Invisible Gorilla Revised Summary

The Illusion of Potential

  • We have tremendous potential to learn new skills and improve our cognitive abilities. Many suffer from an illusion, however, that there are easy ways to unlock this potential. The brain’s potential is vast, but it takes time and effort to tap it. If you want to get better at something your best bet is to practice that thing. Some metal skills transfer to other highly similar skills, but there doesn’t seem to be any single activity that will make you broadly smarter. There is evidence that aerobic physical exercise can lead to improvement in cognitive tasks. Sitting in a chair and doing cognitive puzzles is far less beneficial than walking for as little as a few hours a week.

  1. I paid the guys at to set up my blog, which is a modification of the standard WordPress blog. If you can’t afford to pay someone to get you going, you can consider using a crowd sourcing service like Kickstarter or Indegogo to raise the necessary funds. Otherwise you can just go to WordPress and see if you can set up your own for free. I don’t think you have to be too tech savvy to do so. Good luck. Let me know if you get something going.
