What do you do with your computers spare time?

Many people do what they need to do on their computers and just go about their day.  What if you could put that computer to use actually providing valuable data to the Scientific community?

There are actually several screen savers that will allow you to take part in Scientific data.  There are also programs that you can download and install such as Community World Grid.

This program will allow you to take part in a minute way by allowing your computer to process information for Scientific Research.  These research programs include data on Cancer, Aids, and numerous other diseases as well as some technology advancements.

One Geek actually built his computer with that in mind.  He thought about what he could do for the world.  Sense his computer just sits there when he’s not doing anything, why not put it to use?

This Geek also took and built his computer out of Lego parts.  This is intriguing for a lot of Geeks out there who love Lego.  In fact, one could go as far to say it’s intriguing to a lot more than just the Geek community.

Some Mistakes of Vegans and Vegetarians

One might actually think that it’s easy to just get out there and change your lifestyle, but it’s not.  It can actually be quite hard for some people.

If you want to diet, exercise, and lose weight, there are some things you need to avoid as pointed out in the video below.

Those things are as follows:

Eating too much Fat.
Eating too much Sugar & Stimulants.
Not fixing enough of your own meals.
Not getting enough exercise.
Not being in a community.

For some, working out alone, might be alright.  For many, it’s the exact opposite.  Try to either create your own community, or join an existing one.  That will boost your confidence and willingness to get out there.

 

It’s All About Initiative

Life in general is all about Initiative.  Do you have the drive necessary to make it happen?  Are you living life the way you want to?

I’ve started writing on my novel again.  That takes initiative.  If you have a story you want to write, you need to plan it out and get started writing.  Don’t wait too long, you’ll never get it done.  Trust me, I know.

I’ve had the idea to write this novel for several years now.  I could have been a published Author by now if I had that Initiative.  Hopefully, it won’t be that far off, now that I’ve started the initial stage.

There’s another area in my life that needs work though.  Exercise.  I just lack the drive that I need to make it all happen.

I often find my self laughing (on the inside) at people who drive around the parking lot looking for a parking space.  I can park out of the way at the end of the isle and walk into the store, before most people can park their car.  Seriously?  Yet, at the same time, I lack the drive to get motivated for exercise?

So, here’s what I’m going to try.  I’m going to make a poster board.  It’s going to be filled with things I want, people I want to be like, women I’d like to date, etc.  Why?  This is to hopefully give me the motivation I need to actually be someone.  To get up and go.

I’m also going to be starting a community of my own.  I’m going to be looking for certain individuals (who are already well on their way) to help jump start the community.  If you’d like to be a part of this community, let me know.  It will probably be forum based.

Keep plucking away at life and it will reward you.
