How does “chunking” improve brain efficiency

David Rock in his book “Your Brain At Work” states that smaller the information the prefontal cortex(processes thoughts , decisions etc.)is loaded with better the efficiency.

Chunking of information into manageable pieces results in efficient brain processing with less energy drainage.

“Prioritize Prioritizing” for most efficient use of your brain

David Rock in his book “Your Brain At Work” makes a mention of the fact that parts of the brain involved in thought related processing e.g problem solving , creativity make most use of energy e.g. glucose , oxygen.

As a result of this “Prefrontal Cortex” involved with this function needs to be used optimally once when most needed.

For this to happen meticulous white board planning needs to happen to determine the prioritized list of tasks to engage this part of the brain with.

Generally this planning should happen at times when we are least loaded e.g. early morning , late evening vefore bed.
