Is it high time to encourage more critical thinking in our daily life? Most probably, yes. When we open the news tomorrow print or electronic, when we get tempted to the “no cost EMI” in flipkart, amazon this year or go out during the pandemic we need to weigh out all the possibilities before our decision. Are you blaming a particular group or Govt of your state or central for this pandemic? Are you confused whether Rahul Gandhi is right when he says “even Bangladesh is ahead of us in GDP” or “Pakistan handled Covid better than us”, don’t show your confirmation bias to look for evidences supporting your pre-determined view-point, please read the report on different websites of Pro-Govt as well as anti-Modi media houses before you reach the conclusion. Constructive criticism of the rituals that you follow might help you to understand the distinction between culture and religion. Critical thinking is something which is still lacking from our basic education system or neglected which needs to improve. Superstitions can’t be justified by fitting reasons behind it. The first few sessions of critical thinking talked about bias or having selective thinking and how to get rid of it. Overall, it was good to think critically in different corners of our personal and professional life.
In this session I learnt about pain to power. Also learnt that face the fear don´t ignored the fear.

“Words have a magical power. They can bring either the greatest happiness or deepest despair; they can transfer knowledge from teacher to student; words enable the orator to sway his audience and dictate its decisions. Words are capable of arousing the strongest emotions and prompting all men’s actions.”
Words have immense power and whatever words we utter are by default they are registered in our subconscious mind. So, come what may, we should always try to be mindful of the words we use with ourselves or with others. We want to empower ourselves by taking risks and coming out of our comfort zone which will lead us to the path of power. Today’s session also reminded me of the ritual which I have started in my class i.e. ‘Positive affirmations as the starter of the class’ and definitely, I could witness an optimistic change in my students due to it. The best part was reframing our mission statement by using present tense instead of future tense which will work as a catalyst to accomplish it. Overall, it was an enriching session that helped us to delve into our strengths and weaknesses and inspiring us to become a better version of ourselves.
While attending this workshop, I have started thinking rationally and more clearly about what I should believe and what not by applying more thought towards it as well as reflecting up on it.It truly helped in my decision making although at times few my bias took over my mind at time.I still try to apply this skill and make myself more aware about my problems or situations.It is still a long way to master the skill…
I read this somewhere and it hit me…
Critical thinking requires the development and use of foresight as far as this is possible. As Doris Day sang, “the future’s not ours to see”.
The best learning in the integrity session was about using positive affirmations to make impossible into possible. Also to overcome our fears and change problems into opportunity.
I am strong because of my hard time,
wiser because of my mistakes,
and happier because of my bad experience.
It was a great experience of learning and sharing. I learnt that we need to overcome our fear and insecurities and face them with all our might. Positive words empower us to achieve success. They help us to navigate our life from pain to power.
I got to learn by attending today’s class is how I can use the correct vocabulary like life is not a struggle but it is an adventure and how not to whine in any given situation but try to convert a problem into an opportunity, watching the movie also made me realized that how to make a better society for women and how ethics and values should be inculcated by the parents to their children.
Critical thinking workshop is a wonderful experience so far!
I get to know many things but the most interesting was different types of biases! I mean there are so many that it is difficult to a find a person without any bias.
I really wonder how to know the extent to which we are driven by these biases ! It definitely would take a lot of efforts to be free from these biases.
Looking forward to more sessions!
