Personal Development and Change

Posted in Knowledge, tags: lifetame, personal development, change, knowledge

Personal development is strongly tied to change. For example, if we want to gain a certain skill we will need time to study and practice, but time is limited to 24 hours a day.

Understanding how people perceive stress is both fascinating and intriguing. Some people will go with the flow and see what happens, others won't be able to stop worrying and some will just freeze and stop doing anything. Of course, this behavior depends on the situation, each person’s perception and the way they are used to managing stress.

Life presents us with challenges on a daily basis. Whether it's school, work or relationships we always have something to overcome. These challenges generate worries or fear so, in response to this, we adapted by developing what is commonly referred to as a stress response.

Welcome to LifeTAME

Posted in LifeTAME, tags: lifetame, introduction

Ever since I can remember I have been passionate about self-help and personal development so I read a lot of books about these two subjects. Over the years, as my critical thinking developed, I learned to differentiate between magical solutions and practical ones and began thinking I should make something useful to help myself and others. After researching the field and most of the alternative websites out there I came out with the concepts of several personal development software application that, I hope, will prove practical and easy to use. I put it all on paper, and began the long, long road of design and development and a few months later LifeTAME as born. Of course, as I worked in developing the first web site I thought about some really awesome names for every application I wanted to make but, unfortunatelly, all of them were already taken. After a few hundred tries I finally found a domain name that wasn't taken and here we are.
