If you’re a Bostonian, you likely celebrate (and groan) at the sight of a calendar when Evacuation Day, Patriots’ Day and Bunker Hill Day come into view. The day off from work, an extended weekend or vacation and even more competition for that sneaky parking spot at the end of your street.
Well, prepare yourself, stock the fridge and get yourself some traffic cones because Independence Day is on the way! Keep reading to see some of my favorite ways to celebrate the 4th of July!
What to do: Navy Week and OpSail ships visiting Boston
Sweet, sweet Internet. How I’ve missed you. We’re here at our new house and we are LOVING IT. Last Thursday night I hit a point where, upon looking around my house and seeing just what we were up against – the boxes stacked so high I couldn’t see over them, the piles of garbage bags, the stacks of, like, shit – I wondered why the hell we’d ever considered moving. There was so much work ahead of us and all I wanted to do was curl up in a ball and forget about everything.
But we’re five days into our new house and we already feel at home. We’re not fully unpacked and there’s still a lot to do but it just feels like home.More Link
Stop the madness! I wanted to share some things that I am sick and tired of hearing about both online and offline.
1. I am really getting tired of all the Progressive and Geico commercials to the point that I want to bitch slap FLO that annoying spokesperson for Progressive. Because of your annoying commercials I am not only not going to switch insurance I want to pay more to keep annoying commercials like yours off the air !
2. I don’t give a rat’s ass about Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton. Ms. Hilton spent more money on Halloween costumes than 90% of Americans make in one year and how the hell does Ms. Lohan get to get set all over the world ? I mean isn’t she broke by now? Are people so devoid of having life that they care about these air heads?More Link
I have to share this with you because it is perhaps the best objection I have ever gotten! I only edited a couple things to hide identities but you NEED to see this because once you can let go and laugh at stuff like this, you will have reached a great place in your life… remember, Bill Gates was treated the same way early in his endeavors.
By the way this is from a very successful person who has made his share of money in life – DO NOT let people steal your dreams!
Ask yourself one questions” If this is such a great deal, why don’t they just tell people what they are really doing?”
Why hide the truth that it is just a money swap, from the bottom to the top, with a little payout and when people drop out of the thing, they never get a refund?”
For the past couple months I have been studying and implementing various “rituals” in my daily routine in order to accomplish more work, improve the quality of my work, and to improve my physical and emotional states. However, I am seriously challenged because I actually never really get a true “daily routine”.
For two weeks every month I am out on a boat working with a schedule of 6 hours on watch and 6 hours off watch, continuously for two weeks. This means I have two mornings and two nights every 24 hours. So the most sleep I am going to get at any one time is around 4 hours.
Now take into consideration we may be running offshore in high seas which means the boat is rolling around – imagine trying to sleep on a mechanical bull! And to top it off, the noise from the engines running or turning off an on can wake you any time.More Link
Without a doubt the one element in that separates the truly successful from everyone else is their habits! Ask yourself a question… does everything I do in any given day create positive results? More importantly, if you break down all the activities in a day, what do those activities result in?
I want to introduce you to a system that will help you rate your daily activities and see if your habits are helping or hurting you! This is a formula that the select few, top earners have mastered and you need to learn.
Completely Useless Activities.
These are daily activities that not only earn you $0, but will actually cost you money. Entrepreneurs in any industry, not just Internet and Network Marketing, absolutely can’t afford to spend any time here. These would involve: constant email activity, needlessly worrying about things that are simply out of your control, spending useless time in social media (Facebook, Twitter, blogs, Youtube…), and my favorite – ANY TV!
Low Dollar Per/Hour Activities. These are the real basic daily tasks that anyone could do for $10/hour. Things like: bookkeeping, minor technical tasks, running errands, filing paperwork, making spreadsheets or word docs… secretarial tasks. The key is to get your brain thinking only about the tasks that actually put money in your bank!More Link
I will be posting a lot of inspirational and practical content for you based on one of my coach’s teachings and the best part is that this comes from outside the “business” field. Most of what we do in business will carry over into how we live our lives and such is the case for Decision Making.
Coach Scott Sonnon who has created a new wave of fitness techniques and disciplines has some of the most profound mindset training I have ever experienced. What’s amazing is the connection to what we study in our Network/Internet Marketing business.
I give you: “Three Simple Rules For Decision Making”
1. The best thing to do is the right thing
2. The next best thing to do is something
3. And the worst thing to do is nothing
