Let critical thinking be about decisions and not beating yourself up…

Let critical thinking be about decisions and not beating yourself up…

As a leadership, communication and behavioral performance executive coach, my toolbox contains lots of content for helping people to practice a critical thinking style for decisions; teams; strategy and themselves. It does not include being self-critical. Today no one needs our criticism. What people, and you need, are ways to figure out what is best for you at this moment.

Critical thinking requires being present and knowing the details of the moment in order to make decisions and help plan what is most important now. I wonder when I think of my training for strategy that had us look at a 5 year plan for what would be next and how we would work that plan. Right now, the next hour of our lives seems fuzzy and out of our current control. It is not…

How you are this moment dictates how you will be the next moment. Using critical thinking as your standard, puts you in the driver’s seat for this moment. It lets you be decisive; present; calm; using your talents and strengths to your advantage; and allows you to weather these moments. Breathe and allow what is going on in these moments to help you do your critical thinking. The world has NOT ended…turned upside down and looks very different…but it has NOT ended. You still get to choose this moment which lets you have the next moment.

May we help?

To your success,

P.S. I love this YouTube background music supporting us to think clearly and be less afraid and defensive. Be well, be safe, find peace. I recommend Jason Stephenson’s music and work for easing stress, allowing clarity and breathing in what is best for all of us.
