The ability to learn IS the Super Power of the Human Species.
"Paradigm: the mindset out of which the system - its goals, structures, rules, delays and parameters - arises."
- Donella Meadows, Thinking in Systems
In her systems thinking theory, Donella Meadows lists Paradigm as the second most Powerful Leverage Point to Change (transcending paradigms is the most powerful.. I’ll get to that one again in a future post).
It’s important for us to know that we are operating within certain mindsets or paradigms. They influence the parameters and logic models our mind-brain-body uses to create algorithms, predictions and behaviors.
one of the most powerful, neuroscience-informed mindsets we can have...
is the belief that evolution and growth are possible. Not perfection, and not being at the pinnacle already.. but the belief that we can be in a place of undesirable, even unhealthy results.. and slowly and incrementally, with struggle and effort, grow and adapt and evolve... and make our way out of the messes we've made 🙂
Learn why the "Mind-Body Set" is a more evolved way to understand human behavior and learning.

Planet earth is not hospitable to humans. Find out why this matters in terms of human intelligence and our learning superpowers. You'll also learn why fixed mindset is neurologically inaccurate.

PLUS my new video!
This is a slightly different version of a video I posted last year about anxiety 🙂
It has some insights into what technology does to your brainwaves. I also go into the power of stillness and how meditation influences brain activity.
