We have all made New Years resolutions that gradually lose energy out fade away, failing to achieve any improvement. In Book 2 we provided step-by-step instructions on how to design better brains that can cultivate the habits of wellbeing. These Action Plans will only work if you do them long enough to permanently chance the structure of your brain.
In Skill-Sets For A Better Brain, Book 3 of the Better Brains by Design series, you learn specific techniques and practice to help you initiate and sustain effective habits of wellbeing. Harness your creative powers. Enhance your motivation and willpower. Master the skills of healthy, happy living.
You will learn how apply the principles of the MINDRAMP Creative Cycle to the creative challenge of designing your Action Plans. You will learn the seven core stages of the creative process, what thinking skills are needed for each stage and how to navigate your way through the entire cycle.
The motivation you bring to your project is critical to your success in sustaining behavior changes long enough for them to take hold. Motivation is an emotion, but it is also a skill-set that can be learned, practiced and enhanced. You will learn to move from extrinsic to intrinsic motivation and how to find “flow” in the performance of your Action Plans.
Like motivation, a process of constant, mindful improvement (mastery) is a skill-set that can be learned. You will learn how we human beings have an innate drive to develop our skills and how we can tap into this evolved resource to become increasingly comfortable and proficient at the activities that build better brains.
Sustaining your work on health enhancing behavior change requires will power and grit. As with all of the skill-sets in this book, there are specific techniques you will learn to strengthen your will power and learn how to structure your day to take full advantage of fluctuations in your grit and resolution. You will learn that will power is like a muscle. Exercise it and it gets stronger. Let it languish and it grows weaker. And, like a muscle, using will power causes it to tire and become less effective.
As you build your skill-sets, your ability to perform your Better Brains Action Plans becomes easier, more efficient and more effective. Your brain gets stronger and sharper the more you practice the skill-sets for better brains.
