How To Train Your Brain


Recommended Posts




I've never been very good at following the rules.

When I was a little kid, I sort of "discovered" that you could get away with anything so long as you played dumb.

If you got caught, you just said, "I thought it would be OK?"

Of course this only worked for so long.

Once in biology class, we were doing a chemistry experiment.

We had two different liquids, and our teacher said not to mix them under any circumstances.

Which, of course, caused me to mix them just to see what the big deal was.

Nothing really happened except me getting kicked out of class.

Some rules are important.

Basic laws, private property rights, and just common sense.

But some times, it's worth it to try things just to see.

One set of rules is how we think about and operate in the world around us.

We all have a collection of ideas about what we are "supposed to do."

Like order an appetizer, an entree, and then a dessert, in that order.

Nobody would ever think of doing it backwards.

But they all end up in the same place.

One of the problems with us humans is we have a lot of leftover instincts.

One of them makes us sketchy about doing anything that would make us too "different."

We generally try to fit in as best as we can.

Most of us don't wear clothes that are too far off the general trends, for example.

But the flip side of that strategy, of being safely in the middle of the pack, is we end up living lives that are safely in the middle of the pack.

If you do the same stuff everybody else does, you'll get the same stuff everybody else does.

If you want to be above average, you have to ACT above average.

More importantly, you've got to THINK above average.

Most people spend their free time purposely NOT thinking.

Or worse, feeling anxious that they are surrounded by familiar people doing familiar things.

Before you can act differently, you've got to think differently.

And just like anything else, thinking differently requires practice.

How do you practice?
