Brain Boost on Steroids

Panning for gold near Julian, California in 2011.

Sampling Life

Panning for gold didn’t pan out (we even tried using a donkey to find gold) but we got a whole new education and a big boost to our brain power – California 2011.

I have often felt inferior because I never specialized in a subject to become an expert. But this week I read an article in Dr. Oz The Good Life magazine that made me feel a whole lot better.

The article was under the heading of “Brain Boost” and said that sampling or “dabbling” in subjects helps you become a more creative problem solver and gives you more experiences to draw from.

If that is the case, my brain boost must be on steroids. Weasel and I have sampled so many ways of life and so many subjects, mostly due to being nomadic with its many challenges and freedom to try new things.
