    As a strategic thinker, I would argue with @Thomson Dawson's point that we don't always see our gifts. I've known for years that my brain works very strategically and I've used it to my advantage countless times. I will say that I believe strategic thinkers have it easier when it comes to building a business because, as Dawson stated, we cut through the bull and don't worry about the insignificant, extraneous details. This makes life more relaxing and enjoyable while we continue our quest for productivity.

    So @Thomson Dawson, do you think that "intuitive" individuals are closer to become a strategic thinker? I don't think we are losing strategic thinkers but the processes today (in any field) are trying to avoid intuition, they try to parameter any situation... This is killing intuition and creativity inside big systems (not individualy) and then, for me, we are doing something wrong...

    Nicely done with great insights. Awhile back I took a StrengthsFinder assessment. My top 5: Strategic, Ideation, Achiever, Command, Learner. Was helpful in understanding some of my quirkiness. Not sure if it articulated whether or not I am a strategic thinker but was a good drill to gain some insight into what makes me tick. Thanks. much for a great article. All the best on your journey.

    Welcome to beBee @Thomson Dawson... Lord knows the world needs more strategic thinkers... or even people who think.

    @Thomson Dawson This is an excellent read. I got hooked to 'know your why'. I invite you to see my perspective on 'know your why' in my recent blog 'That Noble Soul' - https://www.bebee.com/producer/@anees-zaidi/that-noble-soul. Let me have your esteemed thoughts.

    Brilliant article @Thomson Dawson. I certainly relate to your point on 'what-if' thinking. It's been an important factor on allot of my past projects and has always offered a fresh perspective.
