How To Be More Productive: Stop Wishing and Start Working

 

How To Be More Productive: Stop Wishing and Start Working

Be More Productive

I want, I wish and I will are danger words.

They are the words we use when we are thinking about doing work. If we are wishing, wanting or promising ourselves that we will, we have already been overtaken by procrastination. Instead of engaging in meaningful work, we click over to YouTube for our daily dose of mindless entertainment. Eventually inspiration will strike; we just have to wait it out.

If only it were that simple. But, it’s not.

Think about it; going to the gym is called working out, not wishing out. And, going to the office is called work, not fun or play. It’s the work, not birthday candles or shooting stars that will shape us into the kind of person we want to be.

The only logical solution on how to be more productive is to stop wishing and start working.  Now you’re thinking like an entrepreneur!

Hard Work is, well, Hard!

When it comes time to do the work why can’t we just buckle down and do it? Instead of making the good choice – work – we’d rather do anything else. That’s because willpower is a finite resource. When it runs out, we crash and fly the white flag of defeat.

But, there is a way to get your brain and body off the picket line and back to work. You need a plan to be more productive.

Create a Productivity Plan

The work will never do itself. A novel needs a writer to bring it to life. And, the high-rise will never exist without the architect and engineer. Regardless of what you want to do, the first thing you need to do is show up. You might be in front of a computer or staring at a blank canvas. Wherever you are, be prepared to do the work.

Scott Belsky, creator of Behance and author of Making Ideas Happen, said it best; “ideas don’t happen because they are great – or by accident.” We need a process for transforming ideas into outcomes. That’s why having a productivity plan is so important; it helps us execute.

Get started, now! The more you think about starting something, the scarier it becomes. Your brain will try to show you all the ways you can fail. Don’t talk yourself out of doing the work. Create manageable, bite sized tasks that you can handle and get started now.

Create a routine. You have to do the work consistently. That means making time to hustle, everyday. You might be an early riser, so get to work first thing in the morning. Or, if you’re a night owl, burn the midnight oil. The goal here is to figure out a work schedule that works for you.

Schedule breaks. The experts among us, in any field, are relentless workers. But, they also take breaks. It’s best to work intently for 90 minutes and then follow that up with a brief 15 minute break, before getting back on the grind.

Disconnect. In the age of multiple screens and constant connectivity it’s almost impossible to focus on a single task. That’s why you need to disconnect. When it’s time to get down to business turn your phone off and unplug the internet. Work without distractions and see what you can accomplish.

Set a deadline. Get out your calendar and mark it with an “X”. As in, I will finish this project, task, section by “X” date.  Otherwise, it’s unlikely that you will focus or commit to doing the work any time soon.

Say no. You can’t be everything to everyone. And, there’s not enough time in the day to pursue all of the grand ideas you have. Identify the things that are most important to you and devote your time, energy and resources to those things. Now, this isn’t a free pass to be a jerk. But, you do have permission to tell others – politely – that their requests will have to wait.

Make a list. Every night take a few minutes to think about what you accomplished that day, and then make a list of what needs to be done tomorrow. It’s like a to-do list, but you should have one for work and another for personal tasks.

You can also take your to-do list one step further by enacting the 1-3-5 method. It’s based on the idea that, on any given day, you can only accomplish one big thing, three medium things, and five small things. That means that you have nine tasks arranged in terms of importance.  Stop wishing and be in control of what gets done and when.

Stop meeting. Time is your most valuable commodity. There’s only one of you and 24 hours in a day. That’s why you have to stop making pointless meetings. Granted, there are some meetings that are unavoidable; like when your boss requests your presence. And, networking can be critically important. But, your focus should be accomplishing your to-do list, not putting things off by making more meetings.

Fill your toolbox. Since willpower and discipline alone are not enough to make miracles happen, try building out your productivity toolbox. Creative types, like da Vinci, were always armed with a notebook used to capture random thoughts, inspiration and to-do notes.

