38 Masculine Quotes To Live By - Handbook of GM Living 38 Masculine Quotes To Live By - Handbook of GM Living I put together this list of Masculine Quotes because I get annoyed with the endless amount of fluff and candy-coated bullshit that passes in our culture as genius and inspiring. You know, the type of crap that gets retweeted and shared on your social media feeds by people who have the depth of a mud puddle about them. The quotes over a woman jumping, or the quotes over a creek. Well here you are about to get the real deal. Quotes It never troubles the wolf how many the sheep may be. – VirgilWhat the superior man seeks is in himself. If unwilling to rise in the morning, say to thyself, ‘I awake to do the work of a man.’ I came. Which one was your favorite? Like this: Like Loading...

Malované tenisky - brydova.cz Malované tenisky - brydova.cz Na relaxační pobytu v Sebuzíně jsme s klientkami malovali na tenisky. A protože se to moc líbilo, tak mám pro vás článek jak na to, aby i vaše tenisky mohly být barevné a veselé. Malovalo se na nejrůznější tenisky – nejčastěji co vím, tak byli z HM, New Yorkru apod. Při malování jsme si nevšimly, že by některé přijímaly barvu hůř a některé méně. Všechny byli ideální. Na malování podkladu jsme používali barvy na hedvábí. Plochu, kterou jsme chtěli mít barevnou jsme nejdříve namočili vodou pomocí houbičky na nádobí. Postupně nanášejte na vlhké tenisky barvu – opět pomocí houbičky – začněte tou nejsvětlejší a dejte ji na větší plochu, než ji ke konci chcete mít. Postupně přidávejte barvy, které chcete na teniskách mít. Tyto tenisky měly doladit oblečení z Desigual a proto jsem použila tři základní barvy – tj. žlutou, tyrkys a magentu. Nakonec pomocí vlhké houbičky propojte všechny nanesené barvy do jednotného celku. Namalované tenisky necháme dobře zaschnout. Bílé tečky rozsvítí vzor.

Handmade byznys Sníte o tom, že se začnete živit rukodělnou výrobou? Nebude to snadné! Podnikání v handmade má totiž jako každé řemeslo svá pravidla. Rukodělná výroba a DIY (do it yourself – vyrob si sám) zažívají velký boom. Snad každý, kdo kouzlu handmade propadl, už slyšel od svého okolí větu „Ty by ses tím mohl živit! Na počátku je koníček Startovním bodem pro většinu rukodělných výrobců je moment, kdy jim jejich koníček začne přerůstat přes hlavu. Hned na začátku je potřeba udělat si jasno, jestli má být prodej výrobků jen přivýdělkem, nebo jestli by se dříve nebo později měl stát zaměstnáním, které člověka uživí. Začněme z té jednodušší strany a představme si, že na výrobě nezávisí naše živobytí, a stačí nám pouze si přivydělat. Kde a jak výrobky prodávat? Kde prodávat? Při prodeji se můžeme rozhodnout pro jednu ze dvou cest, nebo je můžeme i kombinovat: Prodávat své zboží sami, či vyrábět pro někoho jiného a starost s prodejem nechat na něm. Online prodej Prodej naživo Jak si určit cenu Co dál? Tak. Handmade byznys

Reaching For The Stars And Getting Nowhere? Read This. If you have ever reached for the stars and gotten nowhere, here’s what you should know: Somehow, the Internet has fostered a culture of razor-thin self identity. I think it came from the whole niche market to make money thing. If you aren’t selling red wool sweaters for male french bulldogs YOU ARE LOSING. Instead, be more than one thing. If you are a master of animation, you are an animator.If you are an animator and a storyteller, you are amazing.If you are an animator, a storyteller, and a businessman, you are Pixar. It’s okay to be Pixar. Summer break ruined a lot of us. Almost every school in America observes a big break after six months or so. After six months, you are offered a total reset. I have found no such parallel in the real world. The people you hate show up every day. Yet, I’m willing to bet you know someone who still sticks to the school model. Not you, though. Because when you stay around for 6 months, you pass almost everyone who wanted to do what you are doing. Step 1. Reaching For The Stars And Getting Nowhere? Read This.
A Puppet is Free as Long as it Loves its Strings – Spark Capital Collection Or a guide on how to become haunted by path dependence I. On Imagination How hard is it to picture an imaginary world, to construct in your mind’s eye a wholly original microcosm unchained from the physical laws of our universe? If the rules in this world were your own and you weren’t bound by physics or organic chemistry or whatever else, could you picture a place that is truly unique? The only constraint is the breadth of your imagination. In 1981, a mysterious manuscript surfaced, and it offered an attempt at this unfettered inventiveness. But, if you stare at the pages long enough, your mind starts to notice patterns and impose meaning. But, like an M.C. The ambitious Codex sets out to construct an entirely unique imaginary world, yet we find familiarity in its every image. “Newness” is not conjured, as in the romantic notion of zero-to-one. We cannot imagine into existence a complex structure or technology. II. Peter Thiel has this famous bit of startup advice: III. IV. V.

