The Anatomy of Choice and The Four Characters that Drive our Life
It’s common knowledge that, in part, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor’s talk put TED on the map, becoming the first TED Talk that went viral, gathering over 27 million views. I remember being deeply moved by her experience of getting a stroke. She spoke as a scientist, which was fascinating, but she also spoke as a mystic and poet. I know I watched the 18-minute talk several times, soaking it the insights of just how beautiful of a thing our brain is.
Her memoir My Stroke of Insight spent 63 weeks on the NY Time nonfiction bestseller list. Dr. Jill was chosen as one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” and was the premiere guest on Oprah Winfrey’s “Soul Series” webcast. Her new book, Whole Brain Living – was a #1 release on Amazon in categories ranging from Neuroscience to Nervous System Diseases and Stroke.
It is a deeply practical and empowering book, bringing brain science into the real and the mundane daily routines of “dealing with life”. If you want to learn the very actionable and transformative insights of The Anatomy of Choice on how to befriend and benefit all of the four “characters” living in our brain, put your thinking cap on and listen/watch to my conversation with the extraordinary Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor.
“We have the power to choose who and how we want to be in the world each and every moment, regardless of what external circumstances we find ourselves in.” - Dr Jill Bolte Taylor
