THE SCIENCE ISN’T SETTLED, BUT WHY TAKE CHANCES?  Drinking champagne every day ‘could help prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s.’

Throwback  Thursday III (from 20 December 2012): Win More With Less

One thing that has really stood out for me this year is how much people are getting “lost in the unnecessary”. Established companies try to cover as many bases as they can out of fear of getting overtaken by smaller businesses that claim to be more “agile”. More data means thicker and more complex reports that are less inspiring to read. People are sharing more online but not in proportion to the amount of new ideas we should be creating.

Steve Jobs once said that “deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do”. He would ask his top 100 people for 10 things they needed to do and then once the list was made tell them they could only do 3.

A.G. Lafley once told me “the important thing about a change programme is knowing what not to change”. Deciding what to eliminate not only helps you focus on what’s important, it also forces you to create a better product. Jeff Bezos has done it by working to “eliminate all the gatekeepers” that has been a barrier between consumers and suppliers.

Focusing on the important, not the urgent, will ensure that you do things right. And if you fail, you’ll be able to fix it faster too.

The revelation comes as both Ohrs remain under intense scrutiny for their ties to Fusion GPS and British ex-spy Christopher Steele, the author of the anti-Trump dossier that was used to obtain warrants to wiretap a member of President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Jeremy Banner was driving his Model 3 on a divided four-lane highway in Palm Beach County, Florida. As the car approached a driveway, a semi truck pulled out in front of the car, making a left-hand turn from the driveway to the opposite travel lanes.

Halima Aden knew she would make history as the first Muslim model to grace the pages of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition wearing a hijab and burkini, but she didn’t think she would change lives.
“I was hoping it would be perceived well but I’ve just been blown away,” the model told AAP.
“When you hear young girls telling you you’ve changed their entire life and they’re going out swimming, trying out these things they thought weren’t for them, I can’t help but feel really proud.”
“You can take your sexual oppression to the beach!” doesn’t seem like a very positive messages
