Cellphones

Cellphones takes your field of influence well beyond the sphere of activity but come to think about it, it is a hindrance to creativity.

How to avoid procrastination?

How to avoid procrastination?

Video Game Strategy
 

One’s approach may be (not comprehensive here)

1. Offensive

2. Defensive

3. Neutral

4. Random

5. Cool (no procrastination)

The best approach is the last which has all the above components assessed in a fraction of a second.
I sometime call it the Moment  Meditation in action.
Only a few has that cool talent.
They are the ones who become successful.
The COOL people are actually very observant.
But many of us use the useless procrastination approach. This is the approach of the politicians who has lost touch with the common people and only move only in comfort zones.
They are inhibited by this tendency to make historical achievements.
What it does is to kill the attempt at solving a given problem from the very beginning.
Unfortunately, many of us use this method since we do not believe that some problems can be addressed, if we care to divert from the standard approach of procrastination.

This is what Professor De Bono calls Lateral Thinking.

It is not vertical or analytical or direct thinking.
Side track a bit,
Focus on the problem,
Leave behind the past experiences for a moment,
Give due attention to the subject or the problem,
To the present moment of time,
Then in a FLASH
A new solution
Springs up!

Then if we have few others with equal interest and talent get involved in the same problem we get endless stream of solutions which we have never thought of because of the redundant past experience.
We call this brainstorming and it really works.
Brainstorming is essential in marriage.
Brainstorming is a group creativity technique by which efforts are made to find a conclusion for a specific problem by gathering a list of ideas spontaneously contributed by its members.
The term was popularized by Alex Faickney Osborn in the 1953 book Applied Imagination.
If one does not use common sense what I say here is superfluous.
We use our past experience to solve a given problem.
Sometime past experience is useful.
Many a time the past experience is a hindrance.
Past experience is a hindrance to creative and pragmatic solutions.
Good examples can be taken from politicians.
When somebody is in opposition for a long period of time and then he or  she comes to power, he / she makes many mistakes due to the past misfortunes.
They have lost the ability for creative thinking.
Unfortunately this happens when one is in power too, and they do not realize what a wonderful thing to be in opposition.
The people in the opposition see the problem realistically but they do not have the muscle to power the solution through.

It is the malady of the democracy.
The same malady exists in marriage, too.
