The world is filled with so much information and we’re absorbing them from all aspects of our lives every single day. Because of this, we tend to just skip from one information to another, not stopping to reflect and take it in. Chief Envisioner at TELUS, Dan Pontefract, proposes for us to rethink our thinking. We are being busy without action, so to counteract that, we need to optimize the way we think in order to balance reflection and action to enhance our critical thinking skills as well as creativity.
There are so many things in the world that holds us back from achieving a lot of things. One of those is the environment. The people we surround ourselves have a huge impact in our lives. Author, keynote speaker, and workshop facilitator Leo Bottary touches on the power of peers and on how to determine what peer groups are for you. He talks about the importance of knowing what it is that we’re trying to do and from there, finding the people who aligns with you.
