Get It Right By Seeing Where You Go Wrong

This morning I had a list of four sizable items to accomplish. I knew it was an ambitious plan, but I tackled the day with confidence. I was determined to be a single-minded machine of efficiency, slaying tasks with unparalleled gusto. I started early, but it didn’t matter. As I write, it’s mid-afternoon and not one item has been fully accomplished.

This has happened before.

What goes astray? I usually notice something interesting in what I’m doing and decide to delve deeper, hoping to enhance my understanding or perhaps uncover a new connection. When successful, impromptu rabbit-hole journeys make solutions creative and ideas original. Unfortunately, not every trip ends in a moment of eureka. Some are just dead ends… Read More

Show Me How to Love Myself—a Devotion

sourced from:

Show me how to love myself truly and entirely.

Show me how to eat, sleep, and move my body
for nourishment, restoration, celebration.
Show me how to embody everything that is my joy.

Face me toward my Soul
my innocence,
my beauty,
my strength,
my gifts.

Show me what I knew before I took on the veils of human form.
Show me who I am with no attachments, and who I am fulfilled.

Rinse comparison from my psyche,
lift my gaze to my Higher Self.
On the dark days, just remind me that I am a good person
and that I was chosen to be here.
Please affirm that I am valued regardless of my productivity or my past.

Help me notice how my Loving shows up in everyday doings.
Help me see how I make a positive difference to the atmosphere of Life itself.
Show me how to revel in my Divine qualities
and to give them generously to the world.

Support me to make empowered choices

The Self Improvement Blog | Self Esteem | Self Confidence

Since the rise of civilization, our ancestors tried to clear up the confusion about existence. Leaving no stone unturned is not a guarantee for getting to the bottom of this mystery. Over the course of thousands of years, notable figures from the past exerted themselves to break the spell of ignorance.

By quoting the famous phrase of Albert Camus, you’ll get a glimpse of what eminent personalities tried to convey:

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”

Hitting the nail on the head as a process proved to an arduous journey or an adventure that not everyone had the guts to embark upon.

But Will It Sell?

When to Discard Bad Product Ideas

Will this idea that you are considering lead to a product that sells? This is the hardest question you and your colleagues will ask yourselves every day. There isn’t always an easy answer.

Certainly you can easily dismiss the most outlandish product concepts, say a restaurant chain selling freshly-prepared pizza that people then take and actually bake at home. But you could miss out on the next Papa Murphy’s. You can outright reject product ideas that have already proven to be blunders for other firms in real time, like Apple’s Newton. But you could miss out on the next iPhone.

Even a simple extension of your existing product line may not work out. Reality television producers can easily point to cable network A&E’s struggle to… Read More

How to Stop Wanting to Be Thinner, Even If You’re Ambitious

sourced from:

“How pleasant is the day when we give up striving to be young or slender. ‘Thank God!’ we say, ‘those illusions are gone.’” ~Alain de Botton

Are you high functioning at school, college, or in your career, but dysfunctional with food? I was.

I’ve always been ambitious. I see things, and I wanna do them too, even better!

It’s a powerful trait, but unruly—like living with a big dog. Sometimes it strains on its leash and pulls you along further than you thought you’d go. And sometimes it knocks you onto the carpet and stands over you, panting, with its balls in your face.

That’s what happened when I got ambitious about getting thin—it floored me.

I tried to mold myself into someone who’d look good in leather pants,… Read More

Jet lag isn’t exclusive to long-distance travel. Rather, the phenomenon is characterized by the change in our sleep/wake cycle. Similar to how jet lag is often caused by a change in sleep pattern due to different time zones, social jet lag is caused by a change in sleep pattern as a result of having different sleep schedules throughout the week. This is particularly common when many of us spend the weekends catching up on sleep or any activity that we haven’t got around to on weekdays.

While such a shift allows you to fulfill your agenda, it can… Read More
