06/14/20 – Critical Thinking

CURRENT EVENTS

Please try to question what you have been told. Does it conform to what you have directly experience? This is called critical thinking.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

I wrote this book six years ago and  somewhere in those six years, I lost my way. I’m going to re-read the book page by page.

This book will not change your life–only you can do that.

I’m Tired of Being Ordinary, Are You?

By Wm. Allen

There are five frogs on a log. One decides to jump off. How many are left?

If you responded with four, you’re wrong. The correct answer is five, because remember—deciding isn’t doing.

If you are tired of being ordinary, it’s time to stop thinking about changing your life and start actively pursuing a changed life. And this is just the guide to get you moving. Comprised of fifty-two weekly lessons that all open with a joke or riddle and close with a movie suggestion, this book makes the difficult journey of becoming extraordinary a little easier and a lot more enjoyable. (Source: The book itself)

These are very stressful times and stress can kill you. So, perhaps some of these tips may help you reduce the stress in your life.

CHARACTER TRAITS

SOCIAL TRAITS

LEARNING TRAITS

If you watch the unfolding of events in the last week or so, you may want to question the concept social distancing among people without any symptoms.

MISCELLANEOUS

I understand in Michigan we are finally going to be able to return our bottles on June 15, 2020.

Personally, I think there were getting to be a health hazard.

  1. Is that your door? My mother’s fridge looks like that! And then it grew too small so she bought a whiteboard that looks like the fridge and the door. And then she bought another whiteboard which is also beginning to grow tight in space… 😂

    And the kitty! That one is begging for a share.

  2. Talking about critical thinking, I agree, not a lot of people have this capacity to think critically. We are all born with the capacity to think, but not everyone is capable of critical thinking. Moreover, we have a tendency to operate within our own echo chamber, where the only information that goes through our brain is information that validates our prior knowledge, vindicates our prior decision, sustains our existing beliefs. We should get into the habit from time to time of walking down the road less traveled, the one taken by critical thinkers. I wrote a blog article on this subject – https://authorjoannereed.net/what-is-critical-thinking/. Feel free to check it out!
