Who doesn’t dream of taking full control of their brain, becoming a master of their own mind? For tens of thousands of years, individuals from every culture around the world have claimed the ability to focus their thoughts and brain activity to a state of profound one-pointedness, leading to incredible mental feats, deep states of calm, and numerous enhancements to the brain’s day to day functionality. Whether these people are called gurus, yogis, spiritual masters, or even prophets, the recipe for unlocking the brain’s full potential has traditionally involved methods such as years of sensory deprivation, the use of rare and exotic entheogens, praying to a higher power, or even a mixture of all the above. However, studies have revealed that the ability to change the brain, both biologically and psychologically, is already at our fingertips. You don’t need to be a spiritual guru to start hacking and changing your brain this moment; altering your own brain is far simpler than you might think!
Firewalking: A Female Perspective on Breaking Barriers
About this webinar
In 2018, 20% of all jobs in technology were held by women (Source: Small Business Trends). Fortune 500 companies with at least 3 women in leading positions saw a 66% increase in ROI (Source: Women Who Tech). In this panel, led by Dr. Dawn Beyer, we will share our unique experiences on how we have bypassed firewalls to enter a male dominated field while opening doors for others to do the same.

Mise en Place means "everything in it's place." Chefs practice this to run their kitchens efficiently. My father managed his tools in the garage this way.
Then why does our digital life seem so disorganized and disoriented?
In this NPR article, instructor Lipuma at the Culinary Institute of America (the other CIA),:
"The world is a giant gerbil wheel right now," Lipuma says. "I think if we just became a little bit more organized, a little bit more mise-en-place, [understand] what we really need and only do what we really need, I think we'll have more time" — time for what's important, he says.
"You'll be able to sit down at the table with your kids and actually cook a meal. Get up a little bit earlier so you could breathe. You want to greet the day."
And that sounds marvelous!
I recently published the first open source version of my Technology Management Playbook. The playbook includes the following information:
The topics range from how to give a speech to decision making, and approaches for estimating, planning, and managing technology initiatives.
The foundation for much of the Playbook was my doctoral study in Technology Management, Communications, Cloud Computing, and Cybersecurity.
If you have any additions, I would love to hear from you! @jeffdaniels
