Septemics, A Book on the Analysis, Prediction & Management of Human Affairs, is a must-read for personal improvement

What the book is about:

In SEPTEMICS, Marshall explores how better understanding human conduct can make you a more successful person, including:

  • -How understanding specific areas of human activity, such as motivation, identity, thought, ability and choice, can improve your life
  • -How using Septemics can improve your relationships, communications and work
  • -How Septemics can have a positive impact on nearly every aspect of human affairs
  • -The 7 different levels of each scale, and how to advance to the next level
  • -How this book can aid parents, counselors, spouses, employers, teachers and pastors

Inspiration for the book:

Because individuals, as well as groups, behave in predictable patterns (which are specified in this book), SEPTEMICS is able to provide a new way of looking at human interactions, and can help readers achieve their goals faster and easier. The author has laid it out in 35 different scales to help readers understand it in a structured way.

Author advice:

While it's tempting to jump to a specific scale (there are 35 scales covering different situations), it's best to read it from the first page to the last. This is because most situations in life are intertwined. For example, a person may start an entrepreneurial venture but different people may have different reasons for doing so. Some may do it for recognition, or acceptance, while others may do it for financial benefit. By identifying and understanding your own motivation, those around you, and the communication in between, this could potentially improve your communication, relations and work all at the same time.

About the author:

Jim Marshall, B.S., is a polymathic scholar whose areas of expertise include psychology, philosophy, theology, parapsychology, science, engineering, mathematics, law, literature, history, metaphysics, military science, political science, physical culture and music.

Book information:

Sample chapters are available at the author's website septemics.com. To purchase the book, you can choose between Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!

Presents

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
