We’re starting a new “Category” on Out of Bounds today. Joining the categories we already have [ Affirmation, Education, Infiltration, Information, Inspiration, Mental Flexation, Motivation, Quotation, Relaxation, and Versification ] – will be the new category: Rumination. To “ruminate” is, of course, to “ponder, think out, rationalize, meditate on… to put your thinking cap on and use it like it hasn’t been used in a while!”
As a mental fitness guru, I’m just straight up all about that! I want to poke at your brain cells and get them moving and grooving. It’s the best thing in the world for you. Maybe EVEN better than green tea, and you know how I push that.
That’s why we’re launching “Rumination.”
Don’t get me wrong, I want you to think about, and comment on each post I ever add to the blog. I love your comments and certainly learn more from reading your words than I do from reading my own. So, please keep them coming.
I’m going to challenge you, however, with posts under the category, “Rumination.” Sometimes, such as the one today – there’ll be a topic or quote. I’ll ask if you agree or disagree. In the comments, I want you to tell why you agree or why you disagree.
Other times, the post may pose a riddle or mind game for you to figure out and unravel. I love those – what’s more, our minds absolutely thrive on this sort of thing. You can even feel a natural little high after you’ve given your mind a good workout. It’s similar to the one that comes after a great physical workout.
Okay, I think you have the general idea!
Now for today’s Agree or Disagree:
H.G. Glasow once said, “The fewer the facts, the stronger the opinion.” Interesting quote, no?
He certainly makes a great point. Some people dig their heels in as deep as they’ll go and raise their voice as high as it’ll go, leaving you with the impression that they’re just trying to compensate for one simple fact: They’re running on little, if any, information.
It’s as though they think that if they’re loud enough, everyone will assume they’re right. They’re probably also thinking that if they come across as angry and definitive, no one will ask any questions. Questions they KNOW they couldn’t answer in a billion Sundays!
However, on the other side of the proverbial fence, knowledge is fuel and the more fuel we have, the more drive we’ll have. Hmmmm…
So what are your thoughts? Even if you have something to say on BOTH sides of the fence, I’m fine with that…just have your say on one side, then climb over and speak your mind there. After all, you’ll be doing twice as much thinking, right?
Make each moment count double,
