Jason Fried:

It’s like I had to be first with an opinion – as if being first meant something. But what it really meant was that I wasn’t thinking hard enough about the problem. The faster you react, the less you think. Not always, but often.

I recently learned something interesting. Your brain can do one of these three things at once:

  1. Listen
  2. Think
  3. Speak

It is physically impossible to do more than one of those.
