12 Perspectives To Embrace This New Year

If you are like most productivity-aware people, chances are you already have penned down goals or “things” that you want to accomplish this year. Most have theirs when the last quarter kicked in last year.

You constructed these goals in a way that each one is geared towards you becoming a better person than last year – more or less. You probably have an execution plan on how to accomplish them in manner that WINNING is the only result expected.

You also made sure that your goals are S.M.A.R.T – Specific, Measurable, Assignable/Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Based. If your goals are non-SMART compliant, forget all about it, right?

Goals should be concrete and attainable and within targeted parameters. These determine the attainability of your goals.

If you apply the SMART criteria in attaining your goals, in no time – when December of this year comes – you’re going to be the better person that you aspired to be – Better Version of You: Smarter, Stronger, and Bigger!

But, if you are like most mortals, there will be times when you feel that you’ve set the bar too high. That much positivism you feel as the new year unfolds may cause you to overdrive. That surge of energy may make you set your threshold to unintentional heights.

Don’t be surprised if, by the end of this year, you feel like you have become the exact opposite of what you expected to become: Naive, Inept, and Unimportant.

There are personal goals unique to us that are not necessarily subject to the SMART criteria. Each one of us is unique in our own way – and, the same is true when it comes to how we construct our goals.

Yes, making your goals SMART-compatible will make those goals highly attainable. But the SMART criteria are only effective to specific goals – Concrete Measurable Goals.

For everything else, these perspectives will surely make you see your goals in a different light…

1. Don’t Give Yourself A Deadline

A concrete goal must have a target date of accomplishment. That’s true specially with concrete things like finance and some personal development goals. “By the end of the third quarter this year, I should already have a saving of X amount of dollar in my savings account toward my planned out-of-the-country vacation by the end of this year. In order to save that amount, I will be saving X amount of money every day, and I will limit my visit to Starbucks.” That kind of goal needs a concrete deadline because the end of that goal is time-based.

We have goals that are immeasurable by all accounts. Goals like “I want to have a rock star career” are abstract and cannot be qualified using the SMART criteria. So, you need to define for yourself what a “rock star career” is. You should be able to breakdown what makes a rock star career and translate that into attainable, concrete steps (get training, active networking, etc.).

But do you have to put a deadline on yourself? No. Because becoming a rock star does not happen overnight. Sure, you can accumulate some amount of knowledge and gain friends within a definite amount of time but putting a deadline to that will limit the territory you can conquer.

Becoming something big, like a rock star in any form, is a continuous process, and thus requires patience. If things do not fall in the right places in the time frame that you wanted, don’t feel like you are running out of time. Don’t feel like you’re nearing the edge of the cliff. Deadlines are there to guide us through our plans. But if they start to make you miserable in relation to what you want to achieve in life, you know what, screw deadlines!

2. Life Is Not About Winning

In the olden days, the ultimate measure of greatness is the magnitude of your conquest. Who has the biggest empire? Who invaded who? Who controlled the most strategic points? Those symbols of conquest are translated nowadays in terms of material measures like the size of houses one is capable of buying, the type of cars one drives to work, the number of fancy vacation one books in his calendar, etc. Bigger goals render bigger trophies. Dream big, they say.

But who are you trying to impress? Move on. Life is not about winning. It’s not about winning at all. The true measure of success can be found in your heart. And no amount of material things can satisfy that thing.

3. Say “No” more often, Say “Yes” Even More

Running out of time? Nearing a deadline and you feel like you haven’t done anything toward a goal? So, you think that saying “No” to anything that doesn’t help you advance to a goal is the key to achieving your goals within certain amount of time. That might be true. Freeing yourself from commitments you don’t really care about can free up time that you can use for things you care about.

Life is not about winning. So reach out. Have a list of “What-or-Whom-Can-I-Say-Yes-to-Today?” Say No but say Yes more often!

4. Stop Out Winning Others

Who’s keeping a tally of high achievers? CNN Money. Forbes. Wall Street. Larry Ellison. Mark Cuban. Warren Buffett. Or, even Tim Ferriss. Are you in the same league? If you answered Yes, please proceed to out winning all you want to out win. Becoming better has nothing to do with out winning others.

