We recently sat down with James Garrett, AIA, NOMA, Founder of 4RM+ULA Architects in St. Paul, MN. Nothing was off-limits during this far-reaching conversation. We discussed George Floyd, Racism in the Design Industry, the challenge in designing Memorable Structures, and James’ family history in St. Paul – He’s a 5th Generation Resident with ties to an influential City Architect and a Grandfather who was Deputy Police Chief of St. Paul.

When it comes to design, 4RM+ULA focuses on Technology, Environmental Sustainability, and Art. 4RM+ULA’s goal is to leverage these three things to have an impact on the Communities that they serve.

Listen to the co-founder of 4RM+ULA, in St. Paul, Minn., detail the impact of systemic racism of black architects, call out the willfully ignorant, and explain the underpinnings of "Minnesota Nice."

This episode references the 2019 NAACP report "The Twin Cities Economic Inclusion Plan." A link to the report can be found in the June 4 Washington Post op-ed "It’s hard to hear ‘Minnesota Nice’ without undertones of irony and despair," by journalist Michele L. Norris.

EP194 - Special Panel Discussion with James Garrett: Discover What's Possible at the Outer Edges of Brain Hacking

Play
Read more

Your brain has its own logic that doesn’t come with a user’s manual. It’s a system you have to figure out on your own. But when you start to unravel the mystery and dive in, you’ll discover a whole new you. A you that’s fully connected from your brain to your heart--one that’s more present in every moment and open to different possibilities. Lucky for you, brain coach and brain-hacker, James Garrett, is here to share how to tap into your neuroplasticity to make some real internal change.    

James is the founder of Brain By Design and lead adventurer behind the Deep Change Project. He’s spoken on stages ranging from Harvard to TEDx and The New York Times, while Fast Company and Harvard Business Review have featured his work. James spent years doing research with some of the best psychologists in the world at Columbia, Tufts, and Yale. With this unique combination of roles as a scientist, trainer, and entrepreneur, in 2019 James launched the Deep Change Project which is a year-long personal journey to discover what's possible at the outer edges of brain hacking and neuroplasticity. 

Discover the true potential of the human brain--listen in!

Key Takeaways:

Your long game. There’s a myth that we only use 10% of our brains. Neuroplasticity defies that myth and says your true potential uses all of your brain and unfolds over time. And if you’re looking for real, deep change in your life, know THIS first . . . [09:44].

Your learned skill. You’re in the middle of making a big change--like quitting a job because you know in your heart there’s something else out there--then, you start to doubt yourself. Slowly you have this sense like you’re headed down the wrong road. HERE’S what your inner voice is really trying to tell you . . . [20:43].

Your internal escape. James says, “Anxiety is future-oriented, fear is present-oriented.” Which are you more concerned with–the future or the present? What if there was a way to harness this impediment in order to fully evolve? The SECRET to your personal progress is . . . [33:25]. 

Your Deep Change Project. This is it. You’re ready to start the next version of yourself that consists of new habits, new perspectives, and living a life that allows you to embrace anything and everything that’s thrown your way. Your “change lab,” awaits HERE . . . [44:46].

Tune in and turn the volume up for a dose of inspiration and life lessons. You're never more than One Idea Away from a whole, new reality.

EP179 - Brain Coach and Founder of Brain by Design, James Garrett: Discover What's Possible With a Little Brain Hacking

Play
Read more

The research is clear⁠—the brain’s obsessed with safety and survival. What’s most interesting is our brains are more concerned with what we do rather than who we are . . . but what does it all mean? Listen in as brain coach, James Garrett, shares more revelations and insight from his wealth of experience and travel.

James is the Founder and CEO of Brain by Design. As a brain hacker, he has spoken on stages ranging from Harvard to TEDx and his work has been featured in The New York Times, FastCompany, Harvard Business Review, as well as many others. James spent years doing research with some of the best psychologists in the world at Columbia as well as Yale. He's a content creator at Course Builder; his course on the science of coaching has been rated one of the best courses for coaches and is currently certified by the International Coach Federation for continuing coach education credits. James also built one of the only brain-based positive psychology curriculum in the Middle East and trained thousands of Arab youth in partnership with Queen Rania of Jordan.

Discover what’s possible with a little brain hacking and an enlightening introduction to neuroplasticity.

Kay takeaways:

Brain recognition. Ever meet someone new and you’re instantly convinced of who they are? In 10 minutes you’ve stereotyped their personality and, turns out, there’s science behind it all. Change your initial behavior and unlock major opportunities by knowing THIS . . . [09:51].

Brain focus. Bringing on little change is doable, step by step, but what about shifting master habits? The BIG changes you seek and deeply care about? The best research says to try this ONE thing to get you going . . . [18:20].

Brain tricks. You have bad habits. You have good habits. For James, he has a habit of craving chocolate at 10 PM nightly. Whether it’s a good/bad thing, your brain doesn’t care as long as what you do is routine. HERE’s why and how to make changes . . . [26:03]

Brain breakdown. So many of us are living in a state of being overworked and overstressed. The symptoms include irritability, inability to focus, and constant need for distraction⁠—sound familiar? The WHY behind how it starts and the reason to slam on the brakes . . . [35:57].

Tune in and turn the volume up for a dose of inspiration and life lessons. You're never more than One Idea Away from a whole, new reality.

Revisiting Brain By Design with James Garrett

Read more
I have been talking to several clients recently about productivity, attention, focus, our expectations of ourselves and the feelings that come along with juggling all of the things - work, parenting, health, self-care, friendships, family, goals and plans. Worry, overwhelm, frustration and impatience are recurring themes.
So I thought it timely to revisit a conversation that has helped me with all of these things. In Season 2 of the Potential Psychology Podcast I interviewed James Garrett, the founder and CEO of Brain By Design - a US-based organisation that teaches strategies for getting more from your mind.
About JamesJames is a psychologist, a former academic, co-founder of a highly successful social venture and now host of The Deep Change Podcast. In this episode we discuss the science behind:
  • Why your focus and attention is like a battery that requires recharging.
  • How to get more done by working less
  • How to use your mind to start on difficult or unpleasant tasks
  • The importance of taking breaks for your productivity and creativity and why your brain doesn't know how to do this
  • Why the standard '8 hours at your desk' is a disaster for your effectiveness, innovation, happiness and wellbeing.
  • James's online programs and the science of productivity and wellbeing, and
  • How he reads one book per week!
