Ponder this interview from News.com:
Read the whole thing (and this post from 43 Folders that pointed me to it), but here's the quote that inspired the heading for this post:
Organizations are sacrificing their most valuable asset, namely the imagination and creativity of the brains they employ, by allowing ADT [attention deficit trait] to infest the organization. It's not that hard to deal with, once you identify it. You need to set limits and preserve time to think. Warren Buffett sits in a little office in the middle of nowhere and spends a lot of his time just thinking. And we are not giving ourselves that opportunity.
Even someone as scatterbrained and distracted as me can notice a trend here.
Join me, won't you, in committing to more sitting and thinking, and less of the ADT behavior that plagues so many knowledge workers today. Knowledge loses value when we do not spare the time to digest it.
