    Thank you for viewing my whiteboard Gerald. Don't be confused, you are not the only one. I do however value your remarks as they have become entangled with my intentions to do anything at all, as to overcome my writers block by making a start anywhere. Pfft, I am glad I got that out of the way. Thank you again for challenging me my friend: I have just completed my latest buzz. #9

    I did not select any specific hive, it will find it's way where it wants to go. I merely wanted to throw my card on the table so as to start engaging a little more than what I have done so far. Lately, I have been a little absent as you may know. That is another story all together. My circumstances have prevented me to be as sociable as I have wanted to be. Over the last few weeks I have finally found a place where I can operate from to my satisfaction. I will expand my views of either side of the line soon, and regard this entry as a more realistic"opening move" into the beBee Community than what I did in my first article a while ago. My new design is a different theme of a concept that I have used before. #7

    It is my way of depicting how to choose a path in the chaos of a complex world Gerald. We define our own moments of reality depending what filter we use at the time of observation. I appreciate your comment. We are often very quick to jump to conclusions. A picture is worth a thousand words. Thought in itself, creates conflict. Hence the question whether I AM neutral or not. I sincerely doubt if others are.#5

    Hmm. I might be somewhere in the middle. A little of both, maybe? I definitely like things to be as uncomplicated as possible and people who natter on endlessly without making a concise point get on my nerves. My spacial perception is terrible and too many details and steps confuse me. Having said that, I can be very resourceful, a great problem solver, independent thinker and very entrepreneurial. What's your opinion, @Graham Edwards 🐝? I think Graham learns in circles.
    Deb Helfrich
    30/11/2016 #14 Deb Helfrich
    #13 Interesting that you brought up maps, @Susan Rooks, as I used the words globe and continent-shaped. I think circular learning is more about learning things spatially, in relationship, via representation. And linear directions are certainly part of the ease of recalling some of the most ridiculous things.

    I have always had a great sense of direction, probably good since I traveled so much as a consultant, but I shun maps and the existence of GPS is outside my world right now. Even something like getting in an elevator and knowing which way to turn when I got to my floor. It floored me when colleagues would have to walk out and look in order to know which way to go.

    I think I learn in 3-D. Back to spatial learning. I also love to pace while talking.

    Finally, the newish work on embodied cognition is very self-evident to me, I think precisely because I don't learn in a straight line.
    Susan Rooks
    30/11/2016 #13 Susan Rooks
    Well, @Elizabeth Bailey, you've given us quite a question! Thank you!

    I am pretty sure I think in circles; until the last few years no one would have ever called me organized. Straight lines were not for me! And although yes, I'm more organized . . . I am sure others might walk into my small place and wince. The one time straight line thinking works for me is with maps, especially trying to get to a place I've never been before. I don't much like getting anywhere late, so I like to go simply from here to there with a minimum of fuss.

    Otherwise, I'm fine with being spontaneous and wandering around -- in my thinking and in my doing.

    #8 I'm glad you enjoyed it @Donna-Luisa Eversley I think, like your teachers, it took me a while to understand it was just a difference in people. Most likely if circle / image learning was mainstream those of us who learn by words and straight lines would be the ones finding it tough.

    @Elizabeth Bailey...I learn in circles, and growing up it was hard as my teachers tried to get me on the straight line. I'm also a picture learner and images are easier than words. I can do the lines and words now, but it took me a long time to accept my differences were great and did not make me less of a person.
    Thanks for this.

    Interesting @Elizabeth Bailey. I think I'm a mix of both. I'm scattered at times, spontaneous and I can usually learn from fragments of my past if it's something that just makes sense. On the other hand, I need facts, I'm a hands on learner first and foremost. However, there are certain things that I need step by step instruction. I guess it just depends on the circumstance I'm facing.

    Deb Helfrich
    30/11/2016 #4 Deb Helfrich
    Very circular learner right here, @Elizabeth Bailey. Although I represent it a bit more like what I know right now is the 'globe', if I sit in a class, I wait to hear the entire lecture, get the entire scope of the new information, and then I integrate the whole of the new info into my world. I simply do not understand asking questions during the process.

