Retirement  |   

What's different now is that baby boomers are either continuing to work much longer, or approaching work not as an afterthought but as a pillar of their "retirement" plans, as oxymoronic as that sounds.

In the past, I often talk about the power of a daily diet of reading inspirational quotes. The reality is that a lot of us do not commit to add this vital component to our daily routine when in fact it is so easy to do, very meaningful and powerful, but so easy also not to do.

Inspirational Quotes  |   

The people who have succeeded in any walk of life have had to take small steps over and over again to get where they are whether that being a doctor ... or a computer programmer ... And, so it is the same when you are developing a meaningful and full life. We need to proceed as if we are constructing a ship, or a house, or creating a work of art. We do not become masters of our own destiny in a day, nor do we develop the kind of outlook where we can turn negatives into positives, or disappointments into valuable lessons of life, or change adversity into opportunities.

The more drastic action is to remove all those social media apps that do not provide benefits to your life, to your well-being or to your freedom of mind. This means that you remove, delete in fact, any social media application that does not meet your definition of being free from those who simply love to gossip, those who ask inappropriate questions, those who live each day focusing on social media rather than what I call real meaningful person to person exchanges, and from those who seem to spend their time devoted to the negativity around them rather than contributing to the positive aspects of life.

To me, a genius is someone with a brilliant mind who has had great accomplishments in a challenging field, and changed the world in some meaningful way. As vague as this definition may seem, the essence of genius is limitless. There appear to be no bounds to what geniuses can accomplish. To define it much further, is to limit something that is supposed to be limitless.
I. C. Robledo, The Secret Principles of Genius

R. P. Suri

... growth is not a point to reach and then say one is finished. It means that as we go through life, we need to be continuously actively involved in being more each day. One needs to view each day as only a starting point to continue to embellish that which is good, caring, meaningful and decidedly compassionate. It means that each day is not filled with excuses, or wanting to skip a step to reach some defined end. For, it should be understood that there is no end but instead a continuous ability to be more than you were the day before.
