Thinking Smart

In the hope to improve the way that I think, I picked up and read the following book a few weeks ago: Thinking Smart: You are how you think by Khaw Choon Ean. Published by Pelanduk Publications. ISBN CODE : 9679789182.

Basically, the book is about applying the Theory of Constraints to develop one's thinking skills so as to solve problems and make responsible and effective decisions with commitment.

In this book, I was introduced to the Theory of Constraints Thinking Tools known as "The Cloud", "The Branch" and the "Ambitious Target Tree". It is quite interesting to see how what had first began as a business management philosophy could be applied to the context of teaching and education.

The challenging part is to know how to apply some of the useful concepts in my life.