    Once something is integrated, I have a map to retrieve it. Maybe it could be said I learn in continent shaped chunks, rather than train tracks. I do very much agree with your statement "they seem to be able to remember all these odd unrelated pieces of information and when they've got enough of them just put them together with an amazing grasp of the subject"

    They may strictly speaking be unrelated bits of info, but I learn the relationships, rather than the facts, and that leads to a quicker emergence of a 'concept.'

    Thanks for such an interesting and thought-provoking post, Liz. I think the best outcome is to possess some combination of thinking in straight lines AND circles. I don't think this has to be an either/or choice, although I'm sure most people excel at one over the other. If not, then at least know what you excel at, in addition to your limitations. Then, as you suggest, seek out assistance and guidance as needed.

    Back in the day, I must have learned in straight lines because I am a very organized person. However, life experiences have made me more of an "out of the box" thinker. This probably was a result of my career, moving and traveling, etc. Now I believe I am a combination. I like some chaos as it presents more of a challenge. I tend to perform better when there is a challenge.

    Undoubtedly, Kev, as mature leaders in our chosen career path or discipline, we have a duty to ensure that "passion will drive us towards doing something in the service of something larger than ourselves". But let's spare a thought for the many less fortunate out there who, for various reasons, are trapped in survival mode from day to day, and are slowly being robbed of their passion. How can we recognise them and include them in our "service of something larger"?

    "Here’s what Pillemer calls the “refrigerator list” of the five lessons gleaned from all that experience:

    1. Choose a career for the intrinsic rewards, not the financial ones.
    2. Don’t give up on looking for a job that makes you happy.
    3. Make the most of a bad job.
    4. Emotional intelligence trumps every other kind.
    5. Everyone needs autonomy." Close

    I had heard or read the amount of money most people need to feel happy at work caps out at $70-80,000. Then I saw this video and learned more about the research that makes so much sense.
    I've also heard of studies that show more than 75% of people are unhappy at work. Why?

    Dan Pink "demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges."

    You asked after working hard to be successful, "How will you know you've arrived?"
    Today, people need to use their passions and be fullfilled. Otherwise, they are "unhappy" - without really explaining why - but consider themselves part of the 75%. Close

    Kevin Pashuk.I always like such light posts which feature the real meaning of success.Although each one of those titans was driven by different motives,all were able to go against the logic of many others and their unprecedented success took place in the framework of their high expectations about their business.
    They have achieved spectacular success not because of their core skills or experience or qualification ,but because they have the passion ,the will and the motivation to keep going and not to regress to mediocrity or spectacular failure.I wonder whether those people have applied their own creativity or have been inspired by Aristotle when he quoted-success is a state concerned with choice,laying in a mean and being determined by reason and practical wisdom.

    This is such an important reframe, @Nir Eyal, and you have phrased it so well.

    "Feelings are our bodies’ way of conveying information our conscious minds might miss. When a lack of mental energy is chronic, we should listen to our willpower just as we should listen to our emotions."

    "Most studies to date have looked at willpower as a force that helps people do things they don’t want to do, or that helps them resist temptations they’d rather give in to. But if we adjust the perspective and treat willpower as an emotion, it could instead be seen as providing insights about what we should and shouldn’t be spending our time on."

    Negative emotions are natural reactions that we need to cope with. Recognizing the cause of negative emotions can lead the way to deal with them appropriately. Ignoring them can eventually cause a downward spiral and even result in harm to others and ourselves.

    #107 I agree with you dear @Mohammed Sultan. Your comment is consistent with the quantum theory "When we consistently make certain assumptions about the bad things that may happen to us we trigger our negative emotions". When we focus only on negatives we develop the Observer Effect. Negative emotions help to stabilize positive emotions, but excessively reflecting on negative ones throw us out of balance.

