Powering up your mind

For far too long, these three key stages have been viewed in isolation when they need to be taken together. If you can do all three things well, then you will truly have powered up your mind.

This book will help you to be ready, to go out and learn with confidence, and to be steady when it comes to putting your learning into practice. It will always come back to some common-sense questions: So what? What do I need to know about this? Does it work? How can I apply it in my life? How will it help me to be more successful at work and in my personal life?

To help you see how this can be applied, I have included direct personal observations from a number of business leaders whom I interviewed specially for this book. These men and women, from a wide variety of sectors, are already leading their organizations in ways that clearly seek to get the best out of their people's minds.

There are also activities, facts, questions, quotations, pictures, and a range of other stimuli to engage you in an active dialog.

You do not need to be a brain scientist or a lover of business books to enjoy, understand, and apply these ideas. Neither do you have to become a disciple of any one philosophy to reap benefit from the insights contained here. Power Up Your Mind is a user's guide for busy business people to the way their minds work. You will find in it a brief description of the most important techniques and the key research findings that will enable you to be smarter in the way you work and live. You will also find original thoughts and ideas that appear nowhere else.

Putting some of these simple suggestions into practice will help you realize your potential and achieve the personal success that you deserve. Sometimes it may be helpful to rely on your instincts and just try things, rather than getting bogged down in explanations. "Why," as the Dodo said in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, "the best way to explain it is to do it."

Our day-to-day incessant busyness too much to do and not enough time; the pressure to produce and check off items on our to-do list by each day’s end seems to decide the direction and quality of our existence for us.
