I wish I had more time to think. You know, just sit and think. Reflect on the events of the day. Examine the details of my latest great idea and figure out how to make it work. Contemplate what I would be doing right now if I had married Ricky Mergner after we kissed during a "spin the bottle game" in Panama in 1972. Ponder the pros and cons of accepting the offer to be on the next season of the amazing race. You get the idea. Sitting. Thinking. A key component to optimal thinking is the right environment.
I have conducted some experimental thinking sessions at the Roasterie Cafe in Brookside. I am currently having a 73.6% success rate at achieving what I meditate on while I am there. I can therefore recommend it as a good place to sit and think. The capuccino and frosted cookie with sprinkles on top have nothing to do with this endorsement.
