Chapter 6. Becoming a Critical Thinker > A Willingness to Look at Yourself

Strategy 1:. A Willingness to Look at Yourself

As much as possible, practice honest self-awareness and reflection. You can improve your thinking and learning by looking at how you are thinking. You can challenge limiting, habitual styles of thinking and find new ways to look at each situation.

To begin the process of critical thinking you must first look at your thoughts. Focusing on your thinking can take effort and sometimes can be uncomfortable. When faced with a workplace challenge, you can decide to focus just on the easier parts of the task you are familiar with or you can focus on what you need to learn to succeed. You can respond to a problem in the same old way, or you can look at the patterns of how you think about the problem and discover a newer, improved strategy for dealing with it.
