I should have known.
Back in 2016, I went and did a Ted Talk that was titled “The Brain That Saves You.” But now that I’ve had time to think about it, I could have done it better by saying less.
In that talk, I rambled on, trying to tie a bow around my theoretical argument that your second brain (yes, you have one) may be weird, but it continually saves you in three different ways. I wanted to do too many things with that talk, and as a result, I missed the mark.
The reason is simply the fact that I was suffering from the curse of knowledge. Over the years, I’ve gotten so close to the work of trying to figure out the mysteries associated with this brain that I couldn’t articulate my message clearly to those who’d never heard of such a thing.
Hard to read the label when you’re inside the bottle, or so they say.
I mean, really, what was I doing by attempting to describe in seventeen minutes or less what one brain does, never mind two of them?
After all, the brain is said to be the most complicated thing in the entire solar system and maybe even in the universe itself. Not only that, I’m not a scientist, nor am I a doctor. In fact, I’ve never even set foot in any educational hall of learning greater than the art college I attended back in the seventies.
I’ve never worked as a copywriter either.
Despite such limitations, I still try to move the needle forward with a message that I feel is vital for you to hear. It’s a message about a dual-brain system that can fortify your bright future while relieving your past hurts. So, to keep it simple, I came up with the essence of what you need to hear in one sentence: “Teach your brain what your gut already knows.”
Of course, this entire thing leads to a way that enables you to do this special teaching.
- It’s simple: – uses fewer words than the briefly famous Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.
- It’s effective; I’ve been testing it out for over two decades now in places near and far away via the internet
- It saves time. Just do it once, and it never has to be repeated. No, not ever.
Okay, so I’ve not told you too much in this post. I don’t want to get off track and force you drink from a fire hose, (If you really feel you need to, you can see how that fateful Ted Talk went for me here.)
But what I really need from you is a little help. If you wouldn’t mind, please answer in the comments this simple two-part question: Is this something that piques your interest? If so, what more would you like to learn about it?
Let me know now in the comments below.
More power to you.
