Show Idea

OK, gang. I need your opinions to help me put together a show concept.

When you watch TV, would you rather watch a scripted show, a reality show, or a documentary?

What do you like/dislike about documentaries?

What network or station do you turn to for educational shows?

Of the many documentary types, would you rather watch:
Unsolved mysteries
Mechanical or Do-It-Yourself
...and why?

What do you think would make a documentary more fun and exciting and feel less like school and more like entertainment?

Please feel free to elaborate!!

Thanks so much for your thoughts!! Please get your friends and family involved if possible so we can get as many perspectives as possible on this topic!

There are a few movies to be released this weekend that promise a big box office draw for Hollywood. The first is the much publicized and anticipated rendition of Dan Brown's book "
The DaVinci Code" (very cool link). If you have read the book and liked all the riddles, ambigrams, and mental puzzles in there, you may be interested in my new line of shirts - InvertEgo lifestyle wear (check out the new website for more info...) Also, we just saw a pre-release screening of "Over The Hedge". This is hands down the funniest movie I have seen this year. I can't recommend this movie enough for kids AND adults. Let me know what you think!

Feeling Alive

The art of Being Present in the moment is one of the most rewarding yet illusive states of being. How often do you check in with yourself to see if you're really "here" or if you're lost in thought, worry, anticipation, or regret? One of the key elements taught to elite competitive athletes for peak performance is staying present on the razor's edge of the moment. There is a fascinating performance psychology book called "The Inner Game Of Tennis" by Timothy Gallway that states there are two parts of yourself working at all times. The CHATTER in your head is called SELF 1. This is the voice of judgment (of self and others), worry and doubt. If you know anyone who can't seem to shut their brain off, they can't shut off their SELF 1. The other self operating is the DO-ER - that part of your self that acts - aka: SELF 2. The state of optimum focus and performance (some call it "being in the zone") is when the SELF 1 is silenced and SELF 2 is allowed to operate unhindered by the egoic SELF 1. There are many ways people attempt to shut off the chatter in the mind. This is the main goal of Meditation. Thrill seekers feel more alive after a stunt because the mind naturally shuts off the SELF 1 in dangerous situations so the SELF 2 can deal with the danger efficiently. Your best self in any situation is where your mind is quiet and relaxed and your focus is not fragmented by mental chatter. This is the state of OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE.

So how do you get in the zone?
What do you do that requires optimum performance of yourself?
What threatens your focus?
How can you get out of your head and into the NOW?

I promise if you get into the practice of being present more often, you will see a dramatic positive shift in your effectiveness in EVERYTHING you do in life. Keep us posted!
