But clinical benefits have arrived more slowly than the initial hype suggested. This is mainly because the human genome actually works in a much more complex way than predicted by the late-20th-century model. Twenty-first-century research shows that we have only 21,000 genes, one-fifth of the number predicted when the project started, and that just 1.5 per cent of the genome consists of conventional protein-coding genes. Efforts are under way to understand the vital regulatory and other functions of the non-coding regions of the genome, once dismissed wrongly as “junk DNA”. Science’s 10 hottest fields

Live-with’s are different from mantras in that you only use one at a time (unless you really like a challenge!) and you’re not repeating them to yourself over and over.

Concerning one of my favorite live-with’s: ‘Ask Dumb Questions‘, Michael explains, “The word ‘dumb’ can allow you to get beyond the fears and nattering of your Inner Voice of Judgment (VOJ) that tells you not to ask questions when they actually should be asked. 7-Day Thought Challenges (Live-With’s)