5. Life Is Not A Competition

Don’t feel like you have to prove your worth to anybody. Don’t feel like the society – or your social circle – is pressuring you to becoming something. Finish first, finish strong.

That’s not the name of this game we call life. No, let me take that back. Life is not even a game we play. Life is something meant to be lived, not played. Live up to your potentials. But don’t compare that with what people ahead of you have achieved. For one thing, you didn’t know what kind of battle they fought.

6. The Only Competition Is You

The only thing that stand between you and greatness? You. Start from you and end with you. Then you see You. There is no competition. There is only You.

7. Not Winning Is OK

Do you feel like you’ve been losing left and right? You only feel so because you treat life as if it is a game that you play against everyone else and that you need to win every time to keep your sanity. Haven’t achieved anything significant the past year? What is “significant” to you?

We might not necessarily think about this now but small wins might end up to be our biggest wins down the road. Define winning and losing in your context. Don’t let big wins by others define your personal meaning of winning.

8. No One Cares If You Fail Or Succeed

Losing a big bet? Failing to achieve that quota that would have guaranteed promotion and fatter paycheck? But who cares? Who really cares? Get back to the track and try again. Remember, don’t put a deadline on yourself. Sure, “they” want you to win now. But win in your own terms.

If you’re all for the Win, then Failure cease to matter.

9. Fail Often, Try Often

Winning motivates you. Failing determines your character. Have a definitive character. Fail often.

10. Stop Winning Others

In “How to Win Friends and Influence People“, Dale Carnegie said “You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” That’s one of the many ways to win friends and influence people.

But guess what’s better way to attract more people? Be You. Setting your mind up to win others is a losing strategy.

11. Set Free Goals Instead Of Measurable Ones

SMART Goals bring you success and happiness. Failed SMART Goals? Unhappiness and feeling of worthlessness. Make a bucket list. Focus on your “Someday List”.

12. Or, Don’t Set Goals At All

When you begin to understand that life is not about winning and out winning others give you nothing but emptiness, you begin to realize that goals are not really necessary. Live life the way it is meant to be lived. Live life as is. Aspire to become Goal-Free.

Well, these perspectives sound like a list of “Things That Make One A Loser.” Take it with a grain of salt.

 

How Worker’s Productivity Determines Incentives

Workers productivity is both important to the firm and the employee himself. A worker’s productivity is determined by various aspects which influence the efficiency and quality of work. Companies are investing heavily on their workforce because they are well aware that without them, there would be no production.

Workers are the company’s assets and failure to maintain a good relationship with them may lead to low productivity thus leading to a drop in profits. However, when workers productivity is high, they largely benefit as the company’s revenues increase and with a good cash flow, workers hard work is paid off handsomely.

There are various ways in which workers benefit from their productivity. These include:

Salary Increments, bonus and incentive schemes

Workers performance is recognized by salary increment where the management shares some of their profits with the employees. This greatly motivates the worker and in return works more efficiently.

This is to ensure that the worker gets what he/she deserves and proves to the workers that the management cares about their needs. Bonuses are usually given after a certain period of time and is usually based on the level of productivity.

Insurance Benefits

When workers productivity is high, the company is able to insure each individual by registering them with the insurance company. This is beneficial as it covers medical care in case of sickness, accidents or death where all expenses are paid in full.

It also compensates workers in case of injuries and disabilities which occurs while working in the firm. To this regard, every worker in a firm should possess a Ni number. It is used to pay taxes, work, and access to social security and medical care.

Training

When productivity is high, the company is able to reap from the huge profits incurred. Since the workers are the most valuable assets in the firm, they are provided with training and education insurance.

The training is usually done to sharpen their skills and to help them familiarize themselves with the changing world of technology. Others are offered full education sponsorship in higher learning institutions and thus adding valuable knowledge which benefits them in future.

Investment options

A good company rewards the workers hard work by providing them with insurance for their businesses where they benefit from several coverage’s, offering them loans and also registering them with money lending institutions where they easily access loans which they use to start investments.

