GET MORE TIME SERIES #13: Can You Say No?

Why do we abuse ourselves by doing things that do not feed us? Why do we allow others to influence us into doing things that we just don’t wanna do? We waste so much of our lives living a life that is not ours, doing things that aren’t us. We have all had them, the infamous “bosshole”. You know, that boss who expects you to do everything at any time and done to perfection. Perhaps they bully…

GET MORE TIME SERIES #12: Automaticity Rules!

“Automaticity is the ability to do things without occupying the mind with the low-level details required, allowing it to become an automatic response pattern or habit. It is usually the result of learning, repetition, and practice” – Wikipedia Automaticity saves energy because it does not require the use of your prefrontal cortex, the part of your brain that consumes 25% of your total energy.

Two Is Better Than One

Get More Time Series #11 We often waste a lot of our time doing things that could be combined. Instead of driving to work; take public transit and read.

I Can’t Vs. I Won’t

Get More Time Series #9 What if every time you said you can’t, you instead replaced it with “I won’t”. Change “I can’t lose weight because I can’t move like I did when I was younger.” to “ I won’t lose weight because I am not willing to take a small walk every night until I can move.”. Change “I can’t get a better job because I don’t have the experience to get one.” to…

GET MORE TIME SERIES #8: Throwing Up The Barriers

Don’t we put up barriers every time we dream of something big? I don’t have enough money. I don’t have enough people. I don’t have enough patience. I don’t have enough time. I just can’t-do it. We waste so much energy telling ourselves that we cannot do something that if we channeled it correctly, we would probably have it done! We live our lives by constantly creating barriers that limit our success. Excuses that we…

GET MORE TIME SERIES #7: Emotional Checks

Unlike the animal kingdom who are not self-aware, we humans can be our worst enemy by creating emotions that are not really warranted. We create anger when we are sad and we create doubt when we are happy. When we become introspective, we get confused as we cannot get away from the emotion that we think we feel. This self-consuming emotional storm festers until we can barely function and we lash out, or worse, shut…
