  • techniques to fight the gummy bear invasion

As human beings, we all experience getting "stuck". This talk focuses on techniques to unstick the gummy bears from your neuro pathways.

As human beings, our brains sometimes get stuck. It feels like gummy bears have invaded, got all sticky, and are clogging up our neural pathways. You may experience a general fog which slows down your thinking, or perhaps you forget words, or things you knew and just can’t get retrieve in the moment. Maybe you get stuck working in one direction, and waste entire days not looking up to see if you are going in the right direction. Even writer’s block may be a symptom of sticky gummy bears. Janet explores ways to unstick those gummy bears and get them where they are supposed to be - in a candy jar on your desk. For example, by using focus sessions to work, then rest, enables you to have time to reflect on what you have accomplished. Are you going in the right direction? She also looks at the gummy bear issue from a testing perspective and delves into what it means to the team.
