The world is so alive

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”

Albert Einstein ( 1879 – 1955 )

I’d like to thank everyone in the world for letting me be a part of it. Conscience of this fact or not. I am so happy to be alive. This is such a fascinating and fragile planet. We need to treat it right. The chemistry of earth is unique.  Conditions are just right for life. Plants defy gravity. Thank you for capillary action!

Ninety-nine percent of the species that have existed are extinct. The dead are many while the living are few. Just the fact that this planet harbors life is a miracle. Have a conversation with a duck. 

What kind of sentient being are you? 

We need more leaders in this world. A leader needs the ability to take charge. You need to be able to make decisions quickly and appropriately. Strategy is the application of resources to attain a goal. Always lead by example. Communication is key. Language is the basis for civilization.

People depend on you and you need to be there for them. Learn to be in the service of others. It’s not about you; it’s about making their lives better. When angry take no action. Don’t lose control. React with your brain and not your emotions.

Always consider the three levels of operations: strategic level, operational level and tactical level. In war speed kills: one can achieve overwhelming force by substituting velocity for mass. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty.

Power of music

Don’t mess your brain chemistry. You don’t need antidepressants or opioids. Too many people die from drugs. You have music.

Music is one of the sweetest treats. You know what I do when I get bored, feel blue, am in a bad mood or in need of some inspiration? I play a couple of songs I love. It puts you in a great mood. It works. Try it!

Sometimes I’ll listen to music and a book at the same time. That’s one way to train your brain. 

Importance of chess

Chess is exercise for your brain. There are many valuable life lessons to be learned from the game of chess. It’s a form of art among many: art of numbers, art of war, art of people, art of math. Sometimes you have to be ruthless. 

Always take an opportunity when it presents itself. You may not get a second chance. Think one step ahead of your opponent. Pay close attention to detail at all times. Never underestimate the power of combinations

Be creative. Stay focused on your goals and don’t be easily distracted.  Be a an effective problem solver. Formulate a plan. Adjust plan as needed if circumstances change. Sometimes sacrifice is necessary. 

Take your time. Be patient and the outcome will be in your favor. Always be determined and faithful to your moral virtues. Do not give up until your heart stops beating.

Develop pattern recognition. Learn to foresee and prevent problems. If you want to succeed you need to recognize the patterns of success. Triple check all your calculations before you execute. Timing is everything.

 Movement is life

I feel great and love my life. I’ve received some exceptional advice via audio book on staying fit, jovial, and healthy. I also have a degree in molecular biology. Good health is centered around your blood. It is necessary to get your heart pumping and get the blood flowing through your vessels at a higher rate than usual. This gives your body the opportunity to flush out waste products and enhance your nutrient delivery.

Once a day do some exercise of any kind. When in doubt do push-ups, sit-ups and run around the block. Stand up at least once an hour. It takes about an hour for blood to start pooling in your feet when you sit down. Eating correctly is equally important for good health. 

I adhere to the paleolithic diet. This includes: meat, grains, fruit, nuts, vegetables and water.                      

Not included: high fructose corn syrup, salt, sugar, processed/frozen foods and energy drinks
