It’s far too easy to get “bogged down” with things and distracted when you have your own business. There is also the tendency, especially with online business things, to assume that something “doesn’t work”. Instead of just getting on with the job and finding out by taking action, the assumption is enough to stop the person from doing what is necessary.
It’s what you do when nobody is looking that matters. You Continue reading
It doesn’t matter what your business or job, if you don’t commit to doing something you love, you’re in danger of getting into the “half hearted” zone. This is more dangerous when you have your own business, but could also mean losing a job.
The first thing you need to look at is your own desire to do the job at hand. If there is something in the business that you see as lucrative and that is the ONLY reason you want to do it, there is the possibility (or worse) that you can enter into it half heartedly. So, ask yourself if it is something that Continue reading
I was browsing through one site looking for ideas for a blog post. I came across a student who was reaching the end of his studies and who had just one year left making it clear that “he was scared of the future”. WHY?
Because of the reaction he was getting to his work! Outside influences were the issues that were making him think he wasn’t good enough. What could he do to make this change?
I believe there are Continue reading
Practice is something we all need to get to grips with in our everyday business and life. Learning the skills we use is one thing, but practice is how we perfect them. Many will “shy away” from practice because it may remind you of tasks that were seen as chores when a child. This would be more relevant for someone who learned music as an example, but the practice was something “to be avoided” because it’s “boring”. After all, we just want to play that tune, so why do I need to do scales?
Too many times, we as humans look to get to the gratifying point of what we’re doing, but forget that Continue reading
Being a blogger, one thing you should always strive for is building an active community of readers and subscribers on your blog. When you have great interaction, this does two things that improve your SEO without having to work to do it. You have more interaction in the form of comments and also visitors stay longer and this improves the dreaded “bounce rate”.
Here are 5 great ways to build that active community and take Continue reading
I will be talking about learning about your niche and then going out and crushing it!
“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” ~ Einstein
This statement can be based on so many things in life, ranging from sport to business. The best teams mostly win the most prizes, but this doesn’t mean that the team is full of the very best players. There is more to a team than just being the best individual. This, of course, doesn’t mean that the best teams cannot contain the best player of all. That could be YOU in your chosen field as long as Continue reading
Einstein’s own thoughts on knowledge can be based on his quote:
“Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”
Not sure if I agree 100%, but experience leads to the vast majority of knowledge. In my own experience, I have found this to be true to a very high Continue reading
Part 8 of the series based on the 10 main principles of Albert Einstein. In this post I will discuss repetition and why it can be both good and bad. Good is great, but bad is something to beware of and so easy a trap to fall into.
Einstein had a philosophy around this and thought it as:
“Insanity – doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Of course, this is based around the “bad” side of repetition and this should be avoided. Of course, it’s a very easy trap to get caught in and can lead to frustration and Continue reading
