KNOW WHAT TO DO: HOW TO OPERATE YOUR BUSINESS ON A DAILY

Come in We're Awesome Sign

“Making moves.”


daily grind

When you are working in your business on a daily basis there are so many things that take place which make it hard for you to operate. There are these unexpected problems that will arise and how you respond to them will determine how well your business operates. People just think you build it, they show up, you make money, and that’s it. But you have to be able to harness skills to make yourself last over the long haul. And in order to do that you have to acknowledge the strengths and weaknesses, as well as the opportunities and threats to your business.

adjust to change

When the society around you is changing, make sure you can adjust to the changes. One of the ways to do this when you look at how fast food restaurants have Uber car services delivering food. How did they know to get themselves involved in this space? But most of all, why aren’t more small businesses using this ability? And that is the problem with so many small businesses, they don’t shift when they should. By the time they do, it’s too late. And they are usually last to the party. Which is shocking considering that they are able to shift quicker than a big company because they are smaller and have less people who are dictating.

understand your base and bases

People need to be able to look around and say to themselves, I have this aging base, but they are still a base. How do I reach them? Is the same method of reaching consistent or has it changed? But you also have to acknowledge the fact that a new generation comes up and your base usually starts to pass away. And if you are still alive when this happens you have to understand the new base. And people get set into a way and they have a hard time shifting. So what happens is what usually happens. A small business goes out of business, even the ones who have been around for such a long time.

upgrade

It can cost you money, sometimes a lot of money, but you have to keep up with the change in times. There are small businesses, like restaurants, that have been in business for decades that still don’t have a website. They just rely on word of mouth. That is not a smart move in today’s society when so many people get referred based on an internet find. So this smells danger for a business. If you are a business that sells a product, like once again , fast food, upgrade the inside. What was considered good for the past might look less appealing into the future. Adjust to the changes around you and know when to react and how to react.

REDUNDANT LIFE: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN CAREER IS TOO ROUTINE

Two Brown and Blue Ceramic Mugs

“Same ole same ole.”


daily routine

When on the job, and you feel like it’s becoming a redundant task, switch it up. Because if you start to get that feeling of, “Oh, this again,” you’ll lose the respect for what you do. And if you’re doing something you love, you never want to lose respect. Because then you start to put out material that is garbage. So what you must do is reinvent yourself so that you are forced to take a step back and go hard again. But why do people get into a routine and it just becomes that in their lives.

monday – friday

Get up, go to work, put for a few hours, take a lunch, work some more, go home, eat, sleep; do it all again. Throughout this time you never change up what you are doing, so you become annoyed with the process. How about getting up exercising, walk to work, eat through lunch. Get everything done early, so you can head out early. Switch up the style because you will get bored quick. Or better yet, challenge yourself to bring in new methods of business to increase your odds of a raise.

what are you doing

The reason for the routine feeling may be linked to the fact that you need a new job. The current job you are working may have ran its course. And now you need a shift of focus in life. Because the job you currently have might be holding you back from doing more. And since it may be hard to find a job, it wouldn’t hurt to try your hand at an outside income to keep your mind in another direction. Even if you make a small amount of money, it’s a little bit more extra on top of your day job.

BRING ME YOUR TIRED, YOUR POOR, YOUR HUDDLED MASSES, YEARNING TO BE FREE

Image result for us flags

“People died for rights to be and stay protected.”


For the longest throughout American history we have always had people coming into this country from some place else. They arrive to escape war, famine, poverty, and religious persecution. America is just that place where they can be themselves without fear of persecution. America is that country where their hard work and determination will speak for how far they’ll go in life. But my question to you is have America, or are we starting to lose the allure about this country? Are we becoming what all these other nations have been which brought people here? If so, why have we changed or why are we changing?

In my opinion, we have not fully changed, but we are changing as a nation. The image of your children coming to this country pursuing their endeavors is diminishing because the people who have been here for so long feel slighted. Their feelings are that if these groups continue to flock over here then what is left for them. But if this new group just emerged, Image result for us immigrantshow is it possible that they have replaced you? They can’t replace you if you are already here working. But they do replace you, and part of that is not necessarily because jobs are leaving the country. One aspect has to do with politics. The political landscape in America plays in a role in their success.

You might ask how; how does politics play a role? Because they don’t look at America as Democrat or Republican. To them, it is a land of great opportunity despite whose in power. They understand that American Related imagepoliticians are policy makers not job creators. So they’ll only make it easier or harder for an organization’s ability to hire. Meanwhile American born citizens are looking for a party to make their lives better. Hilary was supposed to make life better. Then some say Trump is the winner, he’ll fix it. But in reality neither will. They just create the policy for you to make your own life better. So immigrants understand they must work and not sit back waiting for work to come to them. They go out and create opportunity.

