I’m a very slow thinker

Derek Sivers will get back to you tomorrow.

“When someone asks me a deep question, I say, “Hmm. I don’t know.” The next morning, I have an answer.” I like this from Derek Sivers, and have been thinking – slowly – about this over the holiday period.

Derek’s arguing our that first reactions are based on outdated knowledge and biases and are thus unhelpful. If, however, we take a step back and think more deliberately, we’ll have a better answer. I don’t agree that an intuitive reaction is always unhelpful, but have been taking the point to heart so far this year: think harder.
