What to do Next?

I met this girl, with a group of friends, who is Italian she told me that she works at a school and teaches English as an extracurricular activity, in Italy. the whole thing about his is that she speaks very bad broken English and was not to often but still needed to ask her fluent English, Italian friends what certain words were in English.

she lives in a small town and lives with her parents but she is able to make regular trips to London and is able to take prolonged holiday (after much saving, of course) in the south and Central America. I live in

I live in London and don’t earn very much compared to my expenditure, but I would love to learn to speak another language and I don’t seem to find any problem with entering and living and working there on the gov.uk website.

she told me “when I look at a book I know English but when I speak it I don’t know it” I can speak English and  I don’t know how it works but when I look at a book I know I can do the same.

For the past year, I have been learning Spanish and have invested time into associating with Spaniards and I want to do that. I want to live in another country, speak a different language

I am a single male with no debt, no one dependent on me and with a British passport.

I want to live in different country, speak a different language, and support a different community.

Why?

Because it is Possible!

Logan Paul, Really?

This man who has seemed to kick start the internet with his enthusiastic charm and his subversive realism seems to have a bit of a dark side. Don’t get me wrong I love his energy but I don’t like his underlying attitude. Allow me to explain.

The Colour Blindness Video

This for many who have color, finally seeing the wonderful world for what it is. But in Logan’s video, there seems to be a number of inconsistencies.

  1. His friends and the people that he lives with had no idea that he had colour-blindness. They seemed to all not know, and I, being in a family that had members that were colour-blind, know that when a person has colour-blindness, that person would make crucial errors in judgment in styles of dress and clothing and that of what matches and what doesn’t. So in simple terms, he would put on the wrong thing, and he would be made fun for it. It is true that people can go for years without knowing that they have this dysfunction. But that his friends never even thought is a possibility, that is a bit doubtful.
  2. He made distinct almost put on statements to try and prove that he had colour-blindness like he said “Maverick” the featured parrot of his vlogs was “a yellow bird” the way he made his statement seemed really put on and then the commotion of him going to see and then the reveal that his bird then, in fact, had multiple colours. This seemed very staged and inauthentic.
  3. In all subsequent videos since that video, I have not seen once that he has put on the same shades that he obviously would give him the gift of colorful sight. Yes, he dose where other shades and they could be custom made and do the job but this doesn’t seem to be the case.

Personally I believe that he is not colour blind, and this is indeed a stunt to gain views (almost 15 million at this point in time) money in advertising from the company that make the glasses, and the Google ad revenue, which he is making off of the fact he has a fake disability which is less than reputable if this is found to be true.

The songs that he has produced seem overly produced and corporately planned.

 

He and his brother have made a number of seemingly planned, especially after the initial success of one of Logan’s first music video “Help Me Help You.” Because then of its massive success (currently just under 50 million views) Jake Paul (Logan’s slightly more successful) decided to make one dissing everyone on YouTube obviously to capitalize on anything and everything they can, and subsequently other music videos have come out.

They seem to counteract each other and then they reconcile in another one and then or before, the make one and withhold the 2nd verse to cause controversy and draw subscribers and views to both their channel and videos. And the stupid part is that they never released the 2nd verse.

In total, they have 6 (or more I couldn’t be bothered) connected videos and other channels cashing in on the trend (RiceGum and Alissa Violet).  This has amassed in almost 150,000,000 (150 million) views a lot of click-bait money.

All in all, I like Logan, not so much Jake but I like Logan #logangforlife. But I don’t like this corporate click bait deal. They are both very successful, but really Jake get a better name than “JakePaulers”

How To wake up Early? Tips to get out of Bed When you Want!

You want to wake up early and get stuff done! Ok, How?

What are the Benefits?

First, as you are usually awake later in the morning (about 8am and 10am)  probably the rest of those around you will also be asleep, this means that you are less likely to have the distraction that you would have waking up as you have been, enabling you to be more productive, be more focused, plan your week exercise amongst a multitude of other things that you would usually be distracted from.

