Posted on: May 31st, 2020 by Clear Thinking Team No Comments

What I found most interesting was the way in which people listened to my story and examples of dangerous thinking, and how they were then able to see how to apply the same kind of thinking to their specific line of work, or everyday life.

I don’t buy into the idea that we can control everything that happens to us. There are too many factors to attend to if we’re going to try. I don’t believe in luck either. It’s something we made up to try to rationalise why some things happen and some things don’t happen. This quote is […]
