Create your own relationships

Really interesting post on relationships and how they are all in our heads. This is really useful for sales where you project the conversation. If you think that you are being annoying then you are being annoying. Stay positive and smile, even if you are on the phone:

Where do all your relationships exist?  They exist in your thoughts.  Your relationship with another person is whatever you imagine it to be.  Whether you love someone or hate someone, you’re right. : Steve Pavlina’s Personal Development Blog

Watch what you eat – cutting down on energy bars

The energy bar has become the band aid for our awful diets. More and more I find myself eating an energy bar instead of a piece of fruit. Well that has stopped as of last night. I read this great article at active.com and it points out some good facts about the energy bars:
Active.com – Food variety: The spice of life:

Snacks: Be creative and bypass yet-another rice cake, pretzel or energy bar. How about almonds and dried fruit, yogurt with granola, apple with low-fat cheese, vegetable soup with rye crackers, graham crackers with peanut butter? Target two foods per snack (and three+ foods per meal). Consider cutting back on energy bars for routine snacks. Many are little more than sugar coated vitamin pills with a little added protein. They commonly lack fiber and phytochemicals — the important components of the fruits they tend to displace from the athlete’s snack menu.

So last night I went and bought 4 cantaloupes, a bag of oranges, a bag of apples, 4 pears, strawberries, and almonds. Now I have to eat this stuff before it goes bad, so I am going to be eating a lot of fruit which should help a lot.

Now I just need to cut the beer!

Review: Nova – Family that Walks on All Fours

Up late working on working it out and I have the telly runnin in the background. Nova comes on and has a story about a family in Hungary with 6 some children who walk on all fours. Naturally I am intrigued as there are a number of theories and ideas about how and why this occurs.

At the start they mention that the family is shunned by the townsfolk as the children are seen as bad omens. Then we go into science and evolutionary concepts are entered and then genetics and lots of very interesting things that I really want to hear more about. Just as everything starts getting really good they cut out of the documentary format and mention how the townsfolk are upset about the scientists studying the people they consider bad omens. They are upset because their religion is not happy about the theory of evolution and the local police have to come on by to sort it out.

10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job

Excellent stuff and I agree with all of it. Now I just need to make it happen!
10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job:

It’s funny that when people reach a certain age, such as after graduating college, they assume it’s time to go out and get a job.  But like many things the masses do, just because everyone does it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea.  In fact, if you’re reasonably intelligent, getting a job is one of the worst things you can do to support yourself.  There are far better ways to make a living than selling yourself into indentured servitude. :