Second, studies have shown that there are direct links between waking up early and decreced stress. This makes sense as you are able to get the important things done first, so that when you are tired you wont procrastinate these necessities till later. A byproduct of this is that you free up space in your mind so you are more able to take on the day.

Third, and this is the most important in my mind, the first few hours you are awake you are at your days peak of creativity, this means the things that you do at this time of the day will be the best quality. Rising early has been part of the routine of the worlds greatest Minds, Athlete’s and Artists, even though we may feel groggy.

So, How to do it?

  • Have clear goals in mind. If you do end up being awake in the early part of the day and you are wondering “what should I do?” then chances are this routine will not last at all and you will end up not setting your alarm and reverting to your old ways. Some of the things that you could do is; start a blog or personal notes, start an online business, exercise, meditate, reading, or it could be all of these things each given their own morning. Even with these things be very clear and specific, if you want to exercise make sure you know what you want, start small don’t expect these changes to come over night and by the time you wake up. may be something like: “I will jog for 15 minutes and then have a shower and breakfast.”
  • Go to bed Earlier. If you want to wake up earlier this doesn’t mean you don’t need the same amount of sleep to function, you still do. So start by setting you alarm earlier in 5-15 minutes increments, depending on your need and circumstances, and every week wake up 5-15 minutes more than you did the last week until you are waking up at the time you need. Even if you are not sleepy go to bed earlier and read, meditate, or the time you would miss speaking about your day or concerns with your spouse use this time wisely, but make sure that you do something that doesn’t involve light (like TV, Mobile Phones games, Netflix, or anything that will keep you awake)
  • keep your Alarm out of Reach. If you can reach your alarm from you bed, even from a stretch, you most likely will hit snooze or tern off the alarm completely. so move it far away, preferably walking distance, so you have to get up. You will hate this but it will get you up in the morning.
  • Ice Splash. If you hate the last one you will definitely hate this one. Jump in a cold shower, or to ease yourself in to it splash ice cold water on to your face. this will definitely wake you up, giving you a shock to the system forcing your body to be alive.

These are the best ways I have found to get out of the bed in the morning.

Yours Truly

Blogging! What is it?

I want to start a blog. Great! What do I do? Where do I start?

I am pretty new to all this but I know I want to do it! this is why I’ve  started. In the book “Linchpin” by Seth Godin it says to “Start Blogging.” So I found WordPress.com and designed a simple page and here you are as the reader. As far as content goes since I have started right out of reading a book that I really enjoyed I find that the ideas for new content comes pretty quickly. I am actually impressed

SEE SETHS BLOG…

I think that staying curious and always learning is key to this.

What is Blogging?

Blogging is not writing. Wikipedia gives this definition “A blog (a truncation of the expression “weblog“)[1] is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (“posts”).”

If this is true you can write about what you want you don’t have to be specific. That probably wont be very profitable, unless you are really exciting like someone who travel’s a lot, like some of these peoples:

  1. Nomadic Matt
  2. The Poor Traveler
  3. Expert Vagabond
  4. Among Others

I am not a very interesting person (That is just me you are probably much more interesting than I am), so people like me have to talk about something that we love and that we know a lot about. I am reading about success and starting a businesses, and at the moment I love this topic and I want to write about that. This may change.

But I am not doing this for money, at the moment. I want to do this to be something that I love. A gift to the world something that is genuine.

If you want to be profitable, you attitude will need to a second job trying to drive traffic to your blog, to create revenue. Please check out this video:

have fun blogging.

Your’s truly

The New Flagship Phone.

Iphone, Samsung, and that’s about it when people think of the best phones but is it really?

I in the past 2 years bought about 5 phones to try them out. The iPhone I got & didnt get on with so gave it to a friend (who gets on with it fine). the Samsung to replace the iPhone (that broke). The Samsung to replace the Samsung but that one fried. then a friend was getting rid of an oversized Chinese phone called an “Inew” (worst decision of my life), and the next phone will blow your mind.

WileyFox.

