A note for Lesson no. 4, "Your Brain Predicts (Almost) Everything You Do," in Seven and a Half Lessons About the Brain by Lisa Feldman Barrett.

The phrase "get your butterflies flying in formation" comes from Grandmaster Joe Esposito, the head of my daughter's karate school. He gave her this advice just before she tested for her black belt when she was 12 years old.