Now, since everyone has a computer in their pocket, you can arm yourself with organizational tools and apps like EvernoteMindmeister and followupthen.com. Take notes, create mind maps and send yourself email reminders for important projects.

When all is said and done, the purpose of your productivity plan is to create new, better, habits. Once you’re able to do that, you’ll be able to replicate the work process over and over, regardless of the task itself

How to Use Your Memory to Boost Your Savings

How to Use Your Memory to Boost Your Savings

Information gathered by Kimberly Palmer

“Maybe someone is buying coffee and not thinking about the future consequences. Maybe another person thinks, ‘I’m trying to save, and I could put that $3 to those goals instead, but I just don’t care.’ And maybe a third person, who is most likely to save, does think about it and feels it’s important.

1369847707_4085_memory

Are you ready to apply that finding to your own life? Here are three strategies to maximize your own savings:

1. Stop before you shop.

Urminsky says when you’re about to splurge on coffee, for example, stop and ask yourself: “Am I really in the mood for coffee? Is this a good price? For most people who haven’t taught themselves to think this way, they don’t consider how much retirement savings that $4 would amount to.

His suggestion echoes the concept of  the credit card sleeves created by the nonprofit Jews United for Justice, which encourages shoppers to pause and reflect on the true impact of their purchase. The credit card sleeve, designed to fit around credit cards, ask: “Is this something I need?” “Can I borrow, find one used or make one instead of buying new?” “Will this purchase enhance the meaning and joy in my life?” (The Center for a New American Dream offers a similar credit card sleeve, called a Wallet Buddy.)

Short-Term-Memory-Don't-Forget-Cropped

Saving for the future seems to depend on people remembering that there are alternative uses for their money, Urminsky points out, and sometimes we all need extra reminders of that.

2. Make a list of your priorities.

Sitting down and making a priority list of how you want to spend money, and reviewing the list on a regular basis, can keep the importance of saving at the top of your mind, Urminsky says, and then you’re more likely to remember those longer-term goals and your future self in the check-out line.

“Whenever people are in financial planning mode and they’re doing things like writing down what they’re saving for, then it’s easier to develop a habit of thinking about spending in terms of tradeoffs,” he says. “Some people need an external queue, like sitting down with a checkbook every Sunday, to help them track things and think about the impact of spending,” he adds.

3. Make it harder for you to spend.

This strategy is a tricky one because so much of modern life seems focused on making it easier for us to spend: Credit cards, “one-click” ordering and online shopping can make us feel as if we’re not even dealing with real cash, anyway, but virtual stuff that is easily replenished.

“Spending with credit cards is just too easy,” Urminsky says. “In the old days, people would have different accounts and put their money in separate envelopes, and that forces you to confront the tradeoffs in financial decision-making.” Even if you don’t return to paper-based envelope budgeting, you can sit down and create a priority list for your money, which will help you think through the various opportunity costs and options that you face.

Precious Metals Review

Precious Metals Review

From precious metals expert Jim Sinclair, quoted in a posting on Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog website on March 16th:

images (4)

”On Russia countering Western sanctions, Sinclair says watch the ‘struggling dollar’ and Russia accepting any currency for oil and natural gas.  Sinclair explains, ‘It’s struggling . . . because it smells the real teeth of retaliation for sanctions being in the simple acceptance of any currency whatsoever for payment for gas to Europe.  Believe me, they will settle in other currencies . . . It makes energy cheaper.  Why in the world would anyone want to pay in dollars if they can pay in their own currency?  Russia could retaliate in a way that would have phenomenal impact on the U.S. dollar . . . Russia has the upper hand.  They have it in their ability to turn the U.S. economy upside down and into collapse.  There is no question whatsoever.  Putin doesn’t need a nuclear bomb.  He has a nuclear economic bomb that he can set off at any time.’

