The Thinkery isn’t what it used to be. In the old days, it was sort of a catch-all for my interests. I wrote blog posts about politics and poetry. I facilitated meetups about disaster preparedness and hell (and, no, these were not the same meetup, although that’s not a bad idea).
A few months ago, I decided to bring more clarity to the purpose of The Thinkery. Now, The Thinkery focuses on cultivating three things: thinker skills and traits, cognitive health and performance, and thoughtful living. This is reflected in the blog, the podcast, and our online community.
This leaves out something that I hold dear. I believe that, if God is real, He must be the most important and relevant reality in the universe. Thus, the truth about God is worth pursuing. While The Thinkery fosters the skills, traits, and practices that aid in such a pursuit, I prefer not to blend the two in a direct way.
And now for something not completely different
During the last few months, as The Thinkery’s purpose came into sharper focus, I created a separate, personal brand to concentrate on thoughtful faith: evidence-based belief, discernment between truth and error, and a love of truth. Although I share my personal beliefs, I strive to make people of all beliefs feel at home. I’m not looking for people who share my views; I’m looking for people who share my value for truth.
If this interests you, I invite you to learn more at elizabethwhitworth.com. You will find the same elements: a blog, a podcast, and an online community. Also, I drink the same tea over there. Most of all, you will find the same underlying principle that you will continue to find here in The Thinkery: Life is better when we switch off the brain’s autopilot and live more thoughtfully.
