Small Changes, Every Day - Real Change Is Only Days Away

The end of every year is a natural time to reflect on what's gone and to ponder what's coming. In reflection, there are things we can accept. In pondering, there are things we want to change.

I'm working on three things I want to do less, and three things I want to be more.

It has occurred to me recently that the signs are good I'm ready for change. I've made small changes that I didn't even decide to make consciously. The thought entered my mind - that would be good - and I practiced it twice or three times, and the habit's already in the shape of the making.

If we seek to change anything, our habits spring to the forefront.

Change is about habit challenge and conquest. We cannot change if we don't challenge our habits, and changing our habits necessitates a conquest. Change doesn't occur unless we're relentless.

Relentlessness is nothing if not a building force of enquiry and action in the direction of our goals. Small changes…

Disruptive 3D Technology Considered

The other day our think tank was discussing the challenges of 3-D printing and how "Capitalism will begin to suffer damage when 3D printing starts to affect the retail distribution chain." Consider if you will that in the future people will be 3D printing at home using carbon composite layering graphene, metallic materials, plastics, ceramic materials, etc. - people don't need to go to a retail store to buy cheap products, they can merely print them in their living room. What about the jobs at the major retailers, what about the management in retail, the buyers, truck drivers, warehouse staff? All those jobs gone?

When does this happen - as 3D printing technology matures. How fast will that happen - as fast as it takes for people to print out the new evolutions of their 3D printers at home. In other words, the technology will outpace the ability of the markets to react. Capitalism is very good at eliminating losers. The problem is that retail will be a …

3 Signs You've Got A Chronic Sinus Infection And Don't Even Know It

As the weather changes, our bodies feel as though we are being pulled in different directions. A continuous stuffy nose runs amuck, and even though we tend to attribute this to bad allergies, it turns out that we are actually talking about chronic sinus infections. Pain in your sinuses is quite high, you're dragging, and we've made these symptoms a part of just another bad allergy season.

This highlights one major point --- most people can't tell the difference between bad allergies and a severe sinus infection. Though that is alarming enough, very few will touch base with their doctor & simply taking OTC medication to alleviate their symptoms rather than find out what is really causing a problem.

For starters, inflammation is found in the nasal areas of your face. The inflammation causes some rather large amounts of mucus to fill up nasal cavities, which causes some serious pressure. This, in turn, causes the complaints of headaches and pain in the …
