9 year old Amira Willighagen shyly walked onto the stage as the last audition of the night on "Holland's Got Talent". After chatting with the judges, she took a deep breath, and what happened next literally stunned the thousands in attendance.

She has never taken a singing voice in her life!

Setting small goals for yourself may help motivate you more. Also, having a plan and writing it down also helps. It's always best to not put a tremendous amount of pressure on yourself from the beginning. Thinking about your goal and how happy you will be once you attain it will motivate and inspire you to work towards it. 

Erin Panaciulli's curator insight, September 6, 2014 8:51 AM

Gosh, I've had so many people tell me they aren't motivated lately. I have times that I'm not either, but I just get up and do it and that great feeling comes later. "Since motivation will not zap you like electricity, try this instead." Read below for more.

Creativity More Valuable Than Passion: An Entrepreneur's Rules of Creativity

Creativity More Valuable Than Passion: An Entrepreneur's Rules of Creativity | Daily Motivation | Scoop.it

After @Hannah Kramershared a great post about Creativity being more important for startup entrepreneurs than passion I wanted to weigh in and share related experience growing up with the right side of the brain being my dominant hemisphere (lol).

I share 5 ideas from the daughter of Gatorade's inventor:

* Creativity Bigger Predictor Than Intelligence.
* Creativity Can Be A Hard Row To Hoe.
* Creativity & Structure.
* Creativity can be learned and taught.
* Creativity happens at intersection of disciplines.

Great post hope my hard won experience contributes something helpful.

Does Radio Still Matter?

Radio is still a very effective medium in promoting the products and services of a business. Let us find out why it has never lost its touch.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, August 13, 2013 4:54 PM

Can't Agree - Radio Is The New Print
One of the inevitable results of increased control over our media consumption is the coming death of PUSH media. Despite the assurances and somewhat unfounded accolades this post claims for radio I don't see it. Radio is PUSHY and I find myself simply turning it OFF when all three stations I listen to go into a simultaneous commercial block.

The commercials are so SCREAMING LOUD and soulless that the medium doesn't seem to get it. Content is another problem. I listen to NPR and 3 variations of "classic rock" stations: soft classic rock, indy classic rock and screaming hard metal classic rock.

There is No THERE THERE
My biggest issue is not the SCREAMING or even the boring music  where one set doesn't seem to relate to the next. No my biggest issue is radio doesn't tell a story. Even on the station that has morning talk the story is always the same - some gross thing happened and isn't that funny until its sad.

No I am NOT amused. I AM captive as I drive to work, but that doesn't mean I don't have a CHOICE. We always have choices and radio exhausts my patience every time I try to give it more than a few fleeting minutes.

I remember not being able to get out of my car while listening to an NPR story. Not so much lately because I don't listen to NPR as much and because the web is where I get most of my stories.

Speaking of the web what is up with the fact that there are SO FEW URLs ever mentioned on the radio? The few URL mentions is like saying, "We are this island and you must swim to us and then stay with us". Yean not so much :).

Can Radio be retooled in a digital era? Maybe but I'm waiting for the first good example of HOW. Afraid I can't agree with the PRO RADIO slant of this post. Radio just seems LOUD and distracting. Sad since radio used to be my constant companion when I was selling bar soap for P&G and then candy for M&M's in update New York.

The web owns that space in my brain now. The web is where I find the stories that teach, entertain and that I want to share.

The "Kid Blog' is a safe and effective way to allow your students to keep up to date blogs in a secure evironment. With these blogs students can not only post their own blogs, but oarticipate in discussions.

I feel this is a gerat resourse to use within the classroom, as students and teachers can keep track of students posts and especially look at their progress throughout the year.
