Self Improvement / 8 of the Best Secrets to Self-Improvement
« on: March 21, 2020, 05:34:56 PM »
1. Start Your Day Off Right:
One of the best ways to kick off your day is by waking up earlier. By doing so, you'll be able to be more productive throughout the day because it gives you a chance to eat a healthy breakfast, exercise, relax, plan your day or catch-up on emails. All of these components not only make you more productive, it will also assist you in concentration, handling problems, enduring physical activities, making you more optimistic, and improve your overall health.

2. Be Kind and Generous
Whether it's helping an employee on a project, holding the door for an elderly neighbor, or volunteering or donating to a non-profit, being generous is a rewarding experience that can help make you a better individual.

Even showing your kindness and generosity by doing something as simple as smiling can improve your mood, reduce stress, make your more approachable, and put others around you in a better mood.

3. Accept Who You Are
Most guys would love to be Tom Brady. After all, he has a couple of Super Bowl rings and is married to a supermodel. The thing is, we're not Tom Brady. Instead of trying to be someone you are not, focus on accepting who you are. While Tom Brady may seemingly have it all, there are skills and talents you possess that he never will.

4. Learn Something New
Whether it's learning a new language, how to code, preparing Thanksgiving dinner, or playing a new sport, learning a new skill or talent is one of the most effective ways to improve yourself. It not only opens your mind, it makes you more well-rounded, increases your memory, and helps you get out of that dreaded comfort-zone. And, with podcasts, instructional apps, and free education classes, learning something new has never been more convenient.

5. Be Afraid
We're all afraid of something. It could be being terrified of public speaking, experiencing startup failure, or screaming every time you come across a spider. Fear, however, can prevent you from growing and bettering yourself. Addressing your fear and facing it head-on is one the most powerful ways that you can improve your life because it can keep you from fulfilling your dreams.

6. Replace Bad Habits
We also have bad habits - like smoking, eating fast food, oversleeping, or always getting trapped in toxic relationships - and quitting them can be a challenge. Continuing these bad habits though won't assist you in self-improvement because most of the time they hold you back from doing the things that you always wanted to - try hiking if you're a smoker - and can be detrimental to your health.

Instead of filling your life up with these bad habits, replace them with new and positive habits - such as going to the gym or trying out new restaurants. Not only will you be healthier and happier, you will get a chance to enjoy the life experiences you've been missing out on.

7. Believe in Yourself
This isn't as hokey as you may think. Believing in yourself really starts with setting achievable and attainable. While we all would love to be the next Steve Jobs or Oprah Winfrey, the chances are that you will never reach that goal. And when that happens, we give up and stay in the same place that we are. But when you believe in yourself, you're increasing the chances of making yourself happier and more content.

To set realistic goals, write down the things that you want to change. Make sure that it's positive and as specific as possible. For example, instead of saying that you want to be less stressed at work, your goal could be to walk 15 minutes at lunch.

8. Take a Break
How do you expect to be successful, productive, and happy in life if you're always running on empty? You need to give yourself a break occasionally to enjoy your life. It could be taking the kids to the beach, going out to dinner with friends, or traveling to a new and exciting part of the world. Whatever you decide, getting away from the daily grind gives you the opportunity to recharge the batteries and discover new interests.

1. Ask Basic Questions: It’s tempting to imagine that good critical thinkers ask erudite, convoluted questions when they’re trying to solve a problem. However, the truth is actually the opposite. The better you are at critical thinking, the more fundamental and clear your questions become. To enhance your questioning when problem-solving (and thereby improve your critical thinking abilities), make sure you break questions down.

Suppose you encounter a new problem, in work or life, and aren’t sure what to do. Start by asking the following:

What information about this problem do you already have?
How do you know the above information?
What is your goal and what are you trying to discover, prove, disprove, support or criticize?
What might you be overlooking?
These types of questions encourage you to get right to the heart of a problem, interrogating it for simple solutions before assuming complexity.

If it helps, try writing down the answers to the above four questions when faced with a problem, to help yourself remember your process as you go through it. You can use the same strategy to try and coax someone else through a problem when they bring it to you.

Once again, this shows how critical thinking is important from an interpersonal perspective, not just a cognitive perspective.

2. Be Aware Of Your Mental Process: People who assume they’re good critical thinkers often turn their analytical abilities outwards, arrogantly critiquing other people. However, being a genuinely skilled thinker involves a lot more self-reflection.
In particular, you want to keep an eye on your own mental process; where it started, what it looks like, and where it’s going. Our brains are incredibly impressive and can sort through information at an amazing rate, but this lightning-fast work can encourage us to ignore important factors.

3. Adjust Your Perspective: As noted above, being more mindful of your own biases is a great help in critical thinking. However, it’s only step one in a gradual perspective shift.

One useful thing you can do is read the literature on biases and how they operate. For example, in the field of “CV studies”, researchers show how identical CVs can receive different evaluations depending on whether the name placed on the top sounds male or female, foreign or familiar, and so on.

Meanwhile, there are is all sorts of interesting work on how situational factors influence our seemingly staple character traits. For example, we make different decisions depending on things like hunger, the color of a room, whether we had to climb a flight of stairs, and so on.

4. Think In Reverse: Thinking in reverse is another fascinating and effective technique, especially when you’re stuck trying to puzzle through a difficult problem.

