As you identify an especially difficult decision or problem, to be able to have a solid hour or more of time to consider the problem, largely uninterrupted (be sure to turn off your phone’s notifications), can fundamentally change the quality of your understanding and your conclusions.

Marty Cagan is right: More people should spend more time taking long walks and just contemplate things, BEFORE they react to them.

A lot of things would probably end up better, if we did that more – thinking before reacting/speaking.

I am not very good at taking long walks myself. Maybe I will come to rue this rare Covid-19 opportunity as a missed opportunity.
