Self Improvement


The Visualizing Technique

A lot of us were told to ignore what we feel and most of the time we do, but during times where we need to make big decisions whether it may be for our careers, family, or even for ourselves this visualization technique is extremly helpful.

  1. Set aside 20 minutes of quiet time to just breathe and give yourself a break.
  2. Visualize accepting offer A, how it feels a couple of months forward or a year in to that offer. How do you feel; and do the same for the other offer.
  3. Reflect upon your values; and
  4. Rank your values in order of importance.

Legend has it that Rome was founded by the twin brothers, Romulus and Remus, the sons of the god Mars.

The twins wanted to start a new city but couldn't agree on where to build it. This caused a fight where Romulus killed Remus. Romulus then named the new city 'Roma' after himself.

The fight or flight response

The fight or flight response is a powerful survival reaction. Once we perceive danger, adrenalin increases our heart rate and move our attention toward fighting off or fleeing from the threat.

We may become so focused on that goal that we may not process any extra details and may have no clear memory of how we got away from or fought off the danger.
