We’re not taught how to think in schools. But one of my first mentors, Rich Schefren, he really concentrates very hard on helping people think better.
Simple little tools like working out how to solve your problems using a post-it notepad and a window and I’ve taught that to my kids too.
Anything that brings clarity of thinking, anything that means you think logically rather than emotionally is to be embraced and there are lots of what’s called mental models out there.
I used to buy books called things like “How to Make Good Decisions” because I just didn’t have a clue.
But using some of these simple mental models help you think through the challenges you’re facing, the difficulties, the obstacles, and come out the other side with a better answer. Even if it’s just to flip a coin and see what your gut tells you.