I bought this phone on a recommendation of a friend the model he had which was the even more affordable model which was the WileyFox “Spark” first generation and is was £89.99 (what a flipping bargain), he let me have a go although it was a bit laggy the workability of the phone and the key features really impressed me. He recommended that I look at the “Swift” was the model, as it was a little more expensive, but you were paying for the more powerful version so there would be little, if not, no lag what so ever.

So I had a look around.

the price of the “Swift” was £129.99 at the time from the WileyFox website, which I was totally fine with paying, a phone that cheep that offered what I dose, it was definitely a bargain. But I looked on Amazon and the seller on Amazon had the same phone for £30 less than what the sight offered. from then on I was sold. I wanted this phone from only a 5 minute trial of a supposedly worse phone (which, by the way, was fantastic), a scan of the specs and a glance at the WileyFox website and then Amazon.

This phone was good, and I don’t even have it in my hands yet. So I just had to have one.

Then It Arrived.

When it arrived in its stunning Orange and Black box, it came with the highest quality charging cable I have ever received with a phone, a decent set of in-ear headphones, the phone came with a screen protector on the phone (although there were bubbles on it, this was by far the worst part of my experience with the phone as of yet and there was never anything else I could put fault with it), and then the phone itself. They really did love their product, No coners were cut, and the price it definitely was not reasonable, they obviously just care about the product and giving the very best to their customers. the money to them is second to that.

…9 Months Later. 

I have had this masterpiece for, give or take, 9 months and it still runs as smoothly as the day I opened the box. I love this company and I keep recommending this company to all who ask.

WileyFox. The Company. 

WileyFox is a British company founded in 2015 with the HQ in London. Initially, it used the Android derivative “Cyanogen OS” which has now been discontinued and has been replaced with the most up to date Android system (7.1.1).

Blogging · Coffee · success

Don’t Work, Do Gift.

Work? what is it?

If you go looking for the definition of work on Google you will find it say’s

  1. Activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a result.
  2. A task or tasks to be undertaken.

These are correct answers to the question, but wrong to how you should work!

The real definition of work is:

  1. Something that has to be done to survive
  2. To accomplish something
  3. a service
  4. changing the world
  5. or changing someone else’s world

Working in a coffee shop is easy to do. You take an order, convert that into coffee and then that converts into money you have earnt for the company.

That’s all needs to be done. but there are other jobs on top of that to keep the people coming back. Cleaning, being presentable, the layout, ordering the supplies and so on.

An Idiot can do that but they hate their job, they don’t take it seriously. They do what they are told, they get paid and then they go home.

Millions of people all over the world want coffee, and they go to a coffee shop to get away from distractions, either to work or mental and emotional trauma on their own or with friends. they need a good service.

In most of the café industry being “pleasant” is required but those working in the shops only give the bare minimum.

What Really Makes a Difference. 

Being genuine is something that simply cannot be faked. As humans, we crave interaction and the knowledge that we are cared about, the idea stressed in Seth Godin’s “Linchpin” is that we should never be a cog just doing a job, we should be doing thing’s because we care about what we do and how it affects other people.

The coffee shop scenario, as in all jobs, there are only 2 types of workers

  1. those who care
  2. and those who don’t

those that care I have described above so let’s see what someone who cares does

Give A Gift?

People who genuinely care about someone do things without being asked. when was the last time you asked someone out because the follow the rules and do what they are told? You would only extend an invitation to someone for a drink or a date because they have done things that they weren’t asked because they valued you enough to do something out of the ordinary without a price-tag or something in return.

This makes you value a person and want to associate with them. the same goes for a business or a service, so give a gift, do something not because it gets their custom but because you value them.

If someone is looking around, offer them help.

if someone walks in with a baby, ask if they want a high chair.

if a group gathered around a table with things on it from the last customers, stop what you are doing and clear that crap!

Like we said earlier on people come to get distracted from their distractions. Do not be one of their problems added on, be the gift that takes away their problems for a while

The coffee shop is the new bar.

Your’s Truely
