I could write about this in great detail. It is something I believe strongly about, but there is just one point I would like to make right now. I say this in full realization that such a statement could be considered self-referential. Anyone who suggests that you are a victim of others, is trying to […]

I love optical illusions. First of all, they are cool, secondly the good ones teach us something about the way our eyes and brains work. One of the neat things about the internet is that it makes it really easy to share animated optical illusions. Check this one out: If you follow the pink dos […]

Naturalist or Bodily-Kinesthetic

My dad just sent me this video of Lorenzo : the Flying FrenchMan. . . It is really cool to watch, but it got me wondering, is this an example of Naturalist Intelligence, or Bodily-Kinesthetic.

I just finished reading the Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles. An amazing book. It was published about 100 years ago too. You can read the whole thing on WikiSource. That is where I got it from too. I formatted it all nice and printed it out. Wallace has other books like Science […]

My wife just sent me this quote, which I really like. “Practice until you get it right. Then practice until you can’t get it wrong.” Don’t know who it is by though. I’ll research that. . . I am also a fan of the differentiation that practice doesn’t make perfect, it makes permanent. Perfect practice […]
