Brain processing is reduced by half – awareness is shut down
Our complex digital world means our senses are constantly bombarded from all directions – and has caused Busy Brain Syndrome (BB). BB means the brain runs out of processing bandwidth causing people to increasingly operate on ‘autopilot’. BB manifests as lack of focus, poor ability to pay attention, constant distraction, relentless ‘mind stories’ (monkey mind)’, stress, overload, overwhelm, not getting things done, rampant political correctness because no one wants to be ‘seen to be out of control’.
The unconscious brain takes over – rules, procedures are ignored
BB, (not the person) is the root cause of human factor safety and cybersecurity breaches, poor behaviours, silo mentality, miscommunication, avoidance behaviours and decision paralysis.
