come from? From ideas.
And where do ideas come from? From thinking.
But with everybody so busy these days, who has time for thinking?
Y’know, the kind of thinking that allows you to do what Dr. Cal Newport calls “Deep Work”.
In a world where most people spend their days rushing around, to have the time and space to actually think properly, at a deep enough level to where you’re actually solving real problems; is for real people, one of the great privileges of the western world.
If you can create that for yourself, Bravo. Better yet, if you can create that for other people, you have something very powerful to work with. Congratulations. Now go conquer the world. Rock on!
