A positive thought to start the week. :)
Lumosity is a webapp that provides specialized brain-training activities. You can use it for free, but premium accounts (which you can try free for five days) have a wider range of training options. All the exercises are pretty simple to understand and are fun to play. Lumosity’s exercises may vary for you based on the information you provide. When you’re done, you get a rating and your goal is simply to improve with each day you practice.
Norm Brodsky is a serial entrepreneur – one of those who has a knack of building one successful business after another.
Being a man of action, Norm knew he was regularly guilty of rushing into decisions on impulse. A few businesses and many bad decisions later, he came up with a simple idea – he would never take a major decision without thinking about it during a shower. He communicated this to all his employees and business partners.
The important catch here is that he could only shower after work at night and before work in the morning. So, EVERY major decision was given atleast a night’s thought. Norm’s characteristic entrepreneurial streak combined with his ‘shower and decide’ discipline were, of course, an unstoppable combination.
Haha. Happy Friday!
I was always a pretty bad athlete. Most of my time during sports meets in school went in clapping for the star athletes. As a result, I watched all these races, jumped and cheered. My favorite was the 4*100m relay and I guess watching many a race (versus running them) made me draw parallels to athletic situations.
I tried this morning to sign up for email subscription of the news. I used to be a news hog and then found the whole system extremely negative as seeing gory pictures of people dying practically every day wasn’t my favorite tonic at the start so I unsubscribed for a while but after an embarrassing dinner conversation with a colleague where I wasn’t up to speed on an important piece of news, I decided to re-subscribe and see where we go.
Simple, and true.
