+Brian Saetre The concept of cortical inhibition and frontal lobe shutdown is definitely interesting! You should check out Vik Nithy's video on procrastination. Our limbic system and prefrontal cortex are constantly fighting for our attention. It makes intuitive sense - I certainly struggle with doing "high level", priority activity when...

Thanks for your input, +Jon Ray and +Brian Saetre! Here's quick visual recap of coherence performance presentation from our earlier post (http://goo.gl/mVlg3)...

To help me keep these insights close to heart, I've started creating short charts to capture words of wisdom I've stumbled across that I can review at a glance. 

You know what... I'm going to start a community for this conversation. #initiative  :)

I like the way your brain works, Rich. Great idea for a community. I'll be sure to bring a health dose of eccentric esoteric flair to balance out all this technical mumbo jumbo. :)

I think this is a great framework explaining how our thinking and behavior is very dependent on subconscious factors. And that consistently mastering your performance is a function of controlling input from the physiological foundation up. Especially helpful for those Cartesians (http://goo.gl/aU8I) among us who sometimes forget that thinking happy thoughts won't solve all our problems... (i.e. me.)

Interesting stuff! I'm going to delve a little deeper into this concept of cortical inhibition/frontal lobe shutdown.

Following up on comments from +Brian Saetre and +Jon Ray... 

Jon, I think you're right. In many ways, mindfulness seems to be the proactive component of the physiological feedback -> emotions -> thinking loop. Like you were saying, if we bring thinking awareness to any of the foundational pillars that inform our thinking, we can improve it. There seems to be some evidence around this from the book "Buddha's Brain" which notes that the act of being aware of an emotion disrupts the cycle of emotion -> thinking -> emotion. Interesting...

Yeah, I look at it as a feedback loop, where what you put into the "machine" goes in, the core component parts are deconstructed and identified, then they can be reassembled in the future in similar but wholly different way. Ultimately, it comes down to, what are you feeding your machine, though.

Very corporate. Unwilling to stay open 2 extra minutes to accommodate us coming from Madison WI in the rain. I spoke with the receptionist and her manager. Both came across as discourteous and uninformed.

I am very disappointed with my experience at Radio Shack in Fitchberg. An employee at this location agreed to reserve a phone for me to pick up and purchase later that day. I found out they sold the phone, and were completely out of stock when I called before I came to the store. When I spoke to the manager about the incident, she was very unprofessional. She at first denied that I reserved the phone and then, after a 10 minute argument over whether customer or her store was to blame, she made a very unenthusiastic effort to order another phone. In general I think RadioShack struggles to be relevant in the cell phone retail market. They had a great opportunity to gain local customer loyalty as the retailer of a great phone at an exceptional, exclusive price. Unfortunately, they blew the opportunity by not being able to keep the phone in stock and offering very poor customer service district wide. The Fitchberg location was a disappointing example.

50 min for a delivery for me and my guests. I was outside when they called, but the driver already left. No pizza. No apology.

Always a great place for value. Try their meatball subs.
