Sometimes it may be hard to acknowledge that our point of view is wrong. Personally, I find it very difficult to accept when someone else is right. However, as the book suggests, this can be counterproductive for our thinking mechanism, as it inhibits our analytical thinking, and the ability to switch perspectives.
If you want to improve your thinking and be more analytical of yourself, instead of making rushed decisions, How to Think More Effectively is the book for you. The author gives practical advice on how to use your negative feelings for a positive return, how to set goals, and structure your life starting with your thoughts. Rather than turning their book into an emotional, catchy, and motivational speech, The School of Life likes to play on the rational side of things and deliver practical advice. 2b1af7f3a8
