Systematic approaches to thinking more clearly
Having a systematic step-by-step process for thinking about certain tasks can be particularly useful so that everything is done as efficiently as possible.
For example, the DANCE system is one of many tools for solving problems.
D – Define and clarify what the problem really is (sometimes it is not initially clear). What are your goals?
A – Think of a range of alternative ways of solving the problem.
N – Narrow down the range of possible solutions to leave the best.
C – Choose the ideal solution and check what the consequences might be.
E – Effect action using the best solution.
Here is a checklist to use when making judgments about things that you hear, see and experience.
- Who is speaking or writing?
- What is their point of view or perspective?
- What ideas and information are presented and how were they obtained?
- Are there unsupported assertions?
- Are reasons or evidence provided?
- Are the reasons and evidence given relevant?
- Is the method used to find the evidence sound?
- Is the evidence correct or valid?
- What assumptions have been made?
- What is fact and what is opinion?
- What are the implicit and explicit values?
- Are there unreasonable generalisations?
- What has been omitted?
- How was the conclusion reached?
- Is the conclusion reasonable?
- What other perspectives or points of view could there be?
