Description
We all envy the natural thinkers of this world. They have the best ideas, make the smartest decisions, are open minded and never indecisive.

Is there something they know that the rest of us don't? Is it something we can all learn? The answer is a resounding yes. They know The Rules of Thinking.

These Rules are the guiding principles that show you how to make wiser decisions, stop procrastinating, know when to compromise, avoid mistakes, find other options, think well with others, stop obsessing about things, keep your brain active, be more creative, and have happy, healthy thoughts. You'll be that person who knows their own mind – in every sense.
