ABC Resolution: You


What if doing different meant believing differently in you?

You are a complex entity. You are infinitely capable of doing more than you think and more than anyone else knows. Finding you means shrugging off the limitations put on you by others. Our man-made, artificial environment has disconnected you from your work, your world and yourself. This separation is, by design, meant to keep you humming like a human cog in a great, business machine.

As a machine part, isolation and insulation control you outputs and hinder your ability to tap into your potential. Deep down inside, you are a You, not a Me. Me is inward facing, centered toward self and exclusionary in thought and deed. You is outward facing, inclusive and open for possibility. Understand you are not alone. You are already connected to the universe in ways just being uncovered.

To discover the real You, first un-dull your six senses. Reach out your limbs and brain sensors and feel the energy around you. Start walking a path you never walked before. See different sights. Meet different people. Hear different music. Touch different things. Savor different flavors. Smell different scents. Say different words. Feel different emotions. Think different thoughts.

Bring all of You to work differently – your humanity, passion, intelligence, creativity, emotion, imagination, kindness, potential, value, worth, hopes and dreams.

I was the chess champion the previous year, Continue reading

New research offers surprising answers to the age-old question of where morality comes from  Arber Tasimi is a 23-year-old researcher at Yale University’s Infant Cognition Center, where he studies the moral inclinations of babies—how the littlest children understand right and wrong, before language and culture exert their deep influence.“What are we at our core, before anything, before everything?” he asks. His experiments draw on the work of Jean Piaget, Noam Chomsky, his own undergraduate thesis at the University of Pennsylvania and what happened to him in New Haven, Connecticut, one Friday night last February.    Read the Full Article:
