Cognitive load management



Published
Our brains are remarkable - thousands of times more powerful than the most powerful computers, and capable of doing many different things at once. We’re only aware of just a fraction of what the brain makes us aware of through our consciousness - most of its activity is done without us being aware of it (and, no, it’s absolutely not true that we only use a small percentage of our brain’s power - we use it all, but we’re only aware of a small fraction of it). And yet, our brains have limits. And they have mechanisms to manage what happens when they get near those limits. From headaches and sleep to blackouts and memory loss, the brain protects itself from overload.

An important skill for every person to develop is to know the capability of their own brain, and to maximise this capability as far as possible. Some of the capabilities of our brains are fixed, and each of us has a different base level of brain activity and functioning, but almost all of our brains can be developed and enhanced, from IQ to endurance.

One of the most important capabilities we will need in the future of work is called cognitive load management. This is the ability to discriminate and filter information for importance, and to understand how to maximize cognitive functioning using a variety of tools and techniques.
