about your wonder conductor wonder conductor,

Sarah Nally

innovation & design Some people seem to have a knack for living an incredible life. Problems? “Bring them on,” they say. Clarity? They’re pinpointing solutions before ordinary people have read the question. Creativity? Brainstorming out of the box solutions that seem to wow not only themselves, but everyone around them. The skills of clarity, creativity, innovation and problem solving are just that, skills. Not just a “maybe they’re born with it” mystery. They can be taught, and they can be used to design the type of life you really want to be living. This journal has been designed to help you to develop and apply a design thinking mindset, used by leading companies around the world, to unleash your inner wonder, navigate big life decisions, build and maintain good habits and get results that match your ambition. Play with the concepts embedded here to develop a greater sense of self awareness and confidence, know how to play to your strengths with positivity, all with a renewed mindset that knows how to solve any problem. It’s time to start living your best life.

thinking coach + spiritual badass.

Sarah Nally calls herself the ‘Wonder Conductor’. You see, people kept trying to figure out what she “did”, and this title arose as the most appropriate way to describe what she does in the world. Sarah’s a serial entrepreneur and has founded The Wonder Tribe, a consultancy created to help organisations open minds for transformational change; Sienna Baby, a baby shoe company and is the co-founder of Nurture Her, Island in a Box and Wonder & Wander. She’s also a non-executive founder of Kitty Pay; a social payments app launching this year. She has a Bbus HR/Psych from Monash University and a litter of certificates ranging from Hypnotherapy, Neuropsychology, Reiki, NLP to Design Thinking; Change Management and Life Coaching. Her passion? First and foremost are her kids Sienna and Stella. Next comes helping people find their wonder. But, what is wonder? It’s that feeling of awe! Like when a kid sees a butterfly for the first time. Sarah believes every human has a unique soul signature to activate in their business and life. She enjoys helping people discover their ‘special something’ and unleash it on the world.

INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION

\ Before you innovate your business, the culture… we have to start with YOU.

You can’t cook up a storm in a dirty kitchen, so before we get deep into innovation and shaping culture, we deep dive into understanding self so that we can create sustainable shifts inside and out.

03 | What stories do you tell yourself about yourself?

Storytelling: sarah’s story... Meet Sarah! She is a Wonder Conductor and life scientist - she experiments with life. She has lived in Hobart, Sydney and Melbourne. She was a little depressed at school (but didn’t know it). She was great at art and chess and science and technology. She went to Monash and got a degree in Business. She got stressed at work. She had a mini stroke. She was diagnosed with anxiety. She found meditation through hypnosis and deep inner happiness. She is a qualified hypnotherapist, reiki and NLP master. She has 2 little girls, Sienna and Stella who are the wisest and most wondrous souls. She co-founded Wired for Wonder (like Ted only cooler), The Wonder Tribe, Nurture Her and Wonder & Wander. She is into woo woo stuff and believes that the universe has your back. She is a Microsoft Ambassador. She experiments with flexibility and working with kids. She started a shoe company with $100. She now writes, curates, consults, coaches and produces mind altering events. She puts her crystals out with the full moon and writes intentions and goals with every new and full moon. She still loves chess and science and art and technology. She is happy and joyful (when she gets enough sleep).

TO WONDER OR NOT TO WONDER?

When was the last time you… 1 | Looked past page 1 of the search results? 2 | Googled the opposite of what you’re trying to find? 3 | Looked up something you don’t believe in?

-------------------------------------------Wonder Such a beautiful hopeful, positive word! My quest for wonder has led me through more pain, tough decisions, judgement and growth than anticipated. I thought chasing wonder was going to be all rainbows and unicorns - it turns out, when searching for wonder, polarity and contrast are enlightening tools along the journey.

Wondering

PURPOSE Using strengths to serve others. TRANCENDENCE Lifting above the hustle and bussle every day for at least 1 minute to connect with the environment. STORYTELLING Narrative about self to others - remember you are the author. Emily Estahani Smith believes there is more to life than being happy….

