“The truth is our finest moments are likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled, for it is only such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways of truer answers.”
—M. Scott Peck, 20th Century American psychiatrist and author

Most people have a relatively short attention span. Some say it is only around seven seconds before they move on to another shiny object.
It is for this reason I try, on most days, to select and share thought-provoking quotes of only one or two sentences. If the quotes I offer grab you, I do my best to keep my commentaries and exercises to a minute or less.
Your assignment is to simply re-read today’s quote to explore its wisdom. For extra credit, please reply to this post with your views and perspective on searching for different ways and truer answers.
“Intuition becomes increasingly valuable in the new information society precisely because there is so much data.”
-John Naisbitt, American Author and Specialist in Future Studies
When was the last time you did a Google search? What subject were you investigating? How many hits did you get, and how many were actually relevant to your inquiry?
I recall doing book reports in my youth, going to the library, or examining my own World Book Encyclopedia to piece together my paper.
Today, we have infinite amounts of information on most subjects. Navigating the world with some sense of sanity has made our intuitive skills and abilities of discernment more important than ever before.
What are some of your most useful intuitive strategies to sort through the volumes of information to help you make optimal decisions? Consider seeking input on this subject from others, to discover ideas you might not have considered. This may be just the data you need most.
“A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.”
– George Moore, novelist
One of my favorite movies from my youth was The Wizard of Oz. In those days, it was only on once a year – and on that day, we actually got to eat dinner in our living room on those corny folding trays.
The fundamental message of the film was there’s no place like home… which fits perfectly with Moore’s quote.
Today and this week, explore those things that you are searching for and see just how many are in your own home or community.
