Flying with migrating birds

Tears welled up in my eyes when I saw this. Christian Moullec has been flying with migratory birds for more than 20 years. He raises the birds on his farm and teaches them how to migrate. You can tag along if you want. The money will be used to support the conservation efforts.

I'm going to the Sun

This morning the Parker Solar Probe was launched to the Sun to research the Sun’s atmosphere. Earlier this year people were given the opportunity to register their name to be sent on the spacecraft. Guess who registered?


I was not alone though, more than one million people registered too.

Be yourself

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to be yourself.

I must not fear

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Hyper scheduling update

Last week I mentioned starting with hyper scheduling. I must say, the first day was a great success. I really could mark a number of tasks as complete at the end of the day, and it felt good! The day after I was not that successful however. My scheduling efforts went totally down the drain. The rest of the week was kind of a mix between good days and bad days (although the bad days were successful in other ways, just not in the scheduling sense).

I’m convinced hyper scheduling does work, it will however work better on certain days than on others. I need to learn to discern what the signs are before taking the effort to make a schedule as to not waste the time (although the time invested can be somewhat deducted the next day).

I’m going to keep on hyper scheduling!
