5 elements of effective thinking
  1. Understand deeply: Be brutally honest about what you know and don’t know. Then see what’s missing, identify the gaps, and fill them in.
  2. Make mistakes: Mistakes are great teachers; they highlight unforeseen opportunities and holes in your understanding.
  3. Raise questions: Constantly create questions to clarify and extend your understanding.
  4. Follow the flow of ideas: Look back to see where ideas came from and then look ahead to discover where those ideas may lead.
  5. Change: You can always improve, grow, and extract more out of your education, yourself, and the way you live your life.

Step Outside Of Yourself

You can only change your mindset if you consistently care about your thought process. Start thinking big about your tasks and imagine how they can influence your world.

You should start thinking big without reservations or hesitation. You can only contribute more, learn more, become more and stretch yourself and your own abilities beyond their current limitations if you give yourself permission to think beyond the obvious.

Be Curious

Don’t take things on face value, investigate their workings, assume nothing and question everything.

Start the curious habit of questioning everyday things and methods to get answers to questions you mostly ignore. Maintain an open mind and be willing to learn, unlearn and relearn.

Wanting to control everything

By procrastinating, you hold the most control over whatever task you’re working on. However, this also means, obviously, that that particular task isn’t being done.

Seeing a task as one big project

Almost everything we do can be broken down into little manageable parts.

Take, for instance, the laundry. If the laundry seems like a daunting task to you, break it down into steps. Collect all your dirty clothes. Separate colors and whites. Put your clothes on a wash cycle. Put them in the dryer. Fold them.

Being a perfectionist

It can be tempting to put things off or delay completing tasks simply because you’re worried about the outcome being less than perfect.

Just remember that it’s okay if things don’t turn out exactly how you had them in your head.
