Difficulty during practice leads to more changes in the brain (more efficient changes? More learning? ) What kinds of difficult practice do you engage in? Why do you think you learn better when undergoing difficulty? Each individual is the designer of their own brain Do you think this is true? Why? Can the brain be designed by ourselves? How? One must pay attention to their daily habits when designing their brain Why? How do habits effect the design of our brains? Which habits do you think we should pay attention to?

How long would it take? • What behaviours do you have in your life that you feel benefit you/your brain? How would you add these when designing the brain? • How do you implement positive habits and behaviours? How long would you have to sustain them to create your ideal brain? Do these habits and behaviours help over night? Or is it long term? • What behaviours and habits do you have that you feel you must be eradicated? Cut down on? Why do you think they aren’t beneficial for learning? How difficult will it be to cut down these habits and behaviours?
