The last lesson was about The Problem, the deficit in Human Thinking. Today’s lesson begins to look at – The Solution – which I have called, ‘software for your brain’. Click to watch the 15-min tutorial …

— This 15-min session was edited from Dr Michael Hewitt-Gleeson’s televised address with Zondwa Mandela (grandson of Nelson) to the Arab and African Youth Platform in Aswan, Egypt on 17 March, 2019.

The DFQ #02 (Daily Feedback Question) – ‘Leave your thought’ below and answer this question: What idea have you taken from this lesson that you can actually try to use today?

Tomorrow’s Lesson #03 – The Intelligence Trap.

LEAVE YOUR THOUGHT: Those who complete all ten DFQs in this training will get a personalised Lateral Thinking Certificate from the School of Thinking. After you’ve watched and thought about the tutorial session reply with your own answer to the DFQ. In our training for each lesson we have a DFQ – Daily Feedback Question. Usually reply with your own thoughtful answer to the question in around 25 words or so. There’s no ‘right’ answer. It’s meant to be a personal comment. Just leave your thought. You can also read the comments of the others. All the answers will be shared around.

  1. Being closed minded and choosing to “die on hills” will lead you nowhere. The goal is ultimately to be in a state where you can constantly adapt, but to do that you must be capable of being self-critical.

  2. There is often a negative view to changing your mind – look at how politicians are criticised for changing direction. However, in reality it makes sense to continually reevaluate a situation.

  3. I should not be afraid of making mistakes because I can learn and grow from them. To not see mistakes as failures but as lessons.

  4. If I can embed CVS2BVS into my thought processes, and stay mindful of it, I hope it will remind me to pause and look for better views. Mistakes are progress.

  5. I am somewhat surprised. I thought everyone would have an internal conversation in which they constantly appraise situations and issues, asking themselves questions like: Is this true? Why is this so? Can it be done better? If this is true, what are the consequences? etc. Clearly, many people do not do this. How can I now benefit from this new insight?

  6. That you can learn as much from mistakes as you can from success. To always look for the better way of seeing things.

  7. That BVS thinking with effort can be reliability harnessed and as a consequence “somebody can expect the unexpected”!

  8. The benefit and strengths of looking at issues or problems in a different way. Try not to have a fixed position
