“The answers you seek never come when the mind is busy. They come when the mind is still, when silence speaks loudest.”

Most of us are familiar with the phrase “Silence is Golden.” Perhaps it is the value expressed in today’s quote that makes it so. It is virtually impossible to explore new ideas and inquire into new levels of thinking when our minds are going a million miles per hour.
Try blocking out five to ten minutes today for quiet reflection and personal inquiry. Consider choosing a topic or question worth pondering closely, and see what you discover.
Also consider making this a daily habit and explore the added value of capturing any insight you will likely have in a journal or notebook.
“The problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you are finished.”

We all need a break from time to time to recharge, refresh, and simply stop the frenetic pace most of us keep.
A potential challenge to this usually well-deserved respite is to know, as today’s quote states, when we are finished.
Instead of an open-ended period of “do nothing,” please consider actually scheduling it in your calendar. When the time period is up, you can determine if it fits your recharging needs or not.
