Yeah tell me about it. I usually use a combination of plugins to protect myself (askmet, wordfence, etc.) but this is good ol’ WordPress just the same. It’s not perfect on my end either, but manageable at least. Best of luck…
Glad to hear it – this is a provocative subject in it’s own right, and deserves it’s own book, truly, if you think of it.
I want to do a book/program called “Glitches of the Western World” which describes modern society as a sort of “Hyper-digitized, video game” with it’s own series of “bugs” which, unless we’re careful, can also cause our own MINDS to glitch, freeze or otherwise malfunction. Let me know your thoughts.
Thanks! That was my favorite part too (I like the idea of culminating up to the deep principle or fundamental truth that guides the technique). Hey check this out…just realized there’s a terrific “Aesop Fable” that makes the same point, but more in a short, funny analogy. Enjoy here: http://bit.ly/oPCPhj
Much success and luck to you…and if any thing I’ve been able to put together helps you succeed – as a fellow writer, fellow publisher, fellow conscious thinker, etc etc. – I am more than honored. Enjoy the book and let me know your thoughts.
THANK YOU Camilla…trust me when I say this means a lot. Glad to hear from you, love the feedback and hope to speak more soon. Look forward to more great videos, blogs, etc. and keep up the great internal-work you’re doing.
Actually Filip, no, I can’t. I have no recollection of where I originally even found the picture, let alone who drew it. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help (I should of credited the artists initially), but take care.
There, I described self-esteem as “your relationship with own process of perception,”: the degree to which you trust and honor what you experience, think and feel, as well as how this rather abstract “relationship” plays out in things like “confidence,” “self-talk,” “self-motivation,” etc. etc.
But I feel you, “self-confidence” is a fairly ambiguous term thrown around thoughtlessly – like what you say when you run out of actual advice because it seems to apply to everything – and I don’t even have a scientific definition myself (and here I am publishing material on this stuff).
Thanks Brian (coolest name I ever heard in my life, by the way). It’s actually going to be the GREEN, after all…with an earthy, light brown back-tone to it. After putting this out, a great super-design expert friend of mine agreed to help a little bit (I guess they like when you take initiative). I was thinking the green from jump too, but thought other’s opinions would be great. THANKS ;)
Thanks to both of you, and yeah, that picture had me rolling too…originally, I had a pic there of a brother reading, but then stumbled on the meditation image while playing around with some old files and said, “hold up…this got to go in there.”
Originally, I was also going to have a FOURTH fear, something along the lines of “the fear of missing out/being left behind” but it wasn’t coming together as well as I wanted it to, so I scraped that. Stay tuned for more blogging goodness…
Thanks man…the deep part is, USING THIS TECHNIQUE REVOLUTIONIZED EVERYTHING I DO WITH THE BLOG.
For instance, I measure how time and energy I spend working on different aspects of the site, and when I saw that blogging was taken up far too much of my time, I realized that I needed to stop doing it everyday.
Once I saw the metrics, I knew I couldn’t keep it up long term, but there was a big dilemma: how do I “blog without blogging??? How do I keep such great content churning without taking away from the executive and marketing responsibilities???
It took me a LOOOONG time to figure out, but with a little bit of inventiveness I finally had the idea to do all my blogging for the week over the week-end instead of daily. Normally I would draft a post at night and finalize it in the early morning (sneaking away during work hours if needed), but now I just bang those babies out in one session…like an assembly line or something.
This also eliminates transition time: I no longer have to shift between blogging and networking, etc. etc., which is a big drag on efficiency, and I owe it all to the metrics
