It's time for you can't just stop bigask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietlystubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and dreams. After encountering hundredsof hie achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers. I'vediscovered that many times their impact comes from the questions they ask asmuch as the actions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a questioneach and every day to reach your does. What Pavlovian response? Can I createfor myself to remember or inspire well? This is another really funquestion for me. I love this question because I like designing things in mylife that are going to trigger me to remember things with this Pavlovianresponse and I'll give you an example when my wife and I went to Egypt backin two thousand and ten two thousand and eleven- I forget, I think, twothousand and ten when we went to Egypt.

I knew I wanted to remember that tripfor the rest of my life, and so I thought how am I going to do this, so Ionly took one album with me on my ephone when we went- and I listened toit when we were on a boss on a plane, whatever we know during down time, Ijust constantly listen to this album so now any time I hear a song from theblack rose croolty album, I am somewhere in Egypt. I am on a bus goingto Abu Symbol, I'm I'm at the hotel overlooking thePyramids I'm somewhere in Egypt whenever I put that album on, and itwas probably the smartest thing I've ever done in my life was to just playthat album over and over again on that trip. So now I just instantly amtransported back to Egypt whenever I hear that album. So what can you do foryourself that you can? You can create this kind of response for somethingimportant to you that you want to remember, or maybe it's something youwant to use to inspire yourself. How...

...can you use music, a smell of food, whatever it isto inspire you or to help? You remember something you know remembering is morethan just about visual. All our senses come together to help us rememberthings and I think the sense of smell and and then audio, and I think andtaste I think those are more powerful than the visual. I mean we get so muchvisual information shoved in our brain every day that we don't always you knowthat doesn't trigger things like a smell will trigger something, sometimesI'll smell, something and be instantly transported somewhere back in time and but a lot of times. It can be asong for me that I'll get transported back to where I was the first time Iheard that song or or at a particular really impact ful point where I heardthat song. So what can you design for yourself so that... can take advantage of thisPavlovian response? I'd love to hear what you have to say about this one,because I think this is just a really cool question and I hope it inspiresyou as much as it does me.
