Why we need to proof-think

I’m sure we are all aware of the concept of proof reading. Looking back on what you’ve written to check it makes sense and you conveyed the message across to the reader. Well, this is why we should all be proof-thinking on the big decisions we make.

What is it?

Proof-thinking is a simple concept of looking back on what we have done in the past but not in a depressing way. Instead, looking back to make sure we are conscious of the decision and the effects it had.

How does it benefit us?

By looking back on the past decisions we made, we are able to learn and grow from them. If you made a bad decision. Why did you make it? How did it impact you? What could you have done better? What can you learn from it? All these questions you should be asking yourself after making a decision. This method will increase the chances of not making the same mistake twice.

As Albert Einstein once said. “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
