067: MMM - On Shutting Down Your Pre-Frontal Cortex

On this week's Mini Moved Me:

I don't consider myself a brain expert (which is why I'm friends with awesome people like Erin Walsh from episode 004!) - but I know this:

Our pre-frontal cortex is really important in growing up, acting like an adult, making good decisions and generally being a responsible human.

But it's super un-helpful in creating things. 

As creative people, we have to learn when to shut down that filter that tells us all the reasons why something might not work and opt instead for thinking more like an irresponsible child.

(Don't tell my kids.)

 So the next time you're ideating - dreaming - wondering - imagining - CREATING! -

shut down that responsible part of your brain and call upon the child within.
