If you follow this blog, the following thought — thrown out in an article as if it were something new — would be obvious.
For a long time, it was believed that people are born with a given level of intelligence, and the best we could do in life was to live up to our potential.
Scientists have now proven that we can actually increase our potential and enjoy ourselves in the process.
We now know that by learning new skills the brain creates new neural pathways that make it work faster and better.
The article is not all a restatement of the obvious. It also lists some activities that you can do that will increase your cognitive capacity
Nice stuff. But on a more basic level, before you start doing this stuff regularly, you need to embrace a more basic idea. As Musashi said, each second gives you the opportunity to be the person you want to be. In other words, it si not “one and done”. It is a path you take where you build capacities as you go. No path, no building. No building, nothing new.
Go for it!.
