Thinking about thinking!

 

Practicing family medicine for over 30 yrs has definitely taught me a lot.  Seeing how people think has become a passion of mine.  And yes, it makes sure that I check under my own hood to see how my engine (mind) is doing and what I would be wise to do so as not to encourage any premature breakdowns!

 

Thinking is defined as follows:

think·ing

 

adjective

1.

using thought or rational judgment; intelligent.

"he seemed to be a thinking man"

synonyms: intelligent, sensible, reasonable, rational; More

noun

1.

the process of using one's mind to consider or reason about something.

"they have done some thinking about_____________ (you fill in blank)”

 

What we think about,  can be divided into two!  Sure we can sub-divide without limits beyond the time & energy it takes— but you have 2 real divisions.  Here is what come to my mind:

- Positive vs. Negative

- Helpful vs. Hurtful

- Long term vs Short term

- Right vs. Left

- Doing what is right vs. Doing what is not right

- Others as priority vs  Me focussed*

- [Perhaps some input from y’all]

 

The divisions are not always right vs wrong —though sometimes it is.  Wisdom will help us all avoid the 2 ditches on either side of the roads! 

 

So keep thinking!  

 

Share if you so desire.   Eager to pass on it on!
