Who has an idea?

Saturday, March 09, 2013

The need to be right all the time is the biggest bar to ideas. It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong than to be always right by having no ideas at all." Edward de Bono

I have so much to learn. If I really want to learn then I have to learn to be really quiet and listen. Not all my ideas are correct. I don't always know the best way to go about everything. I am sometimes -gulp- sorry, WRONG.

I will never find out I am wrong or misguided if I don't let someone else take the lead or bask in the limelight. The best leaders let their followers lead the way. The smartest people know when to shut up .

The world is full of ideas you just need to look for them . This site has a million different ideas on weight loss and exercising. Everyone eats different foods ,and there are a million different forms of exercise. Visit your friends pages and listen and learn. Take their ideas to heart give them a spin. Maybe you'll get off that plateau you've been on forever. Maybe the scale will go down quicker. Maybe you'll have more fun than you ever thought possible.

Maybe just maybe you are going in the wrong direction and your friend can set you to right. Maybe your ideas are not as solid as you think. Maybe there is a better quicker easier solution.

There are a million ideas on this site, open your heart and mind to some of them and your world will change, of that I am sure. so now who has an IDEA?

    I have no ideas to add to a terrific blog ...... Well said and I keep my ears and open to daily blogs by the experts and from fine spark members who are on the same journey ............ Doesn't matter who gets there first ........ What does matter is that we are all in the running ............. (That qualifies for champions!--Hoorah!) ....... emoticon

    Great blog! As always, you give us lots to think about. I must say, I am terrible for thinking I am right when I should be looking at all angles of things. It gets me in trouble sometimes, this stubbornness of mine. I'm going to keep these words of yours in mind today, try to keep an open mind!

    Nice blog! I have ideas of what works for me, I think of the three C's:
    Constancy - doing something regularly and without fail
    Cumulative - what you do today will better affect you later, along with what you did yesterday and what you do tomorrow.
    Concise - referring to good form in exercising and portion control in your food and drink.
    These details are the core of my plan, they have gotten me over my plateau!

    My idea is to use the exercises and exercise videos more.

    Mmm , just made some Dannon Greek Yogurt , topped with fresh pineapple and walnuts and thought to myself that need to stop by for daily fix of Joanne ! You should write for Newspaper ! This is true , learning to accept new ideas and approaches are essential for weight loss or any new adventure in our lives, being able to accept the fact that other people may have a better way is actually being a mature individual ! Good one , Jo - Thanks :) Hugs Karen emoticon
