One day around the beginning of January, 2017, a friend of mine and I were on a call; her Windows 10 Professional powered Dell computer being evaluated for HIPAA compliance so she could start her new online job; medical coding from home. However, the IT Department of the company she’s coding for didn’t really inspire much confidence; saying software wasn’t present that actually was and trying to do stuff that was already completed. So, it really didn’t come as a surprise to me when they insisted on putting Malwarebytes 3.0 in her computer, even though she already had McAfee antivirus/malware software installed. Continue reading Malwarebytes Conflicts With McAfee Demonstrating HIPAA Stupidity.
It never really ceases to amaze me how one or even two events in your life can really affect your entire future. Sometimes they just creep up on you in the sneakiest of ways, without you realizing it for about twenty years or so. “Yet,” it happens. All it takes is a few awesome sexual encounters with a girl you really can get into and she says (or does) one thing that, whether you realize it or not, has negatively affected your intimate relationships for the next decade, “At least!” Continue reading Some Reasons A Guy Won’t Make A Move On You Sexually.
What do you look for in a church? Are you happy with a church because the location is convenient, the people are nice, and the service simply makes you feel good? Or, do you expect more from your church? Continue reading Tips To Find The Best Churches In Sussex County NJ.
When it comes to prayer; it would seem that everyone and their mother has the best formula for doing it. However, I’ve often found myself wondering just how much of what is out there on the subject isn’t just out and out garbage. Perhaps the formulas offered are nothing short of deception; put out on the web by church leaders just looking for docile sheep to add to their flock? Thankfully though; The Bible tells us a few things that have helped me personally to come up with a format, which might actually help you. Continue reading How To Pray Effectively; What I’ve Discovered Thus Far.
As of December 12, 2016; I’ve finally moved away from Office 2010 and have an annual subscription to Office 365. Having more than one aged Windows 10 powered computer; I had no desire to drop around four-hundred bucks on computers that may or may not make it another four years. So, “Yeah,” I felt that the ninety-nine-dollar annual fee was rather worth it. Continue reading Office 365 And JAWS 18.
The morning’s dream of Friday, October 21, 2016, was yet another perfect example of how dreams can often outline the basic steps we should follow when it comes to dealing with situations. In other words; when we’re looking for solutions to real-time problems, our dreams will hand us the answers we need; not in literal contexts, but in scenarios that will give us outlines based on principle. Just because a dream doesn’t match our situations in imagery or out and out experience; it is by looking at the principles presented in the dream that we can then find our real life solutions. If I’ve lost you here then let me explain. Continue reading cPanel Web Hosting Dream Provides Scripted Plan In Reality.
Based on my little Java 8 Update 111 experience; anyone using Jaws 17 or any of the JAWS for Windows versions might want to consider deactivating the Java bridge before taking new Java updates in future. I’m not sure how it is on 32 bit machines running JFW. But on my 64 bit Windows 10 powered computers the only way to get JAWS to work with Java involved turning the Java Bridge off and then restarting the computer before turning it back on again. Continue reading Java Updates With JAWS Running Windows 10.
November 22, 2016 was one of those days where only about two hours of sleep was possible; if we could even call it sleep. However, during that two hours of largely dozing in and out; my dreams seemed to be desperately trying to tell me that I would be getting some help (or needed help) in dealing with those things that really bug me. Continue reading Dreaming About Bugs Meaning.
On Friday, October 14, 2016 I reactivated comments across the board on this site. I had disabled them for a few months due to Comment Spam and a bit of stalking from one cranky assed bitch of a business owner from Stanhope NJ. However, after waking from a dream in which I was reactivating the comments on this site I figured that was my cue to do it in reality. So, “I did,” and so far so good. Continue reading No Longer Free Is Making Akismet Hardly Worth It To Me.
I had a dream on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 about checking out the keyboard shortcuts in WordPress for managing comments. The first thought that came to mind when I woke from the dream was, “Does this mean I might actually get a real comment on this site from someone within the next few days who’s not using a spam bot?” Continue reading The Best Way To Control Spam Is To Know What It Looks Like.
