Ubermensch Day #61: Business Empire Meditate like a monk:
meditated for 10 minutes. (total accumulated time: 183 minutes). Exercise like a War God:
[n/a - rest day]. I woke up sore as hell, laying in bed for half an hour. Read a fascinating book:
Read 28 pages of Empire State of Mind: How Jay-Z Went from Street Corner to Corner Office by Zack Greenburg. (Progress: 142/196 – Physical hardcover page count: 240). Jay-z made his money through endorsement, including a failed partnership with Ford, called the "Jay Z Jeep". Unfazed, he went on wtih more partnership, including with HP and some other beer companies. Watch something inspiration:
Watched 1 episode of Darker than Black: Kuro no Keiyakusha (progress: 4/25) This episode was exciting as it draws a conclusion from the previous episode - I'm continued to be amazed at this anime, it rivals that of Black Lagoon and Cowboy Bebop. Learn an awesome foreign language:
Learned Korean for 30 minutes (Total accumulated time starting at Dec 01 2011: 682 minutes).
So in Korean, there are FOUR different ways to say "This is an apple". There is the formal spoken form, informal spoken form, formal written form, informal written form. I can see why the honorific versions make Japanese and Korean a slightly harder language to learn now.
Formal spoken form: 사과예요 = it’s an apple (sag wa ye yo)
Informal spoken form: 사과야 = is an apple (sag wa ya)
Formal written form: 사과입니다 = it's an apple (sag wa em ni da)
Informal written form: 사과다 = is an apple (sag wa da)
In the spoken form, 야 is used for nouns without final consonant and 이야 for nouns with a final consonant.
Word of the day: ancillary - an-sil-uh-ree - subsidiary, adjective. "Ancillary room" Build passive income streams (Yeah!):
rewrote 4 articles, 1000 words total, 7 backlinks from AR.
I have to write to populate the webpage with content, I have to write for backlinks (BuildMyRank.com), I have to write to get comment backlinks (ActuallyRank.com), I have to write to populate my autoresponder sequence. There seems to be no way around it!
Right now I'm writing about 2k words per day .
However, to 10x the effort I need to write about 10,000 words per day. (Yes, 10k!)
However, writing 10k per day is just an open invitation to carpal tunnel syndrome, so I'm going to buy Dragon Naturally Speaking for $100 USD. It's a voice to text software with 99 percent accuracy. I'm going to buy it tomorrow and "speak" 10,000 words per day and build the authority website at a break neck speed.
Manually typing is so 1999.
SEM is such a slow progress - I see it as something for the long term. For quick traffic, I can employ other traffic sources to our website:
==> pod cast (syndicated all over the Internet)
==> media buy (including banners and PPC)
==> Email traffic
==> Article Marketing / Guest Posting
==> "Social media" (twitter, facebook, even big online forums) Daily Conclusion - what Ubermensch thinks:
Today, a woman - in her late 20s - died close to my home. She was ran over by a bus early morning while she was walking to work.
Nobody expects to die today. This is the thoughts that probably went through her mind this morning while she's having breakfast:
"Another day at work, it's almost the holidays! I can't wait to finish, finally I can relax and hang out with the family. I haven't seen them for a while. I got my gifts for my nieces and nephews, they're so adorable! Finally I get 10 days of relaxation and away from the stress.
I can't wait to see baby Jones, she's turning 14 months. I hope the cute baby P.J I bought fits her.
Wow, it's almost 2012 ... what a year. I hope I get a promotion at work this year, and perhaps vacation somewhere warm for the winter with my hubby. I gained a couple pounds over the holidays, I'm going to sign up for the gym and lose some weight, get a sexy body and make my hubby proud.
Oops, it's 6:45 AM. Time to get to work, I don't even have time to finish my toasts anymore. I guess I have to wake up earlier .... gotta do the grocery after work too"
She was someone wife, sister, daughter, grand daughter, friend, co-worker, nighbour, a citizen, and yes, even a "spiritual being".
Dear lady who just died ... you're gone, but not forgotten - I'll be sure to look both ways when I cross the street.
I wanted to be better then average – mentally, physically, intellectually and financially. But there was something missing; I forgot about being a better then average person morally.
Sounds pretentious I know, but I have to strive into become a very upstanding person. This is not because of external rewards of heaven, nirvana, or social approval, but beause it's the correct thing to do.
When order and harmony interwine, peace is achieve. When disorder and lawlessness is combine, chao ensues.
To achieve a higher order of correct moral conduct, I will read classic literature like Tao te ching, Buddhist text and Meditation by Aurelius to distil their wisdom and follow a code of moral conduct throughout my daily interactions.
Intelligent people are more likely to be introverted.
"Introverts are a minority group in society, they form the majority of gifted people. Moreover, it appears that introversion increases with intelligence so that more than 75% of people with an IQ above 160 are introverted" Stacey's HiQ Page The Gifted Introvert
