“Iterations”???

Why have I chosen “Iterations” as the name of this blog?

In brief, because I believe thinking must be an iterative activity.

To be iterative requires two things: repetition, and adaptation.

Good thinkers do it more than once. One doesn’t just think today, or when one is in school, or when the test is being given. You think about the questions that matter over and over.

Good thinkers also change. They don’t just change their minds, though. They change the way they think. As they acquire more knowledge and improve their understanding, they answer questions differently. They ask different questions. They adapt as they repeat.

They iterate.

Or at least they should.
