Thinking has never served me well.
I think I have thought enough.
What do you think?
Me either, Bill. With 72 coming up, too much time on my hands and lots of reflection going on, I've concluded that some of the problems in my life happened because I didn't fully think things through. Lol.

I’m reminded of the old man who visited the Urologist.

“Doctor…I’m having a hard time peeing.”

“So how old are you?”

“I’m eighty years old.”

“Don’t you think you have peed enough?”

o_O

Guess what I’m trying to say Bill is that I think that we’re not done thinking until we’re done.

I gave up thinking for a living when I retired. I actually miss the intellectual stimulation. I don’t miss working but I maintain my journal and newsletter subscriptions. I also stay in touch with former colleagues. It’s not that there’s no intellectual stimulation here, there is. But I miss the handful of people who actually knew what I was talking about.

Do I think I should give up thinking? Let me think about that. GAAAA! Caught in a recursive loop! Black hole! Darkness! I don't think I can get out! AAAH! There I go again! ...

I spend too much time thinking and not enough time doing.

At 45 the time to "do" is getting less infinite.

All the time I've spent thinking and planning in the past has shown little actual progress as my plans always forget to take into account that no one else gives a damn about my thoughts/plans and things rarely play out like I thought they would.
