The Importance Of Silence And Solitude

You may not be aware of how important silence and solitude can be.  Don’t confuse this with “the silent treatment” or “Solitary confinement”.  Being around no one but yourself gives you some clarity on certain things.  It’s hard to make up your mind when you have people constantly “putting a bug in your ear”.  It’s not easy trying to come up with the next big innovation when you have people constant interrupting you while you’re working.  Even Superman has his Fortress of Solitude, where he can go that is void of people asking him for help all the time.

Don’t be afraid to be alone sometimes.  Being alone is not always a bad thing.  You may not realize it but you may be stuck in a rut because you always have people around you pushing their ideas on you.  When you step away from people, all people, you can finally get some work done.  Go to your “man cave” and just reflect on your life.  You may realize that you can do a lot better than you are now just by doing this.  You may be working yourself to death.  By being alone and thinking, you can recharge your batteries and think of ways to make your life more easier.  You may be a slacker.  By being alone and in solitude from some of your “slacker friends” you can think of ways to make your life better.

When you start pulling yourself away from everyone, you’ll be able to feel more at ease.  It won’t always be easy, but when you go back to the rest of the world, you may appreciate them more or you may find out that you need to cut the wrong people out of your life.