When it came my time to vote during the 2016 elections; I voted for the person that would be the easiest to impeach if push came to shove. So, “No,” Hillary Clinton didn’t get my vote because she was way to embedded in the political system here in America; having friends in all the right places who make it possible to help her, “Do no wrong.” So, “Yeah,” Trump was it for me. Continue reading How The Media Got It All Wrong About President Trump.
On Friday, October 14, 2016 pictures of Johnny D’Angelo of Newton NJ and Catherine Moore of Cape Coral Florida were posted on Facebook. The pictures showed them together; despite the fact that Catherine Moore was a married woman with three children and living with her husband at her in-laws house. Clearly, ethics weren’t a concern for these two lovebirds, any more than the law is; Universal and otherwise. “However,” even more disturbing were some of the responses folks had to these pictures; clearly speaking to the all-time low in the moral values they would have otherwise had if they truly knew the Lord. Continue reading Catherine Moore; Facebook Dating Ignoring Married Law And God.
“Of course,” if you really do think you have a problem getting it up and keeping it hard; you should always talk to your doctor, “First!” But, have you ever considered the possibility that half of men over 40 have Erectile Dysfunction because folks aren’t connecting with the Lord in any way? Even your doctor knows there is a connection between spirituality and body function and we know from The Bible that God expects us to look to him for leadership in our daily lives. So, isn’t it possible that ED is merely a side effect of our unwillingness to lean on God during even the most intimate moments?
As a guy; I can honestly say that, “Sex is more underrated than overrated,” By Far. It’s a known scientific fact that many relationships start through chemistry. Now, before anyone gets all bent out of shape and starts sending me hate mail because of this post just stop to think about it. Continue reading Marriage Or Relationship; The Importance Of Sex To This Man.
Right off the bat; Mr. Stephen R. Covey tells us in his book, “The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People,” that it’s never really a question of changing other people and their behaviors but more a question of changing ourselves. Is your career going well while your social or family life suffers? Is your marriage falling apart or perhaps your kids aren’t willing to listen to you? Perhaps; no matter what you do, nothing you do or say seems to help a loved one in a difficult situation? Continue reading We Will Start With The Inside Out Approach: Part 1: Paradigms And Principles: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People Book Chapter Summary.
Under this heading Stephen Covey explains to us that he had studied success material that had been published in the United States of America from 1776 forward. He tells us that he noticed in this material that up until about World War One the material taught success principles that were based on things like, integrity, humility, loyalty and patients. Prior to World War one; we are told by Mr. Covey that other things along those lines were emphasized, which would be considered traits of character rather than personality, as well. Continue reading The Personality and Character Ethics: Part 1: Paradigms And Principles: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People Book Chapter Summary.
The philosophy here is that the personality based teachings of the past fifty years, although useful and important to some extent, are only secondary and short term solutions that do not work over a long period of time. Thinking positive, knowing how to manipulate people into liking you or doing what you need them to do for you (or even each other) is certainly useful, “Yes.” However, when it comes to enjoying long lasting relationships it is who you are (your character) that will make for far greater Cinergy in a relationship between two people of quality integrity than any teaching based upon personality or social imagery could ever hope to achieve.
“So “what is a Paradigm,” you may ask? Under this heading we discover that it is a model or map. With regard to people Paradigms are internalized maps or models based on our own life experiences. Continue reading The Power of a Paradigm: Part 1: Paradigms And Principles: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People.
A paradigm shift takes place when your perception of a situation changes. For example; if a guitar instructor were to ask a student to reverse rolls and teach them the scale they’d been working on, as if the student were the one giving the lesson, this would encourage some students to become better learners. Continue reading The Power of a Paradigm Shift: Part 1: Paradigms And Principles: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People Book Chapter Summary.
Sometimes it takes a little courage in order to see a person or situation differently. This is because “we” need to be different. We need to learn to change our thinking in order to look at something in a new way.