4 Amazing Benefits of Reducing Your Screen Time – The Mission – Medium When you’re writing a book on creative habits, you end up conducting lots of experiments. A few of my previous experiments include: A few weeks ago I decided to conduct another experiment. I wanted to test the impact of reducing screen time on my attention span. When I woke up the next morning and sat down at my desk to go through my 8-step daily routine, I noticed that was much calmer and more focused. One of the things I do in the evening as I fall asleep is listen to hypnosis tapes to reprogram my subconscious. Distraction is becoming an epidemic. Excessive screen time causes our attention to shift from one external stimulus to another in very short amounts of time. Some fun and horrifying things I learned from the work of happiness researcher, Amy Blankson: We spend 2 hours a day, 38 days a year, locking and unlocking our phonesThe average human attention span has gone below that of a goldfishChecking email only 3 times a day reduces stress by 25% 1.Better Sleep 2. 3. 4 Amazing Benefits of Reducing Your Screen Time – The Mission – Medium

How to Promote Creative Thinking | Scholastic How to Promote Creative Thinking | Scholastic We often remark on the marvelous creativity of young children's drawings, dramatic play, and invented language. Children show imaginative use of color, themes, and flights of fancy in their language. As teachers, we play an important role in supporting children's ability in art, dramatic expression, and creative responses to problems. Often, our primary goals are directed at keeping children healthy and safe, teaching cognitive skills such as shape and color recognition, encouraging prosocial behavior, and introducing basic literacy and numeration skills. With all the time that needs to be devoted to these areas, there is less opportunity to think about the importance of nurturing children's creative abilities. And yet, creative power increases a young child's desire to learn and supports intellectual development. Ask five different teachers to define "creativity" and you'll probably get five different answers. You can help children understand that: Creative Teaching Magical Movement

The Ultimate Directory Of Free Image Sources – The Edublogger So, you need an image for your blog? We’ve spent some time categorizing our favorite sources for free images and organizing them in such a way as to help you find what you’re looking for. Here are the criteria we’ve examined: Subjects: Does a site focus on specific genres of images, or is it a mass collection of various image types? High Resolution: Lots of great image resources emerged in the pre-Web 2.0 phase, but it wasn’t until bandwidth dramatically increased that allowed for the uploading of much higher resolution images suitable for editing and printing. License: The licenses vary extremely from source to source. Safety: Government sites and many specific subject collections are extremely safe for students to use. Search Engines While these websites do not actually contribute image content themselves, they’re able to index images in a way that makes it easier to search for free content. Category Favorite: Bing Images Bing Images Compfight Creative Commons Search Everystockphoto HiveStock
On a fairly regular basis I'm asked for suggestions on places to find public domain images. I have a handful of go-to sites that I usually recommend. Pixabay is currently my first recommendation for a place to find and download quality public domain images. You can search on Pixabay by using keywords or you can simply browse through the library of images. When you find an image you can download it in the size that suits your needs. Every Stock Photo is a search engine for public domain and Creative Commons licensed pictures. The Morgue File photo collection contains thousands of images that anyone can use for free in academic or commercial presentations. Each time that I visit it the Flickr Commons collection seems to have grown. Bing has an option for finding public domain images. 5 Good Places for Students to Find Public Domain Images
The many ‘entertainment’ options phones give us distort our ability to connect with people right next to us. We live surrounded by an increasingly complex matrix of impulses (transmitted via TV, media and the internet) that allow strangers of all sorts to interfere in our mental, emotional and spiritual development. Understanding this intricate network and how the human brain interacts with it is becoming our door to happiness and health. Our interaction with the Net, with TV and with computers has replaced our interaction with nature which in its magical way nurtures our cognitive,emotional, physical and psychological well-being The self or the personality is a bundle of socially-influenced traits that emerges and is formed gradually. A great deal is known about the links between our behaviour and TV, and between our emotions and computer games, because there have been thousands of studies on these subjects. Most of the studies found that there is a link. www.artof4elements.com Inspired or lost in the technology matrix?
Musicians are more likely to use both hemispheres of their brain and more likely to use divergent thinking in their thought processes. Divergent thinking is essential for creativity. It is the ability to see lots of possible ways to interpret a question and lots of possible answers to it. It is important to vary thought processes so that children use both convergent and divergent thinking - Natasa Pantovic It is a thought process used to generate creative ideas by exploring many possibilities. Divergent thinking is often used as a parallel of convergent thinking that follows a particular set of logical steps to arrive at one solution. In their book Breakpoint and Beyond, George Land and Beth Jarman describe a longitudinal study they conducted on 1,600 kindergarden children aged three to five. Five years later, they re-tested the same children, now aged eight to 10 and only 32 per cent scored in the creative genius category. An average person would have 10 to 15 answers to this question. Divergent thinking
Conscious Mind [Article]: Conscious and Subconscious Mind Powers Mind Powers Conscious and Subconscious Mind Mindfulness Articles, Conscious Mind Conscious and Subconscious Mind Powers What is the Nature of Mind? We think of: consciousness, awareness, cognitive thinking, reasoning, perception; but also of: intuition, subconscious gibberish, or unconscious strata that influences our lives and the way of behaviour. The state of mind, our positive or negative attitude towards the world, is closely related to our experiences of happiness or suffering. Conscious and Subconscious Mind Powers in Buddhism Buddhist literature discusses in details the various levels of mind and consciousness. According to Buddhist, any act is closely linked to the state of mind. Explaining the relationship of mind and divine consciousness, some Buddhist thinkers analysed the mind’s ability to observe itself and called it: ‘self-consciousness’ or ‘self-awareness’. Mind Powers and Collective Unconsciousness The spiritual development means - becoming more conscious. Mind Powers and Yoga
