Useful thinking is a pragmatic philosophy for dealing with circumstances one cannot change through the conscious adoption of a productive mindset, coined by professional speaker and author Chris Helder.

On this episode of Defence Connect Podcast, Helder joins host Phil Tarrant to explain how a tragic loss triggered the foundation of his book Useful Belief, why this way of thinking has become so valuable to the Australian Defence Force, and how it can be applied to all aspects of life.

He also provides his insights into why ruminating on the negative can lead to worse outcomes, how the useful belief concept can be harnessed to improve leadership, and why journaling can be a useful tool.
