Time to Think

On Christmas, a friend shared with me William Deresiewicz’s “Solitude and Leadership” a speech he had given at West Point.

It’s only by concentrating, sticking to the question, being patient, letting all the parts of my mind come into play, that I arrive at an original idea. By giving my brain a chance to make associations, draw connections, take me by surprise.

Many ideas within his words resonated with me as I had struggled to articulate his main ideas. As a 27 year old, soon to be MBA graduate from an “elite” institution, I have had very little time to actually think for myself; to develop my own thoughts and voice. This sums up my desire to create this space for myself. This space is selfishly for me to write down my thoughts and reactions to things I read, see and hear. It will be by no means perfect. What it will be is a chance for me to start thinking about the things I care about.
