Of the many topics we covered, we focused on how his leadership style evolved, and how it has helped build and shape his law firm, Nadrich and Cohen.

How to Make New Friends

By Michael Haynes | September 21, 2018

Learn to read body language. You’ll have a better idea of what someone is really telling you… When someone smiles, look at his/her face—real smiles crinkle the eyes. A tilted head and wide-open eyes suggest a willingness to listen. Someone who is biting his lips may feel he is being criticized. People cross their legs when they feel defensive and cross their arms when they want to be convinced. Leaning back shows friendliness—or feeling in control. Helpful when meeting someone new: Establish rapport by mirroring some of his signals, such as leaning forward or smiling. Or use the same body positions.

Useful Lessons From the Wisdom In Your Dreams

By Michael Haynes | September 19, 2018

Although dreams often seem nonsensical, the close examination can yield self-knowledge and practical guidance for everyday living. Interpreting dreams is usually a challenge. They so often deal with thorny issues that we avoid thinking about when we’re awake. And most dream-analysis systems impose rigid symbolism and meanings that don’t fit everyone. The dream-analysis method I use involves freely exploring a dream with others but accepting only the insights that strike a personal chord. My dreamwork programs normally contain eight to 10 people, but the system also works with just two or three Present The Dream To allow for wide-ranging speculation, the dreamer first tells the “straight story.’’ He/she should write…

Dr. Tom Crook’s Six-Step Program to Keep Your Mind Very, Very, Very, Sharp!

By Michael Haynes | September 17, 2018

The decline in our ability to quickly recall names, dates and other memorized facts is known as Age-Associated Memory Impairment (AAMI). It is due to chemical changes in die brain cells as well as a general shrinkage of brain mass—a phenomenon that occurs in everybody, starting at about age 40. That’s the bad news. The good news is that, unlike Alzheimer’s Disease (which strikes a relatively small percentage of people and is largely untreatable in its later stages), AAMI can be minimized and/or delayed indefinitely. How? Through a mix of mental and physical exercises combined with daily supplements of a remarkable compound called phosphatidylserine—more commonly referred to as PS. What…

Age-Proof Your Brain

By Michael Haynes | September 14, 2018

Doctors used to think that brain development occurred only during youth and that as we age, our brain cells (neurons) inevitably die off. But recent research confirms that humans can add new neurons throughout life. This means we can continue learning new ideas and mastering new skills. Each neuron has branch-like appendages called dendrites that extend in different directions. Whenever die brain is stimulated by an experience—even in old age—new dendrites form. Neurons communicate with each other via electrochemical impulses sent through dendrites. More dendrites mean greater brain power. As we age, some dendrites naturally wither and die. The more we have left, the better our cognitive abilities remain. Key:…
