Become a Critic of Your Own Thinking

One of the most important things you can do for yourself is to begin the process of becoming a “critic” of your thinking. You do this not to negate or “dump on” yourself, but to improve yourself, to begin to practice the art of skilled thinking and lifelong learning. To do this you must “discover” your thinking, see its structure, observe its implications, and recognize its basis and vantage point. You must come to recognize that, through commitment and daily practice, you can make foundational changes in You need to learn about your “bad” habits of thought and about what you are striving for (habits of thought that routinely improve your thinking).
