The Johari Window

April 16, 2010 Leave a comment

The Johari Window was invented by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham in the 1950s as a model for mapping personality awareness. By describing yourself from a fixed list of adjectives, then asking your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list, a grid of overlap and difference can be built up.

To get started, pick the five or six words that you feel best describe you, from the list below:-

Thoughts on Achievement

April 15, 2010 Leave a comment

Every great achievement of humankind has been preceded by a long period of hard, concentrated work until the job was done. Your ability to select your most important task, to begin it, and then to concentrate on it single-mindedly until it is complete is the key to high levels of performance and personal productivity.

Rethinking Bottled Water

December 18, 2009 Leave a comment

 

Plastics and the Pacific Garbage Patch

Plastic Bottles

 I ran accross an article today that noted there had been a serious decline in sales of bottled water. The Bottled water industry believes that it is due mainly to the economic downturn. The anti bottled water movement, on the other hand, would like to claim some credit for finally moving the trend needle in the opposite direction of growth due to their continuing efforts to get people to stop drinking bottled water. And so it goes.

I took note of this article for a few reasons. It reminded me to follow up on a stories I had heard of about a vast vortex of accumulating garbage, mainly plastics, called the East Pacific Garbage Patch. I had wondered whether or not it was real and if anyone had really checked into it. I also wondered if it was true why it hadn’t gotten more attention. Turns out that apparently Oprah did get into the fray earlier this year and so the story is finally getting some traction. which is probably how I finally got wind of it.  Hey, whatever works!

Secondly, I was wondering if people really are starting to slow down on consumption of bottled water for ecological reasons rather than econonics. I was just curious enough to google the topic  and I ran accross the following videos that I share with you now. They present some disturbing facts that really caused me to rethink my use of plastics in all things, not just bottled water.

 Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no do gooder or environmental activist by any measure. Given my personal habits to this point, I risk being labeled a hypocrite even writing about this sort of thing. But it made me stop and  think. It got my attention. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with a looming global disaster that has received little attention to this point and yet we all have had a hand in creating when you think about it. Unlike Global Warming, there’s no real controversy around this and no economic interest trying to skew the  data to make a buck. off it. If anything, it’s more like pass the buck and ignore the facts even though there is mounting evidence that this garbage is entering our food chain and we are now essentially eating the poison we have been dumpin ino the ocean.  

where does it all go

 No matter where you stand on global warming and the politics of globalization, this is a real and verifiable problem that needs immediate attention. Something we can all do our part to at least begin correcting with small changes in our regular habits.

Next time you go to grab a plastic water bottle – just take a moment to think about an alternative that might work for you instead. It’s a little thing, but the cumulative effect of our casual habits are beginning to take a real toll on the prospects for the future of our planet.

The Ageloc Revolution in Anti Aging Technology

October 6, 2009 Leave a comment

 

The Ageloc Launch October 2009

The Ageloc Launch October 2009

Every once in a while, things as we know them, change in dramatic fashion on such a fundamental level that it affects all of us in one way or another. The introduction of Ageloc Technology into the anti aging arena is one of those dramatic shifts.

Nu Skin Enterprises has staked it’s future on becoming the standard bearer for what has up until now been a largely smoke and mirrors industry known as Anti Aging.

With few exceptions, Anti Aging has been mostly a clever marketing catch-phrase adopted by the cosmetics and beauty care industry to cover just about any product that hides the signs of aging. More recently, naturopathic and homeopathic entrepreneurs have begun targeting their marketing efforts on some aspects of the Wellness Industry to appeal to the booming market that exists for true anti aging products. Based largely on anectdotal responses, few of the products in this vast marketplace have been scientifically demonstrated to attack the sources of aging…. that is until now.

Based on continuing research at some of the finest  universities and research facilities in the world, Ageloc is a Technology Platform that measures the effectiveness of a varied product line bearing it’s name, in terms of anti aging. This Technology influences the Genes and their Expression Amplitude which in turn affects how your body ages and regenerates. We now know that as you age, your genes tend to dim, or more accurately, express themselves less vibrantly, meaning certain regenerative functions don’t work as well as when we are young. The result is the effects of aging.

Nu Skin Enterprises and their research partners have discovered how to measure and influence this gene expression and just as importantly, they have learned how to identify specific clusters of genes that work together to affect certain aging functions. From there, they have begun creating a pipeline of products that will for the first time attack the sources of aging from not only the outside in, but through targeted nutritional supplementation from the Pharmanex Line, the inside out.

The first of these products will be introduced to the public in January of 2010. They are being pre released in limited quantities to Nu Skins worldwide distibutor network in October of 2009.
