To see things as they are, avoid assuming that you know what someone is thinking, or that you know their motivations.
When you come across a barrier where you don't understand, try another way. Some learn better through reading, others seeing, others doing or listening.
Weigh them yourself. We are rarely told what's most important to know. When you are tested in life, the people who do best are the ones who understand what is most important. This is a skill that's not taught anywhere. Learn to weigh the facts yourself.
There are newer books, like this one, that are worthy of your time. However, you can often get a better quality learning experience when you go back to older book's like, The Odyssey, The Wealth of Nations, On the Origin of Species, etc.
Much of the time, rather than trying to help, others are focused on selling a service or product.
This goes along with having a Growth Mindset. Reading the book, Mindset by Carold Dweck can elaborate more on the subject.
Geniuses don't wait around for information to fall into their laps. There is no reason not to research and find out the answers to questions you are looking.
Even if your goal is to be an expert in one field, the world is becoming increasingly multidisciplinary. The people that make the greatest breakthrough discovered often have some understanding of other fields.
We have to be careful who we take advice from, as not all advice is good. Always keep in mind where it's coming from.
Do not rely fully on the experiments of scientists or the word of the media. Science although very valuable to society, is not perfect. Scientists have their own biases and expectations, and their own careers to run.
Humans are constantly learning and teaching each other the new things that we learn. But we have to keep in mind our track record. At one time we thought the earth was flat. At one time we didn't realize germs were spread through contact and that we should wash our hands. If you stay up to date with the latest findings, maintain your skepticism.
Seek answers for yourself or from those around you. For example, consider your cultural traditions and practices, your religion the layout of your towns, etc. When you question deeply, you sometimes find that there are many possible ways to approach any given topic or field.
Pretty much every real life decision that comes up can go an infinite amount of directions. You simply can't calculate or know for sure what will happen based on your actions. There are too many variables. Just to name a few, there are reactions of anyone involved, unexpected setbacks (bad weather, car accident), and your level of training may not have prepared you to make good decisions in the first place.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
