Learning how to think and have good conversations are two skills you can and should improve.
They’re also related because thinking is relational. Learn how to think and you’ll improve your conversations. Learn how to converse and you’ll improve you thinking. Do both and you’ll make the world a better place.
To get you started, @joshuapsteele has shared advice from two worthy guides.
- Advice from Alan Jacob’s book, How to Think
- Advice from Morton Adler’s book, How to Speak, How to Listen
Read through these summaries, then study the books. Just don’t try to learn everything at once. You’ll get overwhelmed and quit. Instead, just pick one thing and start putting it into practice. When you’re doing better, come back and try another.
