THIS BOOK IS BASED ON THE NOTION THAT WE ALL HAVE THE CAPACITY TO succeed, but most of us only use a very small portion of our minds,and therefore of our capacity. In an age when creativity and time are the key commodities, learning how to learn is the key skill and the brain is the key organ. Only if we can learn faster and more effectively will we be able to thrive. Most of us don’t understand the central role our minds have in helping us to perform more effectively: we are simply not taught how to learn or how to apply our learning. While we have discovered more about the brain and how it works in the last decade than we have ever known before, we apply very little of this in our daily working or personal lives. It is possible for everyone to learn faster, work smarter, and be more fulfilled. Power Up Your Mind translates what we know about how the brain works into useful insights for the workplace. It has been written from the conviction that intelligence is multifaceted and not fixed at birth. It draws ideas from the broadest possible range of subject areas, from neuroscience to psychology, motivation theory to accelerated learning, memory to diet.
