Have to agree with you about needing more time to think as you grow older. I think it's a function of growing aware of more detail in whatever you do; with experience, you've learned to recognize the difference between mediocre and good, and good often takes a lot more thought and energy, thus requiring fewer distractions in your day.

When we're younger, our primary function is to consume information and learn; as we age, that balance shifts to a primary function of creation and output based on our experience, which is a much more internally driven process.

The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning, and does not stop until you get to work.
