Thinking about thinking, and then recommending some thinking-related books.
I will be the first to buy this book!! Go, go, go!!
Thank you so much for this post. It's going to feed my reading pile for a little while.
I have ADHD and I find that I can do my best thinking when my body is occupied by doing something where I'm mostly using muscle memory or that doesn't require a strong sense of focus - swimming or coloring or walking, for example.
I also think through writing, especially when I write by hand. Half formed ideas solidify in the act of writing, I think.
Absolutely love the book proposal, and I cannot think of anyone better to tackle the topic
The question for me is - when am I NOT thinking. My brain doesn’t stop. In the shower, driving, eating I’m usually pondering something. This is what eventually gave me the power to start writing - I already write a ton in my head! Full on theories or arguments about a topic I’m interested in. The only time I escape the thought machine is listening to music at the gym or with assistance from substances (not a recommended method).
Please do write this book, John!
I can't wait to see how this book turns out! I'm already waiting in line with my digital tent!
