Brain exercise: a moment for Reflections, Aha!, insights

braintop Ques­tion: what was your most recent Aha! moment? a recent insight? how did it hap­pen?

Why should we spend a minute reflect­ing on it? In the post on The Neu­ro­science of Lead­er­ship and Brain Fit­ness, we quote David Rock and Jef­frey M. Schwartz and say that the Quan­tum Zeno Effect, applied to neu­ro­science, means that “the men­tal act of focus­ing atten­tion sta­bi­lizes the asso­ci­at­ed brain circuits…Over time, pay­ing enough atten­tion to any spe­cif­ic brain con­nec­tion keeps the rel­e­vant cir­cuit­ry open and dynam­i­cal­ly alive…The pow­er is in the focus.”

    In the morn­ing when you wake up and you have the most cozy feel­ing in the world , your cat is keep­ing cud­dling and the end of the bed with you, you look out­side and the sun is rising…and you realise you are com­plete­ly late because you usu­al­ly leave to work before sun­rise.
