You're not at your best when you're stressed. In fact, your brain has evolved over millennia to release cortisol in stressful situations, inhibiting rational, logical thinking but potentially helping you survive, say, being attacked by a lion. Neuroscientist Daniel Levitin thinks there's a way to avoid making critical mistakes in stressful situations, when your thinking becomes clouded — the pre-mortem. "We all are going to fail now and then," he says. "The idea is to think ahead to what those failures might be."

He made some serious choices (of taking pictures of important documents, using a combination lock on house door) that would compromise security of his assets and information. This is not pre-mortem! This is like planting landmines for yourself and making it easy to get yourself into more stressful situations.
I get it... Treat it like a "Sport" if you will. Understand the way your opposition will defend against your offense, understand how there offense will attack your defence. Plan accordingly amd in conjunction with the "right and ideal" + be ready for possinle variables. Keep it moving!
One of the worst TED Talks I've seen. The only practical advice he gives is having a place to keep your keys, passport, wallet, etc. which, for a doctor and homeowner, should be second nature. I also don't understand why he droned on and on about his high cholesterol and how the side effects of medication could make it dangerous to take. What does that have to do with dealing with stressful situations? That part was totally irrelevant.
Full time job n caring for kid led to burn out in my last job... Pre-mortem seems like a good way to prevent burn-out in my next job..I wud like to hire a babysitter to pick kids from school few days a week so tht i can concentrate on getting my job done and allot time for workout etc.,
According to The NNT Group, statin drugs given for five years, in order to prevent heart disease in people who have no history of heart disease, is 104. That means that 104 people have to take statins in order to prevent one extra person from having a heart attack, not 300.

Ignoring the correctness of the title of the video. My approach is a bit different(btw I'm in no way qualified to object an idea proposed by a neuroscientist.).
I think ahead of the things that are most important in my life - health, health of my loved ones, my passion, and so on, in others words setting my priorities. So if a problem arises in my life, let's say I forgot my house keys in my house but I need to get in to get my car keys for something really important in my life. Then I think of the options I've, also remember that panicking doesn't help any situation, then take the best option as per the situation, if money is the priority at that point then I'd try to find the cheapest solution to the situation or if time is important then the quickest solution will do and I go on to do that. I feel this is better because we often can't predict what problem we may have in the future but we can control our attitude towards a problem, being calm and finding a solution is the best way through it.
Anyone happen to know the NNT for a wound flap surgery? I'm probably going to have one of those in the very near future, and while my doctor seems confident that that's the way to get me back to my normal life, I'd like to know what I'm getting into...
I have no idea what this has to do about stress, just bullshit about prescription drugs and how they can either help, or give you more issues from the side effects of the drug. Which most likely you will have more issues. And the whole time I'm just thinking well if high cholesterol is the issue just stop eating foods high in cholesterol like meat and dairy. A plantbased lifestyle will eliminate that issue. Do that and you won't need prescription drugs or a doctor. Save you a lot of damn money in the long run. But I mean doctors don't want you to know that because they can't make money off healthy people. 🤣🤣
This video is a waste of time. This would be a field day if these are examples of stress. Ever been in a life threatening situation? Ever had thousands stolen from you when unwell and vulnerable instead of people being decent. Some intelligent constructive information, otherwise please re-title the video and stop wasting peoples time, repeating the same thing over again.
This guy rattles on interminably as if unable to come to his point, tossing out useless facts that have nothing to do with staying calm. I don't really care about his stories, either, and most of these speakers don't seem to know how to use anecdotes effectively. But even when he does finally seem to find his point...it turns out it has nothing to do with the title of the video! Seriously? How boring, meandering...but funny, in a way, without meaning to be!
At work- My most difficult situation so far I guess is working with staff long distance /off shore who are millennials that doesn’t know /no initiative or patience to read instructions then send u back all wrong stuff end of the day and you have to fix all their mess by yourself since all staff gone home :(
Saying 1/300 did not get a heart attack is not the same as what he later claims, that the statin only lower the cholesterol in 1/300. He says 300 people need to take the drug for 1 year before 1 heart attack is prevented. Then he says 1/300 have a chance in lowering the cholesterol. He needs to ask himself, how many heart attacks is there in any population of 300 during a year (with increased cholesterol)? And in front of all, does the statin lower the cholesterol in only 1/300 or in more people? This should be very easy to check. His statment is thus meaningless and says nothing unfortunately.
Rising stress in society may be connected to the fact that everyone is contesting(on social media etc) PRETENDING that they are perfect and powerful yet inside they are terrified and dying of fear. The day we all *openly* accept how weak and sick we are, is the day we begin to change & heal society.
This talk proves neuroscientists are mere humans. Why didn't he keep the spare key somewhere in case of losing or leaving it somewhere else? I'm glad I don't have need to see neuroscientists. They are not very bright, eh? My parents taught me to be prepared always. I trained myself to think quickly and not to panic under extreme duress. I also trained myself to weigh pros and cons, and hope the best and expect the worst. The worst has not come yet in my life.

And why the Glaxo-Smth-Cline advert/sales pitch two thirds of the way in?
