The Key Understandings To Return To Center From:
Liar To Lover, Victim To Victor

The world appears to be becoming more and more polarized.

Polarization is a sharp division between two contrasting groups or set of opinions or beliefs.

  • Black or White
  • Friend or Enemy
  • Good or Evil
  • Heart or Head
  • Extrovert or Introvert

In terms of physics, polarization restricts the vibration of light, love, heart, and communion.

As an extroverted ambivert, it has been my life’s work to understand polarization.

An ambivert is a person whose personality has a balance of both extroverted and introverted features.

4 Steps To Prevent Decision Fatigue

There are 5 quintillion bytes of information created every single day and 90% of all the information in the world has been created in the last two years. The vast majority of us are suffering from a lack of balance brought on by decision fatigue.

In decision making and psychology, decision fatigue refers to the deteriorating quality of decisions made by an individual after a long session of decision making. It is now understood as one of the causes of irrational trade-offs in decision making.

You start your day with your goals in mind that includes decision – action – decision – action – decision. While all this is going on, your mind’s RAM memory is getting filled up with more and more information.

Simon’s Confessions Of A Tired Mind

Most of us have been watching the Kavanaugh confirmation.

Most Canadians have been keeping an eye on the NAFTA / USMCA negotiations.

Laura and I were having lunch in the Chicago airport when the verdict on the Jason Van Dyke trial was broadcast across the monitors.

I was watching my tired mind’s curiosity about both the Kavanaugh confirmation and the Jason Van Dyke trial.

My tired mind:

  • Just finishing a 3 day FPA Conference in Chicago
  • In advance of a Chicago to Vancouver flight home
  • Being away 19 of the last 24 days

Just like the Kavanaugh confirmation, I was watching my tired mind’s curiosity switch to who may be right or wrong in the Jason Van Dyke trial.

Why is my mind so occupied with who may be right or wrong? And why is my mind occupied with so much Information, Media, and News?

At a deep level, my overtired, over-occupied mind, consumed by too much Information, Media, and News, believes that it is being judged and condemned.

The mind’s medication to alleviate its own self-inflicted pain from feeling judged and condemned is to watch Information, Media, and News about others who are being judged and condemned.

Instead of outside medication to alleviate the feeling of being judged and condemned, turn inside to breathing and meditation to dissolve the false belief of being judged and condemned.

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service,
