Thank Your Busy Body

Full lives and lack of focus can be the culprits that allow us to take for granted all of the amazing things our body does for us.  Here are some of the statistics:

  • You produce roughly 2.5 million new red blood cells each second.
  • The average reader’s brain processes about 300 words per minute.
  • Your heart beats roughly 100,000 times per day.
  • The human eye can differentiate approximately 10 million colors.
  • Your lungs can take in more than 3000 gallons of air daily.
  • Your thighbone can support 30 times your body weight.
  • You use as many as 200 muscles to take a single step.
  • The human body is estimated to have 60,000 miles of blood vessels.
  • Every day an adult body produces 300 billion new cells.

Are you Clever or Wise?

“You can tell whether a man is clever by his answers. You can tell whether a man is wise by his questions.”

Sometimes asking the right question is the answer.  I have found that really good questions will elicit really good answers.  Good questions make for good conversation and sometimes a well crafted question can be life changing.  Take some time to answer the following questions yourself and then carve out some time to learn.  As Lou Holtz said, “I never learn anything talking.  I only learn things when I ask questions.

Have fun with this!
