The Rock.Paper.Scissors newsletter is out: funny resources related to John Medina’s Brain Rules book

This month’s Rock.Paper.Scissors newsletter is a review of John Medina’s wonderful Brain Rules book, where he talks about what our world could be like if our businesses & boardrooms matched how our brains work (instead of going against the gray matter).

Check out the entire e-newsletter here and/or see below for some funny resources related to his 12 Brain Rules principles.

  • Related to John’s Brain Rules exercise principle check out this phenomenally creative way to encourage folks to exercise.  When was the last time you got this excited about working out?

  • Related to John’s Brain Rules attention principle see this funny video clip about the dangers of not paying attention.

  • Everyone needs to sleep.  Related to John’s sleep principle watch yourself melt as you see this guy’s technique for inducing sleep.

  • My favourite Brain Rules principle is exploration.  If we don’t explore we can feel trapped.  Watch this uber creative video trapped in an IPhone.

    Hello Lee-Ann

    I recently read this quote by William Arthur Ward:
    “The mediocre teacher tells. The good Teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires”

    To me, you are an outstanding teacher, who inspires, support, and challenge. As a result of attending 2 workshops with you, I am experiencing the following symptoms:

    Becoming overly excited (shaking from within) by the exhilarating material I am reading, in RPS resources, especially the final newletter
    Judging other instructors and finding their way of teaching dull and boring (this is bad I know)
    Adoring Dayana Valentine’s spontaneity
    Believing that things can be changed indeed by not being too serious about them
    Seeing the process not the destination (now this is a miracle!!!)
    Trusting that my ant colony is about to be formed

    Thank you my dear instructor, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS for you and your family and warm wishes to all in Nairobi

    Thank you Rania and Lee-Anne, for dedicating yourself to your craft. Rania, I’d love to hear how your ant colony forms over time–please stay in touch. Lee-Anne, keep the wow-factor high–I have no idea how you keep fresh content flowing so magically.
