Remember the adage ‘Look before you leap’? Well, critical thinking requires you to look harder at all the elements involved, and factor them into your jump.
Check out the road surface, factor in air resistance, watch out for potholes and you have a better chance of figuring out exactly how far and how effortlessly you can leap. Learn how to do that before every action or decision you take.
Discover the joys of thinking through complex problems; analyze every situation with clarity and objectivity. Add a pinch of healthy skepticism, and you have the recipe for long-term success.
