Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

What do we get when we understand

One of the greatest challenges of our time is forgetfulness. Memory is a precious human quality, but if we spend time memorizing things which are part of the status quo, we miss the opportunity of greater understanding. What do we get when we understand?

Nobody can understand anything unless he or she thinks about it. That much is obvious. But, there can be multiple ways of understanding something. This means it is often a creative process.

Understanding means connecting the pieces of the puzzle of reality. The patterns emerging from your understanding bring sense and meaning to every aspect in your life. Because you challenge the status quo, you become free to think and think differently.

How different?

If understanding implies thinking in new and uncharted waters, you need to be actively creative while you think.

Free thinking and active creativity are what you get when you understand.
