Hi, I am JOE and I write on "Mindful Productivity & Cerebral Happiness". My weekly newsletter is an endeavour to share life lessons, some thoughts, quotes and links to articles/podcasts/books, I discover over the week. Let's gear up to connect the dots and 'Unlock Human Potential'.


Hey friends,
During the week, I came across a very interesting term ‘ Cognitive Bottlenecks’. I took a little deep dive into it and found that these cognitive bottlenecks put inherent limits on a thinking mind.
As You’re probably well aware that humans can’t see infrared, or that you can’t use echolocation to find your way around. Most of us have a pretty good idea of our sensory bottlenecks. However, we’re somehow very bad at evaluating our cognitive bottlenecks. You often hear people say they’re good at multitasking, or that they can pay attention to several conversations at the same time. But the fact is that our cognitive bottlenecks have a massive impact on the way we work and interact with the world.
We believe that by combining two tasks, we will complete them sooner than if we worked on them separately. We also trust that we can consider many different facts when making complex decisions. What we do not consider is that ‘our thinking mind is limited by two Big Bad Bottlenecks – Our Attention and Our Working Memory’.
Everyone will have different profiles for levels of attention and working memory, and your cognitive capacities also vary throughout the day and throughout the years. Just being aware of the existence of these cognitive bottlenecks can help you avoid being overconfident in your cognitive capacities, and to make more sound decisions at work and in your daily life.
Once we get rid of the illusionary multitasking and the toxic productivity, cognitive bottlenecks are not inherently bad. They are just characteristics of our minds, we need to consider when we plan our work and interact with the world.
To know more on ‘ What are these Intrinsic limitations of the thinking mind and how to manage your cognitive bottlenecks’ , you can read here by clicking on the link above . Just apply these simple cognitive management strategies mentioned in my aforesaid article to unshackle your productivity without creating unnecessary stress.
Add these concepts to your thinking toolbox so you can make smarter choices and avoid unnecessary anxiety at work.
Take Care
Joe

❤️ 🧠My Favourite Things of the Week : 🧤🧤
Hey friends, In this section, I share some of the valuable Life Lessons, Thoughts, Quotes, and Links to articles/podcasts/books which I discover over the week. Do check them out as well:-
🍀This is what I am reading 📖📖 👇
The Four Tendencies
🍀 A Saying which resonated in me :
We all have scars and bruises from past lovers, painful failures, and moments of humiliation. We all have secrets but no matter how dark and embarrassing they seem, we cannot let them consume our joy in life.
A secret is like a black hole, it just tries to suck us in. But the wild strength inside each of us is free and daring, it doesn’t allow some stupid event from the past to define the entire life.
You are here to thrive and not to live in the shadow of past mistakes and shame that was imposed on you by someone’s insecurities.
