Gary Vaynerchuck talks a lot about “knowing who you are.” And It’s true, that’s something we should do.

“Know Thyself” would say Plato.

Just A Small Change : No More Television

Another post about disconnecting from television and a reference to a book I’ve read twice, which has now been added to my must reread list!

Just A Small Change

I have been a bit experimental with what forms a regular part of my daily life. The Most Recent of the same has been my decision to stop watching Television. I’m already off with my newspaper subscriptions too. My satellite television connection is now unsubscribed for more than 3 Months.

I’d not thought that even this small a change would require so much courage to stand this socially. I’ve had advices from all friends on the reconnecting to Television as if the whole life is happening there.

That’s why I could never go back to school or Barnes and Noble. Simply, because I will go broke! So before I go to bed I am always surfing the web on my iphone until I temporarily lose consciousness. Hey, some people read and some people surf…

Conquering Procrastination

You must come to the realization that putting things off instead of taking action is a habit and like all habits it can be replaced with one that is more productive!

Hexane and Heels

Procrastination is a huge productivity killer, and it affects everyone. If you’re a student with a full course load or a professional with a large workload, these tips can help you get back on track.

1. Create and maintain a Work-Progress Journal.

A Work-Progress Journal is exactly what it sounds like; a journal to keep track of the work you’re doing and the progress you’re making. You don’t need any fancy notebook for this. Any notebook would be fine.

Every morning grab your journal and jot down what you plan to do for the day. Either as you complete tasks or after the day ends, record how much time you spent on each task. If you want to be really specific you could use a timer, but estimates are fine, also. This will allow you to get an idea of how much time you need to set aside for repetitive tasks. For the…
