I ran across a reference to this article. Hacking Knowledge: 77 Ways to Learn Faster, Deeper and Better. I only got about half way down the list. So I added it here to get back to it later.

In fact, it’s been said that the average adult only uses 10% of his/her brain.

I don’t think so. Humans use almost all their brain. We just do not use it all at the same time. We use certain parts of our brains for different tasks. We might use more than one part when doing multiple tasks, but we can’t add more brain power by changing one area to double duty as another area.

The article has some great ideas in it, but remember that not everything works for everybody. The Kinesthetic Techniques section doesn’t work if, like me, your hands shake too much to write well. For me, the Kinesthetic exercises only serve to frustrate me, and increase my stress. The same is true of walking.

As a younger person I walked a lot. An awful lot. The last foot X-Ray I got was due to some pulled ligaments in my left foot some years ago. The foot doctor (podiatrist?) said I should avoid even low impact exercise like walking. Thankfully, I enjoy bicycling on my stationary bike at home.
