SOME INSPIRATIONAL MATERIAL COLLECTED Oct 8
Cultivating Community and Transformation Public Education and Empowerment Resource Service (PEERS) is deeply committed to cultivating community and transformation through inspiration and education. Incorporated in early 2006 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, PEERS embraces a bold vision of building a brighter future by inspiring a sense of global community based on love and cooperation, and by educating the public to little-known forces underlying the political and economic structures that shape our world. The greatest part of our work involves the ongoing development of a network of popular websites and highly praised online courses dedicated to these goals. We are also exploring various ways to use the ever-evolving connective capabilities of the Internet to facilitate community development and direct, inspired action leading to personal and global transformation. And it's all free of charge. PEERS: Public Education and Empowerment Resource Service

It doesn’t matter if you have a genius IQ and a PhD in Quantum Physics, you can’t change anything or make any sort of real-world progress without taking action. There’s a huge difference between knowing how to do something and actually doing it.

Mornings are underrated. I consider them fundamental for the whole diurnal experience. What you do in the very first moments of your morning will fundamentally and inexorably shape your entire day. Most of the time you spend your mornings by routinely performing some habits, on auto pilot. Hence, your days will routinely unfold towards you, the same way day after day, on auto pilot.
