But what does it mean to be mentally agile? Let’s look at it from the view of two very different types of race-car drivers:
Do you race through life only to have hardship throw you off-track? Have you ever done something without thinking about why you did it, or felt a particular emotion but don’t know why? If so, you need to stop letting the primal emotions of your reptilian brain control your life and learn how to be mentally agile. Knee-jerk reactions worked for our ancestors when they were busy surviving sabre-tooth tigers, but our brains, and our world, have evolved a little since then. We’re not saying you should become a Formula 1 driver, but it might not hurt to think like one. So how do you get started?
“A programmable mind embraces mental agility, to practice ‘de-learning’ and ‘relearning’ all the time.” – Pearl Zhu
