(your own) Integrity
THINK provides broad based educational platforms, programs, guidance, and adoptive insights to/for acquiring and achieving individual (national) "empowerment" – pathways that in fact work in the real world.
It is about educational steps/processes supporting and guiding everyone to ReThink – ReDial – ReFocus – ReEnergize for Success.
It is about empowering each other so that together we can all reunite via reasoned thinking to get our country back on track.
It is about getting back to basics becoming better or more intelligently focused regarding the matters of real importance.
It is about re energizing our "American Character".
It is about providing self sustaining precepts and principles to save ourselves and future generations from otherwise virtually certain cataclysmic endings.
Five percent of the people think; ten percent of the people think they think;
and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.
Thomas A. Edison
There are three (3) basic components (essentially all are interrelated and connected one to the other) within THINK strategies and programs for achieving best results and outcomes for everyone and our nation.
Requisite Acumen or Knowledge
Acquiring all necessary knowledge relative to the matter or issues presented based on objective facts. It is often referred to as having the necessary acumen in order to objectively analyze anything. Without that acumen any follow-on processes can have little if any possibility for positive or desired outcomes.
Applied Ethical Values
Knowledge can be power typically bringing great enlightenment. However, power, regardless of how originated, held or utilized, without ethical standards (e.g., respect, honesty, empathy/caring, responsibility/ accountability, cooperation, and moral courage) brings nothing but the worse of all consequences for everyone.
A person educated in mind and not in morals is menace to society. – Juanita Kidd Stout
Properly Applied Reasoned Thinking
Reasoned or critical thinking is an art, a science, and a practiced discipline for problem solving processes for achieving best outcomes, desired results. It requires having the requisite knowledge or acumen then properly applying ethical grounded objective facts in order to formulate best decisions of value. Critical thinking is a self-reflective guide for improved reasoning skills through careful analysis, reasoned inference, and thoughtful evaluations of objective facts to achieve positive goals. It specifically rejects "what to think" as opposed to seeking best “methodologies of how to think”.
[Thinking is] what a great many people think they are doing when they are merely rearranging their prejudices. – William James
When all three components are brought together positive outcomes for the individual and all involved (as well our nation) become realities.
It's time to get "back to basics"? As individuals and a nation we are "out of balance", especially with regard to all ethical perspectives.
It's time to create a radical shift away from the usual circuitous paradigms for failure and stalemate – instead immediately stop, regroup, and get back to basics and fundamentals.
It’s time to –
- properly acquire and utilize more efficient mechanisms for acquiring the requisite acumen,
- self investing/applying ethical values/standards, and
- bringing all of them together/employing for reasoned or critical thinking
THINK seeks to bring all components together for the benefit of everyone and that translates in to "real world" EMPOWERMENT.
It's time to take direct decisive action.
It's time to make the commitment for the restoration of what has always "worked" – getting "back to basics" through living by and seeking ethical excellence through rational critical thinking and reasoning.
Critical thinking is a desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set in order; and hatred for every kind of imposture. – Francis Bacon
