<<< Lemons are important to include in the diet.  When we eat lemons, our chemistry improves (that's what I've heard).   I eat for nutrition, not pleasure.  
Dark chocolate
As little sugar as possible.  See the New York Times article about Fat, Salt and Sugar.
Fish oil.  Avocados and Broccoli.

I carefully monitor what I look at.  
I protect my ears from loud noises (like rock music) and I don't invite or passively allow many negative topics to enter my head.  (I try not to watch Joan Rivers or videos that make fun of people or that seek to cause unnecessary tension.)
I am in a movie.  I live an extraordinary life filled with extraordinary days.   You can, too.  It starts by deciding that "I don't want to spend two hours watching someone else's movie.  I'm in my own movie.  I want to write the script.  I want to use my time to create."   This is how I spend my time, building the following:
A Personal Learning Plan (it helps to have KNOWYOURTYPE and this quiz)
A digital Portfolio of my work   see the DPs from High Tech High     Learn to make a free website
a resume showing a list of my skills

I am a Test Prep teacher at Broward College (Continuing Education Department):  I teach the 12 Global Skills through the ARTS focus (and my students think like mathematicians and musicians)

I embrace the "musician's approach to academics":  practice, practice, practice until we achieve mastery.

"People think focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on. But that's not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I'm actually as proud of the things we haven't done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things." (Apple Worldwide Developers' Conference, 1997)

as an SAT test prep teacher, i like engaging the help of parents, so here are some hints

You can save $500 (a typical fee for an SAT test prep course) by quietly asking your kid to look at 50 words a week for two years.   You'll go through the 5000 words and it's exposure that really makes the difference.

I mentioned Dan Pink:  "Motivation 3.0" is a way of giving advice and sharing

Dan Pink talks about the new economy.

This is the most important moment for me... starting at 1 minute 21 seconds

Why many productive people get up early

Not one person is expecting anything from you in the next 4 hours. So the ability to appreciate the task at hand and thinking creatively seemed natural.


What I was depriving myself from was time in the day where there was no pressure and no expectations. For the same reasons that I felt most creative on Saturday mornings and on planes, 4 a.m. has become a place of productive peace. That feeling is why I love what I do. I don't need a vacation. I don't need to step away. I just need a couple hours a day before anyone else is up.

Making an omelette, coffee, playing guitar, exercising, listening to the Dan Patrick Show, learning a language, and getting some exercise all felt like optimal experiences when not in completion for mental bandwidth slated for the company. And by 6:45, I'm working on the biggest items on my plate that I can focus on without the threat of new stimuli for the next couple of hours.

Building a schedule that protects your love for what you do is critical to optimizing the quality of your life--and your work.

Paul DeJoe, FastCompany article

I have been following Dr. Amen's recommendations about the use of email for several years.

1.  I look at email only once or twice a day

2. I stay focused.  Before looking at my email, I write the priorities of my day.

3. Then I look only for email that are related to my priorities of the day.

4.  I don't worry about responding to each piece of email.  Set aside a day once a week to deal with every other message that you receive.  

5.  I tell my new clients to send me a text if they want me to look at an email within 24 hours.     Generally it takes 72 hours for me to look at every email message.    GIVE THE Doctor some clicks:
