Decision Making Process and Critical Thinking Skills

Critical Thinking Skills
Einstein – Critical Thinking

Which is more important? The Decision Making Process or Critical Thinking Skills? Yesterday my post focused on the Decision Making Process...the steps…the importance of the very first decision in the process deciding “do I have a need”? And if you get this first decision wrong then obviously you have made a bad decision on the entire subject. For example, if you are making a decision as to whether you may need professionals to help you with a specific area of need and you decide that you don’t have a need in that area, when in fact you obviously do have a need, then you have ignored the need, not understood the potential consequences of ignoring the need, or you decide that you will take the risk and the consequences which typically is an irresponsible conclusion.

Just Look Up The Answers
Just Look Up The Answers

I am sure that none of my readers want to consider themselves irresponsible.  Probably the most recurring conclusion is that…yes, I have the need but cannot afford to do anything about it. If this is the case then your income is not at the right levels and that is certainly an issue. You need to be talking with a competent person who can help you earn more money!

From Wikipedia on Critical Thinking

Critical thinking is an important component of most professions. It is a part of formal education and is increasingly significant as students progress through university to graduate education,

Decision Making Process

I see many very intelligent professionals make incorrect decisions on the first decision question in the decision process…“do I have a need?”  This specifically applies in the case of the decision on “do I need the services of a financial advisor, a CPA, a law firm, a business consultant or trainer, an insurance broker,  or a doctor”. Much of my life has been devoted to working with responsible people who realize that their lives can be much better if they elect to select and work with professionals in these fields. In building my practice as a financial advisor I found more than (300) people who agreed that it would be in their best interests to work with a professional financial advisor and respected company.

I consider that your decisions on these key issues really decide what level of financial independence you will ever achieve.RealLife I would encourage you as professionals and good business managers to rethink your decisions on key needs to accomplish financial independence and ask yourself…do I really need that professional or am I just kidding myself that I can do it myself? I assure you my friend if you have decided that you are going to do all of your professional jobs yourself, you will never have the opportunity to achieve financial independence. There is a thin line between mediocrity and brilliance…the same for excellent success and just getting by. Some describe it as an “edge”. What do you prefer for you and your family? Tomorrow’s post…a review of key professionals that I know can help you tremendously! Sometimes you may not know the right solutions for your needs.

How to Control the Fear of Starting a Small Business

Fear of Starting
How To Overcome Fear

By Aaron Broverman  May 14, 2013

Even though an average of 130,000 businesses start-up in Canada every year, there are even more Canadians who’d like to start their own business, but various fears and trepidations are holding them back. According to a 2011 Royal Bank of Canada poll, one-third of Canadians (32%) would like to start their own business. In contrast, in the report “Perspectives on Small Business in Canada” by The Canadian Federation of Independent Business, 86% of Canadians disagreed with the statement, “Starting a small business is easy.” Reasons people gave for being hesitant to start their own business include lack of money, (57%) the amount of risk involved, (40%) uncertainty of the success of the business, (36%) and a lack of skills and knowledge (29%).

Identity Theft – Not Even Chief Justice Roberts Can Escape ID Fraud

Not Even John Roberts Can Escape Credit-Card Fraud

It’s possible that someone in Kentucky has been buying stuff with John Roberts’s credit card.

The Supreme Court’s chief justice has been traipsing around Washington, D.C., bemoaning to metro-area counter-workers that his credit-card info has been stolen, and that he now has to use cash.

First, it was a Starbucks barista, where Roberts stopped for coffee in suburban Maryland on Tuesday, before he heard arguments on California’s Prop. 8 gay-marriage ban. Roberts typically uses a card, but a Starbucks employee told The Washington Post that Roberts, this time mentioned the apparent identity theft, after paying cash….

If the Chief Justice Can Be an Identity Theft Victim, Is Anyone Safe?

by Matt Brownell, Mar 29th 2013

Confirmation Hearings Begin In The Senate For John Roberts

No one is safe from identity theft — not even John Roberts, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

On the morning that the Supreme Court was scheduled to hear arguments about gay marriage, Roberts was overheard telling a barista at his local Starbucks that he would have to pay cash for his coffee, as his credit card information had been stolen. The Associated Press spoke to a Supreme Court spokesperson, who confirmed that someone got hold of one of the Chief Justice’s credit card account numbers. Apparently that meant that Roberts had to use cash while he waited for a new card from the bank.

