Brain health shouldn't be a mystery because everyone deserves a healthy brain.
Effectiveness requires efficiency.
In today’s world, where it often seems 24 hours are insufficient and there are innumerable distractions competing for your attention, intentionally managing your cognitive load is more important than ever.
Whether you run a Fortune 500 company or are simply mentally exhausted at the end of a busy day, the new 21st century skill is being able to maximize the effort exuded in learning, decision-making and performing mental exercises.
Cognitive load theory was first proposed in 1988 by John Sweller, an Australian educational psychologist at the University of New South Wales. Although he was focused on the educational end of the spectrum, his cognitive load theory can be applied to many industries – indeed, many aspects of life.
The working memory has a finite capacity every day. Working memory is the process through which the brain evaluates, analyzes, decides, and then chooses what to store long-term or discard.
This finite capacity is known as the cognitive load... what can your brain successfully process today?
The fantastic thing about cognitive load is that it resets every night as you sleep. Cognitive load does have limits, in not only the amount of data it can handle, but also attention span and duration for each decision or project.
Managing your cognitive load is important to making good decisions throughout the day. The phrase “decision fatigue” is sometimes used to describe cognitive overload. Take a page from some of the brilliant minds of the last few decades and you’ll find there are a few ways to manage your cognitive load.
Instead of allowing decisions to be forced upon you, choose where you exert your mental energies. Take control of your working memory and allocate the finite daily resources you have to the task you have given priority.