“Happiness is a state of comfort and ease, feeling good in the moment. Meaning is belonging to and saving something bigger than self, where something deeper is activated within.”

Why Wonder?

Science logic facts truth

wonder

,

Wondering is about digging a little deeper. It is about going beyond page 1 in google. It is about looking for MEANING and Connecting Seemingly Disparate Concepts and Ideas. WONDERING is about understanding the polarity of Words, Situations, Scenarios, Experiences. When we WONDER – we learn, we expand, we grow.

BELONGING In a relationship where you are values for who you are at your core, not what you do.

DESIGN THINKING

DESIGN THINKING

Reality of design thinking

Design Thinking is a methodology used by designers to solve complex problems, and find desirable solutions for clients. A design mindset is not problem-focused, it’s solution focused and action oriented towards creating a preferred future.

1 | What are some of the biggest issues in your life right now?

Interpret, ideate, experiment, play, fail, learn, enjoy the process.

Design thinking as a mindset

Who is your customer? What are they thinking, feeling, seeing and doing? What problems are you trying to solve? What problem are you REALLY trying to solve? NO, really?

Why is mindset important in design thinking? Bias is one of the greatest inhibitors for innovation. We can overcome bias through awareness and process. Our bias shapes our perception and understanding. We can use Design Thinking as a process to keep digging deeper to get to the heart of the matter and make sure we are solving the right problem at the right time.

Neuroplasticity The ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning or experience or following injury.

Opening your mind for transformational change 1964 the first freestanding neuroscience department (then called psychobiology) was founded at the University of California, and only in the 20 years we have truly started to map and understand modern neuroscience and the inner workings of our minds.

“Design thinking can be described as a discipline that uses the designer’s sensibility and methods to match people’s needs with what is technologically feasible and what a viable business strategy can convert into customer value and market opportunity.”

dogmatism and closed mindset

s

rain b i r u o Y

A recent study by neuroscientists showed that religious and non religious dogmatic thinkers have two brain networks -- one for empathy and one for analytic thinking -- that are in tension with each other. In healthy people, their thought process cycles between the two, choosing the appropriate network for different issues they consider.

a

su r per e t u comp AND YOUR SELF-TALK is the program IT WILL RUN. – Jim Kwik

But in the religious dogmatist’s mind, the empathetic network appears to dominate while in the nonreligious dogmatist’s mind, the analytic network appears to rule. While the studies examined how differences in worldview of the religious vs. the nonreligious influence dogmatism, the research is broadly applicable, the researchers say. Dogmatism applies to any core beliefs, from eating habits -- whether to be a vegan, vegetarian or omnivore -- to political opinions and beliefs about evolution and climate change.

creativity and mindset We are all creative. Right vs Left Over 40 areas of the brain come together, maybe as many as 90. Creativity can be taught – practice to get more of it. Bring together seemingly disparate concepts and ideas – strawberries and technology, paint and accounting. Inspiration is everywhere, share it!

technology and the brain Humans must continually process vast amounts of incoming sensory information, requiring the brain to efficiently determine which stimuli require attention or memory encoding. Given limited resources, the ability to detect and direct attention to novel stimuli has substantial adaptive value. Novelty detection is supported by a coordinated network of brain regions in the medial temporal lobe, visual, parietal and prefrontal cortices, and the dopamine midbrain.

self limiting beliefs Limiting beliefs are those which constrain us in some way. Just by believing them, we do not think, do or say the things that they inhibit. And in doing so we impoverish our lives. ... Limiting beliefs are often about our selves and our self-identity. The beliefs may also be about other people and the world in general.

Overcoming /rewiring Self limiting beliefs Name the assholes... Use the ancient art of sentence completion to have your mind fill in the blank. ... Face Your Demons. Now under each of your limiting beliefs you want to write 3-5 ‘reasons why’ you fear those things. ... Punch Your Demons In The Face. ... Write Your New Empowered Belief. ... Repeat As Needed.

