Set Your Goals For the Future, Not the Present

Set Your Goals For the Future, Not the Present | Rich Man, Poor Man | Scoop.it
Trying to pursue many different directions at once, but not making progress? Frustrated that the world wants you to pick one thing, because you want to do them all?

 

The problem is you're thinking short-term, acting as if you don't do them all this week, they won't happen. The solution is to think long-term. Do just one for a few years, then another for a few years, then another.

The Pile of Dishes Syndrome

The Pile of Dishes Syndrome | Rich Man, Poor Man | Scoop.it

When you tell your brain you have one dish to wash, the brain “computes” on dish. When you repeat that sentence, the brain does not understand “one dish” anymore. It adds up and understands two dishes. If you repeat the sentence over and over, the brain will add and pile nonexistent dishes in the back of your mind.

 

Have you noticed how, sometimes, a simple chore seems so hard to complete? Well, even if you see it only to be done ones, the brain has accumulated the chore and added it to itself as many times as you have repeated the sentence.

How To Kill A Thought (In A Good Way)

How To Kill A Thought (In A Good Way) | Rich Man, Poor Man | Scoop.it
We all have thoughts we can’t seem to snuff out. Here’s how to outwit your brain and quiet the chatter.

 

A friend recently said to me, “I often feel like my thoughts are hammers, and they keep on hammering down on this thing known as my brain.” This is a pretty apt description of how a lot of people feel every day; I’ve certainly experienced it. I’ve written, here and there, about how the brain copes and how to dial down the background level of stress. But an even more fundamental question is how to deal with the negative, or otherwise undesirable, thoughts we have, on a moment-to-moment basis. In other words, when just you and your brain are alone together, how do you get it to quit assaulting you and just let you be?

 

In principle, the answer is beautifully simple – thoughts don’t have to be believed. You can just acknowledge the ridiculous or negative thoughts that pop into your head, chuckle at them, and then release them. This is the essence of mindfulness.

Working Out Doesn’t Just Make You Stronger, It Makes You Smarter

Working Out Doesn’t Just Make You Stronger, It Makes You Smarter | Rich Man, Poor Man | Scoop.it
We already know the facts: Our country is in the midst of an obesity epidemic. Few American adults exercise enough, and that poor lifestyle choice is getting handed down to our children, who are getting fat at record levels.

 

And all that obesity is affecting our health, causing heart disease, diabetes, and untold other health consequences. But what if the effects aren’t only physical?

 

This new infographic, from OnlineCollegeCourses.com points out that exercise has some great benefits for not just how our body works, but how our brains work, too. It’s clearly important for kids, who need all the brain power they can get for school, but it’s equally important for adults: A fit worker is a fast, efficient worker.

10 Ways You Can Be Mean to Yourself (and Prevent Your Own Happiness)

10 Ways You Can Be Mean to Yourself (and Prevent Your Own Happiness) | Rich Man, Poor Man | Scoop.it
No wonder many of us are not happy; sometimes we bring our misery on to ourselves by being mean to ourselves and not letting ourselves be happy and free.

 

I was catching up with my friend the other day – it took us 6 weeks to find a time to meet. I had nothing to do and flexible with my time as I was not working and spend my days recuperating. However, she was either travelling for work, or in the office slaving through projects. Then when she had time she would attend birthday dinners and farewell parties and other invitations. It seemed she never had a moment where she could decide what to do – she was always obliged to do something else or be somewhere for somebody else.

 

I was enlightened after our “catch up” coffee, which she had to cut short too because work called her and she went back to the office on a Sunday afternoon.

 

We are quite mean to ourselves without knowing.

Reclaiming your Lunch Break

Reclaiming your Lunch Break | Rich Man, Poor Man | Scoop.it

Breaks are important, as they give you enough downtime to refresh yourself, regain some of that lost motivation, and focus for the rest of the day. When you're rushing through lunch every day just to get back to work, you're really just making yourself worse off. Once you accept that taking a break and concentrating on you will make you more productive, it'll be easier to think of the work you have to finish as a little less urgent.
