You've probably experienced a few aha moments in your life. Moments where an idea for a new business or piece of art, or a solution to a sticky technical, relational, or philosophical problem, suddenly popped into your mind.What causes these proverbial light bulbs to go off over our heads? What's going on in your brain when you experience an insight? And can you do anything to encourage more "aha" moments?My guest has spent his career researching the answers to these questions. His name is John Kounios, and he's a professor of psychology and the author of the book The Eureka Factor: Aha Moments, Creative Insight, and the Brain. We begin our conversation discussing how researchers define what an insight is, and examples of how scientists and musicians have experienced them. John then walks us through the stages that lead up to getting an insight and explains what is going on in our brains right before and at the moment we experience one. We end our conversation discussing ways you can increase your chances of receiving insights, including the kind of environment and even color that encourages them most.Get the show notes at aom.is/eureka.

Garrett Gee is dad of “The Bucket List Family.” More than three years ago, Garrett and his wife, Jessica, sold nearly all of their belongings and set off to travel the world with their two small children. Originally, it was a trip planned for a few months or until they ran out of their $45K garage sale money.Instead, they turned into a family of travel journalists, visiting nearly 70 countries and capturing loyal followers along their journey: 1.5 million on Instagram and almost 600K on YouTube. To date, their travel adventure videos have garnered nearly 44 million views. They also added another child to their family during their travels, with all three, Dorothy, Manilla and Calihan, each having featured Instagram accounts and YouTube video series.Oh - and Garrett happens to be the co-founder of Scan, an app that Shark Tank passed on, but Snapchat bought for $54 million. Jus' sayin'.
