How much time do you set aside each day for "unthinking"?

Over the years, your mind has collected a lot of ridiculous ideas. It's not your fault. Someone gave them to you and you didn't have time to properly assess whether they were garbage or gold and so you tucked them away into your mind. And more stuff got piled in on top of them and around them and so you forgot about them, except they've been there all this time. They've been poisoning the other ideas in your head. They've been making that beautiful quilt you got from your great-grandmother smell like rotten fishheads and old milk jugs.

Resolve to set aside some time each day to go through an idea and hold it up to the light now that you're older. Perhaps it no longer suits you.
