Doing. Creativity is not all about changing the world or pushing boundaries. It’s not centered on breaking the status quo or creating some timeless invention. There are no desperate leaps towards some...
I am always suspicious of one-size-fits-all solutions. They are very easy to sell in a book or a blog post, but they rarely work in the real world. There’s too much variation. That’s a big part of why best practices are stupid.
TED Talks Neuroscientist Michael Merzenich looks at one of the secrets of the brain's incredible power: its ability to actively re-wire itself. He's researching ways to harness the brain's plasticity to enhance our skills and recover lost function.

La neuroplasticidad es la capacidad que tienen nuestros cerebros de formar y reformar redes neuronales a partir de nuestras experiencias, es decir, la habilidad de moldearse con el aprendizaje.
Cuando estamos aprendiendo algo nuevo, se forman redes en nuestro cerebro a partir de neuronas que se comunican entre ellas a través de estructuras que permiten el pase de señales de una neurona a otra, conocidas como sinapsis. Una mejor comunicación entre neuronas está dada por un paso más eficiente de estas señales.
Cada vez que aprendemos o practicamos algo, estas conexiones se forman, o se refuerza la comunicación de conexiones existentes. Antiguamente se creía que las conexiones que se formaban durante nuestro crecimiento quedaban estáticas, pero hoy se sabe que la fuerza de estas conexiones puede variar de acuerdo con el uso o desuso de las mismas. Esta extraordinaria capacidad se conoce como plasticidad sináptica y es un concepto clave en el estudio del aprendizaje y la memoria.
The urgency of slowing down — to find the time and space to think — is nothing new, of course, and wiser souls have always reminded us that the more attention we pay to the moment, the less time and energy we have to place it in some larger context. “Distraction is the only thing that consoles us for our miseries,” the French philosopher Blaise Pascal wrote in the 17th century, “and yet it is itself the greatest of our miseries.” He also famously remarked that all of man’s problems come from his inability to sit quietly in a room alone.
When telegraphs and trains brought in the idea that convenience was more important than content — and speedier means could make up for unimproved ends — Henry David Thoreau reminded us that “the man whose horse trots a mile in a minute does not carry the most important messages.” Even half a century ago, Marshall McLuhan, who came closer than most to seeing what was coming, warned, “When things come at you very fast, naturally you lose touch with yourself.” Thomas Merton struck a chord with millions, by not just noting that “Man was made for the highest activity, which is, in fact, his rest,” but by also acting on it, and stepping out of the rat race and into a Cistercian cloister.
