“How People Learn. If you want people to be able to pay attention, don’t start with details. Start with the key ideas and, in a hierarchical fashion, form the details around these larger notions. Meaning before details.”
This is just one of the concepts author John Medina shares in MFF’s newest book suggestion, Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School. This book is a favorite of Jillian, our Director of Education. She writes, “Medina shares 12 principles for using your brain to survive and thrive. A few of the most interesting principles I learned were that our brains were built for walking 12 miles a day and to boost brain power we need to move. Also, our brain gives us only an approximate view of reality because it mixes new knowledge with past memories. This book shed light for me on why people can have the same experience and come up with two different perspectives. This is an interesting read, especially if you want to understand how you learn and remember things.”
