Get Smart, Increase Brain Power with Mental Photography

Do you want Good Grades, Study Little, AND Have a Life?

This is an issue that presents itself time and again. Students of all ages benefit when they increase brain power. Since the subconscious mind is the doer, put it to work for you to allow you to excel, and make your life more enjoyable. Good clear mind techniques are the vehicle. Like a muscle, your mind becomes stronger. Even the power of thought over your obstacles becomes second nature.

It has been… Continue

Wait A Minute! You PRACTICE Sports, Music, Dance, Speaking, and Writing But, You DON'T PRACTICE Organizing?

We lose Millions of Dollars, Billions of Dollars because we can't find and use stuff when we need them.

Clearly, THE KEY at the root of our losing so much is that either we or someone in charge of information hasn't helped things be "findable".

Far too many of us are lost when it comes to organizing ourselves.

Far, far, FAR too many of those who are unorganized merely give into to this malady as if it were permanent, unassailable, unconquerable.…

How Strong Are Your Habits?

They say the secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine and the below addresses it very well. Although many have claimed fame to it, the official author is anonymous. I came across this a number of years back and it struck a strong cord with me then as it does now. I printed it out and I have it hanging on my wall in my office so that I can be reminded of the important lesson it reminds us of.

This has made such a strong impact on my life that I wanted to… Continue

Having a Little Fun for the Time Being!

Over the years I have had a lot of fun with this:

"For the Time Being,..."

Now, am I talking about a timing issue, or am I talking about an entity? This play on words can really get out of hand. I like to think that there is this benevolent being that dishes out time like the local restaurant dishes out pastries. Sort of like Santa Claus that hands out extra 'TIME'.

So we irreverently recognize this being when we offhandedly mention "For The… Continue

The secret of "The Secret" and of Life

Or should I say I have "realized" the secret. Please bear with me for a moment...

At this point, I believe most people are familiar with the books, movie, and discussion surrounding "The Secret". If anyone has not, the movie site is here: - the book can be found on Amazon here: - and discussions abound. However, there is a secret to "The Secret"!

My life so far, has been much like most… Continue

The Problem with Problems, or Learning to Deal With Problems


Everyone has problems. If you don’t have any problems, you are most likely dead or delusional.

Problems are like loose change. You find them ‘around’ you. You find it in your sofa or chair, on the floor of your car, on the dressing table. There is usually not enough value yet to really pay attention to unless it really starts building up. (This is also how most people look at problems. They are ignored until they get big enough.) After you accumulate… Continue

I Just Want a Job: Words That Will Crush Any Interview

Reposted from The ResumeWonders Blog

“I just want a job” or “I’ll take anything” are comments I hear very often as I am working with clients. I also heard this from almost every job seeker I spoke with at a recent job fair I helped out with. Although many job seekers feel this way it is vital not to say or project this feeling to contacts, networking acquaintances, recruiters and most of all during an… Continue

Revolutionizing the Way We Learn - Mental Photography

by David Jurewicz

Revision & Foreword by Shannon Panzo

I recently was going through some old archives and came across a few articles that have stood the test of time. This just happens to be one of those articles. Even the term from over a decade ago, Brain Plasticity, has made a comeback and easily explains why, even though every cell of our body is replaced every 7 years, the brain can continue to store and recall all the information you were ever exposed to. Now that is… Continue