Examples of self limiting beliefs I am not worthy I am not smart enough I am not good looking enough I don’t deserve it I don’t have enough…. (time, support, money etc) There isn’t enough for everyone It is not spiritual or good to have a lot of money I don’t trust myself I can’t handle it I am going to fail so why bother trying…

Long time psychotherapist Dr. Ron Alexander, author of Wise Mind, Open Mind, speaks of mind strength, or the resiliency, efficacy and emotional intelligence that arise as we begin the process of controlling our mind. Mind strength is one of the most empowering tools we can employ to impact and improve all aspects of life.

mondfulness, meditation, hypnosis... • One week of training (2–3 h) • Increased efficiency in executive attention • Improved mood • Reduced stress hormone following a meditation session • Improved immunoreacivity following a meditation session • Improved parasympathetic activity • Improved brain activity and connectivity in self-control networks • One month of training (10–11 h) • Further improvements of executive attention • Improved alertness • Improved mood • Reduced stress hormone at baseline • Improved immunoreactivity at baseline • Induced white matter changes in self-control networks (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3419378/)

There are five major categories of brain waves, each corresponding to different activities. Meditation enables us to move from higher frequency brain waves to lower frequency, which activates different areas in the brain. • Slower wavelengths • More time between thoughts • More opportunity to choose which thoughts you invest in and what actions you take • Mind control • Take over the world

MINDSET

meditation and hypnosis Every part of your body vibrates to its own rhythm. Your brain has a unique set of brain waves. In neuroscience, there are five distinct brain wave frequencies, namely Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta and the lesser known Gamma. Learning mind control at the deeper states of consciousness opens you up to the world of your subconscious mind. Each frequency, measured in cycles per second (Hz), has its own set of characteristics representing a specific level of brain activity and hence a unique state of consciousness.

MINDSET

Beta (12-30Hz) Beta brain waves are associated with normal waking consciousness and a heightened state of alertness, logic and critical reasoning. As you go about your daily activities you are at Beta. Although important for effectively functioning in everyday life, higher Beta levels translate into stress, anxiety and restlessness. With the majority of adults primarily operating at Beta during their waking hours it is little wonder that stress is todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most common health problem. The voice of Beta is the little nagging chatterbox of your inner critic, which becomes louder and more relentless the higher you go in the range.

Things I am doing before, after or during BETA?

making waves Alpha (7.5-12Hz) Alpha brain waves are present in deep relaxation with the eyes usually closed and while daydreaming. The relaxed detached awareness achieved during light meditation is characteristic of Alpha and is optimal for programming your mind for success. Alpha heightens your imagination, visualization, memory, learning and concentration. It lies at the base of your conscious awareness and is the gateway to your subconscious mind. The renowned Silva Method by Jose Silva is premised on the power of Alpha. The voice of Alpha is your intuition, which becomes clearer and more profound the closer you get to 7.5Hz. Things I am doing before, after or during ALPHA?

MINDSET

Theta (4-7.5Hz) Theta brain waves are present during deep meditation and light sleep, including the REM dream state. Theta is the realm of your subconscious mind. It is also known as the twilight state as it is normally only momentarily experienced as you drift off to sleep (from Alpha) and arise from deep sleep (from Delta). A sense of deep spiritual connection and oneness with the Universe can be experienced at Theta. Vivid visualizations, great inspiration, profound creativity, exceptional insight as well as your mindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most deep-seated programs are all at Theta. The voice of Theta is silence. Things I am doing before, after or during THETA?

MINDSET

Gamma (30-100Hz) The most recently discovered range is Gamma which is the fastest in frequency at above 40Hz (some researchers do not distinguish Beta from Gamma waves). Although little is known about this state of mind, initial research shows Gamma waves are associated with bursts of insight and high-level information processing. In a nutshell, there are five major brain wave ranges: Beta (12-30Hz) is present in normal waking consciousness and is heightened during times of stress; the Alpha brain wave (7.5-14Hz) in deep relaxation; Theta (4-7.5Hz) in meditation and light sleep; and the slowest, Delta (0.5-4Hz) in deep dreamless sleep and transcendental meditation. The less recognised Gamma is fastest (above 40Hz) and associated with sudden insight. The optimal level for visualization is the Alpha-Theta Border at 7-8Hz. It is the gateway to your subconscious mind.

