All Addictions All the Time Help for

Typing with your fingers, hunting and pecking with a pointer OR do you use both thumbs? Are you more highly evolved and search by voice? Or are you always trying to figure it out.

Seneca Rewritten for all of Us

Hurry up and live, and consider each day as a completed life...

One who believes every day that life has been complete enjoys peace of mind.
S/he enjoys the present without depending on what does not yet exist...
S/he does not hurl toward an uncertain goal, for s/he is satisfied with what s/he has.
Nor is s/he satisfied with little, for what s/he possesses is in the universe...
"All this belongs to me".

-- Seneca, Roman Philosopher and Statesman via ME Middleton

Taking care of yourself and your gifts is a way of honoring the Giver. Live Now.

I love that it integrates Attention and Relevance as essential to learning. This slide show is a nice introduction to anyone who wants to teach something.

Dividing the Workload

Dividing the Workload

A manager, teacher, supervisor of any kind who does not know how to divide workload can ruin the productivity of those they employ if they cannot determine optimal levels of productivity. When it is so hard for us to self-report accurately as human, how can we hope to learn how to do it for others with trial and error.
