 I wrote a blog about my beliefs and  skills, 

Purpose

I want  to create a  state of flow in others.

Behind Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s theory is that people are much happier when they enter a state of “flow”. This happens when you do something that completely captures your attention. A lot of people would call this “being in the zone,” in other words: full absorption in something and complete happiness while you’re doing it.

Here’s how Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi described the state of flow: “being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away.  Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you’re using your skills to the utmost.”

I hope every company in the world and every entrepreneur will have Dadaist  group of people seeking completely different ways of doing things. The more you want to help others, the greater the influence you will have. 

The more people use an idea, the more they will believe in it. An idea has to be expressed in different ways for people to understand it as fully as possible, and in their individual way. You need to build out your idea with analysis,

IdeasNo idea is completely original. Most are improvements on an existing body of thought. All the most successful idea entrepreneurs stand on the shoulders of giants, and usually say so. In fact, it’s important you don’t try to own your idea. When you give as much of it away as you can, people will be more — not less — likely to credit you.I was influenced by a book Breaking Out: How to Build Influence in a World of Competing Ideas  and the company Idea PlatformsRetirementThere is no retirement. We are all mortals. But we cannot wait for biological death to come doing nothing. In a state of flow, we ignore when the Creator will stop giving us days as a gift, one at a time.An exampleCute Platform Shoes Ideas For 2017 That Will Blow Your Mind

Retirement

We are all mortals, but this discovery becomes acute after the age of  fifty. Each day is a gift from God. God is under no obligation to give another day. We should treasure this gift and ask how I can make this day more Holly.

Dadaism

The artist is universal, inspiring across any borders. It seeds new thoughts. The word Art and its unique way to communicate sentiments, does not exist in business.

Flow or Happiness

"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”  Aristotle

In this state they are completely absorbed in an activity, especially an activity which involves their creative ability.

 The impossibility of being objective

 - living positively is a matter of choice, not circumstance.

 - It is not the events of out life that shape us, but the meaning  we assign to these events

Breakthrough success is mystical

The Chabad Rebbe said that many individuals cannot commit to a cause based only on systematic thought and reasoned conclusions. The trend has been, instead, to relate to symbols that are less abstract, and more tangible and emotional..

My writer style

I  do NOT  write for Public Relations. I do not write for Google search visibility. I write for people and I care about their sentiments.  We buy to satisfy a human need, a passion, a dream, something that make our life easier and more pleasant

Readability

If people don't read what I write then the whole effort is in vain. My writing must flow, using words anybody can understand. I am respectful of my clients, but I defend my right to be me.

Super-Entrepreneurs

Silicon Valley entrepreneurship consist mostly in adding features to existing products and services. This is a sure passport to insignificance. We need entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Zuckerberg, the Google founders. We need an increase supply of entrepreneurs who start from scratch, doing everything upside down, like the dadaists.

The lottery obsession

I watch a program on HGTV about wining the lottery and buying  a home . A home that changes people lives. The host has a fascinating personality, He makes people from the most remote places in USA feel as if they are from Boston or Florida or LA. He is David Bromstad

He asks every new lottery winners what they want. Almost all say they want a big kitchen, an open concept, a pool, and  a man cave. Most want to be next to the water, any water, sea, lake or river Then they give a price range. David  extracts an accurate personality of what people really want.to feel they create a home, and not just a house

I watch the same episode over and over, I am mortal and know in this stage in life, my only chance of having a new one story home if to receive out the blue a windfall of  money.

I buy lottery tickets almost every day. 

Can I win the lottery?

"More than a third of Americans believe winning the lottery is the only way they will ever retire comfortably. But the odds of winning either the Powerball or Mega Millions are roughly 1 in 292.2 million and 1 in 302.5 million, respectively."

In California,  since 1992, only nine people won the Powerball jackpot. Nine in 29 years.

"Just how likely is it that you'll hit it big in the lottery? Well, the odds are much worse than the probability of your death as a result of one of these:

Plane crash: 11 million to oneCar accident: 106 to oneFalling out of bed: 2 million to oneFlesh-eating bacteria: 1 million to oneLightning strike: 1.2 million to oneDog mauling: 118,776 to oneSnakebite: 50 million to oneShark attack: 3.75 million to oneAll lotteries produced 6,100 millionaires, meaning they won 1,000,0000 dollars, not the astronomical hundreds of millions,

On August 20, 2021, this is a Powerball summaryMatching NumbersWinning TicketsPrize Amounts5 + Powerball0$274,000,00050$414,8664 + Powerball1$52,670465$4053 + Powerball127$21533,800$82 + Powerball3,054$91 + Powerball24,494$5Powerball61,263$4Total Winning Tickets92,804

No one won 274 millions No one won half a million. Just one person in 23 states won 50,000. All others, won peanuts.

Wining in Silicon ValleyI spent a decade on the Valley. Around me many friends were making millions of dollars. I made zilch, zero. I wanted to conserve my job in Sun Microsystems. I had an employee mentality.I should have had an owner mentality"-Owners have an owner’s mentality. They aren’t merely loyal and committed to the vision and the team, but they own the vision. The organization’s vision is not just the vision of the more senior leaders; it’s their vision too. The organization is like her two-year-old child"How to seeThe writer is a foreign correspondent in her own land, filing dispatches about the sacred and the profane—and revealing, often subtly, the porous border between the two. The mark of a great journalist is the capacity to see what should be evident to everyone but which somehow isn’t.Stop what you do. Ask yourself where will you be in ten years if  you continue to be an employeeThe majority of people under fifty want to change a job, but they do nothing. The job gives them an identity and they are afraid to loose it.Carl Jung said "“Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakes“.Rabbi Nachman is a famous teacher who passed away in 1810, over 200 years ago.Someone once asked Rebbe Nachman, “What is the idea of free will?” “Very simple,” Rebbe Nachman replied. “If you want, you do it. If you don’t want, you don’t do it.”It is the ability to choose to do whatever you wish to do, whenever you wish to do so, in any kind of situation. Knowing that you have this power, you can take any idea or suggestion that you hear and apply it for your benefit. As Reb Noson (the disciple of Rabbi Nachman) explains, free will is the most amazing power in the entire world.What I wantI want to create a new breed of  super-entrepreneurs. The ones who create Google, Facebook, Amazon, Tesla Toyota, Baidu  I can only stimulate others. The ideas come from them, not me.I want to explain it clearly in another web site. I am not doing this to gain a million dollars. But if I do, this million has a much higher probability than winning the lottery. I am open to listen to others who may want to join meBeing mortal, every day is a gift from God.  Life is not past. Life is no future. Life is today
