Sometimes It's OK to Change Our Minds - 2gno.me

Many times, especially right before elections, we hear accusations of a candidate being a “flip-flopper” or being “wishy-washy”, which basically means someone held a certain position on an issue and then changed his or her position later. This is typically perceived as a weakness or flaw in character.  There are times, however, when it’s all right to change our minds.

This is not to say that it’s a good thing to be consistently indecisive, but there are benefits to being open-minded enough to admit when we’ve made a mistake or have discovered information that has a direct ...

awareness creative

This I encourage. Take ample time for the things that seem simple. Check out the edges for those salient details, imperfections, observations that are sure to make your sentiments bloom. Fly below the clouds. Peer deep through the center and keep an ear for the sound of beauty.

Despite what you’ve been told, life is a miracle.

Ask the protozoa that inhabit our thoughts.

Admire, for instance, the tambourine-type quality held in the slick and durable lining of our billionth vital cell.

Because of these things we might leave nothing to chance, yet our greatest fears become of it ...

relax

We’re ambitious, busy and overbooked…

And we all need time to relax. But who can figure out how to unwind?

It’s typical for our day to be a to-do list, and it demands a lot from us. If we don’t take the time…  oh, and for goodness sake, calm down… this stress surely could be unbearable.

So pay attention to the connection between mind and body.

This awareness will tell you when it’s time to take a break.

The key lies in learning what techniques work best for each of us. Use those techniques against ...

charisma

Charisma – we’re either born with it or we’re not. So if we are born with a charismatic personality, what can we do with it?

Charismatic leaders have the ability to inspire people, groups, even nations to think in new, powerful ways. They can motivate others to be more productive, creative and open to innovative ideas. And they can inspire people to be loyal to their leadership, a company and entire movements.

There are several different styles of leadership, but charismatic leadership may be one of the most exciting because people are often naturally attracted to leaders who have ...

awareness gain self-knowledge get to know yourself perception personality

I heard the author David Eagleman on the radio. He said something about possessing multiple selves engaged in creating a type of barter-narrative that results in the outward projection that actually ends up being "the self", or what we think we know of it.

The trick here may be to realize that not any one of us is really one person. We're all multiples. In a matter of minutes you can walk from an office space to a playground, where on one end you'll consider yourself underdressed and under-educated and maybe even undervalued... to the other end where ...

We’ve all watched interviews with famous people who’ve said they’ve known what they wanted to do since they were little kids. For those of us who have never felt so certain, it can feel uncomfortable and even disappointing. Some people go through life never knowing or realizing what their true passion is.

I know someone like that. He signed up for the Air Force as a young man and made that his career, but in his downtime, building things always fascinated him. If he didn’t have a hammer or saw in his hands, he was reading ...