(Source: Tania Kotsos of www.mind-your-reality.com)

Delta (0.5-4Hz) The Delta frequency is the slowest and is present in deep, dreamless sleep and in very deep, transcendental meditation where awareness is completely detached. Delta is the realm of your unconscious mind. It is the gateway to the Universal mind and the collective unconscious whereby information received is otherwise unavailable at the conscious level. Delta is associated with deep healing and regeneration, underlining the importance of deep sleep to the healing process. Things I am doing before, after or during DELTA?

Transitioning The Alpha-Theta border, from 7 to 8Hz, is the optimal range for visualization, mind programming and using the creative power of your mind. It is the mental state at which you consciously create your reality. At this frequency of mind control you are conscious of your surroundings but your body is in deep relaxation. To learn how to access this level of mind at will you must first learn how to relax.

7 Habits of Highly Healthy Brains ONE: SLEEP A good night sleep every night should be a priority, not a luxury. Sleep is overlooked, underappreciated, and the number one, fundamental bedrock of good health. Sleep deprivation (even a few hours a night) impacts cognition (thinking), mood, memory and learning and leads to chronic disease. Sleep is essential for consolidating memories and for draining waste products from the brain. Not only do we under-sleep, we under-consume natural light during the day and over-consume artificial light at night leaving our natural circadian rhythms, hormones and immune systems dysregulated. Short afternoon naps consolidate memory, spark creativity and smooth your rough emotional edges (no guru, course or app required!).

TWO: MOVE The best exercise for your brain is physical exercise. Daily exercise increases blood flow to the brain. Exercise triggers the release of brain derived neurotophic factor (BDNF), which promotes neuronal growth and survival, reduces inflammation, and supports the formation of long-term memories. Exercise reduces the risk of dementia (and other chronic lifestyle diseases), acts as an anti-depressant, and regulates mood. Our brains evolved to support bodies that move through, make sense of, and respond to the natural world around us. A simple walk outdoors gets you away from digital devices and into nature. You’ll do your best thinking when walking.

THREE: NOURISH A healthy brain requires a healthy well-nourished body. Research points towards a Mediterraneanbased diet of mostly plants (vegetables, fruit and legumes), fish, some meat, olive oil and nuts as optimal nourishment for brain health. Wine and coffee in moderation (yes, really!) prevent cognitive decline, memory loss and protect against dementia (Plus, the little pleasures in life are important too!).

MINDSET

FIVE: CONNECT We are born as social animals and have a fundamental need for human warmth and connection. Having supportive friends, family and social connections helps you live longer, happier and healthier. Socialising reduces the harmful effects of stress and requires many complex cognitive functions such as thinking, feeling, sensing, reasoning and intuition. Loneliness and social isolation have comparable impacts on health and survival as smoking.

SIX: CHALLENGE Keep your brain mentally active. Adults who regularly challenge their minds and stay mentally active throughout life have healthier brains and are less likely to develop dementia. It’s thought ongoing education and mentally challenging work build cognitive reserve (the capacity to cope better and keep working properly if any brain cells are damaged or die). Choose mentally challenging activities that you can practice regularly, that are reasonably complex and that take you out of your cognitive comfort zone. Try activities that combine mental, social and physical challenges.

SEVEN: BELIEVE Seek out your purpose in life. Find your north star, your passion, your bliss, your inner voice, your wisdom, your calling. Whatever you call it. Research has found that people who score high on life purpose live longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives. Do extraordinary things! Set fantastic, passionate goals and work like crazy to achieve them. Find your place of flow—that sweet spot where you so intensely and completely focus on the present moment and the task at hand and that time passes effortlessly. Some say flow is the point of life. (Source: Dr Sarah McKay, The Neuroscience Academy)

FOUR: CALM Find your moment of calm. Not all stress is bad, but chronic stress, especially life events that are out of our control, can change the wiring of our brains. Too much cortisol (a stress hormone) prevents the birth of new neurons and causes the hippocampus (the brain structure involved in learning and memory) to shrink, reducing your powers of learning and memory. To de-stress find your place or moment of calm. Do something pleasurable — meditate, practice mindfulness, walk, or nap. The most pleasure is to be found in doing something you’re reasonably good at and that also poses some degree of challenge.

