What to know about what you don’t know you know. #1: Intuition is very efficient—if you don't overthink it.

Thank you for your comments! Let's try a little experiment (your responses will actually help us with our research): What is the most disturbing word in your life? Loneliness? Poverty? Cancer? Helplessness? Put your negative word down as a comment. Then ask yourself, "Is it really true?" Write down three strategies you know you can use to interrupt and transform this disturbing thought. When you write down a negative thought and neutrally look at what you wrote, you defuse its neurological power. When you write down three solutions, you prime your brain to take action each time the negative thought returns. Writing down your strategy increases the success of changing an old memory by 50%.
