Not The Same Old Garden Path - How We Can Literally Think Differently - TanveerNaseer.com | Healthy Minds, Bodies and Lives | Scoop.it
Best-selling author William A. Donius shares what neuroscience has revealed about how we can learn to literally think differently to be more innovative.

 

The process of using the non-dominant hand, considering a question and allowing an answer to flow forth from that hand without consciously thinking about it, is in effect, walking yourself down a new garden path – a truly amazing experience.

Free Your Mind's insight:

Neuroplasticity has proven that we can really re-train our brains for just about everything.  Given the right amount of effort and time you really can train yourself to react differently and be happier.  It's worth trying!

John Michel's curator insight, July 3, 2013 10:37 PM

As we age, neuroscientists tell us, our thoughts and patterns become more ingrained. The way our brains process, sort and ultimately respond to questions is akin to taking the same path through the garden over and over. We get to know the path very well, and it becomes familiar to us. As long as the problems we face are familiar, so are our approaches to solving these problems. We are in our intellectual “comfort zones.”

Deborah Long's curator insight, July 6, 2013 8:57 PM

Drawing on both sides of the brain particularly the non dominant side opens one to new experiences and ways of thinking.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's comment, July 11, 2013 1:20 PM
Breaking through our patterned thinking is essential to adaptive and agile learning, esp. when we don't know what we don't know." Getting out of that comfort zone is a challenge, books like this help.
