We think all day everyday; we are continuously negotiating with our kids, our staff, our bosses; we make decisions time and time again throughout our day. At times, our responses and decisions are made solely on what we know or think in the moment; and maybe that's okay some of the time, but there are many times we should stop and take a broader look before we respond or make a decision! Much of our thinking, left to itself, is biased, distorted, partial, uninformed or down-right prejudiced. Critical thinking means you intentionally stop just thinking and instead put your thoughts into a format such as a mind map, this is one way to train yourself to think critically.
Shoddy thinking is costly, both in money and in quality of life. Excellence in thought, however, can be systematically cultivated and nurtured.
