Thinking About Thinking

Here is Edward De Bono on Thinking About Thinking.

It is not very often that anyone thinks about thinking. We do not think about walking or breathing. These things just happen.

Yet to watch our thinking in action can be very helpful and instructive. We can notice our usual habits. We can notice our weaknesses – and we can also notice our strengths.

Dealing with everyday matters is not a very good way to develop better thinking skills. The pressures are too great, and the search for a safe routine is simply too attractive.

Now I need to figure out how to “watch my thinking in action”.  I have made a few attempts but will be happy to hear about your own experience.
