Lesson 2: Focused Thinking and Creative Thinking
To do well in life, we must first think well. But can we actually learn new mental habits? Thinking for a Change answers that with a resounding “yes” – and shows how changing your thinking can indeed change your life.
In this audio visual presentation of John Maxwell’s Thinking for a Change, EQUIP trainers John Hull and Todd Mullins help you assess your thinking style, guide you to new ones, and step by step teach you the secrets of: Big-Picture Thinking – seeing the world beyond your own needs and how that leads to great ideas. Focused Thinking – removing mental clutter and distractions to realise your full potential. Creative Thinking – stepping out of the “box” and making breakthroughs. Reflective Thinking – looking at the past to gain a better understanding of the future …and much more. Illuminating and life-changing, Thinking for a Change is a unique primer not on what to think, but how to best use one of your most precious possessions: your mind.
Each lesson starts with a talk from Willow Creek and ends with a Willow Creek conference session. These are provided for reflection and inspiration.
Opening Thought and Prayer
The purpose of education is perhaps more about discovery than knowledge.
Lord, as I approach this material,
Help me to see myself as you see me,
Not as I want to be seen.
