If you’re familiar at all with John Maxwell, you know the secret ingredient to his leadership and success is the time he takes to think. That’s why we’re excited to bring you this two-part series on practices that can either boost or bust your thinking.

Thoughts and ideas are fragile in the beginning, and they can only reach their full potential in a healthy environment. In this episode, John talks about five thought busters that can harm your thought life.

Mark and Richard then expand on the discussion by sharing their own strategies for maintaining a healthy thought environment and how implementing those strategies has developed their leadership capabilities.

 In next week’s episode, we’ll pick the discussion back up with nine thought boosters that will maximize your ability to think creativity and critically so you get the most out of your think time.

Our BONUS resource for this series is the Thought Boosters Worksheet, which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching. You can download the worksheet by visiting MaxwellPodcast.com/boosters and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”
