Ever wonder why you do things even though you know better?  Well, the part of the brain that makes you do that is called the Fast Brain (the hare).  It processes visual information and delivers feedback as quickly as possible resulting in generalized visual perceptions, may miss important changes and make mistakes.  It only takes 4/10 of a second for this part of the brain to rule your next decision or action.

We need to start engaging the Slow Brain (the tortoise) first.  It takes at least 1 second for the slow brain to react and even longer if you are tired.
