My notes and photos at the event below.
Photos (see in full-screen):
Jim on women: you want to take care about everything, but you;
Adults are just children with better excuses;
Argument: if Romanian are (some of) the best gymnasts in the world, isn’t it strange that so few people do sports?
In the (near) future, people will start telecommuting;
Romanians have a tendency to tell everyone else about a problem, if they have a problem, except for that person itself;
Most people in the world are dehydrated;
Book title (not necessarily to read the book): “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water: You Are Not Sick, You Are Thirsty!, Don’t Treat Thirst with Medications!, a Preventive and Self-Education Manual for” – Fereydoon BATMANGHELIDJ;
This is the only body you have; you have to take care of it;
You don’t sleep for your body, but for your brain;
Normally, we don’t have the time to think about what we think about;
Main problems for health:
In life: 75% of our health is given by our lifestyle choices, while 25% by our (good) genes;
The more you know about a topic, the more you know you don’t know about that topic;
- Perfect is unreal;
- Imperfect is real;
What is the most important 1/10th of a second? This moment;
A rather inadequate question: “How many times to I have to tell you this?”;
Funny – “Give him a smile. Not that kind of a smile”;
Very good addressing of objectives;
“Parents are not always right, but they should always be treated right”;
Question to ask to a person doing an unpleasant behavior:
“When you did that, what was your intention?” “…” “That didn’t work; would you like to know what would work if you intend to …”;
When you give feed-back, it should be a balanced feed-back:
- Improve side;
- Appreciate side;
When you give feed-back to a child, give both kind of feed-back;
What do you do with a child who wants to the one thing he/she’s not supposed to do?
Option for use, instead of “but”: “otherwise”;
Whatever you put your attention on, it grows;
Parents have to get used to their children testing the rules;
A says something to B;
When this happens, B should repeat the thing to A, to make sure B understood correctly;
Men are not as good as women at communicating;
Once you get paid, you turn professional; you’re a professional at something if you get money for doing that job;
People tend to do the same things over and over again;
When you read / write / go and get a shortcut you are exposed to other people’s thoughts; you learn from them; thus, education is a very good thing;
You are creating heaven or hell around you;
Personal note: Jim can move me, touch me;
Solutions of a priest in South America:
- Group therapy;
- Boys & girls being boys / girls scouts;
Jim’s role, as self-defined: “I’m just here to remind you to do it”;
Addressing to the audience: “The world needs more of you”.
Bottom line: Well, as told above, Jim still moves me, after all those years I’ve seen him in conferences.
