This course helps you to cure your sleeplessness. This advice for sleep deficiency or insomnia comes in an easy-to-read, concise format. Solve your sleep problems and get on with your life. This self-paced course requires no textbook or instructor.
When you are 20% sleep-deficient, you have the mental acuity of someone who is drunk (Source: Sleep Institute). And that's no way to be. This course pays for itself several times over by giving you weapons in the war on sleeplessness.
I recently completed "The Promise of Sleep" by William C. Dement, M.D., Ph.D., which told me much more than I ever wanted to know about sleep.
Your sleep course has the most sensible, concise and straight-
forward advice that hits many nails on their head. I appreciate the effortmade in behalf of those of us who read it.
Excellent work at Mindconnection!
Approximate study time: 21 hours
Basically, your brain will be allowed to function the way it's supposed to. As will your immune system, central nervous system, career, interpersonal relationships, etc.
Some people spend thousands of dollars and take lots of drugs, in attempt to fix their sleep deficiency problem. You don't have to do either, and you can get results faster from this course than from any prescription drug therapy.
People who don't solve their sleep deficiency problem end up having other, more destructive problems as a result. A lack of sleep damages your general health, your mental acuity, your personal and business relationships, and a long list of other valuable parts of your life. Isn't it better to spend a few bucks on this course to preserve those, than to watch what's best in life just slip away?
This looks really interesting but I can't figure out what you are sending or how you are sending it.
These are downloadable files. In other words, you get download instructions as soon as the buying part is done and you get the files right away.
What is it that I'm going to get and how? Is it a file that I’ll download? Is it mailed?
As soon as your purchase is complete, you will receive download instructions both on screen and via e-mail. You download self-extracting zip file that contains the course material. Depending on the course, the individual files will be in the rich text format or in the e-book format. Most materials are in the easier-to-handle rich text format.
Are we talking about a lot of pages for me to read?
Here's something that pleasantly surprises most people about these.
If you look at a typical $99 professional book, most of it is filler. These courses don't have the filler. Ditto for $995 seminars covering the same information. Our courses get right to the meat, saving you the effort of wading through pages of nonsense. We don't mass up the high overhead of generating the filler, and we pass the savings on to our customers.
Do your courses on project management prepare me for the various certification routes of the Project Management Institute?
No. The material does not focus on exam preparation. It focuses on improving your real-world skills. However, what you learn will not impede certification.
Are you one of the approved (by PMI) course providers?
No. We are not affiliated with the Project Management Institute, although we may consider going that direction. Our goal is not to make you spend a lot
of money learning how to answer test questions. Our goal is to teach you how to do your job better.
How long does each of your courses take?
It depends on the student. These courses are essentially white papers with exercises to help you relate the information to what you are doing now. You can read the material in each course in under an hour. But, how long it takes to digest it and apply it is up to you.
Do I have to buy books in addition to your course material? Will those books have to be bought from you?
To both questions, no. You don't have to buy anything else. Each course stands on its own.
What if your course material is not clear? Are your course writers available for clarification? Since it is not possible to read all material at one shot, and collect all questions at the same time, will the course writers be available as needed or on a one time basis?
a. It will be clear.
c. Your success is important. If you have a question that is germane to the material, and not a probe for free consulting services, we will help you understand the material. We have kept the prices low, because not everyone can afford $995 for a two-day seminar that amounts to little more than a book promo. This is not a book promo.
What if I have other questions?
We'll answer to whatever extent is reasonable. It may be possible that you will ask questions that require developing a new course--some aspect of successful project management we didn't cover and that is not part of the normal project management training regimen. In that case, you would get the new course for free.
Do you have other courses?
Yes, and we are developing more. You can always write to us with specific needs, and we will adjust our product development accordingly. Also, it's a good idea to check Mindconnection on a regular basis, just to see what is new.
Who writes these courses?
That depends on the subject. For example, Dr. Jay Prince wrote the behavior courses based on his experience as a licensed therapist.
All of the courses are well-researched and devoid of pseudoscience. Most are written by a subject matter expert. All are reviewed by a professional editor for clarity and succinctness.
Do your courses qualify for employer reimbursement?
