Most of the time, we go about our professional lives communicating about the external world (in editorial, through meta/skills). Sometimes we ponder, reflect, or go through a change that involves some form of overview moment or philosophizing. Considering 'who am I when I do what I do,' or what are the edges of my affordance (to change, offer value, change sectors). In philosophizing, we learn about ourselves and could travel up the meta scale, from the world, commitments, experience, and other tactical things, higher to our intuition and personal framing. The further we are from the world, the less language exists. That is where 'practicing solitude' is helpful. We can get to know ourselves to meet the world better to understand ourselves and re-author others' understanding of us.
If we climb high enough on the meta scale, to some personal singular moment, we hit philosophy, which as a discipline tried to capture universal truths about humanity as a whole.
Philosophy universalizes experiences and the nature of things. I would add that casual (or disciplined) philosophizing can keep us effective and energized through otherwise monotonous professional routines.
