The Rule of 90 to 10 percent that Affects Your Whole Life

The 90/10 Rule.

The 90/10 Rule is one of the most helpful concepts for life and time management. According to this principle: 10 percent of your activities will account for 90 percent of your results. This can change the way you set goals forever! (this post is by Jeff Hunter)

90/10 Rule In Action

If you have a list of ten items to accomplish, only one of those items will turn out to be worth more than the other nine items put together.

If you have a list of ten items to accomplish, only one of those items will turn out to be worth more than the other nine items put together.

The sad fact is that most people procrastinate on the top 10 percent of items. However, these are the most valuable and important – the “vital few”.  Instead, they busy themselves with the least important 90 percent, the “trivial many,” which contribute very little to their success.

Delegate, Automate, or Stop Doing it

How To Apply The 90/10 Rule

Here’s what you should do in order to effectively apply the 90/10 rule to goal setting and to your overall productivity.

First, take a piece of paper and write down ten goals. Then ask yourself: If you could only accomplish one of the goals on that list today, which one goal would have the greatest positive impact on your life?

After completing this exercise, your choice will determine the most important goal. Achieving this goal will help you much more than any of the other goals on your list combined.  Ensure that you continue to work at the goal which you’ve chosen as the most valuable all the time.

This does NOT mean the other 90% of your work goes away, but you must make three choices for the other 90%:

A) Delegate it
B) Automate it
C) Stop doing it

Accomplish The Biggest Task First

Often, you may see people who appear to be busy all day long but seem to accomplish very little. This is almost always the case as they are busy working on tasks that are of low value. On the other hand, they are procrastinating on the one activity that could make a real difference to their companies and to their careers.

The most valuable task you can do each day is often the hardest and most complex. The payoff and rewards will make completing them truly worth it.

Before you begin work, always ask yourself, “Is this task in the top 10 percent of my activities or in the bottom 90 percent?”

The rule to adhere to here is: resist the temptation to clear up small things first!

Choosing to start your day working on low-value tasks, will cause you to soon develop the habit of always starting and working on low-value tasks.

 

Always Work Towards Your Main Goal

Always Work Towards Your Main Goal

Finally, let’s discuss this study that has just been done about the attitudes of rich people versus poor people in regard to goal setting. The study found that 85% of rich people have one big goal that they work on all the time.

Therefore, if you want to be wealthy, perhaps you should do what wealthy people do. Pick one big goal and work on it all the time. If you do, it will change your life.

Before we wrap up, I’d like to leave you with a thought to share with your friends and followers:

Your income right now is a result of your standards, it is not the industry, it is not the economy.” – Tony Robbins

Those are my strategies for applying the 90/10 Rule to goal setting.

My questions today are: “Have you used the 90/10 Rule for goal setting? If you have, what changes have you noticed in your life?”

How To Use 9010 Lifestyle To Achieve Success

Dreaming big dreams has always been the starting point of great success. Nothing works faster than for you to cast off your own limitations. Begin dreaming and fantasizing about the wonderful things that you can become, have, and do. Nothing is more important, and nothing works faster.

William Shakespeare wrote, “Do not be like the cat who wanted a fish but was afraid to get his paws wet.” You must be willing to take the necessary steps to achieve your goals. When you make attempts and attain the success within reach, your levels of self-esteem and self-confidence will go up immediately. You will feel empowered about yourself and your ability to deal with what happens to you. The reason why so many people accomplish so little is because they never allow themselves to take action and achieve the kind of life that is possible for them.

Theory Of Constraints

As outlined by Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox in their  “Theory of Constraints” –  is a set of tools to achieve positive change agents which can be used to manage constraints, thereby increasing profits. Thus making it possible to use this powerful principle to dream big dreams and live without limits. This is one of the greatest breakthroughs in modern thinking.

Goldratt found that in every process when seeking to accomplish any goal, there is a bottleneck or choke cord that serves as a constraint on the process. This constraint seeks to set the speed at which you achieve any particular goal. If you concentrate all of your creative energies and attention on alleviating the constraint, you can speed up the process faster than by doing any other single thing.

Allow me to illustrate using an example. Well, this is actually a true story. Imagine this! I was a very successful Project Manager for an AMAZING company. I was working 10-12 hours a day average. I was SLAVING my butt off for years and years. And I wasn’t seeing the progress of my hard work and dedication as I was doing everything in my business myself.

After working 10 – 12 hours a day for the years which ran by, I’d be exhausted. Needless to say, I was also watching my family fall apart. My stress levels were off the charts but I felt trapped. I needed my job to provide for the needs and well-being of my family but the time I was spending at my job made the home situation worse. I wanted to give up!

BUT THANK GOODNESS I DIDN’T GIVE UP!!!

My utilization of the 90/10 lifestyle has afforded me with the drive to dream big and succeed. I quit my job at that amazing company and went into business for myself. I knew that I had a great skill and was certain that after so many years of polishing my craft that I could competently handle my own business.

9010 Rule In Action

The 90/10 Rule In Action

My “Virtual Assistants” do over 90% of my work for me. No crap! No BS! No making stuff up! I literally figured out how to delegate 90% of what I did to virtual assistants and freelancers around the world. Don’t think for a minute that achieving this was an overnight achievement. There were many times I fell along the way. I went through hell out there, to get to where I am today!

I successfully launched my own business SOLELY POWERED by a 100% virtual team.

This is not an attempt at self-praise nor conceit. I’ve been humbled by the journey it took to get me here and I feel somewhat scornful when people treat me like a hero when I go to conferences now. I’m just a normal person who created a foolproof system to delegate effectively, and build an incredible virtual team!

What Are Your Constraints?

Constraints refer to the things, whether real or imagined which prevent you from achieving your goals. Therefore it is important that you identify the factors holding you back? Is it your level of education or skill? Is it your current occupation or job? Is it your current environment or level of health? Is it the situations that you are in today? What sets the pace for you achieving your goal?

Bearing in mind that learning should never stop, you can unlearn the things which debilitate your progress. It is possible to get yourself out of the situations which you have gotten yourself into, but you must be willing to identify the constraints which prevent you from seeing the silver-lining which accompany the clouds.

All in One Profit – AIOP – Review

What Is All In One Profits?

All in one profits, the underdog and sleeping goldmine that nobody has been talking about. The company has been live since 2012 and yet very few internet marketers have exploited its goodies. I can tell you for sure, nobody is more grateful than its own members.

Welcome to my straight to the point All in one profits review. I solemnly swear and promise to cut across all hype, bullshit and give you my honest opinion on this company. (by member of AIOP, internet entrepreneur, Avitus)

All in one profits is just as the name suggests, a set of all basic internet marketing tools packaged together in one bundle. That’s as layman as it can get.

If that was too vague. Here is better version.

Unlimited pro double opt in autoresponder, premium web hosting, Splash and Capture page builder, Link tracker, rotator, down line builder, internet marketing education and a 100% recurring commission business, packaged as one for a ridiculously low $11.5 per month fee. (If you stick to the end I’ll show you how to use AIOP at zero cost.)

Now, if for any reason I don’t have your full attention to this point,  here are the answers to those obvious questions you might have:

  • Yes you can host your blog on AIOP
  • Yes you can build your list using AIOP
  • Yes you can build your capture pages with AIOP,
  • Yes you can use AIOP at zero cost.

Here is the most important thing for me in this program.


AIOP not only saves you money on tools,

it suggest you "Fire your boss or retire in 8 weeks PLAN" (see it here).


More than money you can make promoting this company, program, opportunity or whatever word you choose, its true value lies within its product line. It’s a shame that most high ranking all in one profits reviews on Google and other search engines fail to point this out.

Most of them are what I call bait reviews, misguiding and scaring people but in the end offering a link to join their opportunities claiming that theirs are the ones that are truly legit.

Listen, I know you probably landed on this review to find out whether All in one profits is worth your time and money. For a fact everyone is afraid of being scammed and we have seen many scams come and go.

But I’ll tell you this, you are also allowed to test my theory if you wish.

If a program exists to purely rotate money among its members with no solid product attached to it (cash gifting), that opportunity will definitely die in a very short time.

Again such programs barely survive a year online. But even if they do, they won’t make it to two years.

Important Details

all in one profits, AIOP, allinoneprofits

All in one profits was launched in January 2012. More refreshing than knowing that this company has survived a test of time, 3 years and 10 months at the time of this posting, Isabela Capsuna is the CEO , /owner of this company with its origins in Europe (Romania)

all in one profits, AIOP, allinoneprofits 1

I quote –

AIOP is designed to be a complex  project, a whole advertising network providing web hosting and autoresponder services, along with all the essential web tools, products and services, software, educational material and training and all legal forms of advertising, a complete and complex web platform with access to a lot of ingredients making possible any business online.

As product is key, let’s dive into the details of the two main products that makes AIOP what it is. (Before we talk about the money you can make)

All in One Profits Products.

Web Hosting

This is number one all in one profit products. It offers premium web-hosting services. That means you can host unlimited number of domains on the same account with a popular easy to use c panel which is pretty popular in the market.

That comes with 500 MB of disk space, 5 GB of disk bandwidth, unlimited emails, all that backed up with a 99.9% up-time guaranteed.

This is the same kind of service that other big companies like hostgator and godaddy would charge you $10 a month. (For this alone).

Bundled with that, this service also comes with a how to video guide that takes you through the process. So even if you are a total newbie, you’ll be guided through the whole process.

Autoresponder

The money is in the list. It’s a common saying in our space. You need to start building a list. That’s how people make money online. To build one, you need an autoresponder service and all in one profits has the best one for you.

This is the service that made me pay my way into the company without thinking twice.  For 2 years I have been searching for alternative ways of collecting emails without spending a fortune. Thank God I stumbled upon AIOP.

Companies know that people need to build their lists. And because this is almost a necessity, these companies charge a ridiculous high fee for a limited number of subscriber.

Let’s have a look at the industry’s biggest players i.e. Aweber, Get Response and Mail chimp.

For just 2000 subscribers, the least you can pay is not less than $15. As your list grows you’ll be required to pay more. That means as time goes and as your list grows, a point will come when you won’t be able to afford the services as shown below.

Aweber pricing

Get response pricing

Allinoneprofits, all in one profits review, AIOP (Get response pricing comparison)

 

Back to AIOP autoresponder. For just the same fee that gives you a hosting account ($11), you also get an unlimited autoresponder service.

Unlimited means:

  • You can have unlimited subscribers (go for a million, it’s your choice)
  • You can send unlimited follow up messages
  • You can send unlimited broadcast emails
  • You can save unlimited campaigns

And as usual there is a guide video that takes you through setting everything up

Other products Include

  • AIOP Splash/squeeze page builder
  • AIOP Tracker
  • AIOP down line builder
  • AIOP Rotator
  • AIOP E-Library

All in one profits membership and Pricing.

The program has two membership levels. Basic and pro priced at $11.75 and $19.5 respectively. I decided to stick with the basic since I get all the above mentioned services with no limitation.

The pro membership is in my opinion not too important. Include are just a set of additional tools that i can do without. So for the time being I’m comfortable right where I am (Basic).

all in one profits, allinoneprofits, AIOP, all in one profits review membership chat

By the way,

If anything I have said from the beginning resonates with you. Here is my link for you to join. Yes you’ll be placed either on my downline or my sponsor’s downline and on our rotator.

Either way I treat everyone the same in terms of support.

On top of that,

I will also earn a 100% commission from you which brings us to the most interesting part.

How to make money with All in One Profits (Compensation plan)

At the beginning I promised to tell you how to use AIOP at zero cost.

Well, here it is – Get your first sign up and your monthly fee is pretty much covered. This is however for as long as that person continues maintaining their membership’s i.e. monthly fees. (Shrug)

Don’t walk away.

There’s a much more interesting game going on with AIOP compensation plan.

First of all, all in one profits uses a network marketing model. You receive monthly recurring commissions from those you introduce to the company. They become your downlines and you also benefit from the pass ups coming from their downlines and their downlines’ downlines.

For sure I’m a fun of 100% commissions and I know you are too. There are a few companies that have implemented this model in the past and we all know how motivational it can be. Allinoneprofits offers the same.

The most enticing thing however, is the pass up game coded into the pay plan. That simply awards AIOP’s compensation plan as one of the best in the industry.

Here is how it goes:

You sponsor your first person, he or she becomes your direct downline. You sponsor your second and you pass him or her to your sponsor. Then your third becomes yours and the forth your sponsor’s.

Simply put, all referrals down to infinity that falls under an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7……) becomes your direct referrals. And, all those that fall on an even number (2, 4, 6, 8……) becomes your sponsor’s.

Now most people would walk away laughing and cursing this to be the lamest pay plan ever. But here is the coolest stunt of all.

You also get pass ups from all your odd number referrals. Those pass ups also give you pass ups that gives you pass ups that also gives you pass ups down to infinity.

So basically, you get fed from every level down forever. Even if you ended up signing up 1 serious person for example, it could really sprout into a ginormous pay overtime. Just bar non CRAZY.

Join for free ( to our team) just to see this UNIQUE PATENTED COMPENSATION PLAN and then make a decision.

Why I joined all in one profits.

There are two main reasons why I joined AIOP.

  1. Cost minimization

One of the reasons I failed in my first online venture was the cost involved to run that business. I was a newbie and very broke. I was spending more on the tools required to operate an online business than the actual money I could make.

With all in one profits, I get all the essential tools to operate an online business (hosting, unlimited autoresponder and other packages) for a throw away price ($11/month). That’s just something I couldn’t ignore.

Having studied accounting as a profession, I do understand well how beneficial having your operational costs at the lowest can be.

Plus I can have all this at zero cost with just one sign up. Shoot me in the head but AIOP is just the best place to be at the moment.

  1. The Money

Ultimately we are all here to make money, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this right now. Even though I didn’t join this company to primarily make money with it, but just a simple fact that I can get paid good dollar while building my primary business sold me. I was in before I signed up.

After all, multiple side incomes (this blog) revolves around the idea of having multiple streams of passive income.  AIOP is just another one of my passive income streams.

*** Some people don't understand this plan and mark it as another "bullshit" or "scheme". I can say that this compensation plan is innovative.

Conclusion.

Whether you simply want to make money online or build your primary business, All in one profits will suite your needs both as a business opportunity and also as an online business tools service provider. It’s pro and newbie friendly, not forgetting how cheap it is.

 

AIOP already has more than three years on its track record. I can’t think of nothing more than the solidness of the services it offers as being one single factor that makes this company sink proof. As we have all witnessed many come and go, I can only say that this company’s journey has just began and the sails are still holding tight.

That concludes all in one profits review. Join my team here and have your free trial.

But, do you have sufficient time to spare to start your own business, from home? You will probably say NO to this question. And if you could find at least one hour a day, would you consider starting something that you would like to do that … (this post is prepared by John, Wealthy Affiliate Premium Member)

 

  1. will increase your present retirement income, maybe doubled, tripled …?
  2. could help you retire earlier AND very comfortably?

For those of you who answered yes to either of these questions, I have some good news for you. Read on … If you answered no, then, don’t waste your time to continue reading, this is definitely not for you. Continue doing what you think is good for you and your family, and good luck. For all the others, I have written this article. I have divided into four part so that it is more digestible. But don’t worry, each part is easy to understand. So, let’s get started …

How to make money from home in your spare time – Part 1


As you are still reading, I take it that you are interested in finding that extra hour a day to make a huge difference in your future; the comfort and happiness of your loved ones; either as a retiree, or in view of your approaching retirement.

As you continue reading I will show how to find that extra hour that you don’t even know you have. To turn this missing hour into a very profitable business, from home, doing the things that you always loved doing, but never could, because of … “lack of time!“.

Setting up your business part-time is not easy. Because the pitfalls are not lacking. Among them: the lack of time. Trust me, I know all about it, and I will share with you my unique method that will enable you to free up that one hour a day and to turn it into to a profitable online business from home.

Fortunately, it is possible to free up to 1 hour per day or more!

Are you on fire to retire early? Please check this PLAN.

 


You will discover 11 actions that you can easily take to save you the time you need to start your business part-time.

Here is the million dollar questions …

  • Would you like to buy time?
  • Up to an hour or more per day?

An hour to help you start your business on the Internet; develop an audience; become independent and leave your boss once and for all, if you are still under employment; or to add a good chunk of money to your retirement income if you are already retired.

And for that, you don’t even have to be a genius.

Honestly, it is not by chance that I tell you this, because we all have the dream of saving an hour or more a day; even those who have answered no to my questions above. By answering yes, you simply proved that you believe in yourself, so, this is already half the battle won.how to make money from home in your spare time

Whether it is to start your activity on the Internet, to have free time for yourself or to spend more time with your loved ones, this hour is available for you to use as you wish.

But it is not something you can do by snapping your fingers or manipulating a magic wand.

You know it already: we all have 24 hours in our days.

On average, in a day, you have 8 hours of work (if you still are on the 9 to 5); 6 to 8 hours of sleep; 1 to 2 hours of transport; 2 hours to eat all the meals of the day and 1 hour to care for our body, shower or take a bath.

If we had to be content with that, we can conclude that we have about 7 hours of free time each day.

In theory, it should not be a problem, because even if we have a job in the meantime, we still have plenty of time to work on a project.

Unfortunately in practice, it’s not at all like that.

Because in addition to hours of work, sleep and others, we find ourselves with other activities to take care of, namely hobbies, entertainment, sports, artistic, social, charity, etc.

As a human being, it is only natural that we all have these sorts of activities in our daily lives.

Otherwise, we would spend all our days dying of boredom with a deck of cards in hand, as was the case for our great grandparents.

Suddenly, instead of finding yourself with 7 hours of free time, you find yourself in reality with crumbs.

Between you and me, it’s a big problem!

Because for most of us, it is this lack of time that we need to create our own little profitable business.

Some manage to build their business, but for a large majority of us (and this may be your case), we have a lot of trouble to kick start our business.

So much that we may end up with a nervous breakdown if we are not careful, exhausted with all our un-used strengths and resources, and disgusted for not being able to enjoy life like many other successful entrepreneurs.

Fortunately, a problem always has a solution

Apart from moving to settle on Jupiter or Saturn, it is scientifically impossible to live more than 24 hours in a day.

So, it is quite useless to try to lengthen the duration of your days.

Since we cannot create days of 25 hours or more, how can we manage to free one hour per day under such conditions?

Before I explain how you can save time in your days, you first need to know why you cannot find that time for your business project.

It’s very important to know that, because it will save you a lot of time, effort and maybe even money.

So, let’s go through it together …

Why you cannot find time to start your own business


Generally, when we cannot start our own business, whether on the Internet or elsewhere, we instantly believe that the problem is the lack of time.

That is to say, we cannot even fit an hour for a project into our personal agenda.

And to be honest with you, I am well placed to tell you that, because I had exactly the same problem. When I wanted to build my business at the same time as had a j.o.b to go to.

But that’s not all, because early 2001, I decided to embark on the entrepreneurial adventure, especially on the Internet. So of course, at first, I thought that I did not have the time to start anything and thought of keeping a job at the same time. Because I thought that setting up an activity would require a lot of work, a lot of time, a lot of energy and a lot of money to get started.

But, despite all the constraints I had, such as commuting distance, sports activities, the big stack of homework and the hours to train me in marketing, I managed to find some free time.

I don’t mean to tell you that I managed to free myself 10 hours a day as if by magic, it would be to pretend to be a Mythomaniac by telling you that.

On the other hand, I managed to free myself an hour a day at least. And in some exceptional cases, I even managed to free myself 4 hours in my days.

In short, all this to say that despite my research, my job alternately and all the constraints I had, I could find free time to work on my business project.

First of all, are we really lacking free time?

Honestly, in 95% of cases, it is very likely that you are are not short of any free time.

Because in reality, you have more free time than you think.

We are not going to lie to each other: if at this moment you can read these lines, it is because somewhere you have managed to find some free time.

Even if it’s not the amount of free time you’ve been hoping to have 🙂

IcebergTo put it simply, free time is like an iceberg. It is known that 90% of an iceberg is under the surface of the water (this is called the hidden side of the iceberg).

In the same way that we underestimate the size of an iceberg, we all tend to underestimate the free time we have.

So, one may wonder if the real problem is not the lack of time, but rather a lack of priority.

That is, the real problem is that we do not know how to differentiate between a priority activity and an activity that is not.

That’s why we cannot find free time to move forward on our project, whether to launch an activity on the Internet or otherwise.

And you know why ? Because we have not defined our priorities in advance.

Basically, it’s like playing roulette by betting $1 on all the numbers at each turn.

In this way, you may win a few rounds, but you will have a hard time winning the game; or even less to win the jackpot, because you will cause a lot of loss in the meantime.

However, if you decided to bet big on a limited number of numbers, then you have more chances to win the game and to hit the jackpot.

And so, if you come to understand that your real problem is not a lack of time, but a lack of priority, then you have taken a big step forward.

Because understanding this, you will realize that the time needed to work on your business project has always been there. It was just necessary to make it a priority.

Talking about priority, tell me what are your priorities?


how to make money from home in your spare timeI am now inviting you to take something to write and to take note of all of them before continuing to read the rest of this article.

Because it will serve as a basis for everything else; not to mention that your chances of finding free time will skyrocket.

Once you have written  down your priorities on a sheet of paper (or your computer note pad), then at that point, you will be ready to discover the many ways to gain one hour a day.

And to choose those that will help you progress with your priorities.

In short, if you have already written your priorities, then you are finally ready to discover …

How to make money from home in your spare time.

This is not a new project - $1 dollar project - but it will work for you if you follow all instructions. Please check this PROJECT.

 


Before we begin, know that the list we are going to work on is not an exhaustive list, there are surely other ways to save one hour per day and use it to supplement your present or future retirement income.

If you know of any, do not hesitate to share it in the comments section at the bottom of this article, it can help some readers who are in the same boat as you. 😉

This is how you are going to find the time to start your own business:

  • Gain back the control of your smartphone
  • Get to bed early and work earlier in the morning
  • Do not overload your day
  • When asked to help, refuse by all means
  • Chuck your TV through the window (or reduce its use)
  • Automate repetitive tasks
  • Always finish what you started
  • Do not make an appointment unless it’s really important
  • Have recent equipment and of quality to work with
  • Stop going on Facebook and other social networks at will
  • Relearn how to manage your email box
  • A word before you leave
Anyway, are you ready to devour everything?

If so, then let’s get started 😀

Gain back the control of your smartphone

We are not going to lie, we are all more or less addicted to smartphones, at a point where we spend more than an hour a day on it (according to an article I read on Forbes).

Why? Because it’s texting, notifications, apps, instant messengers, and so on, that push us to spend a lot of time on our smartphones.

So, it’s no longer you who make the law, it’s your smartphone that makes the law. It’s your smartphone that decides what you have to do with your days.

And that is very annoying, especially if you want to start your activity on the web and become free of your boss.

So of course, the idea behind all this, it’s going to be to return the process; that is to say, to become again the person who decides whether or not, you want to spend time on your smartphone.

Plane modeHow to do that? First, you have to remove all notifications from your smartphone, ie Facebook, Skype, Messenger, Mail, etc.

Then, make it a habit of putting your smartphone in “airplane mode” every time you work on your project (that’s what I did, right now, it’s in airplane mode).

And finally, last thing, set a time frame where you do not have the right to touch your smartphone and one where you will have the right to use it.

In this way, you will become the ONLY master of your smartphone🙂

Get to bed early and work earlier in the morning

You know, many of us want to start an activity on the web, but for many, there is THE BOSS who is always present. Which forces us to work in the evening on our project.

Unfortunately, it’s a bad idea.

Why ? Because in general, when we come home from work, we do not feel like working on our project. We want to do only one thing: to sit on the couch!

It is not for nothing that we jump on the sofa at the end of the day, because a day of work exhausts us literally.

Then, once we hit the couch, we tend to postpone until tomorrow what we promised us to do tonight; that is to say, work on our business project.

Then we do the same thing again the next day; the day after tomorrow; then the following day; and so on. It becomes a vicious circle.

Between you and me, we’ve all done it before. Including me.

So, if you really want to save an hour a day for your business project, postpone it and do the work in the early morning.

In short, how? Already, you need to define the time that you will need to work on your project in the morning, in general, a minimum of an hour.

Then you will have to learn to get up earlier than usual, for example, to get up at 6:00 am instead of 7:00 am.

Not to mention that you will have to set the time you have to go to bed earlier to make sure you get up earlier.

And finally, get in the habit of working early on your project.

In this way, you will save an hour each day to start your activity; you will tend to procrastinate less and above all, you will have the evening just to rest. Pretty good plan huh! 😉

Often, when we want to launch an activity on the web and we do not have all day to do it. We tend to overload things to do, despite the short time available.

For example, write an article, make a podcast, reply to e-mails, reply to comments, update our blog, modify our landing page, create a logo, contact a partner, etc.

Well, it’s good to want to do your best to start your activity on the web. It shows that you are serious about it.

Only thing, if you really want to save time, know that it is not a good idea to proceed in this way.

Why?

Because it is not by doing many things that you will start your activity on the web 10 times faster.

You can do a lot of things in a very short time, like 30 tasks in an hour; maybe it’s possible.

Except that among these 30 tasks performed, most of them have no impact on your web activity.

Do you know why most tasks are useless? Because there are really very few things that have a huge impact on your business project.

For example, updating your WordPress blog has no more impact than posting a guest article to a blogger.

Because by publishing on your blog, you will gain a lot of visibility; while by doing a simple update on your blog, you might not have earned a single extra potential customer.

So, instead of saving time by doing a lot of things, you waste your time doing unnecessary things.

I know, it’s completely counter-intuitive what I’m telling you, even I did not believe it a few years ago.

Yet, I learned the truth by doing the exact opposite. I can tell you that it hurt my ego when I perceived the difference.

In short, how can you avoid doing this?

The first thing you need to do is understand that the amount of finished work does not mean that you will progress faster.

Then, from the moment you understand that, you need to identify the essential tasks of your business.

For this, you will need to make a table in 2 columns.

One column for all essential tasks for your business and another column for all non-essential tasks.

To give you a concrete example, here is a table of my personal tasks that I find essential for me:

  • Publish articles
  • Publish podcasts
  • Train myself in efficiency and marketing.

As well as tasks that are not:

  • Create a logo
  • Make the promotion on Facebook
  • Analyze my competitors on Twitter
  • Update my WordPress blog
  • Look for a new WordPress plugin
  • Pay for Facebook or Google AdWord advertising
  • Improve the design of my blog
  • Improve the design of my emails
  • Create business cards
  • Etc.

I advise you to reserve a good half hour to complete your table of essential tasks and non-essential tasks. Once completed, you can continue to Part 2 of how to make money from home in your spare time. (Part 2 coming soon).

Your 1st Step To An Easy Retirement Income

easy retirement incomeTo secure an easy retirement income, it is necessary to think about it very early in life and it is not once arrived at the end of your career that you must start to wonder about what will happen once you are retired. One thing that you can be sure of is that if you don’t do anything about now, no matter what your age is, you will suffer from a much lower income, all of a sudden.

Remember that you also have some responsibilities towards your family. It is not because you are retired that you are free to relax completely. You still have the same obligations to guarantee a comfortable life to your loved ones.

Although it is difficult to think about it at the age of 25, it is better to prepare yourself early to ensure a more or less “comfortable” income in retirement. So, the earlier the better!

Now, if you are already in retirement, the good news is that it is not too late to improve your way of living, and why not?.. to have a much better lifestyle than you ever had, even at the peak of your working life.

How to manage your retirement over the years


1 – Prepare yourself psychologically for retirement

The baby boomer generation have already reached retirement, and many will still be retiring. There is a life after working life. Some will be happy to be retired and others would prefer, even need to continue working.

2 – How to prepare for retirement?

We must see the retirement, as a new life. Discovering a passion, participating in volunteering, being able to travel. The most important thing to do to prepare for retirement is to feel good. Retirement is above all a state of mind.

3- When can you retire?

In some countries, retirement is regulated by law. Despite what is applied, it is sometimes possible to advance your retirement. Depending on present situation, if you still have days off, it might be wise for you to take them to advance the date of your retirement.

4 – Is it possible for you to cumulate your retirement and an other income?

If you prefer to continue working, it is quite possible to cumulate your part-time job and your retirement. Thus you can delay your retirement date either by combining employment with retirement or by means of a progressive retirement. Consult with your present employer to decide what’s best for you and them.

It is also possible to start your own business early on, during your spare time and weekends, and then, you benefit from your retirement pension, as a fixed income.

When do I know if I am ready to retire?

This is the million dollar question, which can be broken down into 3 simple questions:

  1. Do I want to retire now?
  2. Is it the right moment?
  3. Am I tired or otherwise fit?

So many questions to ask yourself to avoid regretting your choice. In the following paragraphs, I will help you make the right choice by sharing with you my personal life experience:

  • How I started several part time businesses early on in life
  • Why did I do that?
  • And why did I really never had a boss to tell me what to do

So, stick with me and find all the information you need to prepare for your retirement, or to improve your way of life, if you are already in retirement.

Okay? So let’s get started …

Important 4 reasons why many people fail in marketing.

honesty

I've read a lot of posts articles on this topic and think this content has something important to say.

Most people that try online marketing will fail (when it comes to making money, 90% fail). That’s just the facts, man. (post by  Brendan Mace)

The GOOD NEWS is that new marketers fail for predictable reasons. If you can avoid those reasons, you can be successful online.

And that’s where this blog post comes in.

Ok… So here goes.

This post is going to be straight to the point. No sugar coating.

You might agree with me about the wisdom below. If not, move on to destination where 90% of work is designed for you.

Let’s get started…

Reason #1 = You Don’t Have a Website

There are loads of tools and courses out there that brag about not needing a website or hosting. I want you to know that they’re LYING to you. It’s profitable to tell people that something is easy. It’s not profitable to tell people that something takes a bit of work.

That’s why you won’t find a bunch of marketers telling you to get a website running.

They don’t care.

But let me ask you this…

Have you ever heard of a single person making a living online WITHOUT a website?

It just doesn’t happen.

I’ve been in the marketing business for over 8 years now, and I can’t think of a SINGLE example.

There are many reasons to build your own website. There’s not even one reason to put this step off.

You might need a website to:

  • Host a landing page
  • Create a blog
  • Set up niche sites
  • Be the go-to-guy

At the end of the day, everything starts and ends with a website.

Get one ASAP.

Reason #2 – You’re Not Helping People

I’m an email marketer.

You probably know that, and have subscribed to my email list before.

There’s always one thing I tell people that SHOCKS them.

I’m about to share it with you, so keep your shorts clean.

My autoresponder sequence contains 210+ emails.

This is also known as the “follow-up series” and they are the messages that subscribers get after opting in.

That’s not the shocking part yet, although over 200 is a lot.

The shocking part is when I tell people which email makes the most money.

Take a look at #6 in this list

email marketing for newbies

In most of my emails, I’m either selling something directly, or proving a tutorial that indirectly compensates me in some way.

Message #6 is not selling anything. And it’s my most profitable email by far.

Here’s a look at the email:

how to build a list

… You know why this email is the best?

It helps people.

When you help people make money online, they’ll reward you with loyalty for life.

Lots of times it takes just a couple minutes to answer someone’s question. And then shortly after, they’ll inquire about my coaching or buy things through my affiliate links.

I even get subscribers that email me because they want to give me the commission for a purchase.

You will probably underestimate the power of helping. 

It’s not your fault. You see wantrapreneur jokers all day long trying to make a quick buck by slamming links down your throat. The reality is that people buy from real people (or brands) they know and trust.

Start helping people.

Even something as simple as learning how to set up web hosting can make you hundreds or thousands per month.

Did you know that HostGator pays affiliates up to $125 per hosting sale?

That means that you could help somebody set up hosting for about 10 minutes, and end up making a smooth $125 commission.

Talk about a good income per hour.

Helping people works!

Reason #3 – You’re Jumping Instead of Fine-Tuning

This is a really big one. The truth

And I did it in the beginning as well. The results were devastating.

When you learn how to do something new online, the instinct is to keep looking for something else.

There are a couple reasons for this behaviour, but the main one is that a new strategy is not going to be successful right away.

Rome wasn’t built in a day. Your online business won’t be either.

Whether your thing is list buildingblogging or creating niche sites.

The key is to pick something, and then stick with it.

Let me share a life story… (by Brendan Mace)

I’m a list builder.

Like every other email marketer, I learned the biz from scratch.

When I started list building a couple years ago, I used to lose my shirt.

I’d set up a funnel, buy some traffic and LOSE money.

It sounds terrible, right?

Well within three months, I was able to “fine-tune” and tweak things to make a profit.

Most of us know that if you can make a profit in list building — it’s game over.

If for every $1 you spend, you make $2. Well, you can build an unlimited subscriber list on near autopilot. But you’re not going to make it to that point overnight.

It’s the little things that make the BIG DIFFERENCE

I’ll bet you don’t hear that everyday.

Here’s an example.

In Aweber, there’s an option to set up where to redirect new subscribers.

I always tell new students that here’s your opportunity to make back your ad spend.

So the most common choice is either to use a “thank you page” or send to an “instant offer”

My preference is to the latter.

But a common mistake that most people make is they set up the “Thank You Page” option, but ignore the “Already Subscribed” feature.

You should set up both. See here:

how to build a list

Now this isn’t a HUGE deal.

But not changing the “Already Subscribed” page is leaving money on the table.

It’s small tweaks like these that make the difference between making money and LOSING IT.

Over time, you should be able to tweak ONE asset enough to make a profit.

Focus on that. Don’t switch to something else.

Reason #4 – Information Overload

We live in an information age, and it’s spoiling your road to success.

Make no mistake. This is a problem.

Seth GodinSeth Godin said it years ago “Marketers are all liars”

Now maybe not ALL OF THEM are dishonest. But most will be sharing marketing “secrets” that are unused for a reason.

Remember that most people don’t make money online. But it’s profitable for business to pretend that you’re the man.

And to do that, you need to teach people.

The dangerous part is when unsuccessful marketers are telling you how to run a business.

If it didn’t work for them, it’s not going to work for you.

Yes, you should help people. I made a strong case for that in reason #2. But please people limit your help to things that you actually know about.

Anybody with half an hour on their hands could learn how to set up hosting.

Trying to tell somebody how to make $1,5xx.42 in the next 32 seconds is not something you learn in a day. Heck, it’s not something most learn in a lifetime.

The problem is that this information overload is inevitable.

You should only listen to advice from a mentor that you know you can trust.

It’s not rocket science. But it doesn’t include fluff or falsehoods either.

Whatever you do, make sure that you learn from someone that knows what they are talking about.

Otherwise you could waste years copying wantrapreneurs pretending to hold the “one secret” to owning lambo’s and expensive watches. And maybe even become one yourself.

Wrapping it Up

You may think you already know how to make money online.

Heck, you might even have made a buck or two.

You will not change your life until you stop these mistakes.

To be clear, these 4 reasons are common. They affect most us, and they even messed with me in the beginning. I wasted years moving around shiny new methods. Only to find out that I wasn’t going to get anywhere until I took action from someone that knows their stuff.

No One Told Me About Blogging 5 thingns

Blogging is one way to increase your presence online. It helps you develop your expertise and your brand. A blog is a place to house your content which can then be used in multiple ways. (by Kerri Foster)

If you are serious about building a business online blogging is an essential tool.

As a new blogger, I’m struggling with some things I wasn’t told ahead of time. Some of them held me back and some things, like finding my voice is an ongoing process.

Here are 5 things no one told me about blogging.

1 Don’t Fear Competition

Crowds of bloggers
Bloggers around the world

With blogs and bloggers numbering in the millions, starting a blog is intimidating.

WPVirtuoso estimates there are over 152 million blogs! (Source: WPVirtuoso How Many Blogs Are on the Internet) The same article states that: ” a new blog is created somewhere in the world every half a second.”

Are you ready to run for the hills?

However, if you have something unique to say or a special expertise, or you’re especially good at interviewing experts, either one or both of these avenues might be right for you.

 

The important thing to remember is you are not competing with every single one of those blogs.

2 No Expertise? You Can be a Reporter

How to Steal Like and ArtistMany people online appreciate those who can report on what is going on in their niche. The sheer volume of content makes it impossible to be aware critical information they need to find success. Therefore, in the role of a reporter, you can create valuable content for your audience.

Google Search is your best friend in this role. Searching for articles, new, forums on the topic you report on will give you more material that you could ever use.

It’s not about copy that information, but rewriting it to suit your style, or repurposing the content. For example, you could take an article and make an infographic from the information.

This is a great way to build a large following, especially if you put your own unique slant and personality into your writing.

If you are worried about copyright issues doing this I recommend a book, How to Steal Like an Artist. It’s a short fun book to read and show why and how to steal like an artist.

3 Profitability Takes Time

Blog logoIf you plan to use your blog as your primary source of income then patience and persistence is a virtue.

I’d recommend you read a couple of blogs about blogging to help you understand the ins and outs of making money as a blogger.

Try: Copyblogger or Blogging Basics 101

You’ll need time to build a following and get subscribers, which is why it’s best to start blogging part-time while you do something else for income.

But if you find the right topic – and most importantly, you find your tribe – then it is possible to build up to a very decent 5 and even 6 figure income.
However, if there are other uses for a blog.

he reason I have a blog is to house my content to make distribution to my list easier and to extend my social media reach.

Either way as an internet marketer a blog is one of your best relationship building tools.

4 Find Your Voice

A Cat Finding it's VoiceFinding your blogging voice will take time, practice and action. With time your own voice will begin to manifest.

So why do you need to find your voice?

You don’t want to sound like everyone else, nor do you want to appeal to every person out there.

First, when you have your own unique voice, people have a reason to like you. You’re authentic, and you have something to say. Don’t be afraid to state your opinions and back them with facts. This will cause your tribe to gravitate to you as you build more and more rapport with them.

Second, if you try to appeal to everyone, you will appeal to no one.

Choose your perfect reader and then speak to this person.

For example, if your topic is motorcycles, you wouldn’t want to appeal to everyone who has a motorcycle, doesn’t have a motorcycle, likes motorcycles and even doesn’t like motorcycles.

But if you speak to the 55-year-old dentist who rides his Harley Davidson on weekends, then you’ve narrowed your niche to professionals on Harleys. And while this excludes most everyone else, it makes those professionals on Harleys much more likely to become loyal readers and listeners.

5 Become Well Connected

ConnectionsAs I suggested in point three reading other blogs about blogging is a good way to learn your art. You can also find other blogs in your niche to see what they write about. Commenting on articles you see and like helps build those connections. Don’t be afraid to reach out to other bloggers to ask questions.

As you become more connected your reach expands and so does your authority. You start to build that important equation of know like and trust.

Also follow bloggers on social media, Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms you like to use yourself.

While people blog for a multitude of reasons for an internet marketer blogging is an essential tool that makes growing your business easier overall.

Whether you want to use your blog simple to house and share content or to build your blog into your primary business income, you will be inspired, challenged and sometimes frustrated the process but you will never be bored.

What obstacles stand in your way of starting a blog?

Anthony Morrison Fan Page Business Profits

Everyone’s hot on Facebook Ads right now…

But in my experience (Anthony Morrison - download his free ebook here) , they’re technical, confusing, and hard to master even if you know what you’re doing…

And even if you sink a bunch of time and money into learning them, like I did.

Sure, you can always hire someone to manage ads for you…

But can you still make a profit after that expense? Most people can’t.

Organic reach wasn’t so bad for us… Until Facebook’s recent algorithm changes. 😕

What if I told you there was a way to get highly targeted traffic from Facebook, without spending any money on ads, and without worrying about algorithms?

For a limited time, I’m hosting a “Fan Page Domination” workshop, and you can register for free right here:

In this free training, I’m going to teach you the same system that netted me 7,356 email subscribers without spending a dime…

The same system that my student Kevin used to generate 37,000 email subscribers and build a Facebook community of 68,000 fans.

In fact, I’ve shared these tactics with my best students, and we’ve had 139 DOCUMENTED SUCCESS STORIES in just the last two weeks. Are you next?

Learn more and register for this free training by clicking here:

The facts are (like anything in life) there are a few catches that I will need to show you before you
just go blazing on Facebook.

  • How do you make your posts go viral?
  • What types of Facebook post generate the best results?
  • How do you make Facebook show your posts to all of your fans?
  • How do you properly setup your Optin and Thank You pages?
  • How do you place those Google Ads on your page so you can earn money?
  • How do you setup your Auto-Responder?

In this live training I walk step by step through the entire process building my own Fan Page
business right in front of you so you can easily duplicate what I am doing.

The real key here is to make sure you LEARN how to do this so you can duplicate it over and over
again because hey ….

There’s no limit to how many Fan Page Businesses you can start!


Here's the link to join the webinar again - Your webinar starts here

I hope later the webinar will be available in records.

FREE TRAFFIC FROM FACEBOOK – IT’S POSSIBLE!

So let’s start off first by saying that most FREE TRAFFIC sources are terrible and here’s why:

- Most FREE TRAFFIC sources are LOW QUALITY
- Most FREE TRAFFIC sources are NOT TARGETED
- Most FREE TRAFFIC sources TAKE FOREVER

Basically when people tell you they will show you how to get FREE TRAFFIC you should typically RUN the other direction because you’re likely wasting your time…

I’ve been the biggest proponent of the old saying “you get what you pay for” when it comes to
marketing online. I’ve never taught my students free traffic strategies because in the end I knew
it would never give them the results they truly needed in the time frame they wanted.

Let’s be honest as you read this book right now you wanted results yesterday.

You know it’s true…. And I am going to guess something else about you too…
If we’re being honest you’ve probably tried some of these “free traffic” methods and gotten no
results right?

Above you can see Anthony Morrison video recorded 1 year ago. He updated information in the webinar on 21 July 2018.

Consult, don’t sell in network marketing.

Consult, don't sell.

I want to discuss how to talk to prospects. So many people go out and immediately want to give prospects every fact and figure about the product, compensation plan, company, etc. In my opinion, this strategy is jumping the gun.

In order to get someone who is focused on something else to potentially consider what you have, you first have to get them to open their mind a bit. I’ve heard about and used a lot of different techniques to achieve this over the years. The best way I’ve found, is to act like a consultant.

If you act like a consultant, instead of a sales person, you’re going to build more trust and have a better conversation. Consultants ask questions to try to figure out the situation, and a key strategy is to talk to people about entrepreneurship – not your product, compensation plan, or company. So, ask them, “Have you ever gone into business for yourself?” Their answer will affect how you go forward.

If they say, “No, I haven’t because they’ve never really had a desire,” then they may be employee minded. This is important to figure out up front because you don’t want to push an employee minded person to be an entrepreneur. Of course, you can always ask if they would be interested in becoming entrepreneurial minded, if you gave them a way to do it. They may still not be interested, and that’s fine.

They might answer your question with, “No, I haven’t because…” and they list the reasons why they didn’t go into business for themselves like they were too afraid, didn’t have the skills, or not enough money. Well, then you can offer them a solution. Network Marketing has the friendliest environment for a person with an entrepreneurial mindset who has the dream but doesn’t have the vehicle. We can offer them a way with very low risk, flexible time, and all of the business aspects taken care of for them.

The might answer with, “Yes, I have tried, and it was a disaster because I didn’t have enough money or time, the product wasn’t good, I didn’t have the skill, etc.” Again, you can offer them the same solutions through Network Marketing.

Or they might say, “Yes, I am a current business owner and it’s a disaster.” They feel like the business owns them, and they give you a list of challenges. Network Marketing can be their solution. We offer the ability to let someone else to the heavy lifting, the risk is low, and there are no employees, overhead, or personal guarantees. All of those challenges that come with a tradition small business are not present for a Network Marketer. You can offer them an easier path.

So, have this conversation about entrepreneurship with your prospects. No matter where it goes, you will have a solution for them, and have an easy entry to talk to them about your product, company, compensation plan, etc.

Time management best strategies

Ben Franklin said it first:  "Time Is Money"

One of the biggest things that holds people back from making money online is poor time management skills.  After all, the internet is a seductive place, and you can sit down at your desk with the intention of working for 3 hours, only to get sucked into one of your favorite forums or looking at "cute cute kitty videos" or something. (thanks for this blog post to Stan Stuchinsky)

Unfortunately, if you don't have the ability to manage your time wisely, chances are you'll never be productive online (which means, of course, no making big money, quitting your job, or working full-time in your underwear).

Time management is one skill you absolutely MUST master to be successful.

If you've tried to get your time under control before and failed, or if you're just looking to get a head start on a productive lifestyle, then you'll find some helpful tips below.  (Just don't spend too much time memorizing them...you've got work to do.  LOL!)

Make A List

Establish a "quitting time" - a hard, fast, carved-in-stone quitting time after which you PROMISE yourself you're not gonna go back online for ANY reason related to work.

Let's say that you establish that time as 3:00 PM.  About fifteen minutes before that time sit down in front of a pen and a yellow legal pad and make a numbered list of all the things you want to accomplish for the NEXT day.  And never, EVER tell yourself, "Oh, yeah, I'll remember to do THAT tomorrow;  I don't have to put it on my list."  Those are precisely the kinds of things you DO want on a written list because those are the things that are SO common sense that you either keep putting them off or you simply forget about 'em.

Be sure to put that yellow legal pad in a convenient place - out of the way, but in a conspicuous place - beside your computer.  Making a "To-Do" list on a word file that you can file in cyberspace is merely an exercise in self-deception;  unless you put that list in an OBVIOUS place where you're going to mentally "trip" over it all day long, you're wasting your time.

And take-your-time!  Since this list is your Life's Game-Plan for the next day, don't just itemize what you MUST do;  think about what you SHOULD do, what you COULD do, and what you'd LIKE to do.

Finally - and probably most importantly - cross off each item (even the minor ones) as you accomplish them.  This is key to the whole process because it gives one a subconscious feeling of accomplishment.

"Managing your time without setting priorities is like shooting randomly and calling whatever you hit the target."

 

The "Wurst Furst" Strategy

One of the failings we ALL share is the inborn need to put off unpleasant tasks as long as possible.  In other words we have  that all-too-human habit of.....

.....PROCRASTINATING!

But there is a simple fix for this;  When you're making out that To Do list at the end of the day, pick out that ONE task that is most distasteful - that one task that you'd rather walk over hot coals than perform - that one task that makes your blood run cold!

 

Now, the all-too-human method of handling this item is to put it off as long as possible, maybe even until it moves from being a mere annoyance to a major problem or catastrophe.  But WE'RE gonna approach this just a little differently;  you and I are going to do this "WORST, FIRST."  We are going to conquer that most repulsive task of all BEFORE ANY OTHER ITEM ON OUR LIST!

You will find that when you consistently do the worst-first that you will be able to approach those OTHER tasks on your list with a relief and focus that would have been impossible if you had left that distasteful task weigh on your mind all day long.

Obey "Posted Limits " - It's Important to Know When to Start, But It's MORE Important to Know When to S-T-O-P!

There are a lot of theories out there about how best to budget your time.  The most popular is the "80/20 rule," which states that since 80% of your business comes from 20% of your activities, you should then focus 80% of your time on those activities.

Sounds great, right?  Unfortunately, it's really hard to stick to, and you'll most likely find yourself going over budget on other things.  And since any plan that's hard to implement is essentially worthless, you need to find another tactic.

A great way to do this is to assign time limits to each activity, and hold yourself to them.  If you give yourself 30 minutes to respond to emails, once that timer goes off, you're done.  No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

This will keep you on track with your day, and even better, having that sword hanging over your head really helps you focus on the task at hand. Chances are you'll respond to more emails if you limit yourself to 30 minutes than you would if you gave yourself an entire afternoon.

Break It Down - "It's Hard By the Yard, But a Cinch By the Inch"

In my opinion that old Nike marketing quote - "Just DO It!" - is the most crucial in the study of time management.

People fool themselves all the time into thinking that things are more important than they really are. Should that key word in your sentence be bolded or italicized?  Better think about it...and next thing you know you've wasted a bunch of time on something that's likely inconsequential.

A far better strategy is to learn how to make decisions quickly.  In the above example, just go with whatever your gut tells you, or even whichever's easier.  You can always go back and test to see if one truly is better than the other.  Chances are, though, you'll find most decisions are relatively meaningless, and so just picking one at random is preferable to wasting time debating their merits.

I'm not saying make major decisions on the spur of the moment, without thought or planning.  But how many major decisions do you really make in a day?  I bet not many. There might be a lot that feel that way, but once you learn to just treat them like any other question, you'll find that the decisions come easier...and that you get a lot more done each day.

The Wassell Strategy - "Done" Is Better Than "Perfect"

One of my worst traits is that I am a perfectionist!

The sad part about it is that I know it's a bad habit, a terrible habit, in fact.  For example, I know fellow marketers who can sit down and write a well-crafted, effective sales letter in 10 or 15 minutes.  But me?  I might labor over a promotional message for hours.  It's not unusual for me to use a thesaurus to analyze if one word is more descriptive, more powerful, more "potent" than another word in delivering my message.

Then one day a good friend of mine (by the name of John Wassell) pointed out the "error of my ways."

In so many words he admonished me thus:  "Understand, Stan, that there's certainly nothing wrong with wanting to do a good job, a GREAT job even:  the pursuit of excellenceis gratifying and healthy.  But the pursuit of perfection is frustrating, neurotic, and a terrible waste of time."

To this day, like a recovering alcoholic or drug addict, I still struggle to overcome MY "addiction" whenever I start another project, no matter how large or small.  But in the final analysis, I have found that it IS far better to be "done than perfect";  the end results are the same, but now.....

.....I have much more time to look at cute kitty videos on the Internet!
