I have made two of my books available in ebook format. Do visit http://www. muscpertastsunear.tk for more details. Thank you. I was in Tagaytay for Bo Sanchez's four-day Bestselling Authors Bootcamp. He invited me to speak on eBook Publishing. Bo asked all the participants to write down on a piece of paper the titles of the books they wanted to write. Every time he'd pop that question, I'd be reminded to work on the course.
After she woke up, a woman told her husband, "I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine's day. What do you think it means? That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, she opened it - to find a book entitled "The Meaning of Dreams. Show love and give love every day. But what about being too busy all the time? The truth is if you are too busy to relax, then you are too busy.
Technology is a big culprit behind the reason why we become so busy. Just think about this: Do you remember the predictions about the paperless office and the leisure society? We are also sleeping less than we used to, down from 9 hours per day in to 6. Indeed, the benefits of the computer age can be seen everywhere except in the productivity statistics, because we are inventing new ways of making ourselves busy.
When people invite me to give a talk I pull out my Iphone, check over my calendar and see my white spaces occupied with activities.
People are impressed. They see how busy I am. In fact there is a running rumor going around the corporate world that it takes them one year in advance to be able to get a booking from me. This is of course grossly exaggerated but it does take quite a few months lead time to have me schedule a date for a speaking or a training engagement. And then I go home, exhausted and wondered how I could have packed so many activities in so short a time.
But this is not an exclusive condition for me. The obsession with "busyness" can be seen in the way the work ethic has invaded childhood.

Children must be kept busy at all limes. As a result, they are becoming overscheduled and we are creating a cohort that cannot think for itself, a generation of passive, risk-averse citizens and comfortably numb consumers with almost no imagination or self-reliance.
Children today are expected to do so many hours of backbreaking homework. And then rush off somewhere to do music lessons.
We’ll be back soon!
And parents today feel that if they do not push their kids hard enough they may not succeed. Watch what happens when summer season comes. Parents get paranoid and they feel nervous seeing their children idle.
And so they enroll them in summer courses, sports programs, summer programs just to keep them busy. Is busyness now an important element to life and living? Could we not get used to moments of quietness so we can pull our acts together? As I ask these questions I am actually asking myself. In a nutshell, humankind is producing an excess of stuff. The amount of new information we produce today is estimated to be around 2 billion bytes annually.
That's very roughly 2 billion bytes or about 20 billion copies of a typical thick book.
The average large corporation similarly experiences a doubling of the amount of information it produces annually. Information is no longer power; power lies in the ability to attain and maintain attention.
I am not an alarmist but what I want people to know is that the pace of life will continue to increase and we need to learn how to be quiet. This is why my first hour of the day is spent on quiet time. Prayer and meditation of Scripture to bring sanity to my being. Busyness may not be a good thing when it is done in excess. Learn to be quiet. Learn to spend time in solitude as I certainly will this coming holiday season. So dont just do something, stand there or better still, sit down and be quiet.
Here is an old and sobering story: When a victorious Roman general arrived back in Rome, he was given a hero's welcome and a triumphant parade of victory. But a philosopher was hired to ride beside him in the victory parade. As the victor acknowledged the cheers of the crowd, the philosopher kept whispering in his ear: "You are mortal.
You are mortal. Our country has gone through many kinds of crisis.

Crisis that are both man made and considered acts of God. Which in my opinion is a very bad term. Why is it that we call a sad natural catastrophe an act of god and then when times are good and victorious we credit it to ourselves? Maybe this is something we should think about. Anyways We have a very strange way of getting through the different crises that have came our way.
A few days after typhoon Ondoy, I joined a relief operations group and we rode a small Bangka and visited the far places of the flooded areas in order to distribute relief goods.
Guess what I saw?
Water that has gone beyond house roofs with people practically staying on top of their roofs yet you still see a smile on their faces. They say that as a people we are resilient and I think we are.
But being resilient alone does not make us stronger. We need to evaluate the experience, learn from it and be determined to prevent the same problem from occurring in the future. This is why this material I got from the Internet really made me laugh.
Somebody says: My wife suggested a book for me to read to enhance our relationship. It's titled: 'Women are from Venus, Men are Wrong'. It doesn't have to be this way. Takes a lot of discipline to have a very successful marriage. I am so excited to speak on marriage this afternoon at St. Scholastica Westgrove. Have had years of this in actual experience and is included in my bio-data. While I value the importance of being prudent and prepared, some people would always go to option 2 when they have not exhausted their efforts into their original plan.
Statesman and businessman George Shultz says: 'The minute you start talking about what you are going to do if you lose, YOU have lost.
Takes a lot of discipline FrancisKong. Do not take this material seriously. This is part sarcasm part plain humor.
Following this material will be totally disastrous so take this as something humorous and again, do not take it seriously. Here is the material. Indecision is the key to flexibility.

There is absolutely no substitute for a genuine lack of preparation. Happiness is merely the remission of pain. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
The facts, although interesting, are irrelevant. The careful application of terror is also a form of communication.
Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world. Things are more like they are today then they have ever been before. Anything worth fighting for is worth fighting dirty for. Thats bad. Everything should be made as simple as possible but no simpler. Friends may come and go, but enemies accumulate.

Identify anything causing a regular, repeated drag or drain on your time. These might include technology, systems, workflow or people, for example. One by one, take these things and fix them, address them, or change them to free up more time. I need this.

Anger separates us from those we want to be near. But the givers, they sleep better. Study Jesus in the New Testament and find out how he discipled a handful of rowdy disciples and had them achieve great things that turned the whole world upside down. Factor this in! All rights reserved.
