There are things that happen to us that get stuck in our mind. These thoughts from time to time come back to my conscious self. Like this one.

The best TED talk I saw is this one from Ricardo Semler. He talks about a few different topics. The one that stuck was about the opposite of work. People might think about leisure - and I would too before watching that talk. But Ricardo makes a point that even leisure can be busy. Keep up with schedules, going from one place to another. It’s still work. He then mentions idleness.

Every time I am gazing at rain falling against a window, or walking in a forest I remember Ricardo’s words.
