business news in context, analysis with attitude

by Kevin Coupe

My dad used to say that if you talk to yourself, it means you either are crazy or have money in the bank.

Which may be true. But according to a new study from the Universities of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, as reported by Business Insider, talking to yourself also may be a way to achieve more and stay on task.

Speaking the name of the target out loud apparently helped a study group get things done faster. Researchers, the story says, “theorize that it works because hearing a familiar word stimulates your brain and helps to process the information faster.

“So next time you lose your wallet, keys or phone, repeating these words to yourself could speed up when you find them.”

It’s an Eye-Opener.
