"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Dilip Mukerjea, writing in his book, 'Building BrainPower: Turning Grey Matter into Gold', offers the following Action Points for Your Brain:

1) Establish goals to develop your brain. Link it to a vision that is real and vibrant. Match them both to your purpose in life and to your calling, which is your embedded destiny.

2) Apply the mental matrix (left & Right Brain Hemispheric specialties) to your life, family, learning, and relationships so as to achieve cognitive balance, and thereby boost your creative output.

3) Put more colour in your life, personality, conversations, dress, notes, and the people you meet.

4) Increase your day-dreaming time.

5) Develop your imagination; look for a 'Return on Imagination' (ROI).

6) Look for the connections between things, events, and phenomena in life.

7) Take up your dream hobby (music, art, languages, sports, etc.), and live it at a molecular level.

8) Find role models such as the "Great Brains" throughout history; allow them to inspire your efforts in life.

9) Keep physically healthy to remain mentally healthy; these two qualities are indispensable in becoming spiritually healthy. Take up aikido.

10) Think in metaphors and analogies, and equate them with every aspect of your life; they provide wisdom and are the ingredients of 'brain song'; the music of your inherent genius.
