Second Brain and Modesty


second brain and modesty

I think that most people have a negative opinion about a second brain because of the pride and sense of control that comes with the idea that our brain has everything under control.

Yet, when facing the contradiction that they all use a calendar to remember appointments, I generally see a cognitive dissonance (my brain has things under control, hence I don’t use a second brain. I use a calendar? Is it a second brain?).

I think using a second brains needs some amount of modesty and realizing that our brain is not at all suited to tackle the challenge of remembering and accessing stuffs at will.
