    Critical thinking means becoming aware of your thinking process. its a human trait that allows us to step outside what we read or write and ask ourselves. Sometimes our thinking is very abstract and becomes clear only through the process of getting thoughts down in words. As a character in E.M. Fosters Aspects of the Novel said, "How can I tell what I think till I see what I say? did you really write what you meant to, and will it be easily understood by reader? Successful writing forms a relationship with the audience, reaching the reader on a deep level that can be dynamic and motivating. In contrast, when writing falls to meet the audiences expectations, you already know the consequences : they all move on.

    Excellent business writing can be inspiring, and it is important to not lose that sense of inspiration as we deconstruct the process of writing to its elemental components.

    Critical thinking means becoming aware of your thinking process. It's a human trait that allows us to step outside what we read or write and ask ourselves, "Does this really make sense?". "Are there other, perhaps better, ways to explain this idea?".

    Basically, we need to ask ourselves questions relating to what we are going to write and what we have already written. We have to make sure that it makes sense to others as well and evaluate if it's what we are really trying to convey to someone.

    As a habit of mind, critical thinking requires established standards and attention to their use, effective communication, problem solving, and a willingness to acknowledge and address our own tendency for confirmation bias, egocentrism, and sociocentrism.

    Critical thinking can be defined as “self-directed, self-disciplined, self-
    monitored, and self-corrective thinking.” [3] It is the difference between watching

    television in a daze versus analyzing a movie with attention to its use of lighting, camera

    angles, and music to influence the audience. One activity requires very little mental

    effort, while the other requires attention to detail, the ability to compare and contrast,

    and sharp senses to receive all the stimuli. 

    critical thinking requires established standards and attention to their

    use, effective communication, problem solving, and a willingness to acknowledge and

    address our own tendency for confirmation bias, egocentrism, and sociocentrism. We’ll

    use the phrase “habit of mind” because clear, critical thinking is a habit that requires

    effort and persistence.
