Thought for the week – 19

Hi there

A brief one this week but what about the potential impact!

Scientists have long held that human beings use a mere 5% capacity of our brains.

Just suppose we decided to use an extra 1%. We could get up ten minutes earlier and, on top of that, watch ten minutes less television every day for a year. We could devote that time to learning something that really interested us and that we could do in our own homes, fitting it around existing routines.

It doesn’t have to be connected to what we do for a living – it could be a new language, stamp collecting, yoga, meditation, genealogy, investment, photography – use your imagination!

At the end of the first year we would have accumulated over 128 hours worth of knowledge or experience of our new subject: That’s the equivalent of 16 eight-hour days!

Don’t you think we’d be pretty ‘up’ on our chosen subject by then? And all for 20 minutes (and maybe an extra 1% effort) a day!

What could you enjoy learning, starting today?

"I was very impressed by Linda's determination to help and the constructive, but persistent, manner in which she identified issues and then tried to resolve them. After recent progress I was again reaching a stage where I seemed to be spinning my wheels, and she has given me fresh impetus to start moving forward again."
