You Can’t Change Course on Autopilot
Su Haley recently sent me an article on thinking. The writer commented that he’s “less concerned with what [people] think than that they think.” He’s right on.
We’re all aware that we don’t have to think. Our brains run on autopilot just fine using intuition. That’s okay unless we want to improve; that requires thinking.
