Thinking CRITICALLY about CRITICAL Thinking

Posted on


When it comes to Critical Thinking, too often people are “CRITICISM” thinkers in the sense that they criticize (complain about) everything little thing.

– The weather.
– The coffee.
– The price tag.
– The lack of parking.

Instead, critical thinking should be more about “critical issues” (i.e. “most important” issues). When someone is in “CRITICAL” condition, it’s urgent, important and ultimate and they are given the best care and attention available.

Things like:
+ How we spend our time, talents and treasures.
+ How loved and appreciated we make others feel.
+ How short life is, and how much we make of it.


May our minds and thoughts be focused more on those urgent, ultimate and most important things rather than the petty, silly, useless things we are prone to complain about and criticize.


1) Are you more of a CRITICAL thinker or a CRITICIZING thinker?
2) How can you change your mind to think more “critically”

Leaders are readers.

Filling your head with the ideas of wiser people — page by page and line by line — sharpens our minds and helps us discern truth from error, light from darkness, greatness from commonness.

Readers are leaders. 

Those who guide others had better know something about where they are going and how they are going to get there.

Leaders are readers. 

Never trust a man or woman who claims to know it all. Rather, only follow those who are humble enough to admit they don’t know everything and are always seeking to learn, study, and grow in their understanding of the world through the written Word.

Readers are leaders. 

The simple act of reading a book slows EVERYTHING down enough for the crucial element of thinking known as PROCESSING. Anyone can talk a good game and breeze through a book, but slowing down enough to process thoughts deeply will cause us to evaluate the worth of ideas, whether they are good, better, or best.
