Really?? There’s such a thing?
Well, I think so – although it’s probably better to refer to it as ‘deferring’.
This is when I make a positive choice to leave something, to put it aside for a while. It’s a conscious effort to let an idea or problem develop – almost subconsciously and see what happens. Tony Jeary calls this “mental percolation time”. For me, it’s about allowing my brain to make connections – when I’m not thinking!
It often results in ‘the penny drops’ moments.
But beware – there is a danger of inertia creeping in. So if an idea’s not developing, it means that it’s time to do it (or bin it!).