Possibly not, because they are not accredited. Then again, our cost is very low. So, you must ask yourself if that small amount is worth investing into the skills you need to keep yourself employed and employable.
The goal here is not to pile up paper credits. The goal is to get the information you would ordinarily get only from a lifetime of working in project management--if even then. We save you "classroom time" in the "school of hard knocks." You will recover your investment (and then some), simply because you will be that much better at what you do.
How much time can I reasonably expect to save, once I use the principles in your time management course?
That depends on how you presently approach your work. The typical student can expect to increase productivity by 50%. If you look at the way most people do their work, and then work your way through the course, you'll see why this is so. The author of that course works three full-time jobs and is Chair for one non-profit and acting Chair for another. Yet, he manages to excel in all of these roles while still maintaining outstanding health and enjoyment of life.
Sleep: The Final Frontier.
Many cultures, especially the corporate ones in the United States, hold sleep deficiency up as a badge of honor.
But, it is nothing to be proud of. In fact, it is something to fear.
You may be underperforming right now, and not even be aware of that. This is one of the problems with inadequate sleep--it dulls your awareness so that you don't even know you are badly in need of sleep.
Consider these facts:
The National Highway Traffic Administration attributes over 100,000 traffic "accidents" each year to insufficient sleep. The actual number is probably much higher.
The Sleep Institute has found sleep deficiency to be the normal condition of Americans—and that explains a lot of the problems we are having today with inattention and the inability to focus enough to engage in critical thought.
Twice each year, most of America changes the clock in a time-robbing exercise amazingly referred to as "Daylight Savings Time." In reality, the spring change robs millions of an hour of daylight each morning and shifts an hour of daylight into "post bedtime." Either direction, the clock is suddenly out of synch with
established circadian rhythms. Industrial injuries ("accidents") and traffic incidents increase for about three weeks following each of these clock changes.
People who are religious about their bedtimes look much younger than, and have more energy than, their "normal" counterparts.
Depression and insomnia often go hand in hand.
The fact that work performance suffers as sleeplessness goes up needs no substantiation—we all know this from experience.
A person who is 20% sleep deprived has the mental acuity of a person who is legally drunk. By the way, CEOs often brag about how "hard" they "work" and how little sleep they get—4 to 6 hours is common. Now you know why layoffs happen—a bunch of drunks run most of our corporations.
Sleep deficits cause a dulling of the mind, irritability, and loss of focus. If you are having problems with grasping new information, dealing with others, or concentrating, consider sleep deficit a prime area to address.
Yes, sleep deficiency is costly in finances, human potential, and the ability to enjoy life. Now, you can do something about it. In response to repeated requests for a course like this, Mindconnection researched the topic to provide answers to a problem that brings untold misery to millions of people each day.
But don't worry--you won't fall asleep reading it. Rather than fill it with fluff, we provide information in a concise, easy to read, practical format so you can solve your sleep problem and get on with your life. The time you spend studying this will be the best time you spend.
My son bought me this course for me, and finally convinced me to try it. After years of sleeping pills and other "help" from doctors, I have finally beaten the sleeping issue. No longer do I drag myself out of bed, but I greet each day feeling rested. I highly recommend this course on curing sleeplessness.
Reviewer: Roberta Larson (Chicago, IL)
Three different doctors could not help me. In fact, things seemed to get worse when I was on their prescription drugs (this is all they offered). Out of desperation, I did a Google search and I found this course. It was THE answer I needed. Thank you, thank you!
I'm 90% cured, 2.4.2010
Reviewer: Julie Eckstein (Queens, NY)
Who came up with this stuff? I've been battling insomnia since the early 1980s, and the doctors I've seen have been nothing but useless drug pushers.
For less than the price of my monthly co-pay, I've now solved most of my sleep issues. The one downside is that when I printed this out it was smaller than I had expected. Seems about book sized.
No more sleeping pills, 11.25.2009
Reviewer: Joachim Rabinowitz (New York, NY)
I've had sleep issues for as long as I can remember, and doctors haven't really helped. I've tried various sleeping pills, and they have produced other problems without helping me actually sleep better.
After taking this course, I didn't put much of it to use and yet I noticed some improvement. So I went back and really dug into it, and now with all suggestions being used I believe my sleepless nights are a thing of the past.
