Happy Tuesday!!!!
It's Week Fifteen of our Dare to BE Happy Challenge

Last week we focused on Empowerment through Boundaries - at Work!  My AHA was: I have to keep an eye on boundaries all the time in a kind way for myself and for those I am in relationship with to keep doing my work of purpose while having healthy boundaries.

This week we are focusing on Critical Thinking and Decision Making.

We will focus on: 
  • Why Do We Need To Be Critical Thinkers? 
  • What is a Critical Thinker?
  • How Do You Make Decisions Now?
  • We will look at a couple of models
  • Do I Use My Head or my Heart?????
  • Making Decisions as a Group

Henry Ford said, “Thinking is hard work, that is why so few people do it.”

**Judith found a great article that bridges the head to the heart when thinking critically about making decisions through creative problem solving.

WEEK Fifteen - Jul 8, 2014
April 1 through August 26, 2014
Amy Frost and Judith Pinkerton

Process for Dare To BE Happy Challenge:
  • Read weekly blog posted here on Tues a.m.  
  • Experience the topic circle during the week in Las Vegas at the Music 4 Life® Health Club.
  • If you can't attend the Critical Thinking and Decision Making Las Vegas circle, the telephone call "Tele-Circle" is weekly on Tuesdays 6-6:30pm PT (712) 432-1212  code 676-773-827.
  • If you missed the Tuesday Tele-Circle, go to this link to listen to this week's recording for Critical Thinking and Decision Making
  • Music Medicine: Many times critical thinking is clouded with unsettled feelings that distract from effect decision making. It’s important to validate and release those feelings for clearer thinking that leads to more creative problem solving decisions. Music 4 Life’s Stress Brake CD is successful in significantly reducing anxiety and frustrations, and building motivation for creative problem solving through this special Mood Sequence Formula including several music genres.  (purchase the CD by calling or visiting Music 4 Life®)

    THE PROBLEM: if this music does not do it for you, and if you are in Las Vegas, please see us at the Music 4 Life® office for a free 10-minute session to merge your mind/mood/body into the theta state with a re-boot of your system through forced meditation in the Music Medicine Cove.  This may help to clear your thinking for more effective decision making. Listen to the TEDxUNLV Talk "Music Powers Potential: Building Mental Fitness" to find out why. Download the Music Medicine Boot Camp to learn how to apply your music listening habits differently for self-empowerment. Re-organize your music into powerful playlists and Mood Sequence Formulas™ and cross-train to new music to support being an effective critical thinker and decision maker.
