A – Z happiness from the ramblings of a happy man – C

C – Clarity

Knowledge of yourself.

Be sure – be sure you want what you wish for, be aware life will throw changes you desire in your life. Changes in your focus – changes in your wants, needs, and desires.

You may be fooled to think you need more than you do, but want you want is not what you NEED. Need is about your soul, what does your sole desire?

Love, freedom, happiness and peace of mind is what after thorough inspection and retrospection I really desired.

Where are you headed now?
Are you really chasing your real happiness, or just a corporate recorded dream ?
Are you following the pack, are you truly following the path that is YOUR path?

Success is happiness – if you are not happy – are you really suiccessful ?

Ask yourself some searching questions.

Try it.

From today ! Be yourself, it is fun.

Good luck, as ever, Simon Hamer #happiness #happy

A – Z of happiness from the ramblings of a happy man

B – Balance

Is your life in balance?

It is easy to spot when your life is not in balance, you rush around every day and always seem too short of time, and never truly feel that you are in control. Next, there are feelings of stress. Another sign is excessive road rage. Do you get to family events, do you see your kids, or your parents? What about friends, fun, hobbies and time for exercise, do you get what you consider the normal amount for your needs?

So what to do to correct it?

For a full month, log down at the end of the day on a pad, what you have spent your time doing and which bits you would like to remove or alter if you had the choice.

As you do the log, write any helpful suggestions immediately by them, if you come up with an idea to correct the situation. The suggestions, try a differing contrasting pen colour so it stands out when you look back later.

At the end of a month, do a full review and see what you can do to make your life more YOUR LIFE, and not just the life that you are living.

Think of your life as a wheel, the spokes all need to be the same length for the wheel to roll smoothly along the road of life. Which spokes need shortening (given less focus or less time) and which spokes need lengthening (given more focus or more thought and time).

Good luck, I’ll write the next one later in the week.

Happiness A – Z from the mind ramblings of a happy man

A – Acceptance

Life is a wonderful gift, that is not always fully appreciated by those of us who are lucky enough to reside in a civilised country. Life still throws us challenges, but it is quite usual to allow these challenges to stop or reduce our feelings of happiness.

Acceptance of your life as it is, without the craving for more, less or change is the bedrock of the permanent state of happiness.

I’m saying that the more we can accept ot our present life as normal, the easier it is to feel happy. I understand that accepting problems, difficulties and stress in our lives is not simple, it is a task that requires mastery through daily efforts in the way we think about our lives. Hopefully, the B – Z will help you through mastering this process.

Enough for today, I’ll post B a little later this week.

Good luck, here’s to your future increased happiness.

Are we guilty of fixed ideology?

Politics, religion, society, foreigners, colour, creed, county, race, gender, size and I’m sure you could add countless more, do we have to have a fixed view on our fellow man?

A couple of things to challenge your thoughts patterns.

I believe in God – but not religion.

I believe in being a miser – but I am a philanthropist.

What makes you challenge traditional media led thought patterns ?

Feel free to chip in.

The fun of being miserly

I amuse myself with thoughts of how I can become more miserly in my personal spending decisions. It is a game I play each and every day.

I use obsolete business cards in free draws at networking events.
They still have my name on, and the host knows it is not my present occupation, but it saves wasting present cards.

I was waiting in a car park to meet a colleague, I collected the pen refills from the broken pens that had been stood on, to reuse them later.

Visits to refuel the car are always attempted to be made as part of a journey, rather than a journey in themselves.

Today Is The Last Day To Buy Google Glass

Another one bites the dust – Google

TechCrunch

Google is ending the Glass experiment. After today, Google will stop selling the novel device — at least in its current form. Google insists the product is still in development and it’s highly likely that a new version will eventually be released.

News broke last week that the Google Glass will be pulled from the market and the project was spinning out of Google X skunkworks to exist as a standalone project.  Former Apple executive and Nest founder Tony Fadell is now overseeing the project.

The future of Glass rests in capable hands.

Glass launched with much fanfare three years ago in April 2012 and failed to become a consumer hit. But it did spark imaginative ideas, which could have been Google’s plan all along.

As a Google spokesperson told us last week, the idea behind the Explorer program was always to see how people would use the technology. Now that Google…

Twitter Confirms Acquisition Of India’s Missed Call Marketing Platform ZipDial

Twitter buys Zipdial – close fit to their strategy of providing information through links

TechCrunch

Last week TechCrunch reported Twitter was in final talks to acquire ZipDial for between $30 million and $40 million, and today the company announced the deal has closed.

ZipDial allows people to call a special phone number for a business, hang up before they incur a charge, and then receive a phone call or SMS with information about the business. This “missed call” marketing platform allows people to access content for free, which is especially useful in the developing world where many can’t afford data plans.

Twitter said about the deal “For many, their first online experience will be on a mobile device – but the cost of data may prevent them from experiencing the true power of the Internet. Twitter, in partnership with ZipDial, can make great content more accessible to everyone.” When asked about the acquisition price, Twitter told me “We aren’t disclosing financial terms of the…
