too busy to ponder?

2014 Sprin Flowers at Brown GablesGood morning! It’s finally getting Spring here in NE Indiana!! Flowers starting to bloom and a mallard walking around in the yard.

Question for you – how much time do you actually spend thinking about the important things? I mean actually thinking, reflecting, meditating, or pondering on the important issues in your life and in life in general?

I am inclined to thinking because of my personality. However, I am also a collector of information and the Internet is like a treasure chest to me! I can collect a vast amount of information. However, I have noticed that when I begin indulging my desire to collect information, I neglect thinking. I forget to consider the “why” behind things. I forget to think about how things connect.

I may have more information now, but I am less wise.

So, I have some questions that might warrant pondering:

1. Do you know what you really believe? Not what are the opinions of others that you might have adopted, but what do you really believe?

2. Do you know why you believe what you do?

3. If so, can you articulate well what you believe and why you believe it?

If you can answer question number 3 – “yes” and “yes”, then you will begin to have a profound impact on others.

If you can’t, you might want to spend some time pondering.

Have a great week!
