Wait?!? What?!?! I have a second brain? Yes, you do.
Ever feel like your brain is about to burst at the seams because you can’t fit anymore content, topics and ideas in?
If only diffusion* works (bio-lovers will get this hopefully!) when I put that textbook over my head hoping it will seep in. But – in reality we are approaching things in the wrong manner.
Our brain is like a computer. It has a memory capacity, and we should be using that for what we really need. We shouldn’t be eating up its RAM by trying to remember what we need to do tomorrow, what homework we have and when’s that assessment due.
Instead, we should use our second brain.
Introducing you to your second brain: pen and paper. Yes, it’s really that simple! Or if you’re fancy, you can use a note-taking app. But, the essence of your second brain is to jot down thoughts the second they appear in your mind.
Capture them and take them out of the brain where all the work needs to be done. Don’t occupy your brain with things that aren’t of utmost importance at the time. This will allow you to focus and use your full brainpower in the task at hand.
