Freedom Today and the Constitution

The The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States are what? Words on a paper shared with belief that they were good for a nation. Carefully chosen words. Words that express principles of a divine nature. A group of our forebears agreed that it would be the basis of our government. It was no small achievement. It would tell elected government what they could or couldn't do. Following it is a matter of integrity. It is a commitment to the principles in the Declaration of Independence and allowing individuals to be free.

We have layers or branches in the government so that when one does not follow it the others might challenge them. If they don't challenge behavior that is contrary to the ideals and provisions it contains then it behooves "we the people to act", to come together and vote. These are the bullets of freedom today.  While corruption has been setting in almost from the beginning, the constitution has proven to be better than any o…

10 Skills For Success at Almost Anything

10 Skills You Need to Succeed at Almost Anything By Dustin Wax  Post from Life Hack
What does it take to succeed? A positive attitude? Well, sure, but that’s hardly enough. The Law of Attraction? The Secret? These ideas might act as spurs to action, but without the action itself, they don’t do much. Success, however it’s defined, takes action, and taking good and appropriate action takes skills. Some of these skills (not enough, though) are taught in school (not well enough, either), others are taught on the job, and still others we learn from general life experience. Below is a list of general skills that will help anyone get ahead in practically any field, from running a company to running a gardening club. Of course, there are skills specific to each field as well – but my concern here is with the skills that translate across disciplines, the ones that can be learned by anyone in any position.
1. Public Speaking The ability to speak clearly, persuasively, and forcefully in front of a…

Ultimate Productivity

Ultimate Productivity  (From Life Hacks)
by  IVAN DIMITRIJEVIC
We all work all day, and during all this chaos we have almost no free time for ourselves, and our families, but we always try to make some room. We all want to be extra-productive, and we try to multitask as much as we can, but sometimes, the more we try to do more things at once, we find ourselves failing almost everything, as we are unable to dedicate our full intention to a singular task. Organizational skills are extra important, and time management has never been more important—especially if you want to stay successful.
Due to all this, we all try to find more hacks and discover newer tips that will allow us to stay on top of your game. In an effort to organize all menial tasks, we use special techniques and tools simply not to waste time. The best advice that anyone can give you is to work smarter, not harder, and remember, time management isn’t about stuffing as many tasks as you can into any given day, but it is abou…

Life Cycles-The Breakaway

Life Cycles-The Breakaway
It is fun to ride a bike, but anyone who has watched a cycling event on TV knows that it can drag for a long time. 
It consists of many helicopter shots of beautiful scenery, a big pack of cyclists and some English guy talking nonstop as he tries to make it exciting. 
There is something though that makes a bicycle race exciting, it is called the breakaway.  These are the risk takers, the guys that feel extra perky on any given day. 
These are the guys that say I can ride faster and longer than all the other top professional cyclists in the world for 4 to 5 hours usually over a course of at least 100 miles. 
They may lead the race until only a few miles are left and yet most of the time these guys get sucked back into the pack and no one knows what happens to them.   
On occasion however their risk pays off and they win the race.  
I compare these guys to the entrepreneurs in life.   Statisticians say that eight out of 10 small businesses fail on the first 18…
