(10/19/14) Every day we are faced with making decisions; some are easy and quick and others are difficult and time-consuming. For those decisions that require deep thinking, it’s helpful to use a simple systematic methodology that not only saves time, but also ensures you have thoroughly examined the situation. I first learned Edward DeBono’s powerfully simple tool the “Six Thinking Hats” in 2000 and share it with others as a critical thinking method.
All of these changes, and yes I mean all of them, bring opportunities. Even the heartbreaking changes offer us an opportunity to take an assessment of where we are right now on the journey, where we are going and spur us to be conscious in our choices.
The idea is that thinking can be conducted in a way that more fully explores topics employing formal techniques based on the brain’s behavior. What makes thinking difficult is the conflicting thoughts of our heart (emotions), our head (logic and information), and our soul (hope and creativity). “Six Thinking Hats” provides a way for us to separate these thoughts and then focus on one thinking mode at a time. These modes are represented by six different hats.
