Learn to think critically. It could save your life. All too often people base their knowledge on things they hear. Most of us prefer to be agreeable and conform with a behavioral norm created by those around us. Some people say “think wonderful thoughts and you’ll be happy”. Sadly, that doesn’t work when you’re on a collision course with a serious threat. Don’t kid yourself. When you are asked to evacuate because there is a fire that can’t be contained or your town is in the path of hurricane make certain you get out of the way. Your special belief that things will be OK will not save you from calamity. Don’t base your actions on old information like the baby boomers retiring to coastal locations in Florida as they ignore widespread flooding and hurricane activity.
When you learn to perceive of change and investigate conditions with an open mind, you’ll be able to make better decisions. That process of good decision making can save your life and help you to live with meaning rather than have some aimless existence.
You are blessed because you can learn whatever you want on the Internet for free. That education was something unavailable even 10 years ago. Go to Youtube.com. You can learn critical thinking, physics, math, chemistry, knitting, carpentry, plumbing, farming or robotics. It will cost you nothing so don’t waste your time doing nothing. Become an artist of any kind – dancer, writer, singer, choreographer, sculptor, musician. Start learning on the Internet now. YOUR TIME IS VALUABLE.
