Thinking – The Art Of Becoming A Mindful Thinker
As a fundamental activity, thinking is a skill. It is your most essential resource—the foundation of your humanity.
The quality of your thinking determines the quality of your experiences in life. To be a poor thinker is to have a horrible disadvantage and handicap in life. As a skill, thinking is goal-oriented and intentional. Thinking as a function and experience is also a competency. A crucial skill for managing life effectively. Determine life with precision, accuracy, and clarity gives you the ability to understand what’s happening and to make good decisions. It gives you the power to question, explore, and examine your thinking to make it more true to the outside world.
While We All Think, We Do Not All Think Equally Well.
Some people are great thinkers. They come up with new ideas that change the world. Inventing new products that improve the quality of lives. They create new businesses and possibilities. They are executive thinkers.
Most people are not! Though “thinking” seems so natural, inevitable, and effortless—many do not do it very well? How could thinking go wrong? How could one not think? Probably most people are poor thinkers—lazy thinkers, sloppy thinkers, muddled thinkers. Just listen to them! They are vague, imprecise, convoluted, and wrong-headed about lots of things! Many avoid engaging in real thinking.
“PROCESSING” — Processing Is Working An Idea Over In Your Mind.
Considering starts when you do not understand something: when you are confused, perplexed, doubting, questioning. You think only when you encounter a problem, a confusion, what you don’t know.
“Working” — considering is effortful. You represent it, consider it, taking multiple perspectives to it, argue for it, then with equal passion against it—which involves effort—work, exertion. You become conscious!
While this is a great objective well worth going after, it will not be easy. Contemplating itself is not easy. Thinking-about-your-thinking is even more difficult to do in a disciplined and effective way. Emerson said it best, “The hardest task in the world is cognizing.”
Who Should Attend This Program?
Anyone who wants to learn how to cognize effectively,
Those whose thoughts goes round and round in circles,
People needing to update their processing,
Anyone wanting to develop their perceptual patterns.
Day 1 – Foundational Thinking Skills. Your Thinking Journey.
The first five skills are designed for us to work over an idea, find out how valid or invalid it is, and keep our thinking fresh. In doing so, you are able to keep your mind and perspective fresh, alive, vital, turned-on. Without these, thinking becomes dull, lazy, superficial, dependent or the other extreme driven by agenda and the know-it-all mentality.
2) Questioning (Meta-Modeling)
4) Indexing / Extensionalizing
Other Day 1 Topics include
Your Inner Movie
Navigating Your Mind
Irrationality and Brain Updates
Today’s Thinking Creates Tomorrows Thinking Structures/ Patterns.
The challenge of thinking is that your pre-frontal cortex generates a special kind of mind—self-reflexive consciousness. As you contemplate so you create mental structures (“theory of mind,” “model of world”) through which you think. You think your cognizing templates into being (did you get that?!). This makes your processing “psycho-logical” in nature — it makes sense from the inside-out to you — even though it may not make sense to anyone else, for from the outside-in or in terms of understanding the world outside your nervous systems. The meta-cognitive skills of executive processing solve this problem.
Testimonials – Life As A Thinker
The content of today’s course gave me the tools and insight into how to reduce the lazy automatic thinking and how to replace it with higher quality choice thinking.
This training was very informative and it also shows one how to use the information to transform their life.
I felt enlightened by this program when learning about the early development of the brain and how some child development cycles can be held onto and carried forward to adulthood, not serving us as fully alive humans.
It was good to learn how to use my mind in a positive way, with the techniques that I learned at the course. Also how to apply the positive thoughts from my past life experiences and use them to enhance my present day feelings.
It was great to find out my all or nothing thinking wasn’t just a flaw but a real thing that can be improved and utilised
It has expanded my perception of how I am consciously and sub consciously altering my thoughts. I will be more aware of my thinking and be more mindful than mindless!

“Thinking is a skill, humans are the only species on the planet, that have to learn to be human. I have found most humans in society untrained and just don’t think and I was one of them, just blurtout anything, unthinking, I find the majority of us humans do this, and what a fantastic world we would live in if we would all just learn to think before we spoke or acted.
Thinking One Day teaches us to think before we literally put our foot in our mouths before we speak.
With the training, on day 1 of 3 all up, we are taught how to stop, listen, process, and concentrate on what we say before we say it.
There are more positive ways to communicate I have found also, there are ways we all go about our thinking, Automatic, and in my case agenda, I write everything down and get annoyed when my schedule is broken, there are strategies to cope and change ways of thinking to continue in life without stressing.
Finally, I found the childhood development of the brain most fascinating, from 9-12 months till teen years, how it develops and what is absorbed and learnt during this time..
I recommend Thinking One Day, it helped me and I am looking forward to days 2 and 3 in the near future to develop further my brain in the world of communication and thinking.”
So when you go to Thinking Day 1 and learn to become a clear, precise, and understand thinking — you can improve the quality of your life a hundred-fold.
