Thought Boxes

Leo, which is a friend of mine; made a peculiar observation about me, he said that I don’t think inside the box, and I don’t think outside the box; I invent new boxes and think within them. His analogy gave me the perfect conceptual thinking to describe… thoughts. I’ve often discussed organizing ones life by having a clear file structure, planned life via a digital calendar and of course a well organized task management system. But none of these systems work unless you have a mind set that allows you to use them efficiently. Thought Boxes is a description of a thought system which many of us probably relate to, it’s simply the natural way we handle thoughts (I think?). I wonder thought, are there people who handle thoughts in a very...

Organizing your thoughts

I’m sure we all feel like the thoughts are just spinning around and around from time to time. This is common in stressful situations or when you just have lot’s on your mind in general.

I deem my self to be a fairly intelligent person, I’m good at solving problems and finding patterns in whatever I work with, my memory on the...
