If you’re one to follow instruction a little too blindly or feel like you don’t have enough control over what’s going on in your life, here are a few tips to get on the right track.
Allen Galbraith has one particularly important tip that should become second nature early in life, particularly in schooling: asking questions.
1) If in doubt – ask a question.
Don’t be afraid to question things. Don’t be afraid to offer a question even though other people in your peer group have not questioned before.
As Allen points out, there is some irony involved in ‘telling’ people how to think for themselves. However, these are some great suggestions for those people who are less confident in taking control or questioning instruction.
