Hardwiring vs. Rewiring looks at the brain development process from the time of birth and the sensitive period of growth of the various parts of the brain that are responsible for the early childhood development skills such as their cognitive, language and communication, and social and emotional skills. Key skills that help shape the early habits and belief systems that are embedded as part of the subconscious mind.
This book exposes the need for proper nurturing and development of early childhood development skills and more importantly, provides key techniques and strategies gained from various empirical studies on “how to” properly develop these skills. I have endeavored to provide a proactive approach that hardwires the “right” mindset, skillset, and behaviors at an early age and becomes part of the subconscious as opposed to reactively rewiring our mindset, skillset, and behaviors. Especially since the rewiring process is more reactive and only tackles the symptoms as opposed to the true root cause.
The research highlighted in this book shows a strong parallel between the proper development of early childhood development skills and 21st-century skills, which are identified as cognitive, intrapersonal, and interpersonal skills. Thus, the reference to future 21st-century leaders, in particular, instilling the habits of lifelong learning and developing critical thinking skills which are essential in the development of 21st-century skills in the current industrial revolution (Industry 4.0).
