I've been wanting to write something else than about IT so I thought why not write about LIFE in general. This idea occurred to me multiple times even when I started writing and researching information about a book I wanted to write.
I always thought there are many places where you can inform yourself and there are already too many people who write about almost everything.
The main problem I found is that there are relatively FEW people who write about thinking in a way that thinking is an everyday action.
Gathering information, forming an opinion, understanding statistics.. these are all daily activities needed to succeed.. However as the years passed the sad realization is that most people never stop to think about something.
We all have opinions, though how much research do we do before we come to a certain idea?
People rarely change opinions, some never develop the mental flexibility necessary to use critical thinking so they remain blocked under superstitions and bad habits throughout life.
Education is something that differentiates the ones who succeed and are happy from those who are unhappy. Of course a high IQ doesn't determine happiness nor success, but the total of thinking does.
