There are levels of thinking. Most people think at first level thinking. Second, third, and fourth level thinking is extremely rare. But in order to learn to think like a genius, we must discipline ourselves to practice next level thinking. First level thinking sees what is immediate and obvious. It only observes the immediate problem without consideration for potential consequences. It only observes the immediate opportunity without consideration for other potential opportunities. It thinks like everybody else is thinking. There are simple, but challenging principles and practices that you and I can put into our lives on a regular basis to discipline ourselves to higher levels of thinking. Make a specific time and place to think. Capture ideas. See beyond the obvious. Move from transactional to transformational thinking Create a massive amount of new experiences. Read voraciously across all genres. Ask better questions to yourself and to next level thinkers. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/gregory-denning/message
