Hot Topics without Heated Shout-Outs

It takes skill and courage to value  ideas that differ from your own.  Interestingly, while few do it well, those who listen and learn from others tend to transform their circles. They disagree with amazing tone skills and in so doing,  inspire others to express novel ideas that may otherwise never surface. Progressive thinkers often […]

Question to Know How You are Smart

Ask,  How smart are you? and a person tends to respond negatively and in numerical scores. This question – as worded above – increasingly causes problems, because of new facts that identify differing areas where several intelligences reside in human brains. Unlike  general intelligence ideas, that guided test writers, we now know that people who […]

237 Voices 1 Transformed Community

Many voices, one book!  Many talents, one buzz! Just out, this book begs the question: How can 237 authors converse on eight topics, as one community? Read essays that change thinking and revolutionize discourse. Did I mention that this hot new book’s proceeds all go to charity.  Every penny will be sent to Variety, the […]

Age Graciously or Voraciously?

Do you lie about age, or do others find inspiration from your maturity? Perhaps more importantly – can you laugh at age? Do predictable answers fly from your tongue like corn pops over heat, or do you investigate and weigh different viewpoints? Would friends describe you as gracious and set in your ways, or as […]

Target Brainpower for Financial Growth

Have you felt bombarded as waves of financial failures intensify? It’s hard not to be drawn into the swells that wash away chunks of security with each ebb and flow.

10 Keys To Einstein’s Learning

Einstein once claimed he was no smarter than others, but that he simply stayed with problems long after others left. Could you solve more problems with genius, if you tried Einstein’s keys to learning? 1. Mystery – for Einstein all true art and science embody mysteries to ponder. 2. Ethics – flamed learning for Einstein, […]

Rewrite News – One Creation at a Time

As I ponder today’s news, disturbing headlines point to loss,  doom and hopelessness, that work against human brainpower to restore and grow. Have you noticed growing negativity here? Amazing answers exist when we look to life-changing powers of creativity. Check out Charles Leadbetter‘s response in this YouTube.  Can you see why many  still hold out […]

Drugs of Choice for Turbulent Times

We’ve all been there. You wake up feeling full of energy – with mental resources and a will to conquer the world. Then out of the blue, your fate shifts, and you lapse into anxiety that douses your flame and snuffs out any zest for living with it. Has it happened to you lately? Luckily, […]

Question Brainpower Through Mita Growth Survey

We now know that IQ scores increase over a lifetime, that brains hold power tools for ethical excellence, and that dendrite brain cells rewire daily based on what you do. My question is,  Do your multiple intelligences expand too, or are they lifeless through lack of use? Whenever you tap your unique mix of mental […]

10 Marks of Mental Poverty on Blog Action Day

On first glance, mental poverty appears less destructive than physical forms of poverty. Look again though,  at  toxic wastelands in the human mind at work, and you’ll often spot poverty’s deadly marks. While it’s true that all forms of deficiency leave people emaciated, it’s also true that mental poverty sneaks in unnoticed, stalks in silence, […]

Target Differences between Gender Brains

Some say that men’s logic rivals women’s emotion, when it comes to leading, problem-solving or coping with stress. Others say that successful men and women use both logic and emotion – but they use it differently to solve problems and cope with stress. What do you say? Interestingly,  hilarious mental differences you’ll spot in the […]

Wired for War or Poised for Peace?

How we situate images of war affects how our brains wire to support or reject it. Replace words such as war on terror with expressions that grow stronger communities, and our brains shift from expectations of violence to proposals for peace across differences. Imagine a place of prosperity where no brain is left behind, and […]

Target Lessons from Opposing Views

Pause for a moment and listen to opinionated or narrow-minded people you know. Listen to them tell others why they are far more qualified to give one-sided versions of a  topic than other people hold. Notice the put downs and attacks that fall like pellets in a hail storm? You’ll likely hear choice words such […]

Wonders and Woes of your Basal Ganglia

It’s both brainpower for mastery of ethical practices and at times your slave master to cynical opposites.  Unless you understand the brain’s equipment at work, you can easily fall into a basal ganglia’s propensity for ruts and miss its zest for rejuvenation. How so? Your brain’s basal ganglia opens wonderful windows of solidarity and reliability […]

Tone Turns Down the Heat

Today, I arrived home late to discover a bill marked OVERDUE PAYMENT from Verizon Wireless for their broadband service I tried at their request and then returned a few days later. Yikes! The free trial ad had clearly touted an invitation to try their service free of charge for 30 days – and I tried […]

Brain Waves to Sleep

Dream of finer sleep? Read on… In a normal sleep cycle, EEGs show the brain slows down progressively over a thirty minute period. After that point, the brain shifts into a  trance-like sleep known as REM, or rapid eye movement state. Without enough deep sleep, or REM, people are prone to workplace disasters caused by […]

Waves of Brainpower and Electricity

Electrical activity in your brain is as central to your intelligence as electrical lights are to your home.  Researchers predict the brain is organized by a hierarchy of electrical waves that control how one neuron communicates to another neuron.  We’ve heard that external forces such as cell phone emissions, especially those that emit electromagnetic fields, […]

Question with Two Feet to Spark Curiosity

Do you question with two feet?

Target Teen Talent

It’s no secret that teens drop out of secondary schools at alarming rates, or that parents complain about wasted tax dollars in broken schools, or that faculty vent about lack of relevancy and low standards.
