Is True Objectivity Possible?

I try to be objective when considering new information.  I try to place myself in someone else’s shoes when considering their behavior and the alternatives they may have had available to them.

However, I still do not believe true objectivity is possible.  There will always be a part of my history that will influence my discussion making process.

What do you think?  Is true objectivity possible?




Play More

Everyone knows playing is important for children, but it is also important for adults.  There are a lot of benefits to playing.

Here are a few examples:

It’s fun.
It’s a great way to reduce stress.
It exercises the brain, improves creativity, and problem solving skills.
It strengthens relationships.

There are a variety of ways adults can participate in playing:  video games, board games, puzzles, sport teams, and host of other activities that could be listed.

Remember to spend time playing today.  It’s good for you.


You are Important

Love yourself, instead of abusing yourself.   – Karolina Kurkova



I just finished reading The 100 Most Powerful Affirmations for Social Problems by Jason Thomas.  The writer starts by explaining how affirmations work.  He also said affirmations should be positive and actionable.

Here are a few examples:

  • I am strong in my values and confident in my abilities.
  • I have the ability to plan, organize, and do.
  • I am resilient and fierce.
  • I have the power within me to create the life I desire.

I must admit, the whole thing seems a bit silly to me.  Has anyone actually tried using affirmations?  If so, did you notice any benefit?
