When was the last time you had time to think about your next move on a project? Or the day's interactions? Or the big picture? In today's mobile-enabled world where we're reachable anywhere, I think we are losing site of the benefits of unplugging and thinking.

To guide us through this discussion is author and entrepreneur Daniel Forrester.

Daniel Forrester is the Founder and CEO of THRUUE. Daniel is the author of Consider: Harnessing the Power of Reflective Thinking in Your Organization.
