    Mindset — To add to the mindset list, consider a WHOLE-BRAIN mindset as introduced in this YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufsyD15k_rI

    By understanding more about how the brain works, we are able to engage our left and right brains and our conscious and subconscious minds and, as a result, work and live smarter — more effective, creative, and innovative.

    As succinctly stated by author Betty Edwards, “Half a brain is better than none; a whole brain would be better.”

    My book, Introduction to Creativity and Innovation for Engineers, Pearson Education, 2017, lays and then builds on a brain basics foundation. The second chapter is titled “The Brain: A Primer.”
