When Does 1 + 1 = 100 Billion?

Double your potential by engaging your other 50 billion brain cells.

Allyson Lewis, 04/28/2011

Human potential seems unlimited. Every time an athletic record is set, within a certain period of time someone is running faster, swimming longer, or jumping higher.

What are the boundaries of an ordinary human? Is there a limit to what you can learn? Who sets the rules for how productive you can be, or how much you can like your job?

Where does this extraordinary ability come from? In my book, The Seven Minute Difference, I call it "Pushing Past the One Yard Line." The idea comes from watching football teams make it to the one yard line of the opposing team's goal and watching the offense struggle to move the ball the last 36 inches into the end-zone. 

How many of you reading this article have been doing a good job, but you find yourself standing on the one yard line of life wondering why you can't go the last little bit? How many little things (we call them micro-actions) could you do just a little bit better every day that would allow your life to be geometrically better in the long run?

In this article, I want to give you access to 50 billion things that can change your life in an instant.

Left-Brain, Right-Brain
One of the tag lines for our company is: "Change happens in an Instant!® It happens the moment you DECIDE to change." So much of your human ability has been with you all along. It is just time to re-discover it.

1 + 1 equals 100 billion in the human brain. One set of 50 billion brain cells in the left hemisphere, plus one set of 50 billion brain cells in the right hemisphere equals 100 billion brain cells.

These two hemispheres are very distinct and incredibly different. The left brain is logical, linear, sequential, fact-driven, and usually controls the language center. This portion of your brain allows you to plan, set goals, and understand written words.
