cross-posted from raincoaster if anyone happens to need typing practice, I could sure use a transcript… This is the so-called lecture, in actuality dialogue, that I gave at Moosecamp, which is the first, more free-form day, of the Northern Voice Blogging Conference. It was my intention to get people talking about the simple right to […]

workaholic? moi?

Who’s a workaholic? It certainly wouldn’t be me, nor you…would it? Ha! Remember the Eighties, where you were supposed to be a proud workaholic, in your little blue suit and tie? That was back before we got lives. Or brains, I think. Now it’s more fashionable to have a balanced life, and thank god for […]

We’ve covered resting heart rates, and you already know that when you work out, your heart rate increases. And you also know that when your heart rate increases too much, you need to slow it down. But what you may not know is, just exactly how hard your heart should be working in order for […]

are you a fattist?

This, my friends, is the most fascinating site on the entire Interwebs; at least, it is if you’re as self-centred as I am! It is a site from Harvard absolutely bursting with psych test goodness. These tests, all built along more or less similar lines, are cleverly designed to suss out the prejudices you never […]

Boy, there’s nothing so exciting as taking out a watch and a calculator and settling down to do some math, eh? Hoo boy, I’ll bet you’re excited! Well who wouldn’t be? But there’s a reason I’m making you do your homework (don’t look away from the monitor…I can see you, ya know! I have the […]

maslow’s hierarchy of needs: a benchmark

Found via a loopy stagger around and off¬†sulz‘s blog. Cross-posted¬†from raincoaster. As always with our Benchmarks, we suggest that you copy the results of your test and post them in your blog for self-knowledge and future comparison. We’re all evolving, and it’s a huge boost to recognize just how far you may have come since […]

Online tests are no replacement for a consultation with a good specialist, but they can act as benchmarks so we can go back and take the test at a later point and compare the two results. They can also shock you into making an appointment with a specialist in the first place, if that’s appropriate […]

the self challenge

Some time back I referred to this Challenge, and it’s high time I elaborated on my remarks there. The Self Challenge, run by Self magazine, is a three-month program designed for fitness beginners or those coming back from a significant layoff and who want to improve their physical condition. It’s covered in the magazine extensively, […]

quiz: how ready for change are you?

April 30, 2007

12

Not the world’s most scientific test, but still worth a shot. If nothing else, it’s blog fodder! To post the results in your own blog, take the test and copy the HTML the form gives you, then paste it in the HTML or Code editor. Sometimes the picture moves to the left after you post […]

Read the last post. Does this remind you of you? It’s critical to define the changes we want to make in our lives and in ourselves before embarking on the journey of change. The goals may indeed shift while we’re working towards them and become more self-aware, but without a direction to move, we can […]
