So THAT'S The Problem - Thinking!

By Guest Blogger, Mary Schmidt, Marketing Troubleshooter

Homer_simpson This Just In:  The Productivity Killer - Thinking! Via Dawn RIvers Baker - if you don't already read The Journal Blog, you should add to your list.  Dawn writes about micro and small business, including public policy (she actualy goes to D.C. and endures committee hearings. The horror!) She's both fun and educational to read.  (And some of her posts on marketing are - well, dang it - sorta brilliant.)

As Dawn notes about some recent research - Evidently, “12% of the average worker’s time is spent thinking or reflecting” and, judging from the context, that is considered to be a bad thing.

Well, guess that explains why so many of us women don't get to the top of Corporate America.  We're wasting all that time using our brain. ;-)

The sad thing is that throughout our society - and our schools - thinking and intelligent discussion seems to have become downright unpopular.  But, then, I never ran with the popular crowd in school either. 

Happy Friday!  I'm going to do my best to stop thinking now - I've been doing it all week, and it's hard work!  Yet another reason I can never run for political office...I actually enjoy thinking about different perspectives and data.
