Sconce lights have been around for hundreds of years. Some people think that sconces began in the 1600s (medieval times). Over the years, they have went from torch and candle lighting, to modern electrical lighting. Modern technology has created countless design choices. However, their benefits are universal.

When you buy the rights to do exactly the same thing someone else did online to get rich, do you really think he sells the rights while he is still making the most possible money with his system? Or do you think he packages it to sell after the initial selling frenzy is over?

If the problem you have been thinking about lately, perhaps because you’ve made some resolution to do something about it, were an easy problem, you would have already done something about it and solved it.

If this is true of us, and if Edison really did not feel anything similar when trying to make the first work, we can see that there is actually a greater difficulty with us than there is with him. That he would have thought of himself as a bad person for not having made a successful invention is highly unlikely. That we might think we are significantly defective for quitting again is very much likely.

The amount of electricity wasted each day by the average family is dependent on the amount of devices they leave plugged in. If your family is a “tech family”, you may be surprised at how much of your electric is wasted powering devices that may not be used often, are on stand by most of the day, or drawing power when turned off. Televisions are notorious for drawing power while they are turned off. The only way to stop this is to unplug them.

Pull your window curtain – use natural light as much as possible! If you are doing new construction,build to take advantage of natural light with the orientation of your windows and use of reflective surfaces to catch and multiply that natural light. Even with existing windows, let as much light in as possible, and do what you can to reflect it back around the room.

Trial and error means that you might, like Edison, end up failing many times before you reach success. Once you have success though, it makes your journey worth it. And don’t worry if someone seems to be moving along the path a little faster than you. Some people might seem not run into as many “errors” as other people or they might just be failing faster than you. In other words they are making more mistakes in a shorter period of time.

Improving yourself is about more than your own viewpoint. Self-development is about improving your world from the inside out. As you improve yourself, you will make the world a better place for you and those around you. If you turn back when the going gets hard, you are turning your back on that which can help you and your loved ones.
