Human beings are pack rats by nature. We are all attracted to collecting things, particularly bright, shiny objects. Believe it or not, some neurodevelopmental biology researchers think that the reason we are attracted to things that glitter and sparkle is actually a holdover from our Neanderthal roots.
Personal Growth The MOO factor is about the “margin of opportunity” that exists between where you are today and where you can be. It’s about the time you have left to accomplish your goals and fulfill your dreams. It’s your chance to win. You have short-term MOO of one day, one week, and one month, to longer-term MOO of months, years and a legacy. This is your time to be your best and maximize your potential. This period of time and what you accomplish in it is all about you and how you show up every day.

Wellness Approach There are sound scientific reasons why a cheerful attitude and positive outlook are most essential even in the face of challenges, traumatic stress and uncertainties. Joyfulness is more than 50 percent of wellness and should ideally be everyone’s default nature. There is no other alternative if the objective is robust health and wellness in all three dimensions: body, mind and spirit. Without cheer, there can be no holistic wellbeing or happiness, even if someone is a billionaire, even if he or she is the most cerebral person, or even if someone is the “best” in any field of human endeavor.
