Good thinking wasn’t what we thought when one of the teens deliberately touched the side of the metal fire pit at summer camp and burned himself. It was more like, what were you thinking? Fire is hot. The look on his face was one of pure shock. Actually, that was the look on all of our faces. For some reason the thought never occurred to him that fire burns things, especially skin. How many times have you had a similar situation? You know… that awkward moment when you reach out to do something and the consequences of your actions never cross your mind. Then you wonder why you didn’t think it through. Let’s face it. Good thinking is essential to a successful life but it doesn’t always come easy, does it? We get distracted, self-motivated or focused on the wrong thing.