Video and Storytelling… “Marketing by interrupting people isn’t cost-effective anymore. You can’t afford to seek out people and send them unwanted marketing messages, in large groups, and hope that some will send you money. Instead, the future belongs to marketers who establish a foundation and process where interested people can market to each other. Ignite consumer networks and then get out of the way and let them talk.”

– Seth Godin

When making a project video, creators should break away from the norm of sitting in front of the camera and asking for cash. Instead, it’s worth making a video that is story-driven. It will have the potential to catch on a lot faster as viewers will connect on a more intuitive, human level. Then it will be shared. Again, again, and again. Authenticity Authenticity is highly valued: On the whole, we don’t like or trust people who come across as phony and false. Not surprisingly, we avoid such people. We seek friends and colleagues who are authentic. Authenticity is important, but what exactly do we mean by the term? Often we judge a person’s authenticity by the passion and commitment they have for what they say and do. For sure, part of being authentic is standing up for what you believe in and speaking the truth as it seems to you, even if it is not what others want to hear. However, the question is, authentic to what? People can be committed to and passionate about lots of things, but this by itself is not enough. Authenticity is more than when someone believes in what they say or acts in a way that is consistent with their beliefs. An inauthentic person is equally able to stand up and say what they truly believe. We ought not to judge authenticity purely by the passion a person has for what they say. The more important part of the authenticity question is to look at the character of the person. What’s behind what they say? How can we be more authentic? Humanistic psychologists would say that by definition, authentic people possess a number of common characteristics that show they are psychologically mature and fully functioning as human beings. They... • Have realistic perceptions of reality. • Are accepting of themselves and of other people. • Are thoughtful. • Have a non-hostile sense of humor. • Are able to express their emotions freely and clearly. • Are open to learning from their mistakes. • Understand their motivations.

INSTINCT AND INTUITION

INSTINCT AND INTUITION

Instinct and Intuition Why we stopped trusting our insticts and Intuition War + Scarcity Mindset has armed our DNA with all sorts of programs to keep us safe… and ignore our instincts and intuition. We can rewire our thinking and retune our instincts with practice. Scholars have clarified their ideas about instincts as outlined below: After many long years of study, the famous psychologist James Drever classified instincts into 32 kinds which, according to him, have a profound impact upon the individual’s behaviour. Thorndike has classified instincts more simply into two classes- individual and social. In his theory, the individual instincts include obtaining food, protecting oneself, searching for shelter, etc., whereas the social instincts include reproduction, communal living, etc. On these two bases, he has further classified instincts into 100 types, but then he reduced the number of categories to 40. Bernard in his ‘A Study of Social Psychology’ classified instincts into 100 kinds. James Drever, in his work ‘Instinct in Man’ classified human instincts into two classes or kinds: a. Appetitive. b. Reactive. How would you describe your thinking style?

Why We React/Act Defining instincts as unlearned motives Woodworth R.S. proposes a three-fold classification as follows: 1 | Response to Organic Needs: Thirst, Hunger, Shrinking from injury, fatigue, sleep escape. 2 | Response to Other Persons: Gregariousness, mating, parental instincts, aggression. 3 | Non-Specific or Play Instincts: Locomotion, Vocationalization, Laughter, Manipulation, Self-assertion, Submission, Social motive, etc.

INSTINCT AND INTUITION

Consciously tuning our instincts

INSTINCT AND INTUITION

In order to avoid problems such as loneliness, depression, and anxiety, it is important for people to feel loved and accepted by other people. Personal relationships with friends, family, and lovers play an important role, as does involvement in other groups that might include religious groups, sports teams, book clubs, and other group activities.

