... to save
and also that younger people usual have lower earnings power
and incomes. I'm trying to make the point that to whatever
extent you can follow this start-early concept it will pay
off handsomely by the time you reach retirement. Albert Einstein wrote that he believed the most marvelous

History of Beading by Tracy Stillman
... While to us it sounds rather ghoulish, it is believed early man wore animal bones in the hope that the souls of the animals would protect them from evil. Any hollow bone that could be threaded with vine or fiber was used and once man developed tools capable of creating a hole in a particular item, almost anything could be turned into a bead. Native tribes often used seeds or plant pods, such as nut shells, while others learned to make clay beads and decorated them with crude paints.
Sixties: The Decade of Rebellion by Phil Edwards
... This innovation led to the development of the hand-held pocket calculator by Texas Instruments, though calculators did not come into general use until the early seventies. But the world didn’t understand how much science and technology was really going to change their lives – until Neil Armstrong spoke to the world from the surface of the Moon in 1969.

Building Catapults Required Engineering Know How by Garben Catapult
... Although it wasn’t easy to fill an order on site, much like the modern day Army Corp of Engineers, their early counterparts understood what was necessary to go about building catapults.

With a wealth of knowledge stored in their heads – rather than in calculators – they set about putting these machines together onsite, or in the case of the more mobile ...
Does Your Financial Plan Belong in a Cartoon? by Neal Frankle
... (As unappealing as working forever may sound, add this to your reasons not to follow that plan: According to Robert Nestor, principal of retiree services with Vanguard Group, about half of recent retirees left the workforce early because of poor health, buyouts or layoffs. Even if you want to or need to, you may not be able to continue working.) This delusion is a little like the moment when Wile E. hangs in mid-air before plummeting to the bottom of a ravine.

... prevent a 3 hour attempt to create sanity (and sanitation). The 10 minutes it takes to tidy your desk will one day prevent a frantic search for that overdue bill that you're now paying a late fee on. The 5 minutes it takes to go to bed will prevent you from dragging through the next day feeling like death warmed over. Ideally, you can flip the switch and change associations of pain into those of pleasure and make the clean kitchen, and the tidy desk, and the early bedtime sources of pride.
Explode Your World With Possibilities by Saleem Rana
... We have been brought up to believe that we are not that bright. And this belief is a historical legacy, because high intelligence has never been very popular. A highly intelligent population is not the ideal of religious and political forces, and since the beginning of recorded history, human intelligence has been suppressed. Today, with our tremendous explosion of knowledge, we are finding it increasingly necessary to open our minds to our mental potential.

... It is therefore obvious that I chose to do more, because of a compelling need I had, to influence changes I believed would boost workplace productivity. Going by the above, it might not be a bad idea to study each of your employees to determine what primary motives they have for working in your company. Their willingness to take the initiative in solving problems; to develop futuristic solutions or to go the extra mile on the job when necessary, for the company to succeed, will be useful ...
