One of our biggest problems in life is that our thinking is almost entirely automatic. We would never pull out onto a freeway and let go of the steering wheel, but that is just what we do with our thinking after we wake up. We almost never question how we come to the conclusions we make, and we rarely doubt them because we usually aren't even aware of what thoughts have gone into them.
Mental Mechanics explains how we think, how we learn and how we process the information we gather.
We are only taught “rules” for processing two kinds of information, math and language. We are not taught rules for handling the information we use in emotions, needs, wants, values, self-esteem, relationships, parenting, or work. We teach ourselves and obviously don’t do a good job.
Mental Mechanics lays out really good rules to help us process our “data” in those aspects of our lives.
More accurate thinking leads to significantly lower negativity and significantly better decisions.
