Lets play spin the bottle..?

Generation after generation kids often take "chance" as a beautiful and wonderful thing to participate in, instead of the dreaded thing adults often see it as. Games like spin the bottle are great ways to think about taking chances again and not live so strict you forget you not alive. I remember playing spin the bottle when I was young and I rarely got what I wanted but, so did everyone else. It's like we were celebrating failure or maybe we were excepting the beauty of friendship and others? Tell me of a game of chance you played and what are you thinking right now? Talk to you guys later.

Confidence..good?

Too much confidence (overconfidence) can limit the ability to reflect our own mistakes. However, according to Harvard anthropologist Richard Wrangham "When two opposing combatants are assessing each other in a conflict, if one of them has an exaggerated sense of his own abilities he is more likely to emerge from the fight as the winner." Consider a time you have been in a conflict, did you become victorious because, of this tool? Is confidence more good than bad? Let me know! Thanks for reading stay tuned.

Clever Advertisement

How do you feel about advertising? More specifically indicated, "clever advertisement" has been an undoubtedly apart of our day to day happenings that we may or may not realize. How do you feel when these things do occur? The most obvious time to catch these for me is when I'm using my Google Nexus tablet surfing You Tube and just before every (almost) clip I choose there is a cleverly done advertisement about any number of subjects and, I have to watch at least 5 seconds of it, I absolutely don't like it. What do you think?

Advertisement vs Growth

A very integral part of going about business decisions on a grand scale almost always involves advertisement. Whether your Subway suggesting  your subs can fearlessly help the fight against obesity or your a small business owner with the absolute lowest prices around, advertisement is key to moving forward. My question is how incredibly different or the same advertisement is vs growth? Does that particular Super Bowl commercial strategy really amount to a growth? Is that growth healthy?

There always has to be a leader.

In life we all look for someone to admire, to lead us to greatness. Those who lead have a greater responsibility and power. However, beware of those you choose to follow because they can lead you astray. Whether the leader is someone in the media or someone unseen, why do you choose the person you choose to stand behind?

~243 Days in a year? Hmm..

If someone were to calculate the number of times a person lost 24hrs of the year to sleep, what would that calculate to as total "days of consciousness" for the year? I have to say with an average of 8hrs a night they'd be doing around 243 days of consciousness for the calendar year. Crazy... What is your average?
