When you’re in an emergency situation your brain knows to laser focus in on what’s happening right here right now. It’s one of the amazing functions of the amygdala. But when we’re in the midst of a trial or challenge, zooming in to have a more short-term focus can be useful. It can help you operate with more peace and success. In addition, when you are working on a goal or striving to improve yourself or an aspect of your life, I want to recommend that you lengthen your lens. It’s challenging for the brain to think about what you really want in 10 or 20 years and even more challenging to think as big as what is truly possible. But the more clearly you can decide what you want, the easier your decisions become and the more likely you are to get to your ideal future. Check out today’s episode for more details.

    I hope you get this, I don’t have itunes. I am curious your thoughts on bullies. Having a hard time with the labeling of it. I know I’m making that word mean something bad as I think most of us do. All these anti bully campaigns have me curious about your thoughts on it. I think bullies have always been around. Wondering why now are we labeling it as such. Because now it’s a problem, but it wasn’t before? Are we more emotionally sensitive than we were before? Is this all my thinking? Also curious how you’d Talk to a “bully” or someone who was “bullied.” Hope to hear a podcast on this soon. 😉