What would the price of gold be this year?  Sinclair predicts, ‘Gold has $2,000 an ounce in its sites in 2014.’  On silver, Sinclair says, ‘Silver is gold on steroids.  When gold takes off, silver goes up faster . . . So, the idea you are going to get an old high on silver or better is a given.’ ”

779-h_main

. . . and from former Congressman Dr. Ron Paul, in his weekly ”Texas Straight Talk” message on March 16th:

”The reaction of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to last week’s revelations that the CIA secretly searched Senate Intelligence Committee computers reveals much about what the elites in government think about the rest of us.  ‘Spy on thee, but not on me!’ ”

”The essence of this problem has to do with the difficulty in managing the US empire.  When the government behaves as an empire rather than as a republic, lying to the rest of us is permissible.  They spy on everybody because they don’t trust anybody.  The answer is obvious: rein in the CIA; remove its authority to conduct these kinds of covert actions.  Rein in government.  Lawmakers should not defend Fourth Amendment rights only when their staffs have been violated.  They should do it all the time for all of us.  The people’s branch of government must stand up for the people.  Let’s hope that Sen. Feinstein has had her wake-up call and will now finally start defending the rest of us against a government that increasingly sees us as the enemy. ”

. . . and from money manager and author Bob Wiedemer, in his ”Aftershock Newsletter” for March 2014:

”Today the Fed and Congress dedicate much of their energy to keeping Wall Street happy and the financial bubbles high, with little regard for the long-term integrity of the market or the economy in general.  The Fed has printed $3 trillion since the financial crisis — its $1 trillion of printed money in 2013 alone was more than it had printed in the Fed’s entire history prior to 2007.  The Treasury has borrowed $5 trillion since the crisis, far more than the economy has grown in that time.  Sure, we’ve reduced the annual deficit, but it’s still triple what it was in 2007.

images (5)

Far from being a critic or an adversary of Wall Street, today the government puts an incredible amount of power into maintaining our asset bubbles, and there is every reason to expect that that will continue.  This would be fine if there was no cost to it, but history shows that excessive borrowing and printing always comes with disastrous consequences.  And in spite of what anyone may tell you, once the snowball gets rolling, there’s little political will to stop it because the pain is enormous.”

. . . and from Todd G. Buchholz, in an editorial on the ”Issues & Insights” page of Investor’s Business Daily on March 19th:

”Cows did not care much for railroads in the 1880s.  Those steel grills on the front of locomotives are called cow-catchers, and would turn live steer into instant hamburger.

That’s pretty much the story of economic progress, which the Austrian economist Joseph Schumpeter called ‘creative destruction.’  There’s often a lot of blood left on the ground, but it’s largely been worth the price.”

”Of course, it’s wrong to claim all progress is good and new industries create only good and never inflict pain.  A free market is not a pain-free market.  Good economic policies create losers, but the winners are either more plentiful in number or create large enough overall gains to compensate the losers.

Looking backward to prop up old jobs, old buildings and old cattle is not a strategy for success.  It’s the desperate flinch of entrenched interests.

Jerry Seinfeld does a funny routine teasing the U.S. Post Office, noting we should not be surprised when a business model based on a 1630s model of licking, walking and random pennies cannot compete.  ‘If you really want to be helpful to us, just open the letters, read ‘em and email us what it says.’

 

Of course, these days we could go with the Seinfeld plan and give the job of opening those letters to NSA snoops.  That’ll protect and preserve some extra jobs in Washington, D.C.”

. . . and from Myra P. Saefong, in a posting on the MarketWatch website on March 21st:

”After a 28% price plunge in 2013, the worst since at least 1984, analysts weren’t expecting much from gold this year.  Many big banks were forecasting average 2014 prices below $1,300 an ounce, down from last year’s average of $1,413.  But the precious metal has already managed to outperform U.S. stocks, bonds, emerging markets and the dollar.”

person winning

”The metal’s performance has been impressive against a bevy of assets.  But its path is far from set.  Developments between Ukraine, Russia and the West are still fluid, and hints from Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen that a U.S. interest-rate hike could take place sooner rather than later could make bond yields more attractive.  Still, if you were one of those contrarians who were ‘quietly bullish’ in January, we’ll forgive some back-patting.

