Thinking Time – Think First Then Act – How to Work Smarter, Not Harder?

Today is the most essential day of your life

And thinking time is the most essential time of your day.

Thinking Time - Think First Then Act - How to Work Smarter, Not Harder?That’s why I want to share my thinking time questions with you. Every morning I keep finding (new) answers for them.

  1. What would I do today if I died tomorrow?
  2. What would I learn today if I lived forever?
  3. How can I love myself and the world better?
  4. Which action will I take today to make progress towards my major goals?
  5. Which of my dreams can I make even bigger? And which is the next little step will I initiate today in its direction?

This is actually a priming exercise, which serves you with new answers to the same questions, almost every day. It gets you out of the dilemma of having only two choices: Yes and no, black or white, move on or stop. By the end of the week, you can choose which answer serves you the best.

What is Thinking Time?

As Keith Cunningham describes it in his book Thinking Time, it is a daily routine to sit down in a quiet environment and think about one question. In his case, about one of his businesses. And he comes up with some pretty good ones. The name thinking time implies that it means logical thinking. But all of our thoughts are triggered by emotions. So in fact, it is a highly emotional process! Without emotions, we are unable to handle any problem. Even worse, as long as we are thinking, we cannot make any decisions at all. Because we are not thinking-machines, but feeling-machines instead!

Now, what happens during this time?

He listens to his inner voice. And this is, being in the here and now. As long as one is thinking, one’s mind is in the future or in the past. But if you open up to your emotions, you take life seriously, by being in and experience the current moment.

The concept of taking life seriously is widely misunderstood. Many people keep running around with a severe face, neither making eye contact nor smiling. That does NOT mean, you are taking life seriously. But instead, it is playing the Russian game! This has only one rule: Who smiles first, loses the game!

Taking life seriously means living in the here and now. And that can be pretty pleasant. Because you can smile and flirt with anyone, and the other people reflect your energy. So, you get back multiple times the good vibes, you are sending out.

So ultimately, what is the difference between thinking time, meditation, and praying? The aim to do any of those disciplines is: To listen to your inner voice, to your emotions, your intuition: Ultimately, thinking, meditating, and praying are all the same discipline:

Thinking time means: Listening to your inner voice!
