Hackschooling to be happy

*It has been long time without publishing, but this time is worth it.*

John Lennon already said that. He wanted to be happy when he grew up.

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

See what happens when a Child states to hack school and go for what Mr. Ken Robinson explains at his TED video “School Kills Creativity”

LEFT VS RIGHT BRAIN

Some days ago I purposed to watch a list of TED videos. For those who don’t know TED, it is just a non profit organization spreading amazing ideas from really interesting people.

…I found out the one below. Despite it was posted in August 21, 2012 I thought I would be worth watching all the videos. …And I’m on it!

http://blog.ted.com/2012/08/21/the-20-most-watched-ted-talks-to-date/

Since I had already seen the first TEd talk, I played directly the second talk of the list, from Jill Bolte. The video tells an astonishing story: The speaker shares personal story of a stroke recovery. She had a massive stroke, watched as her brain functions shut down one after the other. And she recovered.

Beyond the inside out passionate story, Mrs Jill Bolte awoke me the will to dig in how our brain works…. And this is what I came up with, searching the web. See the infographics velow!

Attention! There is lots of controversy: some say we can’t just split up the brain in two parts, others say the opposite… The truth is, that the human’s brain is brilliant.

GUARDIOLA, QUIN CARISMA!

Demà hi ha clàssic. De copa. Barça i Madrid s’enfronten de nou.

Mourinho, com sempre, guanya les seves batalles a les rodes de premsa. Ha ironitzat, un cop més sobre els valors del Barça. Quina llàstima que hagi de tirar de beta, que no tingui res a dir dels seus i hagi de parlar del Barça.

Que recordi que Pep Guardiola ja li va dir el què fa dues temporades. Ell és el puto amo de les rodes de premsa, però resulta que en l’esport, s’ha de ser el puto amo al terreny de joc!!!

I per cert, quin carisma en Guardiola. Quin referent…

Visca el Barça i Visca Catalunya!!

Clarity precedes mastery. Clarity is power.

Focus on your vision to have clarity to get things done.

One page plan keeps things simple.

Write your magnificient obsession in one paragraph.

write out your top 3 values: will give you energy and inspiration.

…And the BIG FIVE for this new year!!

no 2. THE HOLY HOUR

DREAM BIG, START SMALL, ACT NOW.

Make it a daily ritual: Exercise.

Give yourself 60 minutes to prepare for the day.

The person who sweats more in training, BLEEDS LESS IN WAR!!

Every morning, 20 minutes of exercise.Gives you FOCUS! Makes you feel good, feel inspired!

LEARN, INVEST IN LEARNING

ONE IDEA EXECUTED FLAWLESSLY COULD CHANGE THE GAME FOR YOU

JOURNAL.

20′ EXERCISE

20′ LEARNING

20′ JOURNALING

 

no 3. THE MORE YOU GO TO THE EDGE OF YOUR LIMITS, THE MORE YOUR LIMITS WILL EXPAND

If youre not scared, you’re not growing.

Go to the edge of your limits, of your capability

That means growing

Your previous limits, will be your new normal!!

Give yourself a second wind workout

when you transform your fitness, you transform your business.

 

no 4 GAME CHANGER – the weekly design system

You have got to become a master of scheduling and time management

The things that get scheduled, are the things that get done (brain tatoo)

Every sunday, plan the week ahead.

Celebrate your victories, write a story of the week in your journal, rate your week

Create a summary of what the week was like!!

set weekly goals

FOCUS IS MORE VALUABLE THAN INTELLIGENCE

build your days around your goals and priorities
