Brain Fog Can Cripple Your Business

Tom Corley boats - crop

When your brain is foggy, you cannot think clearly, you make poor decisions, your memory suffers and things slip through the cracks that can damage your career and ability to make money.

Common Causes of Brain Fog:

  • Multi-Tasking: Constantly shifting from one task to another taxes the brain. Multi-tasking demands an enormous amount of glucose (brain fuel). When that fuel is depleted the brain slows down – you feel tired and foggy.
  • Stress: When you are under stress, this too depletes the stores of glucose found throughout the body.
  • Eating Junk: Eating too much junk food, processed food, trans fats, dairy products and foods containing vegetable oils damages your mitochondria, which must convert that food into glucose and then into ATP (fuel for the body).
  • Alcohol Overload: Drinking too much alcohol damages dendrites. Dendrites are the part of every brain cell that receives signals from other brain cells. When you drink too much alcohol, it prevents your brain cells from communicating with each other.
  • Sleep Deprivation: Lack of adequate sleep leads to poor decision-making, emotional outbursts, increased stress and changes your personality.

The self-made millionaires in my Rich Habits study developed habits that not only helped clear away the brain fog, but improved their cognitive abilities:

  • Focus: Self-made millionaires focus on one task at a time. They did not multi-task.
  • Healthy Eating: Self-made millionaires eat healthy, nutritious food. Two out of three meals are vegetables, fruits (not too sweet) and healthy fats, high in HDL (good cholesterol).
  • De-Stress: Self-made millionaires de-stress by meditating, exercising, taking a nap, closing their eyes for a few minutes, listening to relaxing music, or any number of other things that put them into a relaxed state.
  • Adequate Sleep: Self-made millionaires get 6-8 hours of sleep every night. You need at least four cycles of sleep a night. That is the minimum. Each sleep cycle lasts about 90 minutes. So, at a minimum, you need about six hours of sleep every day. Five sleep cycles is best and help optimize brain performance.

Brain Fog creeps up on you over time. Symptoms are forgetfulness, indecision, poor decisions, anger, anxiety and weight gain. If you want to succeed you need to take care of your brain. Brain Fog will derail you from success and could cripple your business or your career.

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit,, India TV, Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money,,, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider,, and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
