Self Improvement


Many martial arts fakers teach unrealistic and often foolish techniques. For example, it's good to learn how to knee an assailant in the groin, but it becomes instantly dangerous if they claim that these techniques can equip you with the skill to overcome multiple attackers.

You should be aware in what discipline your instructor trained. You want to take a self-defence course at a martial arts school that offers instruction in a specific discipline.

Self Improvement


Arthur C Clarke arguably did more than any other author since HG Wells and Jules Verne to catapult his mind into the future, taking a vast global readership along with him for the invariably wild ride. 

As a science writer, he conjured up the idea of a ‘personal transceiver’ small enough to be carried about, enabling contact with anyone in the world and also featuring global positioning, making getting lost a thing of the past.

The foundation legends of Rome
  • One legend is that Ancient Rome was founded on 21 April 753 BCE by two brothers and demigods, Romulus and Remus. But Romulus killed Remus in an argument of who should rule and then named the city after himself.
  • Another legend is that the city was named after Roma, a woman. The fall of Troy caused the survivors to move on. When they landed on the banks of the Tiber River, Roma and other women objected to moving on.
  • Others think the city came from Rumon, the name for the Tiber River.
The 3-Zone Diagram
  • The Comfort Zone - this is where you do things where you feel 100% confident in yourself.
  • The Growth Zone - you will be challenged in this area, attain new skills, or use the current skills you have in new contexts. It's easier to face the risk of failure in this zone especially if you have a strong support system.
  • The Panic Zone - in this zone your body's fight or flight response becomes triggered and this zone may cause chronic stress, paralysis, and burnout.

The Big 5 model group characteristics into five basic categories. Extraversion, conscientiousness, agreeableness, neuroticism and openness to experience.

  • It doesn't sort anybody into a "type," just informs where a person will fall on a continuum.
  • You won't uncover anything surprising about yourself.
  • At best, you could use it as a comparative tool to tell you how your rank on extroversion compared with others who have taken the test.