Principles are natural universal laws that have turned up continually in civilizations throughout history. It doesn’t matter what religion a person is, or what culture they live in. These principles are natural laws (like fairness) that will break us if we continue to ignore them. Continue reading The Principle-Centered Paradigm: Part 1: Paradigms And Principles: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People Book Chapter Summary.
Under this header; Stephen Covey talks about how the Personality ethic being widely taught over the past fifty years is really nothing more than a get rich scheme, especially on an emotional level. He talks about how many folks who look for a quick fix to their problems and behaviors do not realize that it’s not going to work in the long term. He says it will not work in the long term because these remedies will not get to the real root of the problem. Continue reading Principles of Growth and Change: Part 1: Paradigms And Principles: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People Book Chapter Summary.
Here Stephen writes that our view of problems is the problem. He explains that this is because we are more or less seeking an external source of the resolution rather than sitting down and being brutally honest with ourselves. What’s being suggested here is that perhaps we already have within ourselves the solutions that we are seeking.
Under this heading Covey writes to us that in order to have the relationships we want in our lives we have to become “ourselves” what we seek in others. He tells us that this must come first if we are to expect others to respond to us in the ways we desire. For example; if we want to be trusted we must be worthy of trust. That makes sense, “Right?” Bottom line; become what you want to be treated as. The only way to do that is to work on yourself inside!
Covey writes that habits are what express our character or lack thereof. They are automatic portrayals of who we are. If we want to change our character we can do this through making the huge commitment required to change our habits. Yes folks! It’s true! Bad habits at any age can be broken. FYI: You really can teach an old dog new tricks, too.
Covey defines habits as the junction point between Skill, knowledge and desire. He writes that… Continue reading Habits Defined: Part 1: Paradigms And Principles: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People Book Chapter Summary.
Mr. Stephen R. Covey explains to us here; being independent is a good thing but it should never be one’s ultimate goal in life. This is because everything from the eco system on our planet, to society itself, is based upon functioning interdependently; in cooperation with others. Continue reading The Maturity Continuum: Part 1: Paradigms And Principles: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People Book Chapter Summary.
Under this heading the PPC Balance principle is introduced. The first P stands for the production of a result that is desired. PC stands for production capability or, in other words, “The asset that is producing the desired result.” We are told that most paradigms tend to focus on the desired result. The trouble with this however is that no attention is paid to ourselves (the producing asset) in this process of thinking. What is alluded to here is that, in order to get out of life the things we want, we need to work on the basic core principles within our character.
Mr. Covey shares with us in his book that there are three kinds of assets in the basic scheme of things. These assets are; human, financial and physical. How we take care of our physical assets, car, house tractor, etc., will directly impact our financial asset, money in our bank account. If you aren’t sure of what I mean just talk to someone who has driven a car over thirty-six thousand miles without ever changing the oil or filter! Continue reading Three Kinds of Assets: Part 1: Paradigms And Principles: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People Book Chapter Summary.
When it comes to organizations; focusing too much on the end result or product is highly destructive. This intense focus wouldn’t produce the desired results in the business world any more than doing so would in a marriage or friendship. Make everything about the bottom line and failure will often be (and generally is) the end result. There must be a balance between maintaining the equipment that produces the product, or making sure the staff of an establishment is treated the way the owner of the business desires the customer to be treated by his employees. It’s important to insure that the PPC Balance is maintained in organizations in order for the organization to be effective.
It is stated here that The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is written to be used more as a companion than a book. If one wanted to read it through first to get a feel for what’s there that’s cool. However, Mr. Covey suggests that we keep the book at hand for reference; making it easier to incorporate the habits found in his book into our daily lives. Continue reading How to Use This Book: Part 1: Paradigms And Principles: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People Book Chapter Summary.
Having graduated and worked at Sussex County Community College myself; I can certainly understand why hard working women taking classes want to keep focused on their studies and avoid the usual stress, plus other complications that dating men can often create. Even now, being single and working hard to grow my desktop publishing business, my own time is limited. So, “Yeah,” I get the lure that simply hooking up via websites, apps, and other methods might have for some college women.
