7 Reasons Why You Will Never Do Anything Amazing With Your Life — Life Learning
1 :: Because You Have Not Failed Enough Because you are comfortable in your mediocrity; because you choose not to try. Because it is easier to talk about learning that new (programming?) language as opposed to actually learning it. Because you think everything is too hard or too complicated so you will just “sit this one out”, or maybe you’ll, “do-it-tomorrow”! Because you hate your job but won’t get a new one; because it is easy to reject rejection. Because while you’re sitting around failing to try, I am out there trying to fail, challenging myself, learning new things and failing as fast as possible. Because as I fail, I learn, and then adjust my course to make sure my path is always forward. 2 :: Because You Care What Others Think About You Because you have to fit in. Because you believe that being different is only cool if you’re different in the same way that other people are different. Because you are afraid to embrace your true self for fear of how the world will see you.

Public Speaking Tips In my mind, there are two kinds of attention: neck down, and neck up. Neck-up attention is when the listener has to make an effort to pay attention. Neck-down attention is when the listener is riveted to the speaker: she can't help but pay attention. Please note that, in our language of English, attention is paid because attention is a valuable currency. When listeners pay attention, they are rewarding you with arguably the most valuable currency in the world. PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION » Video- Sir Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?

This Video Induces Natural Hallucinations Who needs drugs when you have science? If you follow the video’s instructions, when you look away you will continue to see wavy lines in your wall or on the floor.

When the video ends and you look away, your brain still expects to see the waves, and therefore it creates them for you. Saying the letters out loud doesn’t really play a role, it just ensures that you are focusing on the center of the screen, where you can best receive the stimulus. For best results, view the video full screen on an HD display.