Supreme Court Justices: They’re just like us!

Roberts isn’t the first high-profile Washington figure to become the victim of identity theft lately — earlier this month, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and the director of the FBI all had their credit reports stolen and posted to a Russian website. Celebrities including Beyonce Knowles were also affected……

Read the full story:

——————————————————————————-

It is important that Americans understand how to deal with identity theft issues most effectively.  It is very important to have as many of your key identification numbers monitored for activity as possible. You need to know as quickly as possible if your and that of your spouse…and especially your children…is being violated. Then you need to have the assurance of professional investigators, who understand the ways of correcting your problems, take charge of restoring your identity as quickly as possible. Be very cautious of any identity theft program that requires that you restore your own identity, no matter how much reimbursement, as restoration can take years even if you know what you are doing.

12 million people were victims of identity theft in 2012. Don’t wait until it happens to you. Get Peace of Mind today. Get protection before the event can happen and you are covered for restoration. Restoration coverage after it happens is a different situation. Be prepared for identity theft!

Critical Thinking! Be Honest With Yourself! How Long Before You Will Need…?

Critical Thinking
Critical Thinking
Image: www.apologetics315.com

 

For those who read this post they will have a serious interest in…

  1. achieving financial independence
  2. accumulating more money and assets than you will need during your lifetime
  3. to accomplish your goals intelligently using the very best decisions and advice
  4. by protecting you and your loved ones for maximum security
  5. by protecting yourself from loss of your personal data and identity.

This post is about how I can help you achieve any and all of these goals. Thanks for stopping by! I believe that there is at least 1% of the population who are interested in achieving financial independence and I am searching to find them. Are you one of the 1%? Do you know someone who is?  If so, why not take this information seriously, read and listen carefully with honest critical thinking, and contact me  to let me know you are interested. Together we can do this! I can show you how to accomplish your goals! Now to the fundamental questions that will be your motivations and your WHY!  It is essential that you be extremely honest with yourself in answering each question below.  If you get a YES answer to any one of the questions then you owe it to yourself to do something about it. How long have you known the answer was YES to any question and kicked the can down the road? Delayed? Procrastinated? Put off?  Why would you procrastinate  a day longer if you had extremely cost-effective, proven, unmatched solutions to begin solving each one today? And someone standing ready to help you achieve them? These are real solutions that can pay you back more than you invest in them. Here are your questions my friend…

Critical Thinking! Be Honest With Yourself! How Long Before You Will Need…?

  • More income and assets than you have right now?

  • To hire an attorney for any purpose?

  • Someone to help you recover your identity and assets?

Let’s begin with your legal rights!  If we don’t know your legal rights – you don’t have any! Have your legal rights ever been challenged? Have you ever wished that you had a lawyer that you could call on but you chose not to do so? Why? Cost? Didn’t know one? Trust? Did it yourself?   And next…Identity Theft

Identity Theft in 2012 was for the 12th year the highest incidence of crime reported to the FTC and is increasing in frequency.  Identity Theft occurs in more than five major areas, not just on bank instruments and credit cards. It also occurs on Social Security numbers and especially income tax filing, Medicare and medical records with your insurance ID numbers, with driver’s license numbers, with pure theft of someone’s name and identification, and on the internet by data theft. Banks do not monitor all of these numbers and data possibilities so they cannot protect you for everything as is mistakenly thought. If you think your bank ID theft protection has you covered for all options you really need to investigate that much deeper. That is the tip of the iceberg. We’re told to monitor our credit, to protect ourselves from identity theft. But who knew to apply that same wisdom to our offspring? Last year the number of ID theft victims reached 12.6 million, up 1 million from the previous year, according to a Javelin Strategy and Research Identity Fraud Report released Feb. 20, 2013. According to the AllClear ID 2012 Child Identity Theft Report, about one in every 40 households with young children is being affected.  Does your ID theft protection cover your children? It should as they are extreme targets especially their social security numbers. Would you like to have a monthly ID protection plan for you, your partner and your children, at one of the lowest costs in the industry, that provides for monitoring of all of your five identity risk data areas, and includes restoration by licensed investigators? You would never be able to access all of your private data around the world to restore your identity, nor could you afford the time from work or the expenses, however this solution takes care of that for you.

