Why isn’t thinking a sport?
I mean, really. In a lot of ways it’s like every other sport: It’s time consuming. It’s exhausting. You have to train yourself to do it well. You can break a sweat. And if you go on Jeopardy! You can make money doing it.
If you really think about it, thinking is a pretty big deal. Not one of us can live without thinking.
Everybody thinks. I’m thinking as I’m writing this blog post, and I’ll continue thinking after I’ve stopped writing. You’re thinking as you are reading what I‘ve written.
No one would say that there’s no one out there that doesn’t think, right?
No one that’s alive, anyway.
You might not have realized it, but you’ve been thinking all day.
Really. If we starting thinking of thinking as a competitive sport, thinking would be just about the most diplomatic sport there is.
So why not think that thinking can be a sport?
