The Power of Critical Thinking

Woman in Glasses Thinking

Critical thinking is becoming increasingly important as the world moves faster and faster. Take some time to learn how to improve your critical thinking skills.

With all the information streaming at you every day and the increased speed of decision making, critical thinking becomes more important every day.

Recently I had occasion to speak with Pete Mockaitis of the How to be Awesome at Your Job podcast. We discussed critical thinking and some of the techniques successful people use to solve their most complex problems. We discussed:

– Why slowing down will help you better solve problems
– How to differentiate facts from judgments
– How to use the 5 “whys” and the 7 “so whats” to think more clearly about causes and effects

Listen to the podcast here:

I hope you enjoyed my conversation with Pete. I certainly enjoyed speaking with him. I hope our discussion prodded some new ways of approaching critical thinking.
