"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 Mind & Body:

1) Mind Map your health and fitness goals and make a start TODAY! Learn to translate intention into action with a clear sense of purpose. You should aim to improve with age!

2) Know yourself better; regularly measure strength, flexibility, fintness and poise - physically, mentally, and spiritually.

3) Do basic aerobic training: 20 minutes per session, at least three times a week. This will help you to develop focus, improve memory, and project viability.

4) Strengthen your muscles through correct regimes for diet, sleep, and exercise.

5) Keep flexible by remaining active at a level that does not strain your physique. Equate physical flexibility with mental flexibility. Cognitive agility and creative perspectives emerge from this quality.

6) Develop your poise through: The Alexander Technique, Tai Chi, Yoga, Aikido, and other such practices.

7) Rest at regular intervals so as to nurture and nourish your heart and brain. Minimise, or eliminate stress, by thinking positive, happy thoughts. This 'intangible' quality is the spark plug for your creativity and increased productivity.

8) Play! Play! Play! Remember the Greek words: PAIDEIA = the concept of education; PAIDIA = the concept of play; Thus, Education and Learning are very closely related to PLAY!

9) Persist woth your persistence. NEVER GIVE UP! Chase your passion but retain your composure.

10. Daily, help others to rise above their status quo. You can never help yourself on the inside if you forget about those on the outside.
