Doing a Yorkie

Strangely enough in the last few weeks, I was looking at how people ended up at the wrong airport. Yuh know, Gatwick instead of Heathrow etc. Well, what’s prompted this post is a new one! Yeah – this is where you (not me) end up at the right airport onRead More

A simple thing

Well, as usual people don’t know what they don’t know and won’t take the time to explore – so they need to be told.  On this occasion I’m sharing this simple timer thing that lives on Windows 10. Obviously, I can’t say nor do I have time to check ifRead More

Living your own life or the world living your life.

People believe that they’re living their own lives. I’ve come to think that they are not – for the most part. Life is about living the time between birth and death. What you do with that time is important. People find different purposes in life: Some want to contribute to societyRead More

Are self-help materials a waste of time?

The way most people will answer the question is like – ‘Well it depends…‘ or ‘They may help some people but not everybody‘. And that right there represents the market for people who will more than likely purchase self-help books (SHB). Now calm down – I’m not saying that SHBsRead More

From no longer a friend

I’ve lost count now, the number of posts I’ve made on the nature of ‘friends’ and ‘friendship’. I’ll hyperlink to some of them at the end. If you jump straight into the conversation below you’ll miss the context, which I explain in the next paragraph. The Story This is aRead More

The nature of the flow of thought

An unusual individual has given free-willing consent to publishing this conversation. Some will be obsessed with XY’s and JS’s characteristics, identities and when all this happened – which is to miss other important things in this conversation. Human thought/thinking is a sequence of ideas and assertions using language. Its flowRead More

Turning 10 seconds into 5 minutes

For a long time, I’ve been observing how little people read things. Ahhhhh… but what does ‘read‘ or ‘reading‘ mean? The best definition I’ve found is, “the cognitive process of understanding a written linguistic message.” In this post I’m referring to things that people ought to have read i.e. variousRead More

The Dream

What’s the big dream!! Well, you who reads this might have to spend 44 seconds of your life checking it out. Oh dear – too much time! When I wrote about value in reading books, I did a Venn Diagram. Overnight, I realised that ‘cost’ could be seen as ‘risk’.Read More

Is there value in reading books?

It  may sound like a stupid question to some. If you think or know so, move on swiftly. This post is motivated by a web-based conversation I had the other night. I mentioned some book in a forum as a reference – not a recommendation to purchase. Someone then responded,Read More

Controlling your world

Did I say ‘controlling the world?’ I did NOT! I said ‘your world’. What does ‘your world’ mean? I mean the probabilities of events that are happening now and preparing for probabilities of events likely to happen in the future. Some fool needs an example. It’s this simple: if youRead More
