Gene klingen so glaubwürdig. Mit einem entdeckten Gen kannst du nicht argumentieren. Es ist einfach so wissenschaftlich. Deshalb lieben wir es, darüber zu lesen. Grundsätzlich wissen wir ja, was gut für uns ist und was nicht. Aber wenn wir uns nicht daran halten fühlen wir uns schlecht. Bis ein Gen entdeckt wird. Ein Gen, welches der Welt genau erklärt read more …

Painted Colorful Hands

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.
-Henry Ward Beecher

You don’t have to be an artist to do this. You could also be an accountant, nurse, farmer or a student.  When is the last time you have dipped a brush in your soul and let it colour whatever you do in daily life?

You read every self-development book that hits the bookshelves. You pay hundreds or even thousands of bucks for workshops, seminars and retreats. You seem to never get enough of that stuff. How do you know if that in itself is not some kind of problem (trust psychology folks to find problems you didn’t know you had)?

Haben dir die Hausaufgaben gefallen? Falls nicht wurde dein Hirn unbewusst so programmiert, dass du alles, was auch nur den Hauch einer Gemeinsamkeit mit Hausaufgaben hat, grundsätzlich nicht machen willst.

One of the biggest challenges of changing your mental climate is the fact that you have backed up your beliefs with years of evidence. Telling you to change your beliefs is a bit like telling a detective read more …

Wenn du Zeit sparen willst, überlege dir wofür. Sonst kann es gut sein, dass die Energie die du investieren musst, dich so stresst, dass es sich nicht lohnt. Zeit sparen und glücklich sein widersprechen sich nicht immer. Es ist aber definitiv gut zu wissen, wann dies der Fall ist.

Ein Grund warum Selbst-Hilfe-Übungen und andere Dinge die gut für uns wären nicht motivieren, ist dass sie eindimensional sind: es sind nur Wörter. Keine Wörter die ein Bild malen oder eine Geschichte erzählen sondern funktionale, nackte

Genes sound so trustworthy. You can’t argue with a discovered gene. It’s just so sciency. Which is precisely why we like to read about them. Largely we know what’s good for us but we don’t do it. So we feel bad. That is until a gene is discovered. A gene that will explain to the world exactly,

Sometimes it’s a single book. Or CDs (who still has any of those?). We can’t throw them away although there’s no rational reason to keep them. It’s nothing with sentimental value, like a gift from someone special, because that is a bit of a no-brainer why we can’t (and maybe shouldn’t) get rid of it.
