How Much Of Your Brain Capacity Do You Use?


Hi everyone

I went to the cinema with my friend last night and saw Lucy. The film explores the theory that we only use 10% of our brain capacity,  and what would happen if we accessed the rest, right up to the full 100%.

I love a film that makes me think, as Ironically I believe it makes me access more of my brain to do so.

Based on the theories in the film, I believe I use more than 10% of my brain, and I am blessed with being quirky because of it.

From what I recall, when Lucy can accesses 28% of her brain capacity, she remembers events in her childhood, that previously she couldn’t recollect.

This got me thinking about my earliest childhood memories. Including one where I was sat on my potty in the kitchen and my mum looked at me, and I felt self conscious. To be so aware of myself at a young age, to me, is very quirky.

Especially in order to write, to be a lateral thinker and come up with creative solutions, I have to allow my creative mind, to take over my normal brain. I have to allow it, its freedom unrestrained. When I do this, magic happens, my quirkiness blossoms and it’s like a special place that my mind it taken to; that to my knowledge, is nothing like one would normally experience. I am truly blessed. To my own mind, this is creative genius. To others it may be crazy, but if quirky is crazy, I love it.

What’s your own take on the situation?

How much of your brain capacity do you feel you use?

What are your earliest childhood memories?

I am very interested to hear your thoughts and looking forward to reading your answers.

When is it good not to think?


Hi everyone

I have so much to tell you.

I am back from my trip to the Success Seminar in London. While I was up there, I also visited London Zoo, I saw the film Anomaly and I went to the Digital Revolution Exhibition, that blew my mind.

On the day I came back, I had 4 hours sleep, then taught the Introduction to blogging course. I took so many photos and that much video footage of the Digital Revolution Exhibition, that my phone stopped working and I couldn’t call or do anything with my phone, until I got it fixed in the EE shop after teaching on Monday 7th.

On Tuesday 8th, I had an admin day. I also cleaned, tidied and cleared out some bottles of stuff from underneath my kitchen sink.

I have been working in my day job every day since, and trying to catch up with social media, emails and blogging.

As you know, I am a deep thinker and my brain never stops thinking. Sometimes it’s good not to think. I have so much to do that if I sat down and did the sensible thing of writing everything down that I have to, it would overwhelm me. Yes, I make written lists of things to do and set myself tasks and goals each day, but if I become too rigid and ‘work-like’ with everything I have to do, it doesn’t feel good. Instead of enjoying what I do, the opposite happens and I become unproductive. Yes, I have an overview of what must be done, but I have to do it the quirky way. If I schedule too much, it becomes a chore and that shows. Does that happen to you?

Things I need to do:

  • I have to create a new website for http://www.beatredundancyblues.com as my web host no longer services RV Sitebuilder that I used to build it. I have been unable to access my admin panel for at least a couple of months and now I can get into it, I can’t make any amendments due to constant Java script errors. This site is currently more popular than my http:// http://www.beatredundancyblues.co.uk site that is built using WordPress. I have no choice but to change it.
  • After making a few amendments to my Break through the barriers of redundancy book, I need to re-index and paginate it, within the interior CreateSpace template.
  • After being asked by businesses about training staff in blogging, I thought it best to set up a website to build a professional brand for my blog training. I have bought the domain name http://www.BlogTrainer.co.uk and have yet to build the site. I have a new @blogtrainerUK Twitter account and now need to grow my followers. Thanks to those of you who have already joined me on that account.

I haven’t forgotten that I still have blog awards to officially accept in future posts. Thanks to all of you who have given me awards. I very much appreciate them.

I managed to track down my English teacher from college. She edits manuscripts. I sent her a copy of my Break through the barriers of redundancy book manuscript so she could give it a quick scan. Her feedback was encouraging. She said it’s interesting, well thought out and there are not many books like it on the market. I was thrilled with those comments. As she is very critical, I know it must be a good book.

Because my Break through the barriers of redundancy book advertises my http://www.beatredundancyblues.com site on the front cover, updating that site, must be a priority.

I have to not think too much and just get on with it.

When would not thinking, be good for you?

Write when I can
