I was asked, “How do critical thinking and creative thoughts interact?” Looking over “The Elements of Thought,” I had an “Aha!” moment. Many of these elements interact with our ability to think critically and creatively. Goals are a good example. After all, there is substance the old adage, “Where there is a will, there is a way.”
