August 20, 2013

gorinI am always both humbled and inspired by the amazing structures of knowledge that Brain users create.  I had the pleasure of sitting down with Daniel Gorin, CEO phase-6 while he was in Los Angeles.  While every user’s Brain is unique, Daniel’s Brain was very interesting, not only because of the scope of his Thoughts, but because he had one of the most impressive Link Type lists I’ve seen. Below is a video that shows some of his Brain and key discussion points we covered during our meeting.

Parent, Child, or Jump…Which Relationship Should I Choose?

August 6, 2013

Welcome to the world of Thought relationships. As you may have noticed the layout of Thoughts in TheBrain isn’t random. Every time you click on a Thought things change, but they are always displayed in certain areas of your display. These areas represent different types of relationships. Let’s start with the basics and then move on to more details.

Intro to Parent, Child, Jump, and Sibling

Active Thought
Relationships are always displayed around and relative to the Active Thought (the Thought in the center.) This gives you a view point or perspective to view and derive other relationships

The Power of Digital Thought

January 8, 2013


How Visualization Leads to Enhanced Self Knowledge
and Better Results

look-up03

Plato refers to thinking as the talking of the soul with itself. Yet one of the problems we have with these “conversations” is their transient nature. Our great ideas and strong moments in life can be fleeting and overlooked in our daily routines, deadlines and tasks. This can leave us in a bit of a rut: always busy with life but never rising above the fray to actualize key values and long-term goals.

Well fellow Brain users, I suggest we all take 2013 to be even more mindful and let our best thoughts and vision shine through in our digital Brains. Capturing your thinking in TheBrain enables you to achieve a level of self-awareness that isn’t possible otherwise. Though using your Brain for self-reflection can happen naturally, you can also create key Thoughts that enable better understanding of your life and help you reach your goals.
