Update: Got Brain? Investing in Our Most Precious Asset in 2013

Time for Sharp­Brains’ Decem­ber 2012 eNewslet­ter, fea­tur­ing the for­ward-look­ing arti­cle Got Brain? Invest­ing in Our Most Pre­cious Asset in 2013: “Open a week­end New York Times or Wall Street Jour­nal and you’ll find a whole sec­tion with detailed infor­ma­tion and advice for indi­vid­u­als look­ing to invest wise­ly. What you will not find, how­ever, is com­pa­ra­ble infor­ma­tion and advice for invest­ing in your most impor­tant asset of all: your brain. Pre­cisely because it (usu­ally) does its job so smooth­ly and effec­tively, it’s all too easy to for­get that your brain is there and that it needs to be invest­ed in just as with any­thing else we val­ue and want to con­tinue reap­ing ben­e­fits from. And with more than 2 bil­lion peo­ple world­wide cur­rently suf­fer­ing from brain-based health and pro­duc­tiv­ity chal­lenges with a result­ing glob­al eco­nomic bur­den of more than $2 tril­lion, it’s also an issue of some impor­tance.” Click to keep read­ing.
