Excerpts from Thinking Mathematically

The excerpts you can find here make up one of the most powerful lessons you will find here at this blog.  The reason they are being posted is in connection to my current series, Your Daily Recruiting Journal.  It is one of the greatest failures of education today that most who read the following excerpts will have NEVER thought of mathematics this way before.

The word “sad” is simply too small, too weak, not adequate to express the loss we all suffer as a result.  Mathematical thinking, as you will read about it here, is perhaps the single most powerful thing a human brain can be used to do.

Let me express it this way.  Why do you want to build your journal writing skills?  In order to solve problems in your life and work.  You want to solve all problems that hold you back from filling your potential, hitting your goals, and rising to become greater than you have ever been, continuously, between now and when you die.  Your daily journal is the place to invest into your performance, you future and the powers of your mind itself.  So, any guide that empowers you to use your mind better is worth…what?…how much?  What is it worth to you to be able to strengthen your mind’s abilities?

Consider that question the other way round.  How much cost would be too much; what price would be too great to pay in order to improve your mind’s powers, in order to set up the foundation for perpetual performance growth for the rest of your life?  Whatever that price is, the one too high to pay…you won’t be required to pay that price here.  Here, it is free of dollar cost.  It is not free though, because you’ll have to invest time to read, focus and effort to learn and execute.  So, those prices you will have to pay.  But, as you can tell, my promise is that you will reap such infinite rewards you’ll find the price meaningless in comparison.

There is, however, a dollar price I do recommend you invest, too. That is simply the dollar cost of buying the book itself.  Here’s a link for that, if you’re sold: http://www.amazon.com/Thinking-Mathematically-J-Mason/dp/0201102382

Last point.  The series you read here, Your Daily Recruiting Journal, is a living conversation at our LinkedIn discussion group.  You should consider going over there and joining us live!