The company stand as their guarantors which makes it easier for them to invest without any fears.

Job Security

A company lays off its employees when there is a drop in productivity. Extreme measures are taken to ensure that all excess manpower is rid of. This greatly affects the workers as most of them solely depend on the job for survival.

High productivity ensures all workers are insured in case of lay-offs where they get compensated. Insurance provides them with income even when unemployed.

How Freelancing Can Help Start Your Business

Yes, freelancers do get to set their own hours. And, you’re right, they can take a Doritos break any time they want. And, sure, they do get to do all of this while ensconced in their favorite flannel pajamas.

FreelancersBut there’s more to freelancing than meets the eye. Despite the casual dress code and extremely flexible schedule, freelancing can actually help you succeed as an entrepreneur–building your own business empire.

If you’re wondering how working from your living room in your bunny slippers can possibly lead to success as an entrepreneur, don’t worry.

Freelancing is not as uncommon or laid back as it sounds.

According to a recent Forbes article, freelancers will make up nearly half of the workforce by 2020.

In fact, a clever business person can use their freelancing experience as a way to hone their skills, strut their stuff, and gain valuable contacts.

Honing your skills

As a freelancer, you will need to develop some important skills in order to survive. Here are just a few.

1. Marketing. The only way to survive as a freelancer is to constantly generate new business. And this involves marketing and selling both yourself and your services.

2. Negotiating. Outside of the business realm, most people have very little experience wheeling and dealing–unless, of course, you count the time you offered a low price for a house or wangled free window-tinting on your new Buick.

Freelancers, however, must negotiate price, deadlines, and other details of their jobs all the time.

3. Relevance. In order to compete, freelancers must keep up-to-date on the latest industry trends, constantly acquire new skills and knowledge, and continually challenge themselves.

As a result, freelancers are masters of professional development–eager to learn and willing to abandon outdated ways.

4. Versatility. As a freelancer, you will be exposed to a variety of software and other technologies, business models, and internal processes.

As a result, you will not only possess a wealth of knowledge, but you will also become extremely adaptable–willing and able to tackle new challenges and ways of doing business without trepidation.

Freelancers also need a certain degree of money management skills to survive during the lean times. In What’s Your Financial Back-Up Plan? the author states that although the majority of adults feel a financial back up plan is necessary, few actually have a Plan B in place. Don’t be the minority.

Strutting Your Stuff

Freelancers do not have the backing of a large company–and said large company’s advertising campaign. Subsequently, freelancers become skilled at self-promotion.

And one great way of showing what you can do is to showcase what you have done.

If you are new to the world of writing, graphic design, web design, interior decorating, or any other creative business, freelancing will help you accumulate an impressive body of work.

Freelancing will help you develop a healthy collection of referrals and–the key to future income–an extraordinary portfolio that truly enables you to strut your know-how.

Gaining valuable contacts

Succeeding in the world of business requires networking–and freelancing is the perfect opportunity to meet new contacts and gain exposure for your brand.

1. No borders. Freelancing provides individuals with the chance to gain national–and, sometimes, global–exposure.

These global opportunities will involve networking with industry movers and shakers–contacts that will prove valuable in developing your business empire.

2. Credit. Freelancers have complete control over the quality of their work. You don’t have to worry about sharing credit for your final product with co-workers or the company that you work for.

When you create a masterpiece, it is fully attributed to you.

Granted, some people think that being self-employed sucks. While working at your kitchen table might not be the most dignified career choice, it may be a wise one.

So shed that suit jacket and fling off that tie. Grab your jammies and get to work. You’ve got an empire to run.

How has freelancing contributed to the success of your business empire?

How to Overcome Stress in the Workplace

Dealing With Stress At WorkplaceWe encounter stress on a daily basis especially in our workplace. Sometimes it is part of our daily lives but it does not have to be. It is important to learn how to deal with stress and how to overcome it.

If we just let stress rule our lives, it can cause serious damage to our health and to our overall well-being. We must learn ways to overcome it before it overcomes us.
Some people deal with stress in different ways. Some people prefer to go to the park and be one with nature. Some people prefer to exercise and go to the gym to let go off some steam.

