Be careful you don't get trapped by parochial perspectives. Sometimes, we can
see things from our own point of view as being normal or expected--and be
totally wrong about that.|
Whether you are carrying on a conversation or trying to solve a problem, try asking "What if" questions.
Here's an example of something that happened to me. I watched a movie on DVD, and when the thing got to the end, it wouldn't play. The part I missed? The last 37 seconds of the movie. Talk about frustrating. I called a friend to ask if he had seen the movie and could tell me the ending. He asked me if I had tried cleaning the back side of the DVD. No, I hadn't--but I did, and it worked.
You see, I handle DVDs, CDs, and other media with reverence and care. It would never occur to me that any person would handle touch the back side. So, I didn't even look there to see if someone had left fingerprints or boogers. I handle these by the edges, and there is no reason for me to even turn it over.
I ended up not using my brainpower, because I looked at this from my own perspective. I should have asked, "What could go wrong with the DVD? Might someone have handled it carelessly?"
Human teeth are evidence that the theory of "intelligent design" is not
the product of an observant mind. Humans are the only creatures who must
cook their food--otherwise, our soft enamel just wears right down. We
have "wisdom teeth" that take up too much space in our jaws and must be
extracted. The list of dental defects goes on and on--and those defects
produce everything from tooth pain to general headaches.|
The point of this opening observation is we all either should or do spend time at the dentist's office. I have an outstanding dentist with an outstanding office staff. Consequently, I have just about zero wait when I arrive for an appointment. But I have had other dentists, and I have experienced the waiting that goes well past the appointment time. My previous dentist once made me wait nearly two hours--after I had waited several months to get in!
So, here are some tips to save time at the dentist's office:
Of course, the best way to reduce time at the dentist is to reduce the work the dentist has to do. Here are some tips on that:
And finally, don't smoke. This insane practice damages gum tissue, and it causes all kinds of other problems. Even if you don't value your teeth, think of the effect on your brain. Smoking is great for those who want to lower their IQs (do a yahoo search on this subject, if you--for some reason--doubt this). For the rest of us, it's not a good idea.
You can apply all of the above to your doctor, as well--just change the tooth care details to body care details. And remember that doctors and dentists are there primarily to handle the disease--caring for your health is up to you. Every minute spent on healthcare saves you hours of disease care.
|See this month's product, so you can save big on your automobile insurance. You can use many of the same concepts (though not the details) to save on home owners (or renters) insurance, as well. If investing that $19.97 into this course drops your auto premiums by 20%--well, you do the math. Where else will you make such a good return?|
For many people, pets are part of the family. Thus, a pet-napping or other
loss of a pet is a security issue. Of course, the AT can take anything
from you with no reason at all. But barring that kind of disaster, what
can you do to keep Fido or Tabby safe from predation?|
The Humane Society offers advice on this frequently--and they are just one of many sources. Some of the tips I've gleaned are as follows:
Why do these outside things if you have an indoor animal? It's always possible your cat or dog will rocket past you through the open door to chase a squirrel or for some other stupid reason. Without the experiences suggested above, your animal won't know when to stop, and is likely to dash right into traffic.

And, no, it's not a browbeating to walk around with a book on your head. Take a few minutes to read it--you'll be glad you did.
Special thanks to Bruce Willis for visiting our troops in Iraq. I don't know Mr. Willis, but wouldn't it be nice if we all made a point of telling the veterans we do know how much we appreciate them.
