This 'lockdown' era , as restrictive as it might sound, presents you with a lot of choices. As human beings, we always have choices. We are endowed with neural capabilities that allow us to act by habit and to act by choice. Especially, when we are challenged and when our vanity values are triggered, we want to have the FREEDOM of choice.

Keeping your movement restricted is of course curbing your freedom. To many it's a challenge of your right to liberty as in "Give me Liberty or Give me Death." However, deep inside, you know that the intention is not to rob you of your liberty per se. It is an event-based measure to preserve your reason to fight for the liberty which you so cherish...your life. And it is not about your life only. It is about the lives of those around you. Those whom you love and love you. Those whom you love and do not love you. Those who love you and you do not love. And, those who do not know you. 

Seriously, don't you get it! Don't you get it? These are air mines. Floating around. Or not? No one is very very sure. What the authorities are saying is that they have no laser target solution. They are now using crude and rude methods to contain the onslaught. The very reason they are doing this is to ensure that you can fight for your liberty, another day.

The only thing I am sure about this is that if you inject yourself with disinfectants, you will get rid of the virus...and the host.

Are you going to resist a Tsunami warning?  A earthquake prediction? When these disasters will hit you? Why is running away from the coronavirus any different?  Running away from the coronavirus is running away from people. Running away from harmless looking people is not a norm. We can't see, feel, hear, touch or smell the danger. So, the need has to be enforced.

Just imagine there is a heavy storm outside, it's raining cats and dogs ...and once in a while tractors and trucks. The streets are flooded. It has been like that for a few days. It will be like that for the next six weeks. What would you do? What can you do? You can dance in the rain without going out into the rain.

How to Survive a Difficult Work Environment

  If not verbatim, this is as close to what I heard from Mark Schaefer, a top-notch marketing guru and an innovative giant in his field, “Where there can be corruption, there will be corruption.” Mark tells it like it is. There are more people who choose to be politically correct than being honest, holding preciously to “let’s not rock the boat” pseudo-wisdom until they taste the contaminated water. There is nothing wrong thinking that people are good. It’s dangerous to believe it despite the red flags. I agree with Mark. Fully. Where there can be corruption, there will be corruption. Jose told me he cornered one of his better bosses, Tony near the staircase after an announcement of new measures to arrest corruption. This was a month after a series of investigations and a spate of resignations. “I told Tony that I disagreed with more PowerPoints, more rules. They only provide the covers, guidelines for the crooks to avoid detection,” Jose recalled. “I mean how fool-proof is

How to use Self-Affirmation to Overcome a Self-Defeating Image

  Karsten Winegaert on Unsplash   Mike Tyson. After him, I lost interest in boxing. A pugilist who was as infamous for his bite as he was famous for his fight, Mike Tyson was the meanest dude. The baddest man on the planet. The other infamous dental mental was Luis Suarez, who was a phenomenal knock out specialist with the Liverpool Football Club. Since moving to Spain, perhaps there are better meal deals there, he has stopped sinking his teeth into raw human flesh. His right foot is causing most of the pain. To opposing teams. Mike Tyson. When he was too good to ignore, they say the power of his punch was equivalent to half a metric ton. Taking a punch from Tyson was like having a Grand Piano land on your face. More than the power, he was feared for his speed and positioning. But, if the continuum from research to successful application is a clean straight line, you, even if you are Average Joe, can whup Tyson. If you did your job well, you don’t have to face the music.

Gurus Show the Way But Success Takes Work

  Antoinne Julien on Unsplash I don’t want to antagonize the self-help gods. There are enough of them and their fans around to shut me out with infinite wisdom and echoes of such. And, I think they are, fundamentally, good for society. With “People Tweak” as the site brand, I can’t really be too far off. From dabbling in self-help. But should self-help products come with a warning? Fundamentally, self-help gurus are good for the human race. The race to success. Whatever that means to whoever chasing the whatever. How more motivational can it be than having a person who had won the race, with gold medals straining his neck, urging you on, wearing the designer outfit you salivate over, cruising next to you in a cabriolet. To be affirmation specific, he is wearing a dark blue Hugo Boss, driving a red Porsche 911 cabriolet. (Right hand up; I don’t pretend to be intimate with a Hugo Boss or a Porsche. The only Boss I had was a Japan made spectacle frame. No Hugo, just Boss. The brand w
