I found this post on LoseIt, a Subreddit on Reddit (a really helpful place for anyone trying to lose weight, btw) and I just loved the idea of the 3-tiered goals, aswell as the other things she, the OP, wrote in it. So I thought I'd share it with you, maybe it's of help for someone else, too :)...
An awareness thread?
I know. We‘re here to talk and discuss about entrepreneurship. The Fastlane. The Unscripted life.
Beneath all that, underlying like a red thread binding everything together, in my opinion, is one thing: value.
It‘s value, that we...
I came along this TIFU (Today I f*cked up) post on Reddit and thought I'd share it on here.
Here's an excerpt:
"...Let's start with a description of me when I was 20. It seemed only yesterday when I was sure I was going to change the world. People loved me, and I loved people. I was...
If you're anything like me, when you have something you are really excited about, you want to talk about it with others.
No matter if it's a great movie that held an insane amount of tension throughout it, an awesome book that drew you in from its first page on, a new song that your friend or...
Did you ever get cold feet?
Oh boy, do I feel that cursor hovering above the <- on the top-left of your browser tab, waiting impatiently for that moment that you just click on that.
I'm not going to sell you some warm fleecy socks now to get rid of your cold feet during that...
If you never heard about NaNoWriMo or the National Novel Writing Month, here‘s the website‘s description of it:
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.
On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a...
Just came across this great piece from zenpencils and thought I'd share it with you guys and gals, hoping some of you may get something out of it :)
I think most people are prone to comparing themselves with others from time to time.
Just take the example of this forum. Yes, we'd love to be...
When I first read about that thing, that people seemingly do online, I was a bit perplexed.
Apparently, some people in the wide sea of the world wide web like to write things like
Oh, I am so OCD.
Below an Instagram image of their wardrobe, sorted by color.
It seems like a lot of...
A lot of you have probably heard of the following experiment in some form or another, since it gained a lot of popularity.
What am I talking about?
The Marshmallow Experiment
This tasty sounding experiment was done in the 60s by Stanford professor Walter Mischel, in a row of psychological...
Hey guys and gals! :)
I know it's been a while.
Personal life and working on a new product kept me pretty busy lately.
Another reason that I faded more into the background reading is that I don't have much advice to give lately, since I'm just starting out with this product, something I never...
Well, it's actually my 2nd or even 3rd business (if you count my beatmaking & -selling as a business), but I like to call it my 1st one, because it's the first business I started after finishing TMF.
Anyway, it failed.
It would feel kinda selfish to keep the lessons I learnt from that first...
If children grew up according to early indications, we should have nothing but geniuses. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Tell a child about something that's difficult to achieve and he or she will tell you why it is possible to do it. This kid will eventually find a way to achieve whatever that...
Put one crab in a bucket and it can climb out of that bucket. No, it will climb out of it.
Now put two crabs in that same bucket. If one of those crabs tries to climb out of it, the other one will pull it back in. None of them will ever escape the bucket.
The possibility of escaping that damn...
@Vigilante asked me in another thread (this one) if I'd like to dive deeper into the story I told in that thread. That's what I want to do now in here.
What follows is a personal story, that I'd like to share with you guys. Vig's comment to my post in the above mentioned thread made me realise...
What is our imagination?
Seriously. Did you ever ask yourself why you imagine things the way you do?
Before I'll go into my personal definition of imagination, let me tell you a breathe-taking story first.
A story that I only like to call "The Broccoli Incident".
My whole life I lived with...
That's probably the biggest desire we, the people on here, have on our mind every day.
Thanks to MJ's book and this forum, we learnt to value our time as what it is:
the one most important thing in life.
Time to be with your family and friends.
Time to laugh with the...
No question that there are a lot of big companies out there that do a great job at marketing their brand and their product(s) - and then there is PornHub.
PornHub is absolutely amazing at marketing - they managed to build a freaking porn site into a worldwide known brand with a great image...
Since Social Media is a big part of most businesses' marketing strategies, I think it's worth a look on how some of the big brands are totally rocking social media. I love how some of the biggest brands on earth still reply to tweets and facebook posts (of course it's their social media managers...
Before I start, I gotta thank @Damian Pros for mentioning this topic in his AMA, that was the first time I ever heard about this topic. I think everyone on here can benefit from this.
Recent researches show that powerful and effective leaders not only share similar mindsets, but also similar...
Is the way you perceive things holding you back?
I truly believe that the outcome of a situation depends on how you perceive the situation in the first place.
What that means?
Good that you ask. Let's dive into this in the following paragraphs.
Most of us on here know about the importance...
