I did a little experiment this morning. I uploaded a 40 second video of Mylixia dancing to Michael Jackson’s Bad to Facebook. It was a post to encourage people interested in League of Legends to check out his teaching stream. It was deleted – copyrighted content. I could appeal under fair use but it proves […]
I just started playing League of Legends, a game I wanted to play for awhile and I enjoy watching others play. I avoided it because the community is known to be very toxic and I do not have the patience for that type of immature behavior. In the end, it is a game. Rage at […]
I just finished editing a video (it’s encoding). “My time” is when my house is quiet. Catching up on my RSS feeds, I saw this article and I agree…the current model is broken and a new one needs to be implemented. People treat you the way you allow them to. Gaming companies allowed themselves, out […]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zqSnlzXcGU&feature=youtube_gdata narcissistic Off and on today I’ve been looking at the comments on this video. Even though he says he does not take requests and explained why, there are a lot people either trying to sneak and make a request or making suggestions on how he “could” take requests. They don’t care about what he […]
Have you ever wanted something but, when told the amount of work it would take to achieve it, you decided you did not want it “that bad”? I have. An example, when I was younger I wanted to be a doctor, until I realized how long I would have to go to school, and how I most likely would still worry about my patients even though my shift was over. I enjoy helping people but that was too much of an investment for me, so I left it alone.
Everyday I see people who want to have millions of people reading their site or using their apps, but do not want to put in the work to achieve that success. They think they can spend a couple of hours a day maximum and have a site that everyone wants to read.
Let’s look at what it really takes to have a successful site.
Social media makes it very easy to meet people. Networking can be very valuable to entrepreneurs. Unfortunately, the term “friend” is overused and the meaning of “friends” has become diluted.
For people who want a successful career, surrounding yourself with people with similar maturity and experience levels is crucial for success. The people who are serious about obtaining the quality of life they have goals for do this naturally. The people closest to them have similar goals and interests that bond them.
Social media makes it easy to become friends with people who will distract your attention to almost guarantee you will not reach your goals. If you are a parent, it’s like your child hanging around the “wrong” group of kids….can you relate to that?
I often say, “mo money, mo problems” and people usually respond with, “problems I’d love to have”. I chuckle when they say this because it is clear they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. It is also clear, if they had money and fame, they wouldn’t have it for long.
The other day I wrote an article about truly being productive: making the right business decisions to reach your goals. Quite a few people asked me, “Tyme, couldn’t Marvin work out a deal with Apple?” and theoretically, it makes sense does not it? Apple users are loyal, Marvin has the following…why not? Let’s look at the situation more carefully.
The internet, in addition to social media tools, makes it much easier for businesses to have direct conversations with their clients, customers, etc. The tools are available for business owners to easily keep those interested in their offerings up to date on new features, content, sales, share interesting items, and receive feedback on their product or service. Praise is great but sometimes the feedback will be negative. How do you handle negative feedback?
I had a conversation the other day on Twitter about it being okay to make mistakes. I honestly do not understand the logic in thinking it is okay to screw up. Sure, mistakes will happen but why make mistakes if they are avoidable? You see the person was saying that it was wrong to prevent error and okay to make mistakes.
Yes, mind-blowing. I’m going to talk about why that is complete bull.
