Nothing can cure the soul
This is the first post in a new series - "Using Your Senses To Transform Your Life.” Most of us probably assume that we make use of all 5 our senses each and every day, but take another look. Do you think that you use them to their fullest potential?
Leonardo da Vinci, the great Renaissance painter and sculptor, said that the average person looks without seeing, listens without hearing, and talks without thinking. Doesn’t this describes most of us?
Follow these series if you would like to discover the full potential of your senses and how you can use them for powerful self improvement which will lead to happiness, healing, and greater life fulfilment.
See how one may fine tune your senses to make much more sense of the world. After all, you are the writer of your own story, and your perception creates your own world.
A Five Step Exercise to Enhance Your Senses
For 5 weeks, we will focus on one sense each week. For instance, week one you could pay particular attention to everything you see that week. Do not then pay to much attention to your other four senses in your “sight” week. In a "touch week" focus on feeling various textures, and so on.
Perform this exercise over the next 5 weeks, concentrating on a different sense each week.
Repeat this exercise from time to time to stay in touch with all of your senses so you can reap the very most benefits from all five of them.

Commitment means to be dedicated to a specific cause. To take full ownership for what you want to achieve. Without commitment, self-discipline towards goal achievement is not possible. Once you have committed yourself to something, you will do it without hesitation. But if you are not committed to the outcome, you will battle to keep going and achieve your goal. This is significant, as we need to examine our commitment towards a specific goal first—as self-discipline is not possible without having commitment first. When you feel discouraged, it is of uttermost importance to have the commitment to keep your motivation going. This is where commitment can make the difference between succeeding or not going anywhere.
Here are a few tips on commitment.
While it is a given that starting a new business is associated with sacrifice and stress; you must keep perspective. Your family life should not be sacrificed.
Possible consequences of a new business in a family:
Time management in your new business.
Use Your Time Well...
Set up a work routine and stick to it. Only plan for 4-5hours of real work per day. We're always more focused and productive within a limited time. More work hours doesn't mean more productivity.
It is a must that time limits are set on working hours and that you adhere to it. Limit your normal working hours to office hours during weekdays. If you need to work on weekends, make sure that Sundays are free at least. Be free at least one day a week, to focus on yourself and the family, and to do things together and relax. Due to modern technology, it is quite common to receive e-mail and SMS messages from your business after hours. Again, it is important that there are definite time limits set after which no emails and texts messages should be answered.
Proper time management is sometimes difficult, but if the benefits are taken into account, it is worthwhile. Take the first 20-30 minutes of every day to plan the rest of your day. Do not start with anything else until you complete your time plan. The time you schedule to schedule time are of utter importance.
Do not multi-task. Focusing on one thing at a time will double your productivity, which can mean the difference between success and failure in a small business. Set a timer to force yourself to be limited to do one thing at a time. Focus on that one task until it’s done.
To make the best use of your time in your business, your day should consist of a series of goals that have specific milestones. Break larger goals into smaller steps, for more effective accomplishment. Set some goals to be completed before lunch and some for after lunch.
Start Early. To increase productivity, have an early start to your day. The more time you take to think and plan, the better organized you will be. Also get into the habit of going to bed at a reasonable time to be able to rise early.

What drives an explorer to explore distant places?
What makes a child ask so many questions?
What about you? Do you have new ideas or are you looking for answers to intriguing questions? Curiosity can lead to many wonderful things and urges us to broaden our knowledge to penetrate to the core of things. Most of us will not become famous explorers or inventors, but f you make good use of this wonderful gift from God, you will lead a meaningful and joyous life.
Here are three ideas towards living a more curious life:
(Please comment below if you can add to the list!)
- Try to be responsible curious rather than judgmental or criticizing when new situations arise.
- Learn from, and admit your mistakes. Only then, good judgment will develop.
- Stop making assumptions about situations. Assumptions obstruct your view and will defeat you before you even begin.
"I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done"
Just be careful, keep this in mind while be responsible curious.
