… just about two and half years ago. She is cute, funny and endlessly searching for the next person to adore her. She is, Belle, aka ‘The Beeble’.
In an earlier post (If this then that – why life is the way it is!) I began to explain how I’d come to find out about the three principles and the journey of discovery I’ve had so far. On a recent Liberate your Thinking retreat in Weymouth with very lovely Caroline Brewer, Liz Scott and Stu Newberry I found myself talking about the quantum nature of thought and Liz challenged me to find a way of explaining what I meant as it was pretty garbled at the time.
I titled this piece, If this then that, after an automation service that businesses and individuals can use to reduce the manual processing of ‘data’ and other actions. You decide what you want to automate, for example I might decide that I need to update a database when someone fills in a form on my website. Normally, I’d get the information by email and then copy and paste it into my database, but ITTT automates the task, leaving me with precious time to do something more interesting instead.
This blog began life way back in the dim and distant t’Internet past of 2006, that’s 9 years ago! Over that time it has gone through many different iterations and taken several different turns; in short it’s ‘lived’ a life that is as full of vagaries as that of the average human bean.
Self presentation is another of the skills that underpins social intelligence. It is made up of a variety of factors that include such things as charisma, assertiveness, self confidence and self control. However, as Daniel Goleman points out self presentation without the necessary substance to back it up is no substitute for skills and expertise. In other words, you have to walk the walk as well as talk the talk …..!
Synchrony is a wonderful word that has a melodic tone to it, it even sounds rich on the tongue when you say it. Yet, it’s a word (and a concept) that most of us are unfamiliar with. In simple terms synchrony is just another word for ‘coordination’, but as with everything to do with business and mentoring, it has a much richer meaning too.
St. Valentine may be horrified by the cherubs touting candy, flowers or jewelry. The overemphasis of eros, or romantic love, may have merged out of rampant marketeering. Between Christmas and Easter, after all, is a lot of retail silence. In modern society, with women marrying later, and partners divorcing earlier – not waiting for children to grow up – does love still exist?
I’ve been working online for many years and during that time I have come across so many people selling the idea that I can make money while I sleep through ‘passive income’. To be honest, I already do a lot of what they suggest works and I make a very decent income as a result of it. But … and it’s a big but, the phrase ‘passive income’ just doesn’t do it for me. Why? Because it’s anything but passive, and today I thought I’d weigh in to the argument and share the reasons why I know there is no such thing as passive income.
