Why I love Montessori

Helen Keller Said...I believe that every child has hidden away somewhere in his noble capacities which maybe quickened developed if we go about it in the right way,but we shall never properly develop the higher nature ofour little ones while we continue to fi ll their minds withthe so-called basics. Mathematics will never make themloving, nor will accurate knowledge of the size and shapeof the world help them appreciate its beauties. Let us leadthem during the first years to find their greatest pleasurein nature. Let them run in the fields, learn about animals,and observe real things. Children will educate themselvesunder the right conditions. They require guidance andsympathy far more than instruction......Maria Montessori delievered the concepts

Too Cute

This is my "depressed stance." When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this.

HCG

A very dear friend of mine know in the community as "shola" figured out this amazing formula (you're so smart!) to tell when the HCG would be totally gone.I always look through the forum to find it each cycle, so Im going to include it here - it's very helpfulbased on initial dose = 10000 IUthen the level of HCG after t hours is approximately2000 * 2 ^ ( -t / 33 )Ok, so the ^ symbol means "to the power of"... (eg 2 ^ 3 = 2*2*2=8)

Motivation

Set a major goal, but follow a path. The path has mini goals that go in many directions. When you learn to succeed at mini goals, you will be motivated to challenge grand goals.Finish what you start. A half finished project is of no use to anyone. Quitting is a habit. Develop the habit of finishing self-motivated projects.Socialize with others of similar interest. Mutual support is motivating. We will develop the attitudes of our five best friends. If they are losers, we will be a loser. If they are winners, we will be a winner. To be a cowboy we must associate with cowboys.Learn how to learn. Dependency on others for knowledge supports the habit of procrastination. Man has the ability to learn without instructors. In fact, when we learn the art of self-education we will find, if not create, opportunity to find success beyond our wildest dreams.Increase knowledge of subjects that inspires. The more we know about a subject, the more we want to learn about it. A self-propelled upward spiral develops.Take risk. Failure and bouncing back are elements of motivation. Failure is a learning tool. No one has ever succeeded at anything worthwhile without a string of failures.
