Favorite Tip #57: Using the Mind

Favorite Tip #57: Using the Mind

Using the mind thoroughly requires the following steps.

  1. Head Knowledge – acquiring data through observation, using the five senses, and thinking about this data until we understand it
  2. Gut Knowledge – integrating the head knowledge until it merges with our core being, until we understand how it relates to other knowledge we possess, and how this information matters to us and why we should or shouldn’t care about it
  3. Fingertip Knowledge – gut knowledge is useless unless it shoots our fingertips into a product or onto a page, unless we use the gut knowledge either in performing a task or in sharing through teaching or writing


  1. nice. I hadn’t put these three together in this way before.

    • Thank you so much, Louise. Cheers, Ashley
