“Thinking is hard work; that’s why so few do it.”
“More gold has been mined from the thoughts of man than has ever been taken from the earth.”

No matter what you choose to do, go to your thinking place, take paper and pen, and make sure you capture your ideas in writing.
Ideas have a short shelf life. You must act on them before the expiration date.
To become someone who can mine a lot of gold, you need to keep repeating the process of good thinking.
Rarely do ideas come fully formed and completely worked out. Most of the time, they need to be shaped until they have substance.
