Publisher's Summary

Brainblocks are the mental obstacles that keep people from achieving success, defined as setting, pursuing, and achieving a goal.

Managing the brain is the solution to preventing mental blocks from interfering with achieving your goals. And neuropsychologist Dr. Theo Tsaousides gives you the tools to improve:

  • Awareness:
    • the seven brainblocks to success
      • self-doubt
      • procrastination
      • impatience
      • multitasking
      • rigidity
      • perfectionism
      • negativity
    • the characteristic feelings, thoughts, and actions associated with each brainblock
    • the brain functions involved in goal-oriented action
    • brain glitches and how they create setbacks
    • the cost of not removing brainblocks
    • the best strategies to remove the blocks

  • Engagement:
    • actively search for brainblocks in your actions, thoughts, and feelings
    • recognize and label each brainblock as soon as it is identified
    • practice each strategy consistently until it becomes second nature
    • track your progress toward a goal

Through these strategies you will learn to overcome these cognitive obstacles and harness the power of the brain to achieve success in any endeavor.

Not worth my time

Boring and repetitive. Full of general platitudes without real value. Full of anecdotes that paper over the nuances of behavior and generalizes them to develop simple-minded rules.

The reader is quite good, but a quality performance does not make a quality experience.
