Think Outside the Box while Thinking about Exercise

Chris Freytag would like us to think outside the box while thinking about exercise. You can exercise anywhere, anytime, the only thing it takes is some creative thinking. Recently, I´ve taken up physical exercise again, but somewhat different compared to the past. Instead of going to the gym I do push ups, dance to some tunes, all in the comfort of my living room. The trick I´ve used to get me started is to set a goal to just exercise for 10 minutes or so. The happy surprise is that since it feels so good doing it, I usually keep up with it longer. This little exercise program of mine has also got me more active during the rest of the day and my overall well being has improved. And the only thing it took was a few minutes of exercise!

IBM Think Notepads


IBM gave away these wonderful notepads to their employees and others outside the company to encourage thinking. I´m a big sucker on these kind of things, so if you have one notepad to sell, please, get in touch. IBM Logo Merchandise Store has a Think Note Jotter IBM Vintage for sale.


From the IBM Archives it says:


When Thomas J. Watson joins the Computer-Tabulating Recording Company -- the forerunner of today's IBM -- in 1914, he brings with him the "Think" motto he coined when he managed the sales and advertising departments at the National Cash Register Company. "Thought," he says, "has been the father of every advance since time began. 'I didn't think' has cost the world millions of dollars." Soon, the one-word slogan "THINK" appears in large block-letter signs in offices and plants throughout the company.


Listen to Thomas Watson as he speaks about thinking. Here is the transcript of the same speech.

The Power of Gratitude

Would you like to put yourself in a better mood and enjoy it´s accompanying benefits? Why not take up the practice of gratitude and start with this little daily exercise?


The danger is that this exercise seems so trivial that it isn't worth doing. But consider this: people are constantly worrying about things they don't have or things that haven't happened, consequently they rarely take stock of the beneficial things that they do have and good things that have already happened. If it's possible for even the simplest negative thought to provoke a change in mood, then why not a positive grateful thought as well?
