Critical thinking - I sort of thought I knew the meaning, but also realized, being sometimes a "knee jerk" kind of gal, that I really didn't full understand or apprectiate how to optimize my critical thinking - I don't think I'm a 1 or a 2 but I definitely not an 8. So I thought, what the heck, look up the definition , not just to learn something new, but to be more accurate as well.

According to [b]Encarta[b]Critical is "essential: absolutely necessary for the success of something" and Thinking is "the mind's ability to form thoughts."

You've convinced me that I have an opportunity to learn more about critical thinking. I can see that now knowing the definition of critical thinking is interesting. What now becomes much more important to me is raise my "score" in this competency to enhance and ensure personal and professional success.



A strong moral compass does indeed greatly facilitate the ability to make strong judgment calls in critical situations.

I am looking forward to read the book "The Opposable Mind: How Successful Leaders Win Through Integrative Thinking" by Roger L Martin which elaborates on "the predisposition and the capacity to hold two [or more] diametrically opposed ideas" in one's head and then "without panicking or simply settling for one alternative or the other, produce a synthesis that is superior to either opposing idea."

Make youself a better person and know who you are before you try and know someone else and expect them to know you.

Great post. The question I think all entrepreneurs have to ask is, "how good am I at predicting the future?"

In reality, which I know is a nebulous term but I am using it very specifically here (as it relates to nature, and the way progress works), as good as you are at predicting things by making logical sense of them, by using metrics or some fancy process, you really have to examine how much inaction you cause by thinking this way.

No, you shouldn't carelessly navigate through the land of your business but.. thinking things like "what will this do to the perception of my family?" Eh, I don't know about that.

Prediction thinking and informed decisions are good in some cases, but cause a lot of inaction in others. There's too much literature out there (and too much being taught to those poor mba students) that in the end will limit people more than it will encourage them to take action.


I think that no-one is really elriteny the person that they want to be. We can all aspire to being the person we want to be without letting that become too important. We should be happy being the person we are, but equally continue to work towards becoming who we want to be. Bearing in mind that we are just one person, we can aim to improve or change certain of our aspects/traits but we have to remember that we cannot become an elriteny new person, created out of our (sometimes ridiculous) aspirations. And then of course there is the difference between who we want to be and what we want to be.
