We are made to move slowly yet the modern western world is pushing us faster.
If we were an automobile we’d be traded by now.
But, we’re not. We’re humans.
And with that in mind, we need to do things more efficiently to be properly productive daily over a longer time frame in life.
These days the internet, technologies, the pressure of working from home, and the 24/7 news channels pushing fears into our brains are making us feel pressurized.
Then there’s the need to compete against a growing international population which has almost trebled in population in less than…
“Get down to bed!”
Was the shout from my friend’s dad as I hung around with him sometime in our late teens.
We were at his house and it was only late evening.
Now you’d think that for a guy of around 18 that his father shouldn’t have been shouting at him when a guest was in the house or that his dad shouldn’t be letting rip at him to go to bed at that early time either especially considering his age group.
But it wasn’t that simple.
Because his father wasn’t yelling towards him or even me.
Ask yourself honestly how many times do you refer to the Bible in a typical day?
If you’re like most people you don’t.
But according to the good book, there’s history there of the types of people who although are in many far off lands we are assured are characters and personalities that are repeated throughout the ages.
And in fairness many of the characters in the Bible can be compared to many people we know in our everyday life.
Think about it, you’ve got the 3 wise men who know where Jesus is being born. Then you’ve got Zacchaeus…
Yesterday I noticed I was close to the 100 followers mark on Medium so I googled ‘how to get 100 followers on Medium”.
I know that’s pretty ironic given I was almost there but I was curious as to what the advice would be.
I wanted to see if I`d experienced any of the same things that those who attained this amount of followers before had.
But, to be honest, I didn’t.
Because the initial Google search showed a bunch of results displaying tactics of how best to orchestrate a path to gaining 100 followers. And even though I read…
Yesterday was a big day for planet earth to dream of a brighter future.
It was when the first space tourists returned from their three-day trip to space.
Back when I was in school just over twenty years ago this would have been laughed at. After all,
how could you send mere novices to space? And if they were allowed to go then surely they’d have astronauts with them to guide them along their path?
But times have moved on and so have people.
There’s been so much movement with people that they’re not only crossing borders of countries and…
‘I think it’s a yes’
said Tom Brady when asked recently in Tampa Bay Buccaneers by his teammate Ron Gronkowski about whether or not he can continue to play in the NFL when he reaches his half-century milestone.
His words sounded like those of the great creative mathematician and paramount Scientist René Descartes who stated:
“I think therefore I am”
But, realistically, how could Brady think this way?
After all, no one else has completed the feat he’s talking about. He must be mad, crazy even.
Does he not see that football is becoming a dangerous sport to be involved…
I`ve been growing all my life.
And I hold myself accountable for getting better every year I`m on earth.
Ever since I`ve been a child I`ve tried to learn as I go along. And when something went wrong when I was a child, of course, it was a tough lesson to take but I`d make sure I`d question myself.
When I went for a walk alone I`d say to myself:
“What have you learned now that you’re 12 years old?”
and then I`d have to think deeply about things and go back over the previous 12 months so I could…
Life surrounds us with healing properties all of the time yet we will die.
It’s a strange thing but it is guaranteed.
But when we’re alive we never quite grasp how easy it is to heal ourselves at times. We complain of small things and never seem to realize that in complaining we are wasting the most valuable thing we are given in our lives.
And that of course is time.
Common complaints from many people can be that they have a sore back or an itchy feeling somewhere where they can’t seem to scratch better. And there are feelings…
The German author Eckhart Tolle is famous for educating the world on the present moment.
After all, it was his book ‘The Power of Now’ that sold millions of copies in over thirty different languages around the world. But that ‘now’ that he spoke about occurred back in 1997.
And since then a lot has happened.
After all, the planet has changed especially since the world recession of 2008 and the global pandemic of 2020. And your world has changed too.
For me back in 1997, I was just leaving school. I didn’t know what lay in my future and…
“Ronaldo is exceptional… But we have to look after him as well and it felt like the right moment to take him off.”
These were the words of Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following his team’s 2–1 defeat in the UEFA Champions League to Young Boys.
But it got it wrong soon before that when he substituted the number 7 for Jesse Lingard.
Sure, I can understand Ole’s thinking from a perspective of age as Ronaldo is 36 years old and there is a 38 game Premier League campaign. And that’s not including the three other competitions the club…
