What are some the best critical thinking resources out there that have helped you improve your thinking, writing, and memory?

I can't really advise one sure way that has helped me out. Because what works for me may not work for you. What I can tell you is that you need to find and use what works for you. Some people use flash cards. Some people record themselves. I know that to remember something I want to say or do, I have to write it down somewhere in some form or I'm going to forget and it will not make me very happy. I hope that helps.

I have 3 answers. 1. Read 2. Read 3. Read
I have found that reading ( as much as is practical given daily life) is crucial. Also, adding variety to what you read....so you get different perspective, points of views, scenarios and outcomes you never anticipated will open your mind. Reading is a workout for your brain and the more you do it the more formidable you become as your knowledge base just keeps expanding.
Read some of the classics....and read whatever you enjoy. This will also help you with an additional critical skill....writing. As you read different authors you will get a sense of their enormous skill and how being able to articulate well will help you throughout your life.
Writing: Read ELEMENTS OF STYLE by Strunk and White. Write. Write. And write some more. Remember, sometimes less is more.

Memory: I forgot what I was going to write :)
