Review :

Short and easy to read exceptional and practical book about the importance of thinking! What a concept. well, for me. There is a chapter on each of various types of thinking: big-picture thinking, focused thinking, creative thinking, realistic thinking, strategic thinking, possibility thinking, reflective thinking, questioning popular thinking, benefiting from shared thinking, practicing unselfish thinking and relying on bottom-line thinking. My favorite quote from the book is "the truth will set you free, but at first it will make you mad". Reminds me of a scripture in the Book of Mormon. It reminds me that whenever someone tells me something I don't want to hear I should listen for and accept the truth in it (and discard what isn't helpful), instead of becoming immediately defensive. The other nugget of wisdom I got was about the importance of planning. That successful people map out or plan their days, and even more successful people plan their weeks, months and years. Of course we've all heard this before, but this was a great reminder to me and I've noticed that putting structure and planning in my days has been extremely helpful!
