“Until thought is linked to purpose, there is no intelligent accomplishment.” James Allen
Thoughts are fleeting, they come and go. We think of quite a lot of them through out the course of the day. But is there intelligence behind them? Thoughts like; What am I going to eat for dinner, I need to bring my jacket to the cleaners or any of these kind of thoughts are not true thinking. They are just memorized behavioral patterns. To think clearly is like lifting weights. At first you begin with solving puzzles or maybe creating something small but new, then you can go to the next level with heavier weights, and move into a more focused and sustained level of thinking. You become consciously aware of your thoughts and stop reacted to the stimuli around you and respond with a sense of purpose. Thoughts can be likened to currency of energy. Where are you investing your time and energy? If your not thinking clearly, you are losing energy and just like money you will become bankrupt if you spend them on things that are not giving you a good return. So if you desire to think clearly and have more energy, be careful of the thoughts you think. If you want compounded interest, I suggest you invest in a coach to guide you in the right direction. All the rest will fall into place.
