How are you spending your time?

What if you had £100,000 in the bank? What would you do with it? Who would you spend it on? What would you buy? What would you give?

£100,000 is a lot of money, but it can also go faster than we might think.

How about this…what if at the end of every day the £100,000 was taken away and each morning you received a new lump sum of £100,000. Every morning If every day you received a new £100,000 to spend during that day and that day only. You could never save it. Would you use all of it?

Each day we have just over 86,000 seconds. We never get to save any. And each day we get presented with a new 86,000 seconds. The same thinking applies.

What are we spending our time on?
Who are we giving our time to?
What are we doing to push ourselves forward?
What are we doing that is holding us back?

Of course we need time to rest and recharge. But let’s not confuse rest with the fear or worry of getting started.

In regard to being productive:

Who can help us with this project?
How can I cut the steps of this process in half?
What person or software can I use to lighten the load?
What is something I won’t do?
What deadlines have I set?

Productivity and busy work do not lead to happiness alone, but progress does. Knowing we did all we can…does.

Once our time is spent, we never get it back. If we’ve wasted time in the past, forgive yourself. Move on. And have fun!

Focus on the gift that every second is. Focus on the time that is right in front of you and nail it!

Birthday thoughts

Today is my birthday so here’s a few thoughts. If it’s your birthday too have a wonderful day.

Birthdays are a new start; fresh beginnings, a time to start new endeavors with new goals. Move forward with fresh confidence and courage. You are a special person, may you have an amazing today and year!

Count the age, not the wrinkles you have. Count the blessings and the wonderful experience not the mistakes you have made.
Forget the past, look forward to the future for the best things are yet to come.

laranita’s free content source: used by spammers?

Posted on July 3, 2014
I was asked by a ‘comment’ on this blog (not approved, eh?) to google the first four words of the title above. When I do, I find this page, in which you will find several things of interest.

For example, the very first sentence, which reads:

WordAI rewrites articles like human does, this is revolution in content creation.

there are two, perhaps three, grammatical errors. I would rewrite this as:

WordAI rewrites articles as a human does; this is a revolution in content creation.

The site intends to allow you to copy articles, and rewrite them for you, such that Google does not recognize them but is impressed by ‘your’ content. See this quote:

That enhanced AI helps WordAi rewrite text and to instantly spin entire phrases and even articles, guaranteeing Google cannot discover your site content whereas staying totally readable!

This would be funny if it weren’t such a pain in the backside. I get far too many ‘rewritten texts’ with about this level of English smoothness, grammar, and accuracy.

So, a warning for all you spammers of blogs. We will report you to your providers. We will expose you on our blogs.

In short, go somewhere else. You are not welcome here.
