Going Spartan is a catchphrase which means, in a nutshell, 'whipping oneself into shape not only to do ones best, but to actually succeed in doing the best possible as failure is not an option!' I apply this 'do or die' mentality to my critical thinking skills, but this begs the question, what is critical thinking and how does someone who may not be trained in critical methods of analysis go about learning how to think critically? This video sums it up nicely. Have a good one, and remember, if you get a headache take an aspirin and get good rest. Also, eat lots of fruit.
