Sinds eergisteren ben ik samen met mijn vriendinnetje een experimentje aan het doen. We hebben namelijk afgesproken om tot en met 26 oktober geen televisie te kijken. Niet dat we zoveel televisie keken. Gemiddeld 1 - 1,5 uur per dag, denk ik. Maar...

The story Jack Canfield, the founder and co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series, tells us why we should plan our day the night before: Because if you plan your day the night before then during your sleep your unconscious and subconscious mind will start working on creative ideas to make your plan happen. Why this story inspired me A great tip that I'm certainly going to put into practice. It also connects with John Cleese's story: creating boundaries of space and time to get into the creativity flow. Well, just think of the time that you sleep as the perfect example of a boundary in space and time. It's 8 hours that you will not be disturbed. Perfect! I just didn't look at sleep this way before. What I hope sharing this story will lead to I hope that people will start to experiment with planning a day ahead, just like I am going to do. Should this work then sleep is a huge opportunity to make the best of the following day and of life.

How To Fight

An off-topic video, I know. But I found it so funny that I just had to share it.
Not exactly 101 ways... But I enjoyed the part after the examples.
A lot of people think you need talent to excel at something. According to this video talent is 10.000 hours of work and some luck. So basically what you need is luck. Mmmm.... Don't know if that motivates me to work hard (for 10.000 hours). (thanks to Piet!)
