The depth of perspective and strength of character is what make one's thinking profound!
Many say superficiality has gone global. The western thinking (psychology) is dominated by quantity and silo, and doesn't reason on quality and holism; and the eastern thinking (philosophy) is too ancient to adapt to the change, with culture quintessential and feudalistic residues co-existing. To change or not to change, are human as race destined to be superficial? There's enough wrong with the business & the world; and enough fractions within specific ideologies, why does superficial thinking cause the short-sighted vision with kind of blindness in understanding things, and how to fix it?
Remove: Conventional thinking as a sole path.
Add: Perspective from right brain: intuition, creativity, innovation -learn a method to do it!

Add: proactive consistent grace-filled interactions no matter what is the situation.
Remove: stereotypical thinking or prejudging others by their physical identity.
Add: listening empathetically to others to connect the minds and hearts.
Remove: Silo thinking of seeing the tree, without forest; or extreme thinking to see only black & white;
Add: Systems thinking as the ability to mentally connect all of the different components of a given problem according to their actual working patterns in order to discover the optimal solution to the problem holistically. This is how we transform the complex into simple, define specific solutions, stimulate commitment, and achieve better results.
The depth of perspective and strength of character is what we need today to deepen the mind, not more of the same old paradigm. We can do better. To overcome the common challenges and advance human race, we have to really dig beneath the superficial layer, see around the corner and transcend the interdisciplinary knowledge, to get to the heart of the matter; not just watch, but perceive; not just listen to what’s been said, but pay more attention to not being said; be critical and creative at the same time, with good intention for problem solving and collective humankind progress.
