The big secret

If you see someone make an overnight success, you might see her as lucky. But you don't see years of practice that she devoted each and every day. The key word here is PRACTICE. That is the big secret. Let's say that we have two persons Mr Winner and Mr Loser. Both want to exercise, to gain health. ...

Re: In the beginning there was no time

Not yet, but I will now... What William James has done is to collect various religious and supernatural experiences that people have had, and made analysis of them. The experience themselves are illuminating and provide interesting reading. Here's one example. “’You must first get rid of anger and ...

Our cleaning lady

Our cleaning lady is not highly educated but has a cunning intelligence, that often leaves me perplex. One day when she was cleaning the stains around the coffee machine, she said to me: "You are so sloven Bob". "I didn't make those stains", I replied," that's my son". ...

The magic of tiny habits

Just now, I've watched a Tedx video on youTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdKUJxjn-R8, by BJ Fogg. I've seen this idea in books like Mini Habits, The Slight Edge and some others. I've even discovered that method for myself one day when I was washing dishes (see my post called "The art of ...

Re: In the beginning there was no time

Warning, speculation ahead ... Maybe in the future there will be other inventions that expand our knowledge of reality. The scientific experiments of today can only register what happens in the four dimensional world of time and space. That is not surprising since the measuring instruments are const...

In the beginning there was no time

Yesterday I saw a a program about the creation of the Universe on YouTube. It began with a black picture and then a deep voice said. "In the beginning there was nothing" and then ...". A big explosion appeared on the screen. The picture that the video presented is dead wrong. First th...

Re: The secret of happiness

Glad to see that you are still around Vic, sharing kindness and wisdom to the crew :D I will do one experiment. For a week I will think and behave like the farmer. I will joyfully participate in the joys (and suspended joys) of the world, and will report back. If any of the readers want to make this...

The secret of happiness

Those who have ears listen, There lived a happy farmer who raised horses. One day a horse run away, and the other villagers said: "What a bad luck". He smiled and said: "You never know, it might as well be good luck". The next day his horse returned and brought with him a bunch o...

Re: Books you haven't read but feel you should

Here are the books I began to read, but had to abandon, because they were boring me. I know that some people find them fantastic, but I just could make my way through them.

Re: Will audiobooks dominate future

No. After nine years of working in the audiobook biz I was let go due to rapid decline in sales and the market in general. Thanks Terry, that was the most convincing argument. Although I love to listen to fiction audiobooks when I'm walking or at night before going to sleep. Non fiction I seldom li...

Will audiobooks dominate future

Technology has made audio books available, and more and more books can be bought in audio format. Fiction books I find more convenient to listen to than to read. Will written books in the future be read or listened to? Maybe reading books will just be a niche in future?
