Is it nice..?

5 ways to maximise your cognitive potential

Posted in Is it Nice..? by Ade Chong on March 22, 2011

In order to keep your brain making new connections and keeping them active, you need to keep moving on to another challenging activity as soon as you reach the point of mastery in the one you are engaging in. You want to be in a constant state of slight discomfort, struggling to barely achieve whatever it is you are trying to do. – Andrea Kuszewski

Pretty brilliant article by Andrea Kuszewski. She talks about how intelligence can be learnt.

The five primary principles are:

  1. Seek novelty
  2. Challenge yourself
  3. Think creatively
  4. Do things the hard way
  5. Network

Great words to live by. I highly recommend this read.
