Brain Defragging & 10 Tips 4 Emotional Healing

What really helps us reduce our sadness, anxiety, and other emotional distress?

It’s certainly NOT old 1990 computers. Remember those? Back then we had to manually set the machine to defrag the hard drives. Apologies to Apple fans heh, heh. I don’t want to lose you, so simply put, defragging is a process of “cleaning up” and restructuring the empty spaces left on the hard drive after files are deleted or moved. It straightens up data blocks and fills the “holes”. On screen it kind of looked like Tetris. Oh-oh! Now I’ve lost any readers born after 1984! Sheesh. Let me quickly get to the point…but first, a lead-in. Hard drive defragging has been automatic in background for many years and lately, science has told us, that our very own brains do a similar defrag process when we are sleeping. I forgot to mention that if your computer drive isn’t cleaned up and reorganized by defrag on a regular basis, its “brain” gets all gummed up, productivity slows down and the ‘puter’s processing can begin to get confused. Nah, I made that last part up… but our brain is by far the fastest processor ever assembled. Yes, ok. I have worked on several types of mass production lines, but let’s ignore that for now. What is important though is that if someone isn’t consistently getting enough quality sleep, the brain’s defrag program won’t have enough run time to scrub the debris from the little gray cells and restructure the junk space. Hey! Nobody really knows how much mental, emotional and physical impairments may develop as consequences.

The point? Keep trying everyday to live your best life…unless, you know, you’re mister perfect already.

I mean who doesn’t need help getting back on that horse about now?

Ok, ready? This guy ↙is good! Here are his 10 Tips for Emotional Healing.

You Are What Think 🤔 (you are)…and Do.

Learning something new and then employing the new thing changes up who you are and what you can accomplish. As a productivity professional, I learned a stellar *system* of success way back in 1981 that has served me well. However, being open to *new* ideas is a sign of intelligence and could pay dividends that accelerate your success; thereby giving you more time for other goals, like fishing or napping! Knowing that even one new idea can make all the difference, I want to share with you this recent post from one of the Leadership folks on LinkedIn.

Be well and prosper.

Leading with a conscience.

Today we take a page from Ms. Lolly Daskal’s playbook. 

Our everyday behavior at work and at home is where our conscience lies, where our lives begin to matter.

It is not good enough that your organization has a great strategy.

It is not good enough that your strategy is going to get you results.

Your strategy and leadership need to all be based on values with the expectation that everyone, top to bottom, will adhere to those values.

Responsible AI marks a new frontier.

Daugherty and Wilson point out that responsible AI, which was hinted at in their original research and spelled out in more detail in their recent article “Using Artificial Intelligence to Promote Diversity,” has become a much more important question. Thinking about bias, transparency, and accountability will be crucial in the future development of AI systems. As the authors describe, “These are going to be really important issues for businesses and organizations to grasp and to make sure that as we have increasing numbers of people working in AI and more powerful solutions delivered with the AI, how do we make sure we deliver the right outcomes in all cases?”  read more or listen by clicking the Link below.