Some people would do some yoga while some people would simply sing about it. One of the simplest ways that I have learned on how to deal with stress and its effects is through writing.
With regards to writing, here are some useful tips that can help anyone overcome stress:

1. Write about your Feelings

People sometimes have forgotten how important it is to express your feelings and emotions. One of the best ways to do it is to write about those feelings and emotions that burdens you.

It give us some relief when we write down the feelings that we are have locked up inside. We must learn to express them in a good way. Writing about it, is the start to letting go of any negative feelings that you may have inside.

2. Share What You Wrote to Others

I know that this may seem crazy to others but it is important to share to other people what you have written for as long as you are comfortable with it. When you discuss what you have written to another person, they can help you identify why you felt that way and that person can give you some new perspective and advice on how to deal with it.

It is also a relief to have someone to talk to about what you are feeling especially in your workplace. Sometimes all you need is to have someone to talk to.

3. Blog about It

One way to unburden yourself and deal with stress is to blog about the experiences that you have encountered that brought you some stress. Blogging is like having a diary that you can use to write about your daily experiences whether that may be good or bad. You can use an alias to protect your name and to remain anonymous; this can give you the freedom to write about what you feel without the fear that people may judge you differently.

Blogging your feelings especially about your workplace can also help someone in need or who is in the same situation as you are. You may not know it but you may be helping someone in need when you blog about your experiences.
Those are some useful tips that anyone can use to overcome stress especially through writing. I have found out how relaxing it is to be able to write about your feelings and be able to share it to the world.

Sometimes when you know that other people have the same problems as you do, it helps you feel better and it can even provide a way for you to find some solutions to your problems. It is important to remember that we should not let stress overwhelmed us, we must overcome it.

How Innovation Spurs Productivity

Innovation is the cornerstone to any successful endeavor.

Innovation is necessary in almost every successful achievement. We need a vibrant influx of ideas to market target niches and make our brands stronger.

Innovation can result in breakthrough changes to new or fundamentally changed products and services that can radically alter what companies sell and generate major gains in revenue and profits. Examples of radical innovation include Facebook, the Internet, penicillin, ATM and iPad.

Incremental changes can be in response to evolving customer needs, or the result of ideas emerging from research labs or elsewhere.

Examples of incremental change to products include Microsoft’s Windows 7, Apple’s second generation iPad, and niche food products (e.g., 10 kinds of tomato sauce).

Examples of incremental change to services include online registration systems, drive-through coffee such as Tim Horton’s, the spa as a one-stop source for all beauty needs, and same-day dry cleaning.

[ From Amazon: “Extreme Productivity: Boost Your Results, Reduce Your Hours” ]

Innovation plays a key role in our personal lives too. There are plenty of innovations for staying healthy, happy and prosperous and finding the right activities and people to make our lives rich and full.

We need fresh new ways to keep a marriage strong and healthy. Our finances often need to be revised and stay current with today’s challenges. There are no shortages of need for parenting innovations.

We can’t just talk about innovation. We have to encourage, support and execute it.

Here a 3 ways to develop the skill-set to become a top innovator.

Write down all your ideas

Keep a notebook and write down all your ideas as they come to mind. Even if they sound crazy, write them down.

Crazy is sometimes the foundation for a really great idea. When you have a list of great ideas you can rate them. Which one jumps off the page?

Form an innovation group

Many mastermind groups meet on a weekly or monthly basis and brainstorm ways to launch new ideas or market new products. There are personal mastermind groups as well.

People who are committed to making positive changes in their lives and take on challenges of high-quality living. You can meet on any topic or have very focused groups. It’s entirely up to you.

[ From Amazon: “Extreme Productivity: Boost Your Results, Reduce Your Hours” ]

Become goal oriented

Take each area of your life and ask yourself:

What is working?
What’s not perfect yet?
What am I willing to do to make this the way I want?
How can I do this and enjoy the process?

Cloverleaf Innovation, a marketing consulting company in Chicago has a description of innovation here:

Unique ideas optimized to increase potential for positive, profitable results.

