Tough Choices: The Science Behind Making The Right Call Our lives are filled with one decision after another. Many are trivial but every now and then, a biggie comes along, one where you just know that you’re about to irreversibly shape your own future. The bad news is our decision-making is hampered by the fog of human irrationality. 10 EPIC Quotes from “Conversations With God” “Conversations With God: An Uncommon Dialogue” by Neal Walsh is one of my favorite books of all time, hands down. It is written from the point of view of god (but it’s not religion, so don’t scoff quite yet) telling man how he should live his life. I like to think of it as god’s hypothetical edits to the incredibly skewed, modern interpretation of the ‘The Bible.’

Why Your Vision Must Be Grounded in Reality Whether you realize it or not, you're on a path. You can look back and see exactly how you got to where you stand today. The path ahead is far more nebulous, of course, but it's still a path. Your actions and decisions help to define it, as do all sorts of factors both in and out of your control. If you think of your path as a physical entity, you can easily see that it has certain properties.

Study a person character using his/her body Language in almost any situation Here are some great techniques to Read Body Language to Reveal the Underlying Truth in Almost Any Situation. You've likely heard that body language accounts for up to 55% of how we communicate, but reading non-verbal cues isn't just about broad strokes. The same gesture can indicate a number of different things depending on context. In this post, we're going to take a look at three common situations in which non-verbal cues are especially important—detecting lies, going on a date, and interviewing for a job—then explain how to interpret body language more accurately so that you can read between the lines when a person's words aren't necessarily conveying the way that they honestly feel. We lie a lot. When having a conversation with a stranger, chances are we'll lie in the first ten minutes.

You’ve Got Plenty Of Time Yes, you do. I’ve caught myself whispering this in my own ears frequently during the last few days. And it worked. It worked because it is true, despite how everything seems to indicate just the opposite.

For round-robin tournaments and tennis leagues, I knew that I really need to be playing at a 3.5-ranking level in order to participate. The second I set that ranking as the goal, I found myself having thoughts like "In the past you've taken lessons and didn't really improve very much," and, "At your age, it's too late to get into tennis," and, "What if I take all these lessons and invest all this money and I still suck at tennis?" Despite all of the negative ammunition I was pumping myself with, I signed up for lessons, and I'm having so much fun that I can't believe I even considered not going for it. I'm not a 3.5-level player yet, but the goal is in sight and I'm on my way.

Six Habits of Highly Empathic People If you think you’re hearing the word “empathy” everywhere, you’re right. It’s now on the lips of scientists and business leaders, education experts and political activists. But there is a vital question that few people ask: How can I expand my own empathic potential?
