“the most powerful mind is the quiet mind. It is the mind that is present, reflective, mindful of its thoughts and its state. It doesn’t often multitask, and when it does, it does so with a purpose.”
Maria Konnikova, Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes

“We are terrible at seeking evidence that challenges our own beliefs, but other people do us this favor, just as we are good at finding errors in other people’s beliefs.”
Maria Konnikova, Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes

“A change in perspective, in physical location, quite simply forces mindfulness. It forces us to reconsider the world, to look at things from a different angle. And sometimes that change in perspective can be the spark that makes a difficult decision manageable, or that engenders creativity where none existed before.”
Maria Konnikova, Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes
