1 Critic Can Stand 100 Stories Higher Than 1000 Good Comments

Posted on Saturday, January 30, 2010 in General Tips, Marketing

It’s always amazing to me how 1 critic can stand 100 stories higher than 1000 good comments… But that’s the way it is, right? Most people make negative remarks because they’re mad at themselves and its easier to point the finger at someone else than themselves. If somebody expects somebody else to bring them success, they have already failed.

What makes you happy? Think about it hard, and think it though, not just over a beer but day and night, it will come to you. Don’t be afraid to have to educate yourself a little bit to achieve this goal. Self education is the key to achieving happiness. Do that no questions.

iPhone Apps Open And Close – Help

Posted on Monday, January 18, 2010 in General Tips

The reason the apps keep opening for a second then closing is because you iPhone doesn’t think they have been ‘Authorized’. All you have to do is tell the iPhone “Hey foo these are Authorized Apps!” and to do this simply:

  1. Hook up your iPhone to your computer
  2. In iTunes (in the main menu on the top) go to Store > Authorize Computer
  3. Enter your user info and authorize the computer
  4. Sync your iPhone after you have authorized your computer – That’s it!

As soon as the Sync is done your phone should now understand that your apps are authorized and the problem should be fixed. If not please add a comment below so we can explore further.

Getting Motivated

Posted on Sunday, January 10, 2010 in General Tips

When striving for goals we quiet often get burnt out or lose motivation. An easy way to help kick you back on track into achieve your goals is to have some motivation quotes posted around various parts of yours house. Here are a few originals that I hope help.

“Talk and you shall be heard. Do and you will be respected.”
Just Relaxing is an excuse for being weak minded, and incapable of succesing.”
“95% Don’t, 5% Do, Who are you?”
“Fear is for the unsuccessful”
“Dreams become reality through hard work and dedication”

The next part (that can somtimes be the hard part) is detemining what is success for you. What is your primary goal that you plan to reach? When answering this there should be an attainable number to your goals. EX: “I want to be rich” – is a very broad goal. “I want to be rich through selling my paintings and my current goal is to sell 20 by the end of the month and 100 by the end of the year” – Now you have a dirction and attainable goals. You can now formulate a more detailed approch in reaching you goal.
