This month’s Rock.Paper.Scissors newsletter is a review of John Medina’s wonderful Brain Rules book. John does a great job of inspiring us to rethink cubicles and classrooms.
Check out the entire e-newsletter here and/or see below for resources related to how to have our boardrooms and businesses working in sync with how our brains actually work (instead of working against how our brains work, which is how cubicles and classrooms are typically designed today).
John’s book outlines 12 principles for how the brains work. I’ve taken some of those principles and matched them with resources for you.
- Check out John’s book here: Brain Rules; 12 principles for Surviving & Thriving at Work, Home & School.
- Regarding John’s Brain Rules exercise principle, see this infographic for how sitting is killing us
- I’ve bookmarked a bunch of brain-based learning resources in my Delicious account; access them here.
- Regarding John’s Brain Rules stress principle, read a blog post I wrote about stress called Learning can be stressful; throwing learning to the dogs
- Check out a blog post I wrote about getting attention (another of John’s brain principles) called Looking for inspiration? Try an add (especially these unusual ones from Fast Company)
- In terms of exploration, another Brain Rules principle, why not explore a variety of ways to soothe your brain & meditate via Deepak Chopra’s online meditation program?
Check these out, your brain will love you for it.
