The present time has one advantage over every other – it is our own. Charles Caleb Colton
It seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything you need to do, but if we want to achieve much more, we must find the way to use our time effectively.
Time is our most precious resource, so being clear on what we are going to do, when we are going to do it, and what we are not going to do can make a significant difference in our lives.
But, is time a perception? How does the brain experiences time?

Most of us are not aware that every human interaction involves the process of persuasion and influence.
The fact is that we can persuade others to help us or we can be persuaded to help them.
Motivation is the key to persuasion. Our job is to find out what motivates other people.
President Eisenhower once said, “Persuasion is the art of getting people to do what you want them to do, and to like it.”
Influencing and motivating others can help us achieve our goals and achieve higher personal power.
Is it possible to capture and communicate anything of value in a single sentence?

Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in. – Leonardo da Vinci
After reading the bestsellers books of Walter Isaacson on Steve Jobs and Albert Einstein, I came to appreciate how talented Mr Isaacson is as an author.
In this magnificent biography of Leonardo Da Vinci, Mr Isaacson shows how, from Leonardo’s genius skills, we can get inspired, develop our potential, discover with passionate curiosity, careful observation, and imagination.
I took the following excerpts from the book as a reminder of what Leonardo Da Vinci did during his lifetime as well as the skills and great ideas from this amazing person. I hope you enjoy it just as much.
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (15 April 1452 – 2 May 1519), more commonly Leonardo da Vinci or simple Leonardo was an Italian Renaissance polymath whose areas of interest included invention, drawing, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history and cartography.

The body is very smart, it cannot tell the difference between a factual situation or an imagined thought.
Thoughts that activate emotional responses in the body may appear so quick that before the mind has had time to articulate them, the body has already delivered them with an emotion, and that emotion has turned into a reaction.
Have you ever had fearful or worrisome thoughts? Most of us have experienced them at some point. When we feel we are in ‘danger’, our heart beats fast, muscles contract, breathing becomes rapid. But the danger might be only mental fiction; we may be lying in a warm and comfortable bed at night.
To take total control of our mind, we need to recondition our body to a new mindset. We need to create a training routine for our brain so that body and mind work together.
In my previous post, Can You Use Your Mind to Create Your Reality? I shared how our brain is in regular communication with our body. The mind is continuously monitoring the way the body is feeling.
Therefore, if we focus on negative thinking, we create our unhappiness, but unhappiness is never the situation, it is only the way we think about it.
