Why It Matters

The single most important determinant of your success and happiness in life is the quality of your thinking. You can decide that you already think better than everyone else and don't need to improve anything; or, you can take advantage of this opportunity to cultivate your mind to its full potential. The choice is yours: choose wisely.