Psychological needs The basic physiological needs are probably fairly apparent—these include the things that are vital to our survival. Some examples of the physiological needs include: • Food • Water • Breathing • Homeostasis In addition to the basic requirements of nutrition, air and temperature regulation, the physiological needs also include such things as shelter and clothing. Maslow also included sexual reproduction in this level of the hierarchy of needs since it is essential to the survival and propagation of the species.

Esteem Needs At this point, it becomes increasingly important to gain the respect and appreciation of others. People have a need to accomplish things and then have their efforts recognized. In addition to the need for feelings of accomplishment and prestige, the esteem needs include such things as self-esteem and personal worth. People need to sense that they are valued and by others and feel that they are making a contribution to the world. Participation in professional activities, academic accomplishments, athletic or team participation, and personal hobbies can all play a role in fulfilling the esteem needs.

Security and Safety Needs

People who are able to satisfy the esteem needs by achieving good self-esteem and the recognition of others tend to feel confident in their abilities. Those who lack self-esteem and the respect of others can develop feelings of inferiority. Together, the esteem and social levels make up what is known as the psychological needs of the hierarchy.

As we move up to the second level of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, the requirements start to become a bit more complex. At this level, the needs for security and safety become primary. People want control and order in their lives, so this need for safety and security contributes largely to behaviors at this level.

Self Actualising needs

Some of the basic security and safety needs include: - Financial security - Heath and wellness - Safety against accidents and injury Finding a job, obtaining health insurance and health care, contributing money to a savings account, and moving into a safer neighborhood are all examples of actions motivated by the security and safety needs. Together, the safety and physiological levels of the hierarchy make up what is often referred to as the basic needs.

At the very peak of Maslow’s hierarchy are the self-actualization needs. “What a man can be, he must be,” Maslow explained, referring to the need people have to achieve their full potential as human beings. According to Maslow’s definition of self-actualization:

“It may be loosely described as the full use and exploitation of talents, capabilities, potentialities, etc. Such people seem to be fulfilling themselves and to be doing the best that they are capable of doing... They are people who have developed or are developing to the full stature of which they capable.” Self-actualizing people are self-aware, concerned with personal growth, less concerned with the opinions of others, and interested fulfilling their potential.

Social Needs The social needs in Maslow’s hierarchy include such things as love, acceptance and belonging. At this level, the need for emotional relationships drives human behavior. Some of the things that satisfy this need include: • Friendships • Romantic attachments • Family • Social groups • Community groups • Churches and religious organizations

NOTES

The pink and blue represents feminine and masculine coming together; polarity, contrast, interdependence. It shows how when we lean in to contrast and experience, we realise as a tribe we grow together exponentially. We all have an inner Wander that loves to explore; ask questions, be intrigued, look outside, walk along uncharted paths, peek around corners, feel the new, try, be and jump to new heights, we climb, we dive we fly to see what is possible. We all have Wonder inside. The deep inner wisdom that allows us to see the world differently and experience things like sunsets, butterflies, your childs first step... when we wander we stumble across these magical moments, the moments we can explain in words that just happen, wonder is a state of feeling but also a state of being. As Wonder & Wander we see this as an interdependent relationship that leans into one another never falling to deep, never pushing so hard that neither one can support the other nor climbing high without the other. They are in sync together and apart, far or close they move in a frequency that communicates and understand each other like no other. Wonder (Sarah) and Wander (Steve) met and discovered they had more in common than just entrepreneurial ventures and event production experience... they both embraced the abstract and different and enjoyed exploring the planet seeking connections in the mundane, expanding mindsets, making ripples of change in the world and learning/striving to be better every single day. Between them they have build over a dozen successful businesses and produced dozens of events for over 30,000 people in countries all over the world. They are passionate event organisers and innovation experts with a flair for creating experiences that touch peoples hearts, minds and lives. They are motivated to live a life full of wonder and wander and want to inspire others to do the same. To take the road less travelled. To follow their hearts. To be courageous and take risks. To wonder & wander.
