5 ways to think critically

Last week I wrote about 5 roadblocks to critical thinking. Here are five things that will help you to think critically.
  1. Work on controlling your emotions and get yourself 'out of the situation' so that you can think clearly instead of emotionally. 
  2. Always ask the question, "How do I/they/she/he/we know that?"
  3. Make decisions to serve others and not to protect yourself or your interest!
  4. Always know and understand your context before copying someone or applying something you learnt from others. 
  5. Be willing to learn and relearn! 
What would you add to this list?
