Welcome to the very first “Personal Growth Sundays” lesson. On Sundays, let’s take a break from thinking about business and think about you instead. What skills can you develop that will help you at work and home? In these lessons, I’ll present you with articles, videos, and other things that can help you help yourself.

Some questions we might think about here:

  • How can you lead people better?
  • How can you get people to say yes?
  • How can you be more creative?
  • How can you learn new skills?

And more.

Today, let’s think about how you can have better insights. (What’s an insight? Look in Today’s Vocabulary for a definition and explanation.)

Here’s an article that might help you. The title is “Chill, You’ll Have More Aha! Moments”.

What is an “Aha! moment”? In English, we say “Aha!” when we think of a good idea–like a solution to a problem. The article suggests that rather than working and working and working on a problem, that you should just relax. If you do, then you’ll think of  good solutions. What do you think? If you ignore a problem, will the solution come to you?
