The get smarter guide
In the Guardian there is an interesting article on everyday optimization of your brain – off course it comes with a “how to guide”. But the Tuesday advice “Select unfamiliar words from the dictionary and work them into conversations” should be no new exercise for people working within strategy and planning.
Here is the article:
The week based “how to”:
Brush your teeth with your 'wrong' hand and take a shower with your eyes closed.
Do the crossword or Sudoku puzzle in your Sunday paper and take a brisk walk.
Have oily fish for dinner, and either cycle, walk or take the bus into work.
Select unfamiliar words from the dictionary and work them into conversations.
Go to yoga, Pilates or a meditation class, and talk to someone you don't know.
Take a different route to work; watch Countdown or Brainteaser.
Avoid caffeine or alcohol; memorise your shopping list.
