by The School of Life

How to Think More Effectively

The School of Life

Overview

Our society places great value on the results of innovative thinking but too little on the genesis of our thoughts. Our education system focuses on test results and the ability to memorize rather than teaching our children how to think most effectively. To work smarter rather than harder, we must shift our thinking.

The School of Life's mission is to teach people how to lead more fulfilling and productive lives through developing emotional intelligence. Through books, films, and classes, this organization co-founded by philosopher Alain de Botton, seeks to help people find connection and self-understanding.

How to Think More Effectively examines various strategies to focus on purpose rather than productivity to complete tasks and innovate.