Another aspect of why immigrants are more successful than Americans is because they also are willing to learn the new thing in our society that is where success lies. Meaning, if tech is the new America, then it’s tech they learn. We, being born here, say we prefer the same old method because we don’t want to learn something new. We get complacent where they don’t. Mainly because complacency where they come from is complete failure. And, they have fought so hard to get here, why. Why spend years getting here, just to be lazy when you get here. There is no expectation of being handed anything, just move out the way and let me create my own lane.

See, in the end, people yearning for freedom is what makes this country great. Because in return, they contribute on such a large scale. In the medical field today, so many Indian Americans dominate the field. Not because they are born that way. They are raised to pursue careers in areas Image result for american identitywhere people are needed and where there is job security. Meaning a great garbage truck driver can be replaced, but a great physician can’t. People need doctors, but you can remove the human element eventually from picking up trash. So in opinion, we should always remain open to those legally going through the process of being an American. Because once we lose that, we lose part of this nation’s identification.

RUNNING ON E: EVER WISH YOU HAD MORE TIME FOR YOU

Image result for RUNNING ON E

“Ever need a filler up?”


Have you ever came home at the end of the day and your body was exactly on E. You wake up in the morning on full and by the days end you have nothing to give. Some of us even wake up with equal or less than half a tank of gas. What are you to do to when you have such a lack of energy? More so, how do most people come to this point in their lives of little to no energy on a daily basis? It can be a multitude of issues ranging from children to employment. It can be running an errand or constantly worrying about bills that need to be paid. But for the most part it is children and employment.

Starting with children, children are an adjustment to people’s lives that forces you to restructure your whole entire existence. Especially when the children are so young. When a child is an infant, your every moment you are free must be spent with them to build a form of familiarity. So not only are you trying to balance a job, but you need to spend unpaid free time with a child. You’re feeding them, playing with them, rocking them to sleep. And if they wake up crying you must be the one putting them back to sleep. Is there any other area where people feel they are running on empty? And there is, it’s from the previous paragraph: employment.

When you get up in the morning from the sound of that alarm, the first thing you think is same shit different day. Some of us like I said before are waking up to half a tank of energy. Others are close to E, yet they have to find some form of energy to raise themselves to half a tank or more. So how is that possible? How is it possible that we operate on such a low amount of energy and still make it to work and perform our task? Some people say luck while others feel it is a blessing. But I think it tends to be more than that. It is survival and you’ll be surprised the things you can do, especially in desperate situations. So how do you change course? How do you shift your life so that you can operate on full or close to it?

A lot of us operating on low energy has to do with the quality of life. People with a poor quality of life typically operate on lower levels of energy. But the desperation to survive keeps them going. Hanging on by a thread, but nonetheless still going. Now is that anyway to live, no, but for some it’s the only way to live. Or it may be the only way they know how to live. But it is going to take more than just what you know, to live. Like in a previous topic, I stated tapping into your inner talent. That requires self awareness; the self awareness which will take you from the running on E feeling. But tapping into inner you requires years of work, skill, keeping your eyes open and watching society around you. Nature will show you the way and your feeling on running out of energy will show you how to slow things down.

GARY V EFFECT: HOW ENTREPRENEURSHIP HAS GROWN IN POPULARITY IN RECENT YEARS

Image result for gary vaynerchuk ART

“What’s hustle to you?”


The above animation is of CEO of Vayner Media Gary Vaynerchuk. He gained wide popularity over the internet for his Daily V and many other web content over YouTube. And since the launch of his popularity he has since been seen as a motivational speaker. Even though he doesn’t look at himself as motivational speaker, he has inspired a wide range of people to embark on their own business endeavors. His famous quotes are known throughout the web whether it’s him telling people to, “Get shit done,” or “Don’t watch three seasons of Lost, and then wonder why nothing is happening in your life.” Now, to be clear, Gary V is not the first person to motivate people to be entrepreneurs, yet he is one of the most popular.

What is it about what Gary says to people that resonates so deeply? Well, the most obvious reason he resonates with people is because of his success. He has taken people on a journey through his life as he has become successful over the years. It’s quite inspirational when you can look at a person’s transformation over the years and actually have video content to track the person. We always say that people had an easy ride, but when you can see the climb it makes that person much more appealing. But there is no success without the work put into the climb. And that is what brings me to my next reason why people connect to Gary.