    Dear @ Ali Anani PhD.Thanks for sharing the output of your balanced emotion.When we consistently make certain assumptions about the bad things that may happen to us we trigger our negative emotions.Everything depends on how we view our external world.People with unbalanced emotion explain the bad things that happen to them in terms that are internal and stable.Thinking all the time of what went wrong is the moving sands of our emotions.It leads to giving up and prevent us from seizing opportunities because we think of punishment of failure(negative emotion) rather than the rewards for success(positive emotion).Fit and balance of our internal emotions should be done first before we align them with reason or with the external world.It also make sense to delay our decisions or meetings when we temporarily are flooded with negative emotion and become unable to balance them with reason.

    #102 @Lisa Gallagher- emotions and thoughts lead to actions. For every action there is an equal reaction in the opposite direction. That is why I find your comment so deep and informative, and especially this part of the comment "The more we put out to the universe, negative or positive, well it comes back to us". You do amaze me with how simply and clearly you express complex ideas.
    Lisa Gallagher
    20/11/2016 #102 Lisa Gallagher
    It's amazing how negative emotions can over take the postive emotions @Ali Anani. I think you described some of the mystery behind them well. We can co-exist as long as our common core is one that comes from a good place. I think we aren't able to co-exist if one person is positive (for the most part) and the other is inherently evil. I've always believed that positive attracts positive and vice versa. The more we put out to the universe, negative or positive, well it comes back to us. Everyone has negative emotions and that's not a bad thing. It's when we allow those emotions to dictate our lives and treat others unjustly because we feel so bitter inside.

    #95 @David Navarro López I really dug the piece and thank you for sharing it. Bruce Lee said something to the effect to take what resonates and make it uniquely your own. That's what triggered in my mind as I read the part about Copy.

    It's all been done before however there is always a way to express it that is unique to one's perspective and how one applies it to ones life

    I like the metal forging metaphor as well as I use a simple philosophy of the sword has no master to illustrate that each is a living sword and the hilt is the mind and letting others have control over what and how you think allows them to weld you against whoever the choose.

    Something ingrained in me by my Hungarian family and many family debates that looked like war was about to break out. I was taught if I couldn't put it in my own words I was not allowed to participate because until you can put it in your own words you have yet to live concept to find if it is wise for your life. .

    It's never easy to look at oneself and ones past and see where one inflicted harm and own it and forgive oneself by changing ones behavior so they don't repeat the inflicting of suffering as a matter of habit as they keep on keepin on.

    Max J. Carter
    19/11/2016 #92 Max J. Carter
    Why do we fear getting rid of the terms positive and negative when describing human emotion?

    Let me see I can answer this.

    We fear letting go of these abusive descriptors so we can avoid actually having to deal with the cause of the emotional response and own responsibility for actions that led to the emotion displayed.

    We cling to these terms to avoid dealing with each other and taking responsibility for our actions and words by saying "They are being negative and I did nothing or said nothing to illicit that response, it's their choice. and they are being negative."

    This is self delusional avoidance and why these terms are abusive to self and all ones.

    This is behavioral psychology applied with out allowing personal identity in the form of the ego expression to distort the view.

    To let go these ideas means a redefinition of self and the ego expression. People fear changing themselves because then maybe they might have to take responsibility for things they have done in the past and acknowledge the suffering they have inflicts and generally people like to avoid that as they see it as a negative experience and this increases their resistance to change.

    Outstanding progress, @Gary Sharpe !

    I try to keep my comments and my excitement in check as I have seen you break through (or work around) one challenge after another. Sometimes your leaps forward cause me to forget the big picture.

    I realize, as you do, that you can't expect every day to be a breakthrough, yet every day you keep hope alive that you will at least maintain most of your progress to date, and--when the time is right--make another step (or leap) forward.

    I celebrate your struggle as much as I do your progress. You have given us all a lesson in focus, a lesson in being open to possibilities, a lesson in letting go of anger and pain, and a lesson in courage, friend.

    Happy re-wiring!

    Well delivered @Aurorasa Sima!! You brought up many great points. I have to wonder if people don't work on or practice change earlier in life, well is it that much harder to stay stuck in your ways, or a situation you don't like because the fear of change is over whelming? I made many changes without worrying first in life. I had the confidence that the choices I made would work out as they should or even better than I could imagine. I also stayed realistic knowing that change can rock the boat too. I never want to be that person who stays stuck in their ways... no matter what obstacles I face.