Productivity has a direct link to innovation in 3 ways.

Innovation provokes creativity

When we’re engaged in the creative process we are pouring our heart and soul into the work.

We aren’t watching the clock or worried about what others are doing instead. Our power and energy is on making ideas flourish and maximizing results. It’s a process that organizations must engage in to succeed in the 21st Century.

Innovation keeps us competitive

Finding external innovators and innovations that can be leveraged inside your organization will keep you one step ahead of your competition.

It’s far more productive to be heading powerfully in the direction of our choosing then to be stuck somewhere you’d rather not be. It moves us beyond what we’ve already accomplished.

Innovation challenges our fears

J.K. Rowling puts it beautifully in this simple quote,

“If you’re holding out for universal popularity I’m afraid you’ll be in this cabin for a very long time.”

Encourage your employees at all levels to drive continuous innovation. Improving productivity using innovation clearly helps us develop a life by design and achieve the success of a profitable business.

Visionaries Are Ten Steps Ahead Of Us

Steve Jobs is known for, aside from Apple and Pixar, his reality-distortion field. He simply made the impossible possible in the tech world.

Steve Jobs is a visionary. And many are like him.

Erik Calonius has documented the “why’s” of how these visionaries achieved great success at their respective fields in his book, Ten Steps Ahead: What Separates Successful Business Visionaries from the Rest of Us (affiliate link).

I kept Erik’s book in my personal library simply because I love it. Erik found out that these visionaries are not really apart from us – they are only ahead of us. We possess the same quality they possess. But the difference is how they see things differently. And, you, too, can learn to see things differently.

This is the main idea in my latest post titled, “Visionary: Seeing Through Defects” (posted in my personal blog).

Go one step ahead, read Visionary: Seeing Through Defects.

Becoming A Better Person With Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits

If you’ve kept a copy of David Allen’s Getting Things Done book, I’m quite sure sitting next to it would be Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Ask any knowledge worker you know about their top books, and they tell you easily 7 Habits is one of them.

The 7 Habits mean different things to different people, depending on their perspective in life. A businessman would look at it as principles to live by in running his business. A farmer would look at it probably in the same fashion, principles to live by, but through a different lens.

1. Be Proactive

Like what Stephen said in the book, you cannot control circumstances around your life but you can always control how you react to them. Bad things happen to good people, as they always say.

An event could easily turn your world upside down. A devastating calamity could befall you. You don’t have the power to control things outside of yourself. But you have the total control over your volition.

2. Begin With The End In Mind

What’s your mission in life? What do you think is the reason why you are called into this world. You can approach this question in a metaphysical way, but your answer doesn’t need to be too deep to fathom.

If you are a CEO of a company, you just know what things to accomplish to fulfill your purpose. If you are a parent to a child, you just know what your mission is – to help that child grow to become a good person.

3. Put First Things First

Knowing the mission is just a small step. In fact, the steps you’d take to accomplish that mission are not as important as the mission itself. How often do you find yourself dwelling in success of achieving a very important step in your life, only to realize you’re drifting away from your original goals?

Things change. Our goals change throughout our life. Our mission should not.

4. Think Win/Win

There is one truth in life that you must accept, you cannot always win. But you can always make any circumstance favorable, if not to you, to the other person.

Win your relationship with your wife, with your colleagues, with your subordinates. You might have to disagree with another person, but you have the chance to turn that disagreement into a favorable situation.

5. Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood

In every situation regardless of circumstances, we look at everything through our own lens. We are born, or sculpted to have, our own sets of belief by which we gauge our world.

We look at every interactions through our own perspective. We always seek to be understood, then we understand. Learn to look at things from the eyes of the other person. See things with the sight other than your own. Then you’ll understand.

6. Synergize

No man is an island, so the adage tells us. And this is true. Building relationships is an imperative in this life.

You can only become a better person only if you become a better partner first, or a better worker first, or a better brother or sister first.

7. Sharpen The Saw

Becoming a good person is not an end in itself. It’s a continuous process. It’s one thing that requires us to continually strive to reach out to other people, to our partner, to our co-worker.

