Thinking Without Thinking

“When moments without stimulation arise, we start to feel panicked and don’t know what to do with them, because we’ve trained ourselves to expect this stimulation — new notifications and alerts and so on.” – Nicholas Carr

All of our extra time is frittered away on mobile phones. There’s a reason you get epiphanies in the shower – you can’t bring your phone in there!

There are other ways of course, but you have to be intentional. For instance, try to test your patience and force introspection by going to the DMV without your phone.

We live in a world of short attention spans. If your post isn’t captivating in the first 2-3 seconds people keep scrolling…

Unless they’re GIFs or Motion Stills, videos will always get less engagement than photos.

Anyway, phones replace contemplation. If you’re never bored you can’t think. Boredom bears the fruit of introspection.
