Willpower: use it and it grows as you grow.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Willpower: we use it or it slips away on us.

Willpower relies on energy. Use it wisely. Use it regularly. Drain it. Rebuild it. Strengthen it.

Willpower [and its outcome, self-control]: use it or fail to have it; use it and experience personal growth.

We praise our phones by calling them "smart" then we toss them away, replacing them in their adolescence.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Our technologies are becoming as fragile as our relationships. 

Puppy Love used to apply to puppies...then it morphed toward hand-holding teenagers...now it has morphed toward hand-touched technologies.

Some never tire of fighting the same battles, using the same weapons, & meeting the same defeats. What peculiar stamina!

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It seems some people never tire of experiencing the same old problems. What peculiar stamina!

Perhaps most of us appear that way when viewed from others' perspectives. [Attribution Bias]

Perhaps when observed by others most of us appear to obstinately cling to the bad habits that limit our ability to deal successfully with other people?

Perhaps my perceptions of other people's behaviour, as I watch them struggle, are too harsh?

If you assume communication is easy, you’re dreaming alone. If you find communication is easy, you may be dreaming with others.

Shared dreams and goals, naturally, breed quality communication.

Dreams of a better future help generate a better future.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Past and future are dreams; now is a reality. All things are now; all power, all possibility, all action, is now."

British author/philosopher James Allen said that in 1903. It seems to me Allen's advice is a key to what most people refer to as 'time management'. I mean, if people pay more attention to the present and less attention to agonizing over the past and worrying about the future then they will feel less stressed...and they will feel like they have more time.

On the other hand, we should not be too harsh on dreams - only dreams of a better future generate that future. As 2 examples, Marconi proved this...so did Martin Luther King Jr.
