Self Reflection – My mission each day is to give my very best effort.
Each morning when I open my eyes, I acknowledge that I have been given another opportunity to do my best, so I commit to giving 100% effort to make the most of this gift.
I’m sorry for all you January-lovers out there, but this month has a lot of things going against it: the cold, the dark, the end of all things merry and bright. It’s the month where everyone kick-starts their resolutions and goals for the year, so it’s kosher to do not-fun things like eating healthy, hitting the gym and saving money.
Well, I say take advantage of January and embrace all that it offers. Eat healthy. Hit the gym. Save as much money as you can.

Is math innate to humans?
An interesting controversy in philosophy, linguistics and psychology is whether or not numbers and counting is an innate human ability or something learnt. There is a certain portion of what we think of a consciousness that is strictly speaking instinct…our animal brains…but how much? One of the areas thought to be instinctual was our ability to count…that anyone anywhere at any time in history could count and understand simple numbers; such 1, 30, 523, etc.
Practice may NOT make perfect: Innate talent is what's required for greatness in areas such as games or music
People have long spent hours working on achieving greatness in their chosen field on the assumption that practice will make perfect.
However, new research suggests that their efforts may all have been in vain.
A study has shown that differences in practice levels are not enough to explain why people differ in ability when taking part in activities such as playing chess or music.

I'm psyched!!! :)
Are you relying on will power keep your commitments? Or worse, blaming a lack of will-power when you don’t keep them?
I called it my HAW: half-ass workout. There was no psyching myself up, no bare-knuckling, no internal pep-talks. I just did it. I would simply show up, go through the motions, against my will, and get it over with. It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t pleasant, it was mediocre at best. And it was way better than nothing. It didn’t take will power to do this, it simply took getting in the car and driving to the gym.
Microsoft wants you to get psyched for WinPho7 development at MIX
Are you psyched for Windows Phone 7 Series development? Why not? Damn your eyes! Well, I guess I can understand a little “once bitten, twice shy” attitude after Windows Mobile’s slow-motion flaming zeppelin trajectory during the last couple years. But be honest: WinPho7 looks pretty awesome, and there might be some opportunities for some pretty bad-ass stuff that Apple won’t allow, and Google… well, you could probably do it for Android right now, but maybe you have a good reason not to.
