Start by noticing more. The more you notice, the more you realize there is to notice. As the brilliant Nobelist Albert Einstein observed, “the more we know, the more existence turns out to be mysterious. The more we know, the less we know and the more we become aware of the vastness.”
For example, I was aware of the two types of verbs: transitive and intransitive. But until I looked them up, and got some experience using both, I had no clarity on the difference. If you don’t even know about these two, you’re unaware.
Ask Questions about what you Notice
When you notice something new, start by asking yourself questions. There are seven great interrogative adverbs and pronouns: what, when, how, why, who, where, which.
Investigate the Answers
Check out the answers you come up with, some will be more reliable than others. Don’t self sabotage by believing what others say, check it out for yourself. Your own mental effort is essential to thinking successfully. It doesn’t work to delegate your thinking, just as you don’t get physically fit by delegating your exercise.
Yet many people go through life avoiding the effort of thinking for themselves. The educational system often seems to teach what to think rather than how to think. So you have a good excuse, but if you want the benefits of thinking creatively then you’ll have to think for yourself. If you’ve been taught what to think rather than learning how to think, check this teacher’s letter out – it’s rather alarming!
Don’t Believe in Believing
Thinking creatively can be viewed as tiring work. And if you’re not used to it, it can be. But would you rather delegate your thinking? Whatever you do, you’ll face the consequences, and you don’t want to suffer!
Is the person telling you what to believe on your side? They may pretend they are, but even honest people put their own best interests ahead of yours. Politicians are professionally trained in manipulation and sophism, making even the most ridiculous ideas seem desirable. Ask yourself how believing someone will help them achieve their goals. Will it realistically help you achieve yours? If so, how?
Don’t self sabotage by just believing anybody, even what you are reading here! This is totally sincere, but discover the many benefits of creatively thinking for yourself, investigate the answers to your own questions!
When thinking for yourself, look for breakthroughs, aha moments in which you see how these general principles can change your life. Such creative thinking improves your awareness and clarity about how life works, which increases your personal power.