Now on the business side–let’s talk about increasing your income and assets. This could be an immediate need for you now or it could be a need that you have some time to work on! Can you relate to the message below? If so…here is a great solution for you to build financial independence and make any days of the week vacation if you like! It’s really sad that most people live their lives in quiet desperation looking forward to the weekend so they can own their own lives for two days….

Based on your background, experiences, education and goals we can discuss on a complimentary basis appropriate options that could be appealing to you that would help you achieve your goals. For more information please send me an email on dannorris42@gmail.com or call me on 407-749-9395.

And now Dennis Michael Lynch, a filmmaker on Sean Hannity’s show for an hour telling the country in great detail what the greatest threat is to our country…terrorists coming across the Mexican border…how very scary…let’s all see this man’s film…he is so concerned that the Senate passed their Bill on Immigration this week…his film which is showing across the country and exposes this risk…and not even being addressed by the gang of eight Senators involved…the film is called “The Cost of Amnesty”.

Solutions To America’s Unemployment Crisis

God Bless america
United States

Yes, there are solutions to America’s Unemployment Crisis! And it is up to you and I to provide them until we can find leadership that is truly interested in the welfare and livelihood of the American people.

While driving I truly enjoy listening to a variety of smart, conservative, logical talk show hosts, both local and national. Today while driving to my local places of business I heard some startling figures that point to the real state of our nation. The first was that we are at the lowest number of employed workers in many years. So many people have given up on finding jobs and are no longer counted in the work force…and that it actually benefits the employment numbers game. The second number that I heard was that “real unemployment” is close to 24% when counting everyone that would really like to be working. The third number that was so disappointing is that the Average American family’s wages in 2012 was $31,000 and less than previous years.

I am sure that many of you agree with me that the mainstream media and this administration don’t even want to talk about these numbers…and that is a shame…because you and I have to live with them. Somehow we have to find a way to overcome the bureaucratic government takeover of private sector jobs, reduce regulations, implement a simple tax system such as The Fair Tax, allow the energy sector to build pipelines and mine coal as much
as we can and as much as we need.  Why should we be sending our precious American dollars for gasoline and oil to the far east??? This money could be much better spent at home.

I don’t know about you however I am as active as I can be with my government leaders, letting them know how strongly I feel about every key issue.

I really enjoyed Brian Tracy’s video below…he nailed our situation and offers sound solutions…are you also concerned about our situation and what to do about it? Brian also talks about the 80/20 rule where 20% of the population always continue to reinvent themselves by learning new skills…he is singing in my choir as that is exactly what I am promoting with you.

Increasing Your Income 1000% Formula

Brian Tracy


Let’s call on our leaders to begin tackling the real issues of this country, not just the political and social issues that bring in votes and political power.

Check out this opportunity for yourself…

Personally I have discovered excellent small business, work from home, self-employment opportunities that are at the top of the list in the nation and this one not just the nation but in the world.  In this opportunity individuals earning a few hundred dollars a month and by investing a few hundred dollars a month…are creating six and seven figure annual incomes…and helping others in the process…I encourage you to check this opportunity out very thoroughly…

Identity Theft – 6 Reasons To Have The Right Protection With Restoration

Today’s topic is about protecting your personal identity, your assets, your personal identification data and especially that of your partner and children!

Identity Theft – 6 Reasons To Have The Right Protection With Restoration

ID Theft
Identity Theft

Identity Theft in 2012 was for the 12th year the highest incidence of crime reported to the FTC and increasing in frequency.  Identity Theft occurs in more than five major areas, not just on bank instruments and credit cards. It also occurs on Social Security numbers and especially income tax filing, Medicare and medical records with your insurance ID numbers, with driver’s license numbers, with pure theft of someone’s name and identification, and on the internet by data theft. Banks do not monitor all of these numbers and data possibilities so they cannot protect you for everything as is mistakenly thought.

We’re told to monitor our credit, to protect ourselves from identity theft. But who knew to apply that same wisdom to our offspring? Last year the number of identity theft victims reached 12.6 million, up 1 million from the previous year, according to a Javelin Strategy and Research Identity Fraud Report released Feb. 20, 2013.

