When it comes to bed linen, I only keep two sets of sheets per bed. I neatly fold the set of duvet, fitted sheet and three pillow cases and place them inside a matching pillowcase. This method keeps everything together and makes life much easier when it comes to finding the exact set you're looking for. Making beds has never been so joyous. And that allowed them to build a company fast. In the world of high tech--like in racing--a tiny time advantage can mean the difference between winning and getting passed. ISAAC NEWTON ATTRIBUTED HIS success as a scientist to standing on the shoulders of giants--building off of the work of great thinkers before him. Platforms are tools and environments that let us do just that. It's clear how using platforms applies in computer programming, but what if we wanted to apply platform thinking to something outside of tech startups? Say--education? In spring 2010, Dr Tony Wagner, a Harvard researcher, took a trip to Scandinavia to observe what was going on at schools in Finland, a country roughly the size and population of the US state of Minnesota. Finland's students consistently ranked at the top--or very near the top--each year on international mathematics, science, and reading tests. Finland had left the States--and pretty much everyone else--in the dust. The number one ranking itself wasn't the phenomenon (somebody's got to be number one). So it's a double-edged sword. We can't delete the Threat app from our phones, so we need to find ways to get it to work properly. The Threat app can get very overactive in people who are anxious because it immediately reacts to threats before any of the other apps get a chance to help it. The Threat app also tricks us into thinking that we should avoid things we're a bit afraid of. The problem is that avoiding things means you never know if it's as bad as you feared (it probably isn't) or if you might surprise yourself by how well you're able to cope (better than you thought, no doubt! The second circle is the achievement system, or the Drive app.

This is a really enjoyable app to have, because it helps us to play, have fun and use our talents well, and it gives us a buzz for life. It also reminds each of us of our ability to work hard for the things we want. We all like using the Drive app, because it brings us happiness, fun, excitement and a feeling that we're doing a good job at whatever we're doing. The Drive app helps us face some of our fears, as long as it joins forces with the magical powers of the Soothing app . It takes a lot of courage to be steadfast, and it takes even more courage to befriend failure, take chances and live your dreams. In the words of poet Erin Hanson of thepoeticunderground.

Befriend failure What could you do to celebrate failures and make them your friend? Sara Blakely of Spanx fame credits much of her success to her father, who encouraged his kids to fail. At the same time, I put my tongue against my palate and swallow my saliva, imagining the saliva is going down to the kidney. If I feel too exhausted and cannot make up for the energy lost through meditation, I also take a midday nap, from which I always awake reinvigorated. On average, a person needs 8 hours of sleep a day, but the most important periods are the 4 hours from 11 p. Many friends complain to me that they suffer from insomnia. One was a business tycoon. She was very busy and did not often go to bed until early morning.

Even when she was in bed, she could not fall asleep, but was always thinking about her contracts and her company. Gradually, her body rebelled. At first, she was in low spirits and dizzy during the day. Later, she started to have menstrual disorders and spots began to appear on her face. SVT STEP 4: ENHANCING THE PRESENT Insight and reprocessing helped you move from negative to neutral in step 3. Step 4 will help you move from neutral to positive. You'll use the play button again, and you'll examine what's right in your life instead of what went wrong. See yourself, your identity, and your strengths in a new way. You may find yourself understanding how your past has brought you to the place you are today, and this may help you to reframe any difficulties you've faced as learning experiences. Allow the optimistic and creative subconscious brain to view yourself in a better light. Through SVT, I'll invite you to reexamine your life through a more optimistic, gratitude-centric, and purpose-driven lens. It will be like taking a highlighter to all the times you felt strong, successful, sexy, and smart. In other words, you'll be reminded that you are innately worthy. As long as the routine is the same every night, your child will soon make the association that this pattern of behaviour is the preamble for going to sleep. Childhood sleep problems It's perfectly normal for children to experience some degree of sleep problem during the first years of their lives - for example, approximately 30 percent of families will have a problem with a baby crying during the night. Common childhood sleep problems include difficulty going to sleep and frequent nighttime waking. Problems are formally categorized in the International Classification of Sleep Disorders as Behavioural Insomnia of Childhood (see box, pp. Interestingly, most of these sleep problems in infants and pre-school children do not have a physical origin, but are behaviourally based: they result from poor sleep habits or training.

Prolonged poor sleep quality, or disrupted sleep-wake schedules, can impair a child's short- and long-term memory, attention span, academic performance and ability to undertake complex tasks. Recent studies show that children with reduced sleep duration are more likely to be overweight or obese and have problems regulating their insulin and glucose levels (the precursor to metabolic syndrome, which can in turn lead to Type II diabetes). Children who sleep for fewer than ten hours a night may have an increased risk of injury than longer sleepers - probably because a child's balance, agility and co-ordination suffer when he or she is tired. Finally, a child who has not had enough sleep will be more aggressive, irritable and emotionally fragile. I've written elsewhere about banishing the tyranny of too many toys (See Kids' stuff) and the challenge of decluttering with teenagers (See Sharing isn't always caring) but some of these points bear reiterating here. There are some particular difficulties when it comes to helping them with their own spaces, but the key point, and the one that if you follow it will get you further than anything else, is the example you set by your own behaviour. Sometimes it seems as if we expect more from children than we do of ourselves, perhaps because it's easier to badger them than to address our own shabby habits (welcome to an Introduction to Psychology everyone, today's subject is transference). This comes into particularly sharp focus with teenagers, who not only see all but certainly know all. Shore up your defences by at least beginning to tackle your own disordered spaces before you expect them to do the same. Try to group together the objects required for these things in the area where they are used to make it as easy as possible to put them away. Wherever you can, have crates, shelves and drawers to help them keep their rooms neat. Don't get too hung up on a picture-perfect scheme, just something that's practical and easy to use. You might want to colour code crates to help smaller children to help themselves - blue for soft toys, green for arts-and-crafts materials and so on. If they have a sense of ownership, they're more likely to pick up the good habits you'd like them to acquire, along with their toys. If an event was so super-extraordinarily rare An enlightened soul is not one A little heads-up on an affliction Giving love, eventually, becomes a much greater Whenever conferring with another-- Nice catch.

When you distrust, you attract the untrustworthy. The very first inkling you may have Butterflies only you can see. Laughter and tears only you can know. Man is trying to reach further, from earth into space, and man has not yet learned the nearest part of his life. The answers related to the cosmos exist closer to home. They exist within. The problem for man is that the distant drum is so appealing. Even hypnotic. We are drawn by distant dreams. Ashtavakra (you will learn about him later) says, You are what you are seeking. Man is perfect, and according to the wise men of yesteryear, we have always been free. Our projections have always been our barrier. This is why we need yoga. Starting this week, schedule at least one uninterrupted block of time to work on your most important task. Using your action guide, write what you will work on, for how long and when. Focusing on one big project at a time It's tempting to work on many different projects at once. It gives you the impression you accomplish a lot, makes it less likely you get bored, and tricks you into believing you're likely to be successful. You need to hustle as they say.
