"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Here is a link to a simple audit for you to rate your own brainpower.

It was designed by Dr Eric Bienstock who is Vice-Principal of the School of Thinking, a brainchild of creativity guru from Down Under, Michael Hewitt-Gleeson, in New York.

From what I have understood, it is not a scientific test. It’s just an audit to help you take stock of your thinking. That’s all!

To paraphrase, a trained thinker can direct his or her thinking and use it in a deliberate manner to produce an intended result.

To a trained and skilled thinker, thinking is a practical tool that can be used at will. This ability to use ‘thinking as a skill’ is the sort of thinking ability that is required to get things DONE.
