Antimimeticisomorphism – Falling Dominoes

This is only 15,000 dominoes, but it still is MESMERISING!

What is antimimeticisomorphic about this is that INSTEAD of trying to break a WORLD RECORD, she decided to make it INTERESTING. It only took her 25 hours to get a BETTER outcome that a world record (7+ million YouTube views). If that’s not a classic case of antimimeticisomorphism, I don’t know what is!

5 Minutes that will make your day

We all know the expression “Life’s too short to be too serious”… Today’s video clip gives you an excuse to watch a dog having the time of his/her life, giving us the thrill to see what a master “showdog” can do – truly amazing!

If you’re wondering what this has to do with Personal Mastery, think about it… If you can’t take 5 minutes to enjoy a video like this, what’s the point of whatever you’re doing. No one on their deathbed was ever heard saying “I wish I would have spent more time working…”

The common reflection is “I wish I would have taken the time to enjoy my “moments” more… To fully live them “in the moment”.

Take 5 minutes and live the joy and exuberance of one dog doing what he/she loves to do… Catch those frisbees!

Antimimeticisomorphism: Rainwater Cup Mosaic

To raise awareness among the general public about the global clean water crisis, the artist Belo created an image composed of 66,000 cups of colored rainwater simulating levels of impurities found in water all over the planet. This major work of 3,600 square feet, representing a fetus in the maternal womb, emphasizes the necessity of water, even before birth, for each living person. The goals of 66,000 were many: taking up the artistic and material challenges inherent to this monumental production, and informing the public of the dramatic consequences of a lack of drinkable water.

Thank you to Andrew Powell for forwarding this on to me.

Creating A New Habit

As a reader or subscriber to this blog, you know I am an avid proponent of New Year’s Resolutions. One of the challenges you will face is creating NEW HABITS to support your NEW RESOLUTIONS.

This presentation, by Matt Cutts is an outstanding example of how one simple idea/concept can make ALL the difference between success (creating a new habit) and failure (getting stuck with the old habit).

If you manage to do this – please commit to sharing your success below…

The power of exponential thinking

Exponential thinking is powerful, but not ‘natural’ or easy for the novice to grasp. It is at the core of leverage, how successful people are able to achieve more by doing less. Even though it is largely conceptual for personal development purposes, exponential is very real and very effective.

The example below is an example of how elegantly powerful exponential thinking is…

Did you know that if you could fold a piece of typical paper 42 times you would have a tower that would stretch to the moon?

Ahh you say, but it’s impossible to fold a piece of paper more than eight times. Turns out, like so many unreferenced claims, that isn’t true. The record is in fact 12.

Still that twelve-fold piece of paper isn’t even table height – it’s hard to imagine getting from table height to the Moon in 30 more folds. That’s because our brains are inclined to think linearly, not exponentially.

Imagine what would happen if you adopted Exponential Mindset Thinking?!?!

Thank you to the Graffiti Eaters, Australia’s premier graffiti and stain removal specialists today’s submission!
