Time to get real


If robotics is to succeed like computing, what matters is making practical robots that do jobs well and affordably …

… taken from a New Scientist article

The Fukushima Daiichi power plant incident in Japan in 2011 has changed the view Japan has about robots. Everyone knows about the advanced robotics skills Japanese scientists have developed in the last 30 years. We can see them in singing, running and dancing humanoid robots. But in 2011 Japan has seen the usage of robots to deal with the nuclear emergency. The military already uses robots to defuse improvised explosive devices.

How often do you waste your time by getting ready, having the perfect business card or cleaning up your desk so your phone is well positioned on it?

Does that sound familiar?

Get real .. all that doesn’t make you move forward in your business nor in your life. Yes, a clean desk gives you a clean mind, but just don’t use it as an excuse for not making phone calls or writing that particular important report. Be practical and useful, be out there and share with the world what you have to offer.

Time to get real! What are the demons you are facing? What’s preventing you to show the world what you have to offer?

It’s time to eat

What is your healthy eating rhythm?
Let your body tell you when to eat!

… says who or what?

It’s time … people check the time and notice that it is already past 12pm. For some reason, that means food time for most of us.Why?

When we are born we tell our mums when we are hungry, because we can’t read the watch yet? Our tiny body tells us in different ways that we need to eat. The same works in the adult state, believe it or not. Symptoms are rumbling stomach or dizziness. As an adult you normally have enough energy in you, so you can survive around 2-3 days without food.

Having a time set for food input, makes a human more suitable for the system. Then we can define working hours precisely down to the minute and the system tells you when to eat.

Have you ever actually forgotten to eat? I did. We see teens and adults, spending hours in front of the computer playing games. You can easily go 24hours without food. And we actually forget time. Don’t you remember as a kid you were playing and having fun and suddenly your mum is calling you in for dinner or lunch? How interrupting is that .. you are just having fun. And you are not hungry anyway. We can’t blame our parents, they want the best for us.

A healthy eating rhythm is given by Mother Nature. The demand of energy is different every day and there are plenty of other things influencing your mood, energy and attitude. We live now in a society where food is available 24/7. Why not grabbing some nuts when you feel you need a snack? Yes, our days are busy and scheduled down to the minute. Just be aware of what you eat when. Are you really hungry? If not … have just a snack. But in general keeps the portions small.
