“Worst day of leadership is better than the best day of being a spectator” ~ Bill Hybels. “The measure of you as a leader is not what you do, but what others do because of what you do.” ~ Howard Hendricks.

"Critical Thinking" may sound like an obnoxious buzzword from liberal arts schools, but it's actually a useful skill. Critical thinking just means absorbing important information and using that to form a decision or opinion of your own--rather than just spouting off what you hear others say. This doesn't always come naturally to us, but luckily, it's something you can train yourself to do better.