    #45 Yes, limiting beliefs, low feeling of self-worth, fear of success/failure - it all comes down to fears. And a lack of self-love.

    As you say, progress is only possible in a dynamic environment.

    Initial resistance to change the status quo can be a survival instinct of the brain so that we should not be too hard on us and just continue with baby steps.

    Is it because of fear people become scary to adopt changes or stay behind thinking that any changes may bring in hurdles? But, change in itself is a dynamic process and rejuvenating rule of life. Without plausible changes, everything will begin stinking, and in static ways there can be no progress.

    Whoever you are, where-ever you are:

    Never, ever believe that you CAN'T make the Change.

    Never, ever believe that you CAN'T make the Difference.

    Don't let them tell you there is no hope. Don't let them tell you the dream is over. Let's dream again. Dream on.

    Don't let them tell your life is a downwards spiral from now on. Don't let them take the rest of your life. Let's stop dying inside. Live again and live on.

    If you want something to live for, a dream of achievement to focus on, something to work towards, then here is an undeniable truth. The human brain and body are capable of incredible self-healing and the power of human will pushes every boundary of what's possible every single day. With a positive mind and empowering knowledge, anything can happen.

    #15 I like your take on empathy @David Navarro López. "Being empathic is a must and the first step to build sane social relationships." Well said and so true!

    Some might think that being empathic is an option. In my opinion, we can not forget that as human beings, we belong to a society, and thus it is not "me", it is "us". The individual is not going to achieve anything that would potentially much better be achieved in community. Anytime we go for egocentric options, the results are worse for the community, and ultimately, it reverts in worse for us as individuals. So being empathic is a must, and the first step to built sane social relationships.

    #3 @Savvy Raj, your right, dancing does stay in your blood for a lifetime. I have a few YouTube dance exercise videos I use for fun and exercise. I forget im exercising if the music moves my soul. Agree, maybe empathy should be a yearly requirement as part of the curriculum, even using things like role playing or reversals!

    Empathy is the service of love that stands the test of time.The love that makes undaunted the final sacrifice .Empathy is the love that asks no questions, in which you give more and expect less.When our hearts are filled with joy ,everything start to move,sing and dance.Empathy is an easy and an ideal principle but difficult for some to practice.@ Savvy Raj, today's business practice is like walking a tight rope to keep balance companies must learn how to dance.

    @Savvy Raj - Such an interesting buzz. This brings up for me the damage we clearly do when we stop children from moving as they naturally should and stick them into seats and discipline them for moving. We cut off a major way they learn to handle their emotions and then we instill learning solely in the mind, when an engaged body is ripe for learning.

    Are we reducing empathy in our societies when we regiment kids? They focus solely on a teacher for large segments of the day, required to sit still, rather than interacting among themselves. And then we expect, after years of face forward education for young adults to arrive in the business world and participate in collective meetings.....

    We need to build so much more movement into our lives!

    We could all use a little more empathy. This reminds me of attending Sufi dance (Dances of Univeral Peace) classes back on the islands.

    #5 Deeply appreciate your thoughts @Irene Hackett . Yes indeed Social dancing and its applications have been a subject of deep interest .... when the pressures of performances to impress ,move beyond to explore the simple art of dance to express the perspectives shifts in scopes of dance outreach as there is truly so much more beyond the patterns of movement.

    Un artículo muy acertado. Exactamente lo mismo les digo a mis alumnos de clases particulares de yoga y clientes de coaching.

    Justo ahora trabajo con un alumno que tiene muchos problemas de salud y re-descubrir conscientemente sensaciones corporales, acogerlas y dejarlas marchar es toda una revelación para esta persona y un gran alivio.

    La propuesta metológica es simple y efucaz: sentir, soltar, sonreir.

    Prueba a ponerlo en práctica, te quedarás gratamente sorprendido.

    Un gran abrazo.
