Welcome to Minisode Monday, where we kick off the week with something quick and actionable — to make you more magnetic and effective — that you can implement right away.
Tinker Dabble Doodle Try: Unlock the Power of the Unfocused Mind author Dr. Srini Pillay rejoins us to talk about how we can benefit from the seemingly meandering path of dabbling to unlock creativity and make useful connections between disparate interests.
Let’s get to it!
The Cheat Sheet:
- If you’re only looking forward and focusing on a task you’ve set out to tackle, your brain is only using a small portion of its resources. To access the rest, understand the power of dabbling.
- We need regular distractions from our primary course of action — like hobbies. If you engage in a hobby for one hour a day, you can prolong life and protect your brain from dementia.
- Hobbies also trigger the brain’s unfocused mode, which activates your creative circuits and helps you make connections you might otherwise miss.
- It was by this dabbling that Steve Jobs applied what he learned in calligraphy class to create fonts for Apple.
- This week, make sure to listen to Dr. Srini Pillay’s full episode on harnessing the power of your unfocused mind and give some thought to how it can help you connect your own disparate interests.
