Thinking for a change


Dr. John C Maxwell, in his book thinking for a change says the right thought, plus the right people, in the right environment, at the right time, for the right reasons always produces the right results.

Maxwell went on to further explain:

The right thought

Thinking produces ideas, and ideas have incredible power and potential, but every idea begins as a seed thought so you have to nurture and protect it.

What idea(s) are do you have and you’re sleeping on it? It’s time to start building on it.

The right people

When you expose the right idea to the right people great things happen. In their company it blossoms and becomes infused with possibility.

Always stay with the right people at the right time.

The right environment


In the right environment thinking is valued, ideas flow freely. Fresh eyes are welcome, changes are expected, questions are encouraged, egos are checked, ideas stimulate better ideas and thinking generates teamwork.

Find the better environment.

The right time

The emperor Hadrion once said ‘to be right too soon, is to be wrong’ while still stretching stage of an idea, present it without expectations, time frame or rigidly defined goals. Why? Because if you try to implement your ideas too early it may not survive.

The right reason

J.P Morgan, once said a man always has two reasons for doing anything: a good idea and the real motive/reason. Motives matters-and selfish motives disqualify us. God only gets behind ideas that fulfill his purpose and demonstrate his love for others.

Sometimes an idea becomes great when it partners with another idea; other times it excels just as it is,. One thing is certain: as you stretch your thinking, you will discover that your thinking is stretching you.
