    How to think for yourself

    10 Tips on How To Think For Yourself
    I saw this on LifeHacker, via Life is a Journal. They’re pretty cutesy with a side order of cheese, but they’re very true. I also think they’re great tips for any future or current journalist. I know I’m guilty of not following some of these at different times. These are especially helpful when being swamped with the countless press releases from different companies.

    Check out the first few and then click the link for more…

    1) If in doubt - ask a question.
    Don’t be afraid to question things. Don’t be afraid to offer a question even though other people in your peer group have not questioned before.

    2) Place experience over authority.
    If one reflects upon what the authority figure is conveying to you, does it pan out with your real life experience? For example, if someone tells you that all red heads are moody - have you experienced this in your life?

    3) Understand People.
    Does the person communicating with you have an agenda that might be influencing what they are telling you? What is motivating this person? Why do you think they think this way?
