Clarifying your thoughts is a process, and it’s one that’s imperfect, happens in stages, and adapts over time. Thinking clearly comes from setting out your thinking step by step and in a clearly explicit and straightforward way. It also involves you taking a step back. This allows you to look at the result, and seek to redress any limitations that you find. 

When you slow down your thinking and carefully attend to your thoughts. Only then can you start to think clearly.

When you know what is on your mind, it’s important to work out what needs your attention. Try to spell out why you believe your thought is important or true.

Consider:

  1. Why a reasonable person should accept your thought
  2. What does and does not follow your thought once it has been accepted

Be clear about what you are dealing with and the relevant assumptions that your reasoning is relying on. 

Engage with other people’s perspectives that may be different from your own. This can help you to think differently and accept that other people have their own ways of thinking. 

Don’t be afraid to ask for help with your thoughts, and don’t be afraid to offer your thoughts when you can. Doing so can help you to become a great communicator who doesn’t always have to be right.