Year to date, gold futures prices have climbed around 11%, far outpacing a slightly more than 1% gain for the S&P 500 Index.”

‘Gold often trades inversely with the U.S. dollar — everyone’s heard that before, but the year-to-date chart is really starting to show it.  As the dollar has fallen this year, gold prices have climbed.”

CUSTOMER SERVICE YOUR CLIENTS WILL REMEMBER

CUSTOMER SERVICE YOUR CLIENTS WILL REMEMBER

images (3)

The real touchstone that separates one business from the next is customer service. Customers remember how they are made to feel by your staff more than anything else about the products you sell them.

Irritate them, leave them waiting for too long for what they want, or fail to be polite, and they will remember. Although, if you befriend them and bend over backwards to meet their needs, you’ve earned a loyal new customer. Here are some tips on where customer service wins through.

Good Communication

From greeting them when you meet them all the way through to saying goodbye and sending them politely on their way, communication is key. Begin with a sincere and warm welcome, though don’t overdo it — you have to mean it. Let your customer know that you are there to help them, but be as natural about it as you can. Steer the conversation if necessary to whatever you want to sell them, but avoid becoming too pushy and don’t make it sound like you’re simply reading them a sales script.

One of the most important parts of good communication is listening, so always be sure to pay attention to what your customer wants from you. Smiling is a powerful tool as well – smiles are ‘contagious’, so when you smile your customer will usually smile back at you.

Be an Expert

Your customers have turned to you because they think you can help them with what they want. If you are selling computers, they are relying on your expertise about the specifications they need. You must ensure you know more about your business than your customers, so you can help them every step of the way.

Go Out of Your Way

You are there to provide something to your customer. If they’re handing over their cash to you, at the very least you owe them the best possible service you can give them. Whether that’s wrapping their items carefully and thoughtfully, or offering next day delivery through a firm , there are all kinds of ways that you can show your customers how much they mean to you by offering that extra touch.

But of course you must only promise your customer what you can give them – breaking your word is possibly the most unforgivable mistake a company can make for its clients. Remember these tips, even put a copy of them by the till in your shop and you will make some good customers who will be sure to come back.

GOLD UPDATE

GOLD UPDATE

Gold is higher again today as the FOMC commences their two-day meeting. The market began the week quite short and rather oversold, so it’s not surprising to see some position squaring going into the policy statement.
While the Fed is widely expected to hold steady on policy, there remains some uncertainty as to the likely tenor of the statement. Some analysts are expecting hints from the Fed that ‘lift-off’ will come sooner rather than later: Will they or won’t they remove the assurance that rates will be kept near 0% for a “considerable time”?

I think there is enough uncertainty about the true health of the U.S. economy that the dovish-leaning FOMC will remain cautious with respect to any overt shift in guidance. I’d look instead for some tweaking of the language to suggest slightly more optimism.

As I alluded to yesterday, I doubt the Fed is too keen on offering additional support to the dollar. The greenback is up nearly 7% over the last four-moths. After all, if goosing inflation and taking slack out of the labor market are your objectives, a strong currency is not the solution.

In fact, to a monetarist, those goals can best be achieved by doing the exact opposite; weakening the currency. Unfortunately, the monetarists at the ECB and BoJ are just doing that better right now than those at the Fed.

This gives the appearance of dollar strength, but in reality the recent gains in the greenback are more a function of euro and yen weakness. When you wield the hammer of monetary policy, every problem looks like a nail. Bang it down.

Let Me Tell You What’s Happening with Gold

MONEY AND MARKETS: INVESTING INSIGHTS

Let Me Tell You What’s Happening with Gold

With gold now moving lower and breaking critical support at the $1,262 level, let me tell you exactly what’s happening:

First, the timeframe for a major low in gold runs until the end of January.