Thinking in reverse won’t always get you an immediate solution to a problem. However, it jolts you out of perceiving the problem in the same old way, which is often all you need to get onto the road to success. Further, flipping the assumed direction of causation is a particularly useful trick in relationships, one that discourages blame

5. Develop Foresight: While one of us are likely to become psychic anytime soon, we can get a lot better at predicting the impact of the choices we make (and the things we say). Consider that good foresight is an asset no matter what you’re trying to achieve. Whether you’re at a job interview, trying to market a business or attempting to date, you’ll be better able to make the right decisions if you can already see the consequences further down the line.

How do you develop your capacity for foresight, thereby improving your critical thinking more broadly? Make sure you take the time to look at all angles of a potential decision.

Mind Mapping / Tips for Using Mind Maps
« on: October 21, 2019, 05:49:16 PM »
1. One central idea, word or image – This helps automatically focus the eye and brain and gives clarity.

2. Use Colours – Colour boosts your ability to remember and allows you to better organise, categorise, order, code and learn.

3. Apply codes – Codes help you make immediate connections between different parts of your mind map. These could include ticks, crosses, triangles, underlines etc

4. One word per line – These words act as prompts and because a single word can have billions of possible associations, you have associational freedom.

5. Connect lines – this enables you to connect thoughts in your mind.

Mind Mapping / 5 Ways of Mind Mapping that Can Improve Your Life
« on: October 21, 2019, 05:47:57 PM »
1. Radiant Thinking

Mind mapping helps you think from a given central point and allows you to think in all directions in quick succession.

Although the mind map is drawn on a two-dimensional piece of paper, it represents a multi-dimensional reality that encompasses color, space, logic etc.

2. Creativity

Creativity is inherent in all of us but stays dormant the less it is stimulated or explored.

Flexibility has been identified as a key element of creative thinking. Other elements include:

Being able to combine unusual elements together
Ability to create new associations from existing ideas
Reversing and turning existing ideas on their head etc.
Different colours, shapes, and dimensions help us think creatively because they engage our emotions and the way we see things.

3. Concentration

I have noticed a spike in my ability to concentrate since I started using mind maps in all aspects of my life rather than just ad-hoc.

Creating a mind map is actually quite relaxing and forces you to stay in the moment and lets your brain do the work of bringing forth ideas.
I use mind maps for such things as making my tasks for the day, preparing for meetings on the go or even writing the weekly meal plan.

4. Better Memory

The two main factors that determine your ability to recall anything are association and emphasis.

The majority of note taking and note making in schools and in our workplaces typically follow 3 patterns

Making lists creates a sense of “coming to an end” when used for writing down ideas. Mind maps by their nature are never-ending as your thoughts make multiple connections from point to point.

5. Productivity

Practically, I am able to do a tonne more because I ideate alot quicker, go deeper with my ideas and follow them through with immediate action points.

My doing aspect further to mind mapping, therefore, flows more naturally, resulting in higher quality and richer work with multiple dimensions captured.

1. You can learn whatever you want:
You can pick the program of your dreams in traditional education, too, but that would involve traveling away from home, living in a completely unknown city, and struggling in an extremely competitive learning environment.

2. Comfort:
Forget about attending classes for hours, sitting in an uncomfortable chair, and suffering from back pain by the end of the day. You will not be bound to physical class session when you opt for online education. All lectures and needed materials are provided via online platforms, so you’ll easily access them from the comfort of your home.

3. Online courses look great on a resume:
It doesn’t matter where your career stands at this moment; an online program will always look good on your resume. It will show potential employers that you’re committed to learning and you’re eager to obtain more knowledge and new skills.

4. Self-paced learning:
When you start browsing through interesting online courses and programs, you’ll notice the Self-Paced label on most of them. What does this mean? Self-paced learning means that the students can start completing the targets at any time, and he can arrange a learning schedule that meets his individual needs.

5. Lower costs:
The fact that online programs are cheaper when compared to the ones held in a traditional campus setting is enough to convince you to consider them. The average tuition for online courses depends on multiple factors, so it varies from one program to another.

Most Important Ethical Terms and Principles:
1. Values:
The values of a person can be defined as the acts and actions which we make in our daily life. The true values of a person are devotion, respect, hard work and love. These acts of values make a person more valuable. These values tell more about a person’s behaviour and responsive qualities which he can posses during work.

2. Morals:
Morals are the certain duties which he needs to do for the betterment of society. More over, these are certain duties which make the society work in a synchronized manner. These morals apply to every single human being of the society and they can’t be judged in a specific manner, because the things in moral are either right or wrong.

3. Integrity:
Integrity means to be always honest and sincere under any circumstances. When any individual shows integrity in a professional environment and his work, it means that the person can be trusted as well as he is an honest man to rely on. The person who is honest and sincere always sustains for a longer duration in the company as compared to others.

4. Character:

These are certain rules and regulation fixed by you yourself. These rules define you and put a limit to events that are dangerous for your life style. A man with rules always shapes up in the laws of the company and work accordingly in the best way possible, and a man with no rules always lands up in troubles. These laws give us the ability to differentiate between right and wrong.

6. Dedication:
This is also a person defining ethic. The stronger dedication in work, the greater the output and results. Dedication in work makes a man stronger for tough situations and he also becomes a key player in motivating the others during the hard times.

7. Accountability of responsibility:
The more a person is responsible in nature, the more efficiently and responsibly he will do the given task. Responsibility towards everything such as parents, family, society, nature, works, office, etc are certain things which not only should be kept in mind but also these must be followed by every human being for a healthier environment.
