Harvard Asst. Professor of Psychiatry — Dr. Srini Pillay — On The Power Of The Unfocused Mind and Productivity – Part 2 of 2

Today I have a very special guest Dr. Srini Pillay — an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School. He is known for combining the head and the heart (literally and figuratively) in an approach to personal development and goal mastery that blends science, spirituality to combat the stresses by high-achieving people in academia, in business and in life. Now, Srini has a talent for translating fairly complex principles around medicine and Psychiatry into a pedestrian in everyday language. That’s is one of his many skills. He’s the author of quite a few books, the most recent one of which is called Tinker Dabble Doodle Try which is all about unlocking the power of the unfocused mind.
