"What happens if the Immovable Object meets the Unstoppable Force?".
Smartass Kid To Grade 7 Physics Teacher, 2010

Skimming Headlines Is Now Considered Well Read.
Thank Heavens For Video. On Second Thought, Scratch That.

CARTOON CROWD OF PEOPLE IMAGE

BRAIN THOUGHTS The average human attention span was recently announced to be exactly the same as that of a middle-aged North American House-fly. Not kidding. Just how they knew the House Fly was middle-aged is beyond the scope of this essay. We suspect it was the receding hairline, beer-belly physique and speedo bathing suit.

So, we thought, we better bloody-well keep this short. And thanks for reading this far by-the-way. Really, really appreciate your effort.

Anyway, attention spans -- the length of time one can pay attention to the task at hand -- are apparently shrinking day-by-day. Just like that middle-aged House Fly flits from that egg salad sandwhich, over to the kitchen sink and then to plunk perfectly centered on your TV screen, we also flit about with all this twitting and tweeting and bouncey-ball internet activity.

Social Media multi-tasking has apparently added zip to the grey matter in your lovely noggin. What the brain figured-out was how to steal slices of your overall attention capacity -- and like the under-reported canned bean rations of the 1930's, doles out processing power equally amongst all tasks in the que, hat in hand. One-hundred-forty characters maybe the new canned bean ration.

And if that's too much, have no fear, Telepathy will be our next big thing. Imagine not having to communicate at all. This could be huge.

There has never been a time quite like this for information junkies. Nirvana. The quandry now appears to be one of absorption. With more and more, the brain struggles absorbing less and less. The depth of knowledge for many will be half-inch deep and a mile-wide.

And that's being generous. Titalation does not count. The depth, sadly, will be that of a Spring mud puddle and about as interesting for many of the anticipated 8 billion lovely souls in 2020.

For others, the so-called truly informed smart people, have employed very narrow trusted channels, many of them subscription models, to delve the depths seeking truth. Even then, the sheer volume of chatter is beyond human comprehension. Entire industries exist to serve the wealthy.

And it's serious business. Truth about anything in particular is now currency. Good as gold. When an errant twit can be misinterpreted by these machines, fortunes rise and fall on what used to be Wall Street.

It's not just instant, it's constant and mostly irrelevant. The trend now is to simply forward the link. Don't read it. Just forwarding the link is enough to be considered well informed. Impressive skill on resume. Able to forward.

FAILURES WHO CHANGED THE WORLD ARTICLE BANNER

Medium.com, Everday Epiphany
ALEXA DONCSECZ

The people who know the most about failure are the ones who have succeeded. It’s easy to get into the mentality that the greats have always been great, and that they have always been seen as superior at what they do. That is often far from the truth, but we don’t always hear about it. The greats to whom we have given such high regard have one very important thing in common, and that is persistence. There will be times in life when you are the only one who can see your vision, but that doesn’t make it any less real.

The name that has become synonymous with “genius,” Albert Einstein, didn’t speak until age four and didn’t read until age seven. So for all of you who have to endure the proud parent boasting about their two-year-old who peruses Aristotle on the weekends, forced to wonder whether you’re as smart as this kid is going to be, this one’s for you. Einstein went on to be expelled from school as a child and rejected from his college of choice, Zurich Polytechnic. But at the end of the day, his classmates couldn’t really compete with the theory of relativity.

Walt Disney, the mind behind the movies and parks that shaped many a childhood, apparently lacked imagination. And he was fired by the editor of his local newspaper because of it. His bad luck progressed to include failed business ventures, bankruptcy, and 302 rejections before finally receiving financing for Disney World. So the next time you get rejected, just remember…only 301 more attempts and you’ll be living your dream.

Theodor Seuss Giesel, better known today as Dr. Seuss, was rejected 27 times before his first book, And to Think that I Saw it on Mulberry Street was published. And J.K. Rowling, who is now richer than the Queen of England, went through 12 publishers before one of them took interest in Harry Potter. At the time, she was dirt poor, raising a child as a single parent, severely depressed, and trying to attend school. Here’s what she has to say about her success:

“You might never fail on the scale that I did, but it is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all — in which case you fail by default.”

Charles Darwin, the scientist who developed the theory of evolution by natural selection, gave up on a medical career and was chastised for being too lazy, for having his head in the clouds. Thomas Edison found 10,000 ways not to make a lightbulb light up before he could find one way that worked.

How often do you think we give up after attempt #9,999?

Winston Churchill was defeated in every single election for public office until age 62 when he ran for Prime Minister. Jerry Seinfeld was booed off the stage the first time he attempted comedy and Fred Astaire was told that he can’t act and can’t sing. Oprah Winfrey was deemed “unfit for TV” before she began the highest-rated talk show in American television history.

Out of more than 800 finished pieces, Vincent Van Gogh sold only a single painting during his lifetime, and that was to a friend for a small amount of money. Today his most expensive painting is valued at $142.7 million. And before Elvis Presley became the King he was fired by the manager of the Grand Ole Opry after only one performance, being told, “You ain’t goin’ nowhere, son.”

Stephen King received 30 rejections for his novel Carrie before finally throwing it in the trash. His wife dug it out and encouraged him to resubmit it, and that was the beginning of 49 novels selling 350 million copies (not to mention essentially having his own bookshelf in Barnes & Noble with his abundance of titles).

Michael Jordan was cut from the high school basketball team. It has been said that he missed more than 9,000 shots throughout his career and lost almost 300 games. He missed what could have been a winning shot on 26 occasions, and to this he says, “I have failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” It’s like how Babe Ruth, who holds the record for strikeouts, says that “Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.”

Remember: Next time you get discouraged, consider that it could be your very next attempt that gets you to where you are trying to go, or perhaps it will be the one that propels you to something even better.

DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY ARTICLE BANNER

We all suffer, every day: worry, procrastination, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, irritated, angry, frustrated, wishing things were different, comparing ourselves to others, worried we’re missing out, wishing other people would be different, feeling offended, loneliness, fear of failure, not wanting to do something, wishing we had less fat or bigger boobs or bigger muscles, angry at being controlled, wanting to find the perfect someone, wishing our partner was more perfect, stressed about finances, not wanting to think about problems, not knowing how to fix things, uncertain about choices, rushing from one task to the next, not liking our jobs.

And yet, these problems are self-created.

They’re real, but our tricky minds have created them. The problems are in our heads, created by some ideal/fantasy/expectation of how we wished the world would be, or hope it will be but fear it won’t be. It exists in our heads.

Try this, for a minute: let all of that go for a moment, and just pay attention to the physical things around you right now. Your body, the light, sounds, the thing you’re sitting on, the things moving or sitting still around you. Don’t judge them against what they should be, but just observe what they actually are.

See this moment as it is, without all the things you’re worried/frustrated/angry about. Let go of all of those things, and just see this moment.

It is perfect, as it is.

Accept this moment. Cherish it. This is real, and it is wonderful.

Remember: You can go back to worrying about everything else in a moment.
