Today is such a quiet day. I have a lot to do and too much to think about. Thinking is a kind of doing, but thinking is not a substitute for doing. You have to think first and act next, unless you have trained yourself for your thinking to be so impeccably formulaic that your action does not have to be preceded by too much thinking. I am not so trained and must struggle to think, then act, then think again.
Thinking in itself becomes action when we communicate that thinking; that is how we exploit ideas. We cannot survive as a species unless we exploit our ideas for our own benefit and for the benefit of the species and then for the benefit of the planet upon which we live. our ideas are important, which is why we must think and have quiet days for thinking.
