Emotional Agility

I have been a passionate advocate of Emotional Freedom for more than 26 years. In this video, Susan David does a great job of explaining the concept of Emotional Agility and how there are no “good” or “bad” emotions. They are all part of a feedback system that is necessary for living a meaningful life! Fully-alive, fully-expressed, fully-realized!

I love the way Susan talks about dead person goals!

Is Free Will an Illusion?

The video at the bottom of this article may challenge your assumptions about how you arrive at decisions.

Let’s look at the dictionary definition of Free Will:

FREE WILL:

  1. The apparent human ability to make choices that are not externally determined.
  2. The ability to make a choice without coercion.

In other words, Free Will is the ability to choose, think, and act voluntarily. Most people would like to believe that human beings can be the authors of their own actions and reject the idea that our actions are determined by external conditions or fate.

How Statistics in Medicine Can Be Misleading

When newspapers and scientists want to create the maximum impact for their (usually modest) findings in the field of prevention of heart disease or cancer, they publish the “relative risk” statistics, rather than “absolute risk” statistics.

To explain the two terms and their significance, let me give an example: If the chance of a thing happening is reduced from two per thousand to one per thousand, that is a “relative risk” reduction of 50%, which sounds a lot. But in reality, the “absolute risk” has gone down from 0.2% to 0.1%, or to put that another way, your chance of surviving has been increased from 99.98% to 99.99% which is really very small and nothing like as headline grabbing.
