This section in particular summarizes my point:
[I]n failing to emphasize thinking in the workplace, we risk losing its potential. Thinking must be nurtured and facilitated. It is not so easy sometimes to get into the thinking mode. Those “to do” lists in our Blackberries are always stalking us. We feel like we are wasting time if we are not doing something tangible: making calls, answering e-mails, starting the next assignment or project. Nonetheless, it is critically important to develop the discipline of turning off the ringer, putting away the Blackberry, moving aside the laptop, and turning mentally to the challenges in our work.In an age of rapid change, the habit of good thinking is critical for anticipating and generating innovative solutions to ever-emerging problems. My hope is that Claremont’s students graduate with solid habits of thinking – religious intelligence in particular – in order to be vocationally successful in world full of surprises.
