My Mind. My Thoughts. Thinking how to think?

Let us believe that everyone is uniquely designed to work in ways that are differently productive than the other. Read on to know more about learning on how to think-

Develop thoughts.

Put your ideas together. Form a combination of what you think. Try to compose your thoughts and organise them mentally. Imagine and create a sequence of your thoughts. Get used to 'changing and adapting'. Improvisation is a boon. Construct your thoughts according to your situational need.

Jot the purpose.

Attach a tag to what ever you think - 'purpose?'. Find a purpose for each imagination. Purpose has to be built-in, to give birth to something valuable, useful and worthwhile with your thoughts. Define your purposes when you think. Ask questions. Investigate why you're thinking about what you're thinking. Avoid to begin thinking without any purpose.


Categorise your ideas into different sections of the situation. By examining, you're being careful to locate the need of relevance. Discover the contrast. Determine the idea and the connection between ideas. There's no time for inappropriate thoughts.


Proof-read your thoughts. Differentiate between the need and other stand-by elements. Justify your thoughts with accurate information. Be your own critic. Rate yourself with principles or values. Make judgments based on priority and time. Validate your imaginations before you convert it into actions or words.

Understand and Remember.

Simplify your ideas. Keep it as simple as you can understand it. It must make sense to you though. Get the meaning straight. Check if your understanding matches with the purpose of the act. Remember it by naming, matching, choosing and so on. Illustrate what you understand, may be with facts and examples. On a longer term, you must be able to remember and interpret your thoughts on your own.


Thoughts rot in your brains if they're left alone. Apply. Take it an extra mile to bring life into it. Practice, Plan and Participate. Process your thoughts into actions. Use and develop your capacity to think better. Progress in application. Healthy and positive growth by thinking, would be much required in the modernised society. So, gear up.
