The Importance of Daydreaming

论白日梦的重要性


Your best thinking occurs when your mind wanders

你的金点子在你天马行空时产生



Will Willimon May 23, 2014






Your best thinking occurs when your mind wanders

你的思想在漫步云端的时候最活络


Last year’s great book was Daniel Goleman’s, Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence. In Focus Goleman shows how keeping your eye on the ball, focusing your undisciplined mind on the tasks at hand is the key to success in life. Focus enables us to solve problems, to achieve goals.

去年的年度好书是丹尼尔郭尔曼写的《焦点:引领卓越的潜在因素》。在“焦点”中,郭尔曼展示了全神贯注、专心于手头的事物如何使你获得成功。集中注意力能让我们顺利解决问题,并完成指定目标。



But this is my encomium to the glory of a mind adrift. Your best thinking occurs when your mind wanders. Cognitive scientists say that you have an incorrigibly distracted mind. The wandering mind is our brain’s default mode. Left to their own devices, our brains go to the beach when they’re not working on calculus or Angry Birds.

但这只是我对思绪万千的思想的赞美。《你的金点子在你天马行空时产生》。认知科学家会说那只是你的思维涣散根深蒂固罢了。神智恍惚只是我们脑袋的默认模式。若放任自由、不集中于微积分计算或者愤怒的小鸟的话,我们的神智就会跑到海边沙滩上嬉戏玩耍。


See? Even now your mind wanders. I’m desperate to stimulate your cerebral cortex in focusing on the wonders of neuroscience and the lower functions of your brain are dragging you to think about what’s in the refrigerator.

看吧?即使现在你的思想也在到处游荡。我急切地想要刺激你的大脑皮层,让它的注意力集中于神经系统科学的奇妙,而你大脑下方的功能却牵引你去思考冰箱里有什么东西。


A 2009 neurological study shows that half of your thoughts are daydreams. Even now, as your mind drifts away from neuroscience, Goleman says that maybe your mind is wandering toward consideration of pressing personal problems or unresolved dilemmas. Sometimes we are so intimidated by the magnitude of a problem that we dare not consciously think about it. But then, when we’re half asleep, or bored by an op-ed piece, our minds wander toward intimidating mental challenges. And it’s then that we unthinkingly do our best thinking.

一项在2009年发布的神经系统方面的研究表明,你的思维有一半时间都在做白日梦。即使是这一刻,你的思维也可能漂移到神经系统科学之外,郭尔曼说,你的思维可能游移到考虑有压力的个人问题或者尚未解决的两难处境。有时候我们太过于畏惧一个问题的尺度而因此不敢理智地思索。于是,当我们半睡半醒、或者在等待无聊的开场/结束曲时,我们的思绪却飘到了那些令人畏惧的精神挑战上。而这正是当我们无意识中意识最清醒的时刻。
