The first guy, shy but extraordinarily creative. The second guy, less creative but very vocal in nature.

group brainstorming is a myth
Remember the subconscious? The part of our brain which we have trouble accessing. It’s unbelievable, it has the key to every solution and we all have it.

While there was no question that the attack occurred and that some neighbors ignored cries for help, the portrayal of 38 witnesses as fully aware and unresponsive was erroneous. The article grossly exaggerated the number of witnesses and what they had perceived. None saw the attack in its entirety. Only a few had glimpsed parts of it or recognized the cries for help. Many thought they had heard lovers or drunks quarreling. There were two attacks, not three. And afterward, two people did call the police. A 70-year-old woman ventured out and cradled the dying victim in her arms until they arrived. Ms. Genovese died on the way to a hospital.

#AnIdeaADay Doing nothing, absolutely nothing doesn’t mean that brain stops functioning. In fact the brain waves are seen to be much more active when we are awake and we do nothing.
The brain doesn’t immediately register that the stomach is full, it surprisingly takes whopping 20 minutes for the brain to fully comprehend that it is full.
#AnIdeaADay #RichardWiseman in his book, “59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot” shared how we can even employ Doublethink for productivity.
“You must stand out BUT you must fit in”
“You must follow your dreams AND find a secure job”
“Don’t lie BUT don’t say anything that’s rude”
