Most people don’t think.

Most people don’t think. If you stand back objectively and watch them, you’ll see that they’re not thinking. If they were, they wouldn’t approach their lives the way they do.

Sometimes the lack of thought is obvious; drinking, then driving. Other times it’s far more subtle; staying up late to watch a movie rather than getting adequate sleep.

It’s easier to observe in other people, but when we’re able to notice the behaviour in ourselves, we can make change happen.

About the author 

Valerie Francis

Valerie Francis is a bestselling author, literary editor, and podcaster with a passion for stories by, for and about women.

Each month, Valerie recommends books from literature’s best female authors. Selections come from every genre because women write, and read, in every genre. The Women’s Fiction category offers up some terrific novels, but these days there’s a strong female presence in thriller, horror, crime, and other genres traditionally dominated by male writers. No matter what the publishing companies may think, in the 21st Century, Women’s Fiction is whatever we want it to be.
