It can play a central role in the area of self-help movements edging the participant towards self-awareness and success in their chosen endeavor. It can involve your psychic ability as well.

It is concerned with matters of the spirit. However, spirituality is such a wide term that it references many meanings. It is further the conscious communing with the divine.

A Return To Reading: Elegance and Ecology

I’m a bit ashamed to say that I haven’t been reading very much lately.  I have three Kindle library books out and I’ve already had to renew them once.  That gives me four more weeks to finish them before they’re due.  I have also borrowed two books that I need to read and return.  I hope to get all five done in a month’s time.  It’s my Return to Reading challenge.

Reading is a habit, but, unfortunately, it’s one that is easily broken.  I forget for a few days and suddenly it’s two weeks later and I haven’t read a thing.  It’s bad for my brain and it’s especially bad for my practice tests writing gig.

Fortunately for me, I have chosen two spectacular books to read first.  I don’t usually start one book before I’m done with another, but …

Sugata Mitra on Self-teaching and GED Prep

Some educational experiments prove that there must be a change in how we are being educated. In Sugata Mitra´s experiment, for instance, the biggest hit is self-teaching in groups. The same principle is used by the online courses of for preparing adults for the GED test. Students are gathered in groups and communicate with each other online via Facebook groups and commenting system, this cooperative learning technique reduces anxiety among adults going back to school, promotes better learning, improves student motivation, and increases enjoyment of the learning experience thanks to short practice tests and video lessons, says Mike Johnson from BestGEDClasses.

Useful Innovation

Have you ever tried to learn on the bed? It’s pretty hard, isn’t it? That’s because the bed and the pillow aren’t designed for reading. To do reading on the bed with comfort you will need to use a bed rest pillow. This keeps your alignment proper all the time.

The function of this type of pillow is to keep your back straight when you’re reading. This ensures that you won’t get tired easily. Another useful feature is the armrest. This simulates the feeling of sitting on a chair and reading on a desk. Read also: Finding the fish.

So the point is, they keep you comfortable and supported at the same time. This also means that you won’t slide down your pillow as you’re reading. For me, that’s a massive irritant when reading on the bed using a normal …

Make Money With Your Creativity (And Why Creatives Don’t Hire Robots)

People really don’t talk about this enough, but if you want to make money with your creativity, your product is almost secondary. Whether you’re a freelance writer, painter, potter, knitter, multimedia artist, video editor, violin maker – the product isn’t really the first and foremost in money making.

I spent nearly a decade of very sparse successes as a writer and flailing around like an idiot before I started getting guidebook work, a job as an Associate Editor at a travel website, and selling articles to magazines and newspapers, including The Boston Globe and LA Times. And I would love to save you years of flailing by telling you to stop getting hung up on your end product.

At least not exclusively. You really don’t want to end up like me, pissed off that my butlers never showed up. …

How the ad agency can choose only “good” clients

As the president of an ad agency and recruiting company who receives a barrage of phone calls each day from dot-com companies, it became apparent to me early on that I needed to develop some parameters for distinguishing good prospects from not-so-good prospects.

Parameter #1: Prospective clients that assume I’ll want to work for them just because they’re dot-coms are not-so-good prospects. Although that kind of herd mentality may be fueling the Internet rush, I’m an ex-Missourian and you’ve got to “show me” why we should do business. Do you have a sound product concept? Do you have a plan? Do you have experienced people in place to execute the plan? How are you going to fund your project? Are you willing to pay an ad agency fairly for services rendered?

Parameter #2: All of that information must be volunteered …
