This week’s book review is Smart Thinking by Art Markman, PHD.
Smart Thinking explores three essential keys to solving problems, innovating and getting things done. Basically, Smart Thinking requires developing Smart Habits to acquire High Quality Knowledge and to apply your knowledge to achieve your goals. A Smart Habit is the repetition of a desired behavior until it becomes an engrained habit. High Quality Knowledge is accurate and tested knowledge without gaps or inaccuracies.
My takeaway from this book is that I need to structure all my presentations using the Role of 3. And, I need to be much more intentional when I am learning to ensure that I set aside some time immediately after meetings, learning, reading, etc. to summarize what I have learned and identify any gaps in the learning that need to be further investigated.
