Every year we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Albert Einstein on March 14.

Einstein has been a hero of mine since I was a kid. The reasons for that have changed over time. Early on, I just loved his unruly hair, how both rebellious and distinguished he looked at the same time. Also, he was considered a true genius for his discoveries, like E= MC squared — whatever that meant. 

As I grew older, I was drawn to the fact that not only was he a mathematical genius, Einstein could see things differently than the people around him, except perhaps his wife, Mileva Maric, who was a mathematician and genius in her own right.

Currently, I appreciate Einstein as a kind man,  a theoretical physicist, humanitarian, and teacher. He was passionately curious about seeking the truth and how the mind worked. Definitely a hero for all of us. 

I love the concept of genius – of excellence, the magical quality of seeing more. Still, Einstein himself saw it like this:

"Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid." 

My work is about finding and growing your genius. I help people embody their highest self or sense of who they are. Coaching and counseling helps identify and take ownership of unique strengths. Neuroscience tools are designed to create more ability to achieve life goals by enhancing focus and information processing, reducing anxiety and stress and creating clarity of thought. 

The remainder of this month we will offer five opportunities to help you cultivate your genius:

1. Consider OEFF’S Auction of 12 Sessions with the IM

One of my favorite not-for-profits is the One Earth Film Festival and it's holding an auction through March 11. To help them raise money, I donated 10, one-to-one sessions with the Interactive Metronome® (IM) plus pre-and post-training assessments to chart progress, for a total of 12 sessions.

The Interactive Metronome helps improve mental processing speed, focus, concentration, memory, speech fluency, and motor coordination. This tool was originally designed for musicians but later found helpful others including for executive peak performance, attention disorders, concussions, Parkinson’s, depression and mid-life brain brightening. 

The Notre Dame football team even uses the Interactive Metronome to gain an extra edge in athletic focus and mental processing.

Go here to make your bid. You might be able to get this program for half price or less from our gift. 

2. Attend Our Open House with Complimentary Screening

On Friday, March 23, we will have an Open House from 12  to 5 p.m., offering free 20-minute consultations to answer questions you have about our services. This includes a 3-minute screening with the Interactive Metronome®. Sign up is all filled. If we can help you with a question or more information, please send us a note.

3. Join Our Complimentary Brain Scan Drawing

As a contribution to brain health and growing your genius, we offer a complimentary brain scan with comprehensive interpretation every year near Einstein's Birthday. 

If you'd like to get in on this drawing, fill out your contact and verification information and tell us why you would like a Brain Scan by filling out the form on this linked page. We hope to help you grow your genius during this heady month.

4. Watch for Our Social Media Posts

Look for posts about gravitational waves and worm holes on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn during the week of Einstein's Birthday, beginning Monday, March 12. We will show artists' interpretations of revolutionary Einstein's ideas.

5. Embrace the Miracle

Here is an activity you can do anytime and anywhere. It is shifting how you think to embrace the best of what is there. To quote Einstein:

"There are two ways to live your life: One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." 

Hope you see the miracles and our offerings during Einstein's birthday and the rest of March will help grow your own genius.