And now that it’s broken that $1,262 level, we are likely to see gold fall below the June low at $1,178, and then below $1,100. I suspect the final low will be somewhere between $990 and $1,035.

Second, the action we are seeing in gold of late is part and parcel of a major bottoming process. It’s swinging wildly. So are silver, platinum and palladium.

 

xxxxx
Don’t let impatience or frustration cause you to take your eye off the prize.

 

That volatility is important. Why? Because important bottoms in any market take time to develop. Unlike important tops, which occur suddenly, important bottoms are tricky.

Important bottoms are characterized by:

  • Increasing volatility
  • False breakouts
  • Sharp moves lower
  • Wild swings overall, causing traders and investors to become impatient, frustrated, even hopeless

The key during this very important time period: Don’t let impatience or frustration cause you to take your eye off the prize. That’s what the market wants you to do.

 

But if you fall prey to the market’s antics at this time, when a major bottom is being formed, you will not be one of those who rides the next bull leg higher to glory.

Keep in mind that at important tops, a market will always do its best to trap you near the highs and make it hard for you to get out …

While at important market bottoms, a market will do everything in its power to prevent you from getting on board.

So, though gold has broken the $1,262 level, sharp rallies are still possible within the confines of a trend that should find gold headed lower into January.

Third, the latest data from my cycle studies support the wild action we are seeing and the bottoming process.

More specifically, as you can see from the chart below of the long-term daily cycles, gold should be heading lower into January.

But look at the long-term weekly cycles for gold on this next chart.

This type of formation — where the daily cycles are bearish but the weekly cycles are bullish — is not unusual at important turning points.

It’s what causes wild swings, confusion in the market place — and yet, it’s part and parcel of the bottoming process.

It’s the market’s way of throwing as many curveballs at you as possible — to shake you out of the market — so only the savviest, most disciplined investors can profit from the next leg up.

One more thing about gold and the bottoming process. Here are my year-end momentum and trading ranges to monitor for gold …

Gold’s 2014 momentum range: $1,948.10 — $1,338.20

Gold’s 2014 trend range: $1,268.30 — $852.60

If you’ve been watching gold closely, you can see how accurate those ranges are. Gold rallied above the $1,338.20 level — the bottom of the 2014 momentum range — in late October, but then suddenly dropped right back below it.

This is critical. It is telling you that the momentum in gold remains negative, with a bearish bias heading into year-end.

And now, gold has fallen below the top of the 2014 trend range at $1,268.30. This tells you that the daily cycles are now overpowering the weekly cycles, setting up gold for a January 2014 low, at much lower prices.

All of this is also why I urge you to pay very close attention to the gold market now … to everything I write and send you … and be ready to act on a moment’s notice.

Gold is reaching its most important inflexion point since its major bottom back in 1999. And if you let the wild action throw you off course, you will miss the next big leg up that will take gold to well over $5,000 an ounce.

Be patient, disciplined and wait for my signals. If you can do that, you stand to make more money in gold over the next three years than you ever dreamed possible.

Best wishes,

Larry

Gold Defensive As Dollar Gets Bested in Currency War

Gold Defensive As Dollar Gets Bested in Currency War

usagoldcoins

by Peter A. Grant

Gold extended to the downside, eking out a new three-month low. However, short-term support at 1240.20 continues to contain the downside thus far.

The dollar remains on the defensive in the currency war as other countries are just being more aggressive in trying to debase their currencies. The dollar index remains elevated near fourteen-month highs amid heightened expectations that the ECB and BoJ may ease further keeps the euro and yen on the ropes.

The Swiss National Bank got back into the act today by warning that they are prepared to implement “other measures necessary” to enforce the 1.20 floor for the EUR-CHF rate. There was a distinct emphasis on negative interest rates and EUR-CHF dutifully popped back above 1.21.

