We stand on the shoulders of giants, Hedy Lamarr wouldn’t have come to my attention if it hadn’t been for today’s Google Doodle.

Hedy had a glamorous film career both in Europe and America that spanned  the late 1920s to the 1950s.

During WWII Hedy and composer George Antheil, developed spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology the principles of which are part of Wi-Fi, CDMA and Bluetooth technology!Screen Shot 2017-07-25 at 11.40.02 PM

“24 QUALITIES THAT GENIUSES HAVE
IN COMMON

       “The world’s greatest geniuses have all had 24 personality characteristics in common — and you can develop the same traits in yourself, says an expert.

“‘Most people have the mistaken idea that geniuses are born, not made,’ declared clinical psychologist Dr. Alfred Barrios, founder and director of the Self-Programmed Control Center of Los Angeles and author of the book, TOWARDS GREATER FREEDOM AND HAPPINESS.

“‘But if you look at the lives of the world’s greatest geniuses — like Edison, Socrates, DaVinci, Shakespeare, Einstein — you discover they all had 24 personality characteristics in common.

“‘These are traits that anyone can develop. It makes no difference how old you are, how much education you have, or what you have accomplished to date. Adopting these personality characteristics enables you to operate on a genius level.’

“Here are the 24 characteristics Dr. Barrios lists which enable geniuses to come up with and develop new and fruitful ideas:

“1.   DRIVE.  ‘Geniuses have a strong desire to work hard and long. They’re willing to give all they’ve got to a project. Develop your drive by focusing on your future success, and keep going.’“2.   COURAGE.  ‘It takes courage to do things others consider impossible. Stop worrying what people will think if you are different.’

“3.   DEVOTION TO GOALS.  ‘Geniuses know what they want and go after it. Get control of your life and schedule. Have something specific to accomplish each day.’

“4.   KNOWLEDGE.  ‘Geniuses continually accumulate information. Never go to sleep at night without having learned at least one new thing that day. Read. And question people who know.’

“5.   HONESTY.  ‘Geniuses are frank, forthright and honest. Take the responsibility for things that go wrong. Be willing to admit, ‘I goofed’, and learn from your mistakes.’

“6.   OPTIMISM.  ‘Geniuses never doubt they will succeed. Deliberately focus your mind on something good coming up.’

“7.   ABILITY TO JUDGE.  ‘Try to understand the facts of a situation before you judge. Evaluate things on an open-minded, unprejudiced basis and be willing to change your mind.’

“8.   ENTHUSIASM.  ‘Geniuses are so excited about what they are doing, it encourages others to cooperate with them. Really believe that things will turn out well. Don’t hold back.’

“9.   WILLINGNESS TO TAKE CHANCES.  ‘Overcome your fear of failure. You won’t be afraid to take chances once you realize you can learn from your mistakes.’

“10.  DYNAMIC ENERGY.  ‘Don’t sit on your butt waiting for something good to happen. Be determined to make it happen.’

“11.  ENTERPRISE.  ‘Geniuses are opportunity seekers. Be willing to take on jobs others won’t touch. Never be afraid to try the unknown.’

“12.  PERSUASION.  ‘Geniuses know how to motivate people to help them get ahead. You’ll find it easy to be persuasive if you believe in what you’re doing.’

“13.  OUTGOINGNESS.  ‘I’ve found geniuses able to make friends easily and be easy on their friends. Be a ‘booster’, not someone who puts others down. That attitude will win you many valuable friends.’

“14.  ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE.  ‘Geniuses are able to effectively get their ideas across to others. Take every opportunity to explain your ideas to others.’

“15.  PATIENCE.  ‘Be patient with others most of the time, but always be impatient with yourself. Expect far more of yourself than of others.’

“16.  PERCEPTION.  ‘Geniuses have their mental radar working full time. Think more of others’ needs and wants than you do of your own.’

“17.  PERFECTIONISM.  ‘Geniuses cannot tolerate mediocrity, particularly in themselves. Never be easily satisfied with yourself. Always strive to do better.’

“18.  SENSE OF HUMOR.  ‘Be willing to laugh at your own expense. Don’t take offense when the joke is on you.’

“19.  VERSATILITY.  ‘The more things you learn to accomplish, the more confidence you will develop. Don’t shy away from new endeavors.’

“20.  ADAPTABILITY.  ‘Being flexible enables you to adapt to changing circumstances readily. Resist doing things the same old way. Be willing to consider new options.’

“21.  CURIOSITY.  ‘An inquisitive, curious mind will help you seek out new information. Don’t be afraid to admit you don’t know it all. Always ask questions about things you don’t understand.’

“22.  INDIVIDUALISM.  ‘Do things the way you think they should be done, without fearing somebody’s disapproval.’

“23.  IDEALISM.  ‘Keep your feet on the ground — but have your head in the clouds. Strive to achieve great things, not just for yourself, but for the betterment of mankind.’

“24.  IMAGINATION.  ‘Geniuses know how to think in new combinations, see things from a different perspective, than anyone else. Unclutter your mental environment to develop this type of imagination. Give yourself time each day to daydream, to fantasize, to drift into a dreamy inner life the way you did as a child.’”

