In this article, you do not learn how to learn how to quickly multiply ten-digit number, or remember the contents of the book, or to improve their performance in the test for IQ. The mind of man is not given for it. We need him to make the right decisions needed to survive and prosper in this world full of obstacles and threats.
Intelligent man distinguishes the ability to make the right decisions. Many famous people seem fortunate. But in reality, they know how to choose the right direction, sometimes not obvious to others. The right decision – is the work of the brain, associated primarily with the processing of vast amounts of information from various sources – personal experience, books, conversations with other people, and others.
I’ve highlighted some important techniques that help make the right decisions and achieve maximum results in the circumstances.
1. The feeling of the moment
Try to notice everything that happens around. Come out, at least temporarily, from his inner universe and soberly assess the situation. What do the people around you, what they lack, what they pay attention. View news and special editions in the industry, attend various events. Watch for trends and innovations. Be alert to interesting thoughts.
With 16 years Henry Ford was keen on the idea of creating a comfortable and reliable machines for agriculture. But he noticed that a lot more people interested in transportation where you can travel. As a result, a whole industry was born mechanical engineering, and Ford became a millionaire.
2. Trust your instincts
The work of our brain is still more puzzles than answers. Logical rules are good for testing ideas, critical attitude to the thoughts of others. But for the generation of new ideas are not applicable. If the situation seems hopeless within the existing set of rules and restrictions, certainly, there is a coup, which does not follow from the considered data set. Such a decision comes from above (or from).
Probability of occurrence of an original idea depends on the amount of information “scrolling” in our head. And assemble it in a large volume allows the execution of the first paragraph.
Until Henry Ford was believed that the machine should work on the steam motion. The internal combustion engine has already been invented, but anyone and had never occurred to install it in the car. When Ford was born the idea and he shared it with others, he became convinced of the absurdity of such a decision. But Ford has trusted his instinct and created a cheap and reliable car.
3. The critical attitude to their own and other people’s thoughts
Around us, a sea of information, important and unimportant. We live in a world of excess goods and services and, therefore, the representatives of all types of businesses are trying to introduce into our minds the idea that without their product life, if possible, it is dark and hopeless. Discarded husks advertising, got information from a beautiful wrap and critically check whether it has anything really worthwhile. Look for important communication and quality. Analyze whether you need these or other products, whether you get them real benefits.
Critically be true to their own ideas and “inspiration” (see second paragraph). We value them more than other people’s thoughts, so any criticism (by or inside) perceived painful. It is best to record a new idea and set aside. After a few days it will cease to be so dear and you will see its flaws, can refine and bring to perfection.
4. In a healthy body – a clear mind
Do not believe in cures that improve mental abilities. Yes, all kinds of energy, nootropics and other “magic bullets” mind-altering and sometimes give a good result. But constantly fueled by brain chemistry soon gets tired, he needs larger and larger doses.
Normal brain function is possible only in a healthy body. Such trivial things like healthy eating, regular exercise, healthy sleep schedule and improve mental abilities.
Exhausting work and many hours in the offices prosizhivanie a positive impact on career development for a limited time. After that person becomes a “waste material”. Night’s sleep and think about it.
If there is already talk about nutrition, there are products that enhance our mental abilities. Do not forget to include them in your diet.
5. Time to Schedule :
Working day the average person is filled with phone calls, letters, meetings, tekuchkoj urgent cases. In such circumstances, the brain once banal to tackle more serious issues.
Be sure to highlight even once a day for reflection. Take care that no one and nothing to distract you. You do not have to customize your brain: “Think, think faster.” Simply “load” all available information and relax. Let your powerful intellect to address the problem. The decision can come at the most unexpected moment.
Many people have to adjust the brain to “working the wave” use their rituals. This may be the same as a cup of coffee, or yoga, or a relaxing stroll. Find your ritual, allowing escape from the routine work and take the brain for what he really is.
Among other things, growing up means shouldering their shoulders more and more responsibility. Ward adult child does not care about what to wear on the street, from which to cook dinner and where to get the money to buy an apartment. Growing up, we take on these concerns, we have to make decisions on the validity of which depends on the well-being and success of ourselves and the people around them.
Be smart – it’s not honorable and necessary for survival and achieve life goals.
