Thinking for yourself means doing your utmost to work out how you should act and then being willing to take responsibility for those actions.
In the past it was hard to access information – now the opposite is true. Now the challenge is learning to think so that information can be translated into knowledge. Now everyone is both entitled and required to contribute to the generation and application of knowledge.
What everybody needs to know about thinking is that it’s no longer someone else’s job so, it really is time we all learned to truly think for ourselves.