Becoming a good person is an endeavour that calls for incessant practice.

Earlier this week, the author of 7 Habits died. This post is my little tribute to the man. You owe it to yourself to read the 7 Habits book.

Sure Ingredients To Achieving Goals

Each year many of us make a list of things we want to achieve that year. For some that list is their “New Year’s Resolution”. For some that list is the things they want to have or to be – a house, car, get married, etc.

We can call that many names. They are simply goals.

We know there is a sense, or a feeling, that comes with achieving those goals one by one. We may have a sense of contentment, or just a sense of happiness in general.

On the other end, we know there is some feeling of disappointment, or regret – even pain, that comes with failing to achieve those goals.

Here are the ingredients that guarantee us success in achieving just any kind of goals we set to achieve:

Concrete Plan

We must have a plan of attack. With that, we must know what tools or strategy to employ. This is also the right opportunity to determine the necessary steps, if any, to achieve those goals. You must only have “Plan A” – the Plan to Achieve!

Commitment

Know what it takes for the attack to be successful. Once you got the tools and laid out the plan, you must gauge what amount of effort it would take to execute the plan. Give it your all. Give up a limb if necessary.

Clear Direction

There is only one way to arrive at your destination – the right way. Opportunities will give you options to take. You must be clear of what you want, of how you want it. You get lost without a clear direction.

These are the essential elements we need to achieve our goals. Of course, there are distractions and obstacles along the path.

Our chance of getting distracted away from our goals is very likely without our ability to focus.

 

How Far Are You Willing To Go To Get Your Brain Work Better

$99 can get you the chance of increasing your “learning rates.” But are you willing to spend that if it involves sending your brain “increased amount of electrical current”?

The DIY Kit, Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), as described in a BGR report , is “a safe and effective means of increasing cognitive performance.”

The way I understand it is it stimulates some part of your brain which then somehow increases neuronal excitability. Ok, honestly I don’t understand it.

Then who needs hard work? You might need some work to get that $99.

Apparently you can learn more effectively with tDCS than with any traditional methods (i.e., hard work plus more effort) – that is if you’re willing to spend that 99 bucks.

GoFlow, manufacturer of the $99 kit, advertises tDCS as “one of the coolest pieces of health/self improvement technology available today.”

I perceive the whole thing somehow as science fiction. Although tDCS is a proven science (used by “US Army and DARPA to train snipers and drone pilots”), I’m a little bit concerned about its negative effects on the brain over all function, if there are any.

I guess, I’d stick with the traditional methods of learning (e.g., read more and often, watch tutorials, practice, practice, practice, etc).

I am not really comfortable with hacking my own brain, or any of my biological parts for that matter.

Plus, sending increased amount of current to my head is, to me, over the top.

Perhaps, If I can double my effort rates by 2.5, I could achieve the same neuronal excitability that the tDCS kit provides.

I could spend that $99 to buy some books (or ebooks) to read. Or keep the $99 and quit being lazy learning.

The Future Of Education Is Online

How to teach kids more effectively? The school environment is the most important portion of that. There is no doubt about it.

There is an urgency that school children need to learn more math and science. That is specially true here in the US.

What if the parents can utilize a cool tool to augment their kids’ learning? What if the hardest part of this tool is convincing kids to sit down and watch videos (I guess, that is not hard at all)?

This is the future of education.

Khan Academy is at the heart of this movement. Its goal is “to revolutionize how we teach and learn.” Simple step. Giant leap.

This online academy is currently serving millions of students worldwide. It is free to use.

The online academy offers a range of video lessons from basic math to advanced physics. It is very useful if you have kids at early stages of elementary education. High school students will greatly benefit from the algebra and physics video lessons.

Every parent has the responsibility to teach his or her kid. This is a shared responsibility with the school teacher. Khan Academy definitely eases that effort.

Khan Academy is so great that even Bill Gates is a fan. In fact he mentioned in one conference that he used the site to teach his kids.

Khan Academy is a funded non-profit. visit the Khan Academy website for more information.
