Our minds searching. Searching for what? Who knows. Immediate pleasure? Something now? Something fast? Any shallow reward? We get a hit. Pause for two seconds, then move on. Restless, we scan and scroll.
This is worse than inaction. This is destruction. Destroying time that could have been used for creative endeavors.
Our minds were not made for these times. Or rather, the modern world was not made for our minds.
But we can stop. We can remove the clutter. We can make the choice to dig deep. No more scanning. No more scrolling. Just learning and creating. Creating and learning.
