Slowing things down
This episode is about becoming more introspective. Cancelling the noise, which may include, scrolling through instagram and things outside of your day's plan. We seek to become more reflective thinkers through this episode. In particular, we discuss taking time out for deep thought/ deliberation. In this seclusion time, one would benefit from analysing their weak points and strong points, in terms of their character. From there, the character development can progress.
