Today’s Daily Prompt is: “When and where do you do your best thinking? In the bathroom? While running? Just before bed, or first thing in the morning? On the bus? Why do you think that is?”
I don’t know that I really have a “best place to think.” A lot of the time it’s when driving, on familiar routes, because I am doing something mindlessly repetitive and soothing, and I can let my mind wander. Or sometimes, yes, just before bed, or more accurately, just before sleep. I think again it’s because I can just sort of let go of the immediate and let thoughts go free. Rarely is it when I’m under pressure to think; that is often a problem for me as I get so nervous when I’m ‘on the spot.’
Today’s Daily Prompt is “Is it possible to be too honest, or is honesty always the best policy?”
I think people often forget that there is a useful difference between honesty and openness. To me one should always be honest, even if one isn’t necessarily particularly open. While you always have to, or ought to, tell the truth, I don’t know that outside a court you have to tell all the truth. Even in a court, you only have to answer questions put to you, you don’t have to, and it’s generally a bad idea to, volunteer information. Personally while I don’t mind being honest, I would like to try being a little less open. I’m sure people aren’t interested in my every thought.
And happy Friday. And happy five inches of snow and a broke procedure to let us know of schedule changes.
Okay so yesterday’s Daily Prompt was: “When you look back at your [self] on January 2, 2015, what would you like to see?”
I think I’d like to see a huge change in my physical appearance (the reason why will become apparent later!), and more confidence and polish. I’d also like to see a person better able, or prone, to finish what he starts and to follow through and persevere.