Busy Helping Others…

27 Sep

agallery

In order to keep at least one post a month working on my blog I decided to let you know that I’ve become a true “nettie” helping create and build websites. I found a very cool template that resonated with me in bringing art and science together. I met a very ethical chiropractor and helped build two of his websites. One is for his patients… here’s the link:

http://www.kwangwellness.com

and the other is for the rest of the world called:

http://www.icanhealmyself.com

Both, of course are on wordpress which is my favorite as it allows others to interact as users without feeling so confused.

So, on behalf of Dr. Kwang, feel free to put in a comment below so I can invite you to guest blog and he on yours and sign up for some of his health tips. He does Chinese Medicine and has invented a tea infusion that cures. It’s called Oxygen Tea. I’ve taken about 14 of them and love the healthiness I feel. His other one I’ve tried is Vitamin C Tea. It has 10,000 I.U. of “C” and most definitely is a perk me up that has the same effect as those that go to get a shot, except this … you drink. It does taste like the peel so I mix it with other things when I want to change. I’ve tried about 30 of them and have to attest they truly help.

Thanks for listening. Let me know if you need help with one of your blogs or websites.

The Procrastination Problem

Grateful to Dinsa for coming up with this wonderful blog, which I repost so I don’t lose it on the web.

So many great ideas die because of procrastination. Why do some of us tend to keep delaying our tasks while others get them done on time? It turns out that there is a cocktail of factors at play. “Some avoid an activity for a lack of interest, such as being asked to take out the garbage or a child being asked to clean his or her room,” says Seaford, New York-based clinical neuropsychologist Dr Christine Weber.

Sometimes people will put off even important tasks, such as preparing an office presentation. “These activities have greater consequences for the future, and there may be more trepidation associated with them,” observes Weber. “Emotions and insecurities may cause an individual to experience fear, which if extreme, can be paralyzing.”

This can impair your capacity to regulate your behavior and hurt productivity.

But procrastination is not a disease. It’s like a bad habit. You can beat it. Try these research and expert-backed suggestions:

1. Set smart goals: You need to set powerful goals to beat procrastination. Your long-term goals (I want to be a rock star) must deeply resonate with your inner values and interests. “You could think of these goals as nuclear-powered naval ships, in that they’re immensely powerful and slow-burning, so they’ll hold your interest forever, keeping you oriented and pointed in the right direction,” says Los Angeles-based licensed psychotherapist Jim Hjort.

On the other hand, short-term goals (I need to apply for the music residency in Milan) need to be tangible and objective. “These serve as a means of noticing your progress, much like watching mile markers whiz by the window on the highway while the mountains (your long-term goals) appear relatively motionless in the distance,” says Hjort.

2. Think days, not years: Is it one of your top goals to reach the six-figure mark in income in three years? If you don’t want to procrastinate, don’t think of the time period in years, think in terms of days. So, you should tell yourself that you have to hit the six-figure mark in 1,095 days, says a study published in April this year in Psychological Science.

3. Make “now” deadlines: A study published in Journal of Consumer Research in August 2014 showed that people were more likely to be spurred to action if they made “now” deadlines. Let’s say you want to lose 20 pounds by January. January is too far ahead. You could lose interest easily. How about focusing on the weight you have to lose this month—or this week? Looks doable, doesn’t it?

4. Fake it till you make it: San Diego-based psychotherapist Robert Duff says the “fake it till you make it” approach can kick procrastination. “With this strategy you ask yourself, ‘What would I be doing right now if I felt motivated?’ and then you play that role, go through the motions at first and act as if’ you were motivated and not distracted.” He also recommends combining this method with the five-minute rule. Ask yourself to do something for just five minutes. You can quit after that. “More often than not, once you get started, you will find your groove, and it will seem like a better idea to just keep going,” says Duff.

5. Chop it down: One reason we fall into the procrastination trap is because the task that lies ahead is huge and daunting. “Break seemingly big and challenging tasks into smaller more manageable activities and get started on those activities,” says Alan Zimmerman, author of The Payoff Principle: Discover the 3 Secrets for Getting What You Want Out of Life and Work. “For example, you can write a 200-page book in seven months by simply writing a page a day.”

6. Make boring fun: Beating procrastination requires learning to do some unpleasant work. The trick is to find excitement even in the mundane. “Attempt to make disliked activities more enjoyable by using positive reinforcement,” says Weber. “Offer your own rewards for completing unpleasant tasks.” Been putting off making dinner tonight? Why don’t you ask your globetrotting friend, Anna, to come over? The prospect of listening to her Korean adventure this summer while dining suddenly makes cooking hour a lot more tolerable.

7. Forgive yourself: Did you miss your deadline for an important work project because you were glued to baseball on television? Stop berating yourself. A 2010 study by Carleton University researchers shows that if you forgive yourself after an episode of procrastination, you are less likely to procrastinate on that task in the future.

Get started on these tactics to beat procrastination…now.
