Pick of the day: Thinking about thinking about life

Tuesday's pick of the day highlighted a thoughtful blog that often explores the way we think about thinking--how we come to make the decisions we do and how we perceive the world. Today, we have an interesting column by the New York Times' David Brooks, who explores how we think about life. There are those who choose to set out on a course -- I'm going to be a neurosurgeon! -- and don't strike their sail until their mission is accomplished. Then are are those who react to the vagaries of life, moving along with the pull and tug of time and place and lead what Brooks calls a "summoned life." I'm not sure which is better, or even if they are mutually exclusive, but it's an interesting notion nonetheless.
