10 Impressive Interstellar Quotes to Launch Your 2015

Need inspiration for setting and reaching your 2015 resolutions? Look to the stars…or the movie screen and follow the wise advice of Interstellar through quotes from its main characters.

From demonstech.com

    “Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” —Dylan Thomas, as quoted by Professor Brand

      Carry these words as your mantra when setting short-term goals for the new year. Go ahead and RAGE to complete a daily goal. Let the dying of the light be sunset and begin each day anew ready to burn through daylight toward completion of the tasks at hand.

      “I have an itch, heading back to base.”—Cooper

        Intuition is your inner-speak!  Listen to it.  How many times have you castigated yourself for not paying attention to a gut feeling? Be brave by following your instincts. If your actions are causing doubt, then STOP to re-evaluate. Scratch that itch because apparently, your choices are off the mark. Don’t worry about being dubbed indecisive; it’s okay to double check the direction of your goals to get back on the correct path.

        “It’s not possible.”—Case
        “No, it’s necessary.” —Cooper

          Own your choices as a necessary means to accomplish a goal. How you approach a problem is how you will find a solution. The key to finding an answer is to never doubt its existence. KNOW that it is within yourself to recognize it and your expectations will be met for completion.

          “Love is the one thing that transcends time and space.”  Brand

            Fall in LOVE with your new year’s resolutions. Don’t list the same goals from years past. They need to be repackaged into missives that reflect what you’re trying to truly achieve. For example, if you’re seeking to lose weight because you hate your body, instead choose to lose weight because you LOVE your body. That body is uniquely yours and it’s one of a kind…be loving and take care of it!

            “So how do you plan on saving the world?”—Cooper
            “We’re not meant to save the world, we’re meant to leave it.”—Brand

              Time to throw out losing causes. One of the reasons your past goals may have never been met is because they weren’t meant to be completed! TAKE stock of what makes you happy and fulfilled rather than trying to fulfill someone else’s ideals. Be brave enough to take care of yourself and that empowerment will translate into achievement.

               “Murphy’s Law doesn’t meant that something bad will happen. It means that whatever can happen, will happen.”—Cooper

                Learn to ride the roller coaster of unexpected moments. Setbacks happen, and because we allow our perfectionism to rear its ugly head, those moments can derail our progress. Instead, allow your thoughts to move toward readjustment and new pathways. A positive end result can come in spite of detours. USE these growth moments to strengthen your resolve.

                “We used to look up at the sky and wonder at our place in the stars, now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt.”—Cooper

                interstellarkids

                  Remember to DREAM big. Stretching the boundaries of what you think you can achieve may just give you the perspective necessary for success. If you’ve thrown out losing causes as recommended earlier, it’s time to replace them with better goals and possibly bigger goals. Rather than the promise of walking 10 miles per week, think of it as training for a half marathon and eventually, build toward something more. Why not you?

                  “Maybe we’ve spent too long trying to figure this out with theory.”—Brand

                    Preparation is necessary for success but don’t SPEND all your time planning and not executing. One of the reasons magazines highlight dieting on their monthly covers is because they know their readers are procrastinators. Rather than hoping for the “perfect” method, start trying something!! Action breeds action and eventually, action breeds success.

                    “We’re still pioneers, we’ve barely begun. Our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, cause our destiny lies above us.”—Cooper

                    interstellarduo2

                      Why stop with your first success? Let one achievement roll into another. The lessons you learn from failure and success can be the motivation you need to attack the next resolution on your list. BE proactive and try not to settle for half a goal reached or half a list completed. Follow the destiny you mapped out for yourself.

                      “I’m not going to make it.”—Brand.
                      “Yes, you are.  Yes, you are.”—Cooper

                      interstellarduo

                        Enlist support. No person is an island…happily. To make your journey easier, turn to your friends and family when the task seems insurmountable. If you’ve surrounded yourself with good people, they’ll remind you of your goals. If saboteurs call themselves your friends and urge you to stray from your path, add another resolution to the list: GET new friends!

                        8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                        8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                        We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                        On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                        Advertising

                        Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                        1. Smart Door Locks

                        A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                        2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                        Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                        3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                        If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                        4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                        These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                        5. Nest Thermostat

                        This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                        6. Smart Lighting

                        Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                        7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                        Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                        8. Canary

                        This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
