In pre-historic times people who didn't listen got eaten...now they propagate at will.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Could it be 21st Century predators are a forgiving lot of creatures?

Could it be Darwin was wrong?

...survival of the fittest? ... or was it survival of the most adaptable? ... or is it no survival for the least able to listen?

Assuming evolution is an accurate theory - and I'm not so sure about all the science details of that any more - regardless, if evolution theory is true:

How many generations will it take for human ears to shrink and disappear through lack of use?

Be nothing if not courageous.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It's about personal values

  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to others?
  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to ourselves?
  • If we are not courageous, how do we take chances, fail, learn and grow?

 

Other people prefer it when you are present-minded rather than absent-minded.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

'Getting present' is a Focus exercise...a mind-process of narrowing and fixing attention. 

'Staying present' is a Concentration exercise...a mind-process of holding attention.

These two mind-processes, focusing and concentrating, involve different areas of the brain and they require the development of different skill setsFor me, and it may be different for you, focusing is an exercise of thought discipline. It requires thought discipline to cause attention to dwell on the single isolated situation or topic, ignoring everything else. This discipline can be very challenging. Similarly, concentration can be challenging when tasks are tedious or uninteresting. On the other hand, most people find concentration becomes easier when the topic or situation is one they are very interested in or excited about. 

When we to want to win at all costs, our perspectives become quite blind to the realities of situations.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Some people cannot adjust their thinking to fit the realities of the situations at hand.

Some people cannot even begin to untie their emotions, so they can use logic to think about the real facts they face in situations.

Perhaps, the problem is, their Ego must cry out for help regardless of the situation they face?  

 

 

Inspiration is the music of creative intelligence.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Our gift of creative intelligence must be there to inspire ourselves and others.

Our intuition is a special gift, with deep roots in our unconscious brains [lizard brains].

Our ability to inspire is linked to our creative intelligence and intuition - a wonderful aspect of our 'human condition'.

'Hope is not a Strategy', an interesting business book by Rick Page.

"Hope is an essential ingredient of leadership." a Deepak Chopra quote from his book, 'The Soul of Leadership'

Both are accurate statements.
