  1. Emo­tion is the sys­tem that tells us how impor­tant some­thing is. Atten­tion focuses us on the impor­tant and away from the unim­por­tant things. Cog­ni­tion tells us what to do about it. Cog­ni­tive skills are what­ever it takes to do those things.” (25 Highlighters)
  2. Work­ing mem­ory is the type of mem­ory that allows us to both hold infor­ma­tion in mind and work on it as needed.” (22 Highlighters)
  3. First, the more a net­work of neu­rons is acti­vated (i.e., the more often the neu­rons fire together), the stronger the con­nec­tions become.” (21 Highlighters)
  4. Since human atten­tion is lim­ited, try­ing to divide it between too many tasks nec­es­sar­ily results in per­for­mance errors.” (17 Highlighters)
  5. Con­trol­ling and man­ag­ing emo­tion (includ­ing stress and anger) is cru­cial for per­form­ing suc­cess­fully in any­thing.” (17 Highlighters)
