Big chunks of time when all you’re doing is thinking


According to Ross Posnock about this

In conversation in London with the British Conservative leader David Cameron this past summer, Barack Obama lamented the frantic over-scheduling that encourages micromanagement and with it the temptation to try and “solve everything and end up being a dilettante.” Instead, he concluded, “the most important thing you need to do is to have big chunks of time during the day when all you’re doing is thinking.”