According to the AllClear ID 2012 Child Identity Theft Report, about one in every 40 households with young children is being affected.

ID Theft of Children
Identity Theft of Children

Let me share the top 6 reasons in my opinion that each of us that is truly interested in protecting our assets and data,  needs the best in identity theft protection and restoration:

1.   There is virtually no way to stop identity theft. You can only monitor the most relevent data and financial activities to take action as quickly as possible to minimize the adverse consequences.

2.   As a regular citizen you do not have the time nor access to all of the places in the world where your financial and identification data is being shared.

3. To monitor all of your necessary data requires an extensive system of international data monitoring using licensed investigators to access and monitor your transactional data anywhere in the world. You do  not have this capability and personally, I know of only one company in the world that does this.

5.   In the event that your identity is stolen, it is highly recommended to employ licensed investigators with limited powers of attorney to analyze, access, identify the guilty, and restore your identity to its original status. It usually takes 300-700 man hours to restore someone’s identity when it has been severely damaged.

6   It is my opinion that if you must do the identity restoration yourself, requiring typically 300-700 man hours of effort, that you will need to take significant time off from your work to try to accomplish the complex tasks. If you are being reimbursed by an insurance policy to do the  work yourself there will be questions as to what is to be reimbursed and the money costs to do so will come out of your pocket first.   Unless you can enlist expert investigators, it is doubtful that you can access all your data to determine the issues.

Once identity theft occurs to an individual their lives can be essentially shut-down financially. It is very wise to consider an economical identity theft guard program with restoration to protect yourself.

The above information provides valuable background and rationale as to why you should protect yourself and family members with a good identity theft protection solution.

I encourage you evaluate alternatives on the market.

It is amazing where we must go now to get the best news of the day…tonight I went to www.Popurls.com and to www.alltop.com which are known in the blogging industry as two of the top blogging sites to provide the very best and most accurate  news reporting.  I highly recommend these sites to you in case you would like to do a 10 minute scan of all their topics and select what is the most interesting for you to read!

There are many great sources of news nowadays…and with the departure of the major tv and newspaper media to align with political agendas rather than providing us with the real objective news…we now have immediate and accurate news from a wonderful variety of sources. Personally I enjoy a variety of fair and balanced tv news, many talk show hosts, high quality blogs, and selected internet major media sources like Forbes and Entrepreneur and the like.  Here are the most interesting stories in my opinion for today…

What Should I Do About My Career?

This is about seeking a career that you love!

Positive Motivational Quotes About Work

Johnny Carson Never continue in a job you don’t enjoy. If you’re happy in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined.

Dale Carnegie Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all you heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.

Bobby Unser Desire! That’s the one secret of every man’s career. Not education. Not being born with hidden talents. Desire.

Mark Twain Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Napoleon Hill When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.

Brian Tracy Only undertake what you can do in an excellent fashion. There are no prizes for average performance.

Jack Welch We know where most of the creativity, the innovation, the stuff that drives productivity lies – in the minds of those closest to the work.

Harland Sanders You got to like your work. You have got to like what you are doing, you have got to be doing something worthwhile so you can like it – because it is worthwhile, that it makes a difference, don’t you see?

Napoleon Hill Everyone enjoys doing the kind of work for which he is best suited.

Earl Nightingale The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!

Make a Choice
Your Choice To Be Happy

Ok now…you have just enjoyed the wisdom of some of the most respected leaders and motivators of our society! Are you  very happy in your employment today? ..The average “job” in the U.S. lasts 2.7 years…and as pointed out above by Earl Nightingale “Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!”

Now I think it is a very fair question to ask…what are you going to do with the rest of your life when your current “job” terminates or you decide to change “jobs”?. Do you have a career that “you own and that you can rely upon for employment and income security”? I encourage you to consider your current enjoyment level with your employment and to consider adjustments that would lead to more job and career satisfaction!

—————————————————————————-

I know of excellent solutions for you to consider both part-time and full time…not only to help you feel more secure, protected, capable of making better decisions and improving your life, however to also offer you income options with multiple streams of income for now and to two generations of your family.
