IN A SMALL city in Switzerland on a fine spring day in 1905, a young patent clerk left his one-year-old son and wife at home to go see his best friend about a riddle. The two friends loved exchanging ideas, from philosophy to physics, from art to electricity, and this morning our young patent clerk wanted to discuss a problem that had been vexing him for some time. For the past year, he’d been especially focused on a physics theory he’d begun formulating ten years ago. He laid out every detail of the problem he had been struggling with, and for an entire day the two friends analyzed ideas and rehashed every aspect of the dilemma. As the sun set, the young man finally concluded that the theory he’d been working on for a decade was going nowhere. It had hit a brick wall. Demoralized and dejected, he declared that he was giving up the entire quest. And so Albert Einstein shuffled home and went to sleep. You can imagine his friend’s surprise the next morning when, answering an urgent knock, he opened the door to see Einstein, who bypassed polite greetings and blurted out, “Thank you. I’ve completely solved the problem.” With that, he returned home and began to write. Einstein spent the next six weeks writing out one of the most important scientific contributions of all time: the special theory of relativity. What happened inside Einstein’s brain that night? After years of effort, why did the answer suddenly appear just when he had given up? Einstein’s experience was a classic example of the way our brain creates breakthrough ideas, completely new and novel ways of solving problems and looking at the world. And believe it or not, if you’ve ever had a breakthrough, the exact same thing happened inside your brain, too. For many, breakthroughs are like butterflies—beautiful and awe-inspiring, yet erratic and elusive. In fact, breakthroughs are not accidental, they can be induced, and we are going to show you how. Thanks to new neuroscience research, we now know how the breakthrough process works and we have tools to access it. Breakthroughs, like butterflies, may fly an unpredictable path, but it is possible to capture them if we build the right net. Find out more in The Net And The Butterfly, on sale February 7th.

“Eric Weihenmayer has climbed the ‘seven summits,‘ the tallest peaks on all seven continents. He’s stood atop Mt. Everest in Nepal and Mt. Vinson in Antarctica. As a seven-summit-climber, Weihenmayer is a member of a very small fraternity of elite climbers. But that’s not what is most remarkable about his achievement. Not even close. What is truly remarkable is that Weihenmayer is completely blind. How did Weinhenmayer make his way through ice and snow?

It's official: Judah Pollack (author of The Chaos Imperative) and I have signed with Penguin / Random House for the upcoming blockbuster (right?) entitled: Wiring The Breakthrough Brain: In Search Of The Designer Mind For the past few decades, we've been focusing on body-sculpting, body-shaping, essentially getting designer bodies. We're now at the dawn of a new era: neuro-shaping and neuro-sculpting, getting designer minds. Just as we decided we'd no longer be content with the bodies Nature gave us, now we're deciding we'll no longer be content with the minds Nature gave us, either. The book will show you how to shape your brain anyway you want. For those of you who've seen the movie "Limitless", it's that, but in real life. The adventure begins....

The art of accepting apologies: Hearing someone apologize can often feel awkward. There’s no way around it. Our natural impulse is to stop them early, to staunch the flow. We may think we’re sparing them, but in reality, we’re really our own feelings of discomfort we’re shying away from. (read the rest here: http://askolivia.com/resources/blog/)

Reading "The Willpower Instinct" and loving it so far. One great tidbit: "neuroscientists found that when you ask your brain to meditate, it gets better not just at meditating, but at a wide range of self-control skills, including attention, stress management, impulse control, and self-awareness. Regular meditators have more gray matter in their prefrontal cortex, and over time their brains become finely tuned willpower machines. "
