  1. I’m a physician and when I was in residency back in 2003 we used to talk about our “peripheral brain”. Usually this was just the tasks that we wrote down for each patient on the list of patients we were responsible for in the hospital. It’s been a while since I thought about that and love the idea of applying the concept to my entire life. Wish I could attend the webinar but I’ll be at work.