Dow Jones reports that the BoJ may have bought short-term JGBs with negative yields on Tuesday. This obviously goes against the most basic tenets of investing; not that the BoJ needs to concern itself with such matters. It’s stated goal is to shake the savings out of the Japanese people.

Of course the Japanese people probably recognize the folly of BoJ policy and may well continue saving in anticipation the fallout from said policy. If Japanese savers don’t cooperate by borrowing and spending, what might be the policymakers’ next move? I shudder to think…

Interestingly, former Fed chair Alan Greenspan told an insurance industry meeting yesterday that “the only way the economy can grow is to save.” This is the same guy who first drove U.S. interest rates toward the zero-bound with the intention of discouraging savings as a means to reinvigorating a flagging economy.

Greenspan also said the insurance industry “is the mechanism by which you’re converting consumption into savings.” So, he likely was blowing a little sunshine up the dress of the industry that was paying him to be a keynote speaker. I sincerely doubt he’s had such a change of heart.

But even if he has, it may be too late. We’ve borrowed our prosperity from the future for so long, that the future may not have much more to give. If we reverse course now and start to save for that future, all-hell is going to break loose in the present.

While the algorithms may say sell gold when the dollar is rising, prudent investors should take advantage of the lower price — courtesy of the paper market — to stock-up on physical metal. Because, Greenspan’s recent comments not-withstanding, the central banks of the world are still determined to keep rates low (and even negative) in an ongoing effort to debase currency. Converting a portion of one’s savings in those currencies to gold makes perfect sense in the context of wealth preservation.

10 Habits You Must Quit to Be Happy

10 Habits You Must Quit to Be Happy

10 Habits You Must Quit to Be Happy

 

When you quit doing the wrong things, you make more room for the things that make you happy.  So starting today…

final 5 revealed…. POST WRITTEN BY: ANGEL CHERNOFF

6.  Quit criticizing others.

The negativity you bleed out toward others will gradually cripple your own happiness.  When you truly feel comfortable with your own imperfections, you won’t feel threatened or offended by the imperfections you see in other people.

So stop worrying about the flaws you see in everyone else, and focus on yourself.  Let the constant growth and improvement in your own life keep you so busy that you have no time left to criticize others.

7.  Quit running from your problems and fears.

Trust me, if everyone threw their problems in a pile for you to see, you would grab yours back.  Tackle your problems and fears swiftly, don’t run away from them.  The best solution is to face them head on no matter how powerful they may seem.

Fears, in particularly, stop you from taking chances and making decisions.  They keep you confined to just the small space where you feel completely comfortable.  But your life’s story is simply the culmination of many small, unique experiences, many of which require you to stretch your comfort zone.  Letting your fears and worries control you is not ‘living,’ it’s merely existing.

Bottom line:  Either you own your problems and fears, or they will ultimately own you.

8.  Quit living in another time and place.

Some people spend their entire lives trying to live in another time and place.  They lament about what has been, what they could have done, or what might become.  However, the past is gone, and the future doesn’t exist.  No matter how much time we spend thinking and lamenting about either, it doesn’t change anything.

One of life’s sharpest paradoxes is that our brightest future hinges on our ability to pay attention to what we’re doing right now, today.

We need to live more in the moment.  Living in the moment requires active, open, intentional awareness on the present.  Don’t fantasize about being on vacation while at work, and don’t worry about the work piling up on your desk when you’re on vacation.  Live for now.  Notice the beauty unfolding around you.

9.  Quit trying to be someone you’re not.

One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.  Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love you, and you’ll love yourself more too.  The Road Less Traveled.

10.  Quit being ungrateful.

Not all the puzzle pieces of life will seem to fit together at first, but in time you’ll realize they do, perfectly.  So thank the things that didn’t work out, because they just made room for the things that will.  And thank the ones who walked away from you, because they just made room for the ones who won’t.

No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.  Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.  Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.
