Brain and Motivation

Recently I returned to the same venue (a year later) to present additional seminars—perhaps the greatest compliment a speaker can receive, to be repeatedly invited to make presentations. In the course of questions and answers I asked how many individuals were reading aloud for ten minutes a day. Five hands went up out of several hundred individuals. That reminded of a couple of quotations:

It is not that I do not know what to do—it is that I do not do what I know         Confucius (551-479 BC)
What I want to do I do not do but what I hate I do
                                             —Apostle Paul, Romans 7:15

It also reminded me of words attributed to Socrates: The unexamined life is not worth living.

Indeed, even as studies reveal ways to increase health, wellness, and longevity, our time on this planet is relatively short. Take time to examine your lifestyle. Are you doing what you know? A Longevity Lifestyle is designed to help you 'know' and to assist you in staying motivated to 'do what you know.'
