But simple doesn’t mean easy.
Three simple things that you can do to improve your critical thinking skills:
- Question assumptions
- Reason through logic
- Diversify thought
It’s crucial to get outside your personal bubble. You can start small. If you work in accounting, make friends with people in marketing. If you always go to lunch with senior staff, go to a ball game with your junior colleagues. Training yourself this way will help you escape your usual thinking and gain richer insights.
