Hi everyone I’m JD Houvener and welcome to the bullet Today Show were you the inventor and entrepreneur get your daily dose of inspiration to make the world a better place okay have you guys been doing your time blocking from yesterday we talked about our time blocks and how we can actually plan ahead of time to say no and to make sure that we’re prioritizing our top projects first so if you haven’t been doing that check out previous episode and learned some more about that today ever and learn about starting the day and think about a study that I found dr. Nakamura put together over a series of a couple years he had Alzheimer’s patients and he studied 6,000 brains okay this is an MRI machine it’s the biggest study ever and it was actually able to conclude that the brain the physical brain is bigger in the morning okay so your challenge today is to use part of the study to use your big brain in the morning put your highest priority projects first thing in the morning schedule time block it out and and set the time apart so you can get to work on your hardest most difficult brain intensive projects early in the day the pad we’re gonna look at today is of course brain related so take a look at it this invention is a it’s a way to monitor and measure specific parts of the brain for brain surgery and it’s using a method that’s using magnets and for nuclear medicine that’s what it’s called and so it’s interesting about this patent I want you to look at specific detail and as it’s required under 37 CFR 1.71 in the specification that in the written description they’ve got a bill describe the invention in such a way that an inventor or someone like the inventor right this is the person of ordinary skill in the art needs to be able to understand the invention and be able to make it on their own just from the writings and the in the drawings what I liked a lot was this figure one and I have a look at it it shows the arrangement with robotic arms and how the imaging would take place and then this figure it’s got this schematic that shows flowcharts and how the data moves right this invention then the way is claimed isn’t really about the mechanics or the apparatus it’s more about how the data is gathered and I was able to manipulate and correct the measurements that the system is making to make sure that it’s as precise as possible so that the 3d brain image to think that it gets is able to put forward the specific coordinates and adjust for any kind of mechanical error all right so even if you’re not doing brain surgery or anything quite that technical your product is important and so I want you to make sure you’re putting your projects first early in the day when your brain is literally bigger due to hydration it’s a lot of factors coming together but I found it successful in my life to put the big heavy head your projects right up front knock them out and the rest of the days downhill thanks for tuning in to this version of the bold today’s show I’m your host JD Houvener have a great day and go big go bold
