#37 Health Blog – The Fast Continues

Good Morning!

Today is the 24 to 48 hour leg of the fasting session.

I was a bit groggy when I woke this morning, as expected.  My old friend, coffee will help me out.

All I can say right now is that being able to still have
coffee while fasting, even if it’s plain, helps set the day off on the right food.  I don’t need it of course, but it sure makes
the morning nice.… Read More “#37 Health Blog – The Fast Continues”

#36 Let’s Figure Out This Public Speaking Thing

Good Morning!

I heard something great this morning.

“Being able to communicate is your right.”

Eric Edmeades

For my personal growth session this morning I wanted to listen to a talk about effective speaking. I found a two-part series titled “How To Become A Master In The Art of Public Speaking” given by Eric Edmeades for Mind Valley. I got a lot more than I expected from watching these, and I’ll be watching them again soon.… Read More “#36 Let’s Figure Out This Public Speaking Thing”

#35 Health Blog – Fasting Is The New Low-Fat

Good Morning!

Fasting is the new low-fat diet, except it’s cheaper, easier, and it tastes better. But the kicker is that it’s not new at all.  It’s been used for thousands of years.

Why fasting?

Oh man, what a loaded question.

I’ve decided to start a regular fasting regimen because it
is way easier figure out what not to eat than what to eat, which is nothing.… Read More “#35 Health Blog – Fasting Is The New Low-Fat”

#34 The Paradox of Self-Improvement

Good Morning!

I’ve been meaning to do another water fast.  Yes, that’s when you abstain from eating food.  Completing the first water-fast taught me a few things about myself that I didn’t fully understand at the time.

One of those things was my willingness to give things a try to push myself into the right direction.

If I want to make huge changes in the
way I live my life to become the person that I see in my minds eye:

I must be willing to give up what I am in order to be come what I will be.

#33 Add This To Your Morning Routine For An Awesome Start

Good Morning!

I’ve written about the morning routine quite a bit already,
and there is good reason for it.  Starting
the day off in the right direction and setting yourself up for success sets the
tone of the day.

I wrote previously about the 20-20-20 morning routine and you can read about that here.  Take an hour for yourself and well-being in the early hours to get your sweat on,  grow, and reflect.… Read More “#33 Add This To Your Morning Routine For An Awesome Start”

#31 Success Is The Outcome Of Many Failures

Good Morning!

Last night I played the game Super Meat Boy for the live
stream.  It’s regarded as one of the more
difficult games in the platformer segment, and I wholeheartedly agree.

You can watch some of the stream replay below to get an idea of the game. If the video starts at the beginning, skip ahead to 24 minutes.

In the two hours that I played yesterday, I completed 4
levels.  Each of these levels I played no
less than twenty attempts and for two of the levels that number is probably
closer to one hundred. 

Being ok with failure and not getting overly frustrated is a
requirement of playing this game.… Read More “#31 Success Is The Outcome Of Many Failures”

#30 – 10 Benefits of Working Under Pressure

Good Morning!

Lately I’ve been giving myself about two hours to write in the
morning before the daily post needs to be published.

Working under a time
constraint
has some powerful benefits if the amount of time allotted for task
at hand has been estimated correctly.

I shoot for five-hundred words every single morning, formatted, edited, and polished.

These five-hundred words should be meaningful words.… Read More “#30 – 10 Benefits of Working Under Pressure”

#29 Let’s Get Comfy, At Work

Good Morning!

This morning as I sit at my writing desk making a list of the potential topics I want to write for today’s post, I find myself always adjusting my hand, foot, back/butt position trying to get in a comfortable position to write.

I go through this process every morning.

Most days I usually just pain through the process, but today
I leaned back in my office chair, balanced the laptop on the edge of the desk
and started writing. 

This isn’t the most comfortable position for my body as a
whole, but it’s a trade-off for wrist comfort, which is what I’m concerned
about in the short term. 

But what if I don’t want to trade off?… Read More “#29 Let’s Get Comfy, At Work”
