Great Thoughts
  • Richard Hamming used to have "great thoughts time" - when he would only discuss "big" things, like:
    • "where is the field going?"
    • "what's going to happen in next 10 years?"
  • I can't be thinking "great thoughts" all of the time, this is also probably related to "energy levels"
  • maybe great thoughts can be thought better when thinking by writing
    • they certainly can persist over time, and accrete this way


Deliberate Practice and Stress

  • maybe connected to Great Thoughts that only can be thought with "hard work"?