He gives it to people straight, in a way that everyone can understand. Usually, people who give advice give these very generic answers. Answers that don’t have much substance. Or if they do have substance it requires you to buy their book or attend their seminar. Receiving free content that gives an insight into the world from a person who has taken the leap of faith into society is well worth listening to. So what is it; what has made people lean in the direction toward entrepreneurship? There are a few reasons as to why this could be happening in our society.

For starters, there are so many people in the world who hate their jobs. They wish they could be doing anything other than what they are doing at the moment. So opening a side business to make a little money outside of the daily grind is worth it. But mainly people have become attracted to entrepreneurship because the state of employment has shifted. So many people are out of work, and for those working you’re still barely able to sustain financially. Unlike the past generations, the millennial generation and beyond won’t work a job for 30 plus years and retire in that same place. In America today, working the same job for five years is a stretch.

So in the end, the allure of being an entrepreneur has people ready to dive right in. The only downside, is that most don’t have the stomach to deal with the adversity or daily fight of trying to make a living from absolutely nothing. Truth is, most will give up within their first year of pursuing. In the words of Gary V, “Most people are wired to lose and conform.” That’s life, and it will always be that way. But for the few who can stomach the grind, they make out on top financially and in happiness.

I’MPERFECTIONS: CAPITALIZING OFF OF YOUR WEAKNESS

Image result for weakness

“Is your strength convertible into a strength?”


We all have them, and it is usually our Achilles heel. And what is that kink in our system, it’s a weakness. That’s right, we all have a weakness that makes us who we are in life. But, is there any way that one can take that weakness and flip it around into a strength. I look at my life with strengths that I have as well as weaknesses. Could I potentially use some of those weaknesses as a strength; possibly? What are some examples of strengths in a person’s life that can come from previously being a weakness?

One example of a strength that comes from a weakness is kindness. You wouldn’t think that could be seen as weakness. But it is used against people all the time in society. But how can you make that a strength? Well, if you are an overly kind person, you’re more likely to be compassionate. You would fit well in a career where people are down on their luck and could use a helping hand. You’re able to connect with someone on a level from a nonjudgmental place.  The last thing that person needs is someone looking down on them because of their position in life.

Another weakness is someone who is a procrastinator in life. For whatever reason for being this type of person, you have this as a personal trait. But how do you make this into a strength. People who are procrastinators put things off, usually until the last minute. To make this into a strength, first figure out why you procrastinate. Usually people do so because they are afraid of the outcome of their work or they don’t know how to move on to the next thing. So they just linger on with what they are doing now. This is something I have been known to do in my own life. But, while you procrastinate, you get time to think about the importance of what it is you’re pursuing in life. You procrastinate because whatever you’re doing, it is not important to you. Because if it was, you would get things done. This thinking makes you access your life. And it makes you see if what you want you really want.

You see, in the end, things can flip to be in your favor. It’s all about how much you are willing to put into the flip. Just always remember that your life is whatever you make it. You create your own luck in life.

REPETITION: HOW ROUTINES CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THAT SUCCESS

Image result for routine

“What is your success regimen?”


Some of us think about a daily regimen as getting up going to work each and every day. But what about how we go about attaining our success in the world. Successful people all have a regimen, and it is very stringent to their daily lives. It may consist of them performing a certain action or eating certain foods to start your day. Others include a workout in the morning or a verbal ritual. I myself have a daily routine that consists of me keeping in line with my daily success. I usually take the same route to and from work everyday. I even keep the same songs in rotation on my phone. Why is this important to have a routine everyday?

People who typically have a daily routine to keep themselves on track are more focused because they have this ritual. When you have this routine that leads you into your day of work, it makes your work more important and creates a sense of urgency. Well why does it create urgency? It’s because once you do the same thing over and over again, with more and more consistency each time, you start to develop success from this. In addition, you are not thinking also about the time that is passing because you’re so into your work.

Are there any reasons besides keeping in line with success for why you would have a daily routine. Another reason is that some people need a routine as it pertains to their stability as well. A stable person is someone who has a sustainable routine that keeps them mentally straight. And it’s that mental focus that puts them on the path to the success. So, where does it come from? Is there a certain group of people out there who share this trait? Where does this spark to have a daily routine toward success come from? In the end, we all have something we perform on a daily basis to get us charged in the morning. Whatever gets you started on your day is up to you, just as long as the end result is your success.
