Time shifting

This may be of some interest.

If the people you seek to engage with have a choice, they’re likely to make a choice that’s in their self-interest.

The question is: When?

Is it in a high school student’s self-interest to light up a cigarette on a Friday night? In the short run, the answer might be yes. Ask that person in forty years if it was a good idea to be tricked by advertising and peer pressure into a lifetime of expense and illness, and the answer is probably ‘no’.

When we try to change behavior to make culture better, what we’re actually doing is trying to get people to change their timeframe. The more sophisticated an audience believes it is, the easier it is to help them see that there’s more than the next ten seconds in front of them. Mobs, on the other hand, only care about what feels good in this very moment.

The insight is in understanding that perception of time–not just money, not just features, not just narrative–is actually the driving force of much of what is happening when we try to change minds.

Not, “is this a good idea?” but “when?”

It’s Time to Start the Critical Activity You Can No Longer Afford to Postpone

I’ve always been stubborn. So, it wasn’t out-of-character for me to stand my ground when everyone I knew was quite…

Balancing Your Time

If you are trying to have a life and be an internet marketer both you may start running into the same problems I am having now. Just not enough time to go around.

And winter is coming.

Being a full time online person anymore and still having the other tasks of maintaining things and adding new just around the house is a full time deal for me. Plus I also like to see if I am lucky enough to win anything by playing contests and then there is my evening stuff of the new tv shows and then fixing food, etc, etc.

So where do you get the time?

The answer is you just have to make some and tell everything else to get lost for a while.

Something else that really helps is that we are in an age of automation so when you finally do get something online it can be made to take care of itself up to a point.

If you can spend a little more a lot of the time you can get an upgrade with the new services where everything can be automated or whomever you buy from will even do it all for you. But it will cost you more.

Myself, I am kind of in the middle. I buy the things I really need and try to make my account the unlimited kind so I can do as little or as much as I need. But I do not turn the total control over to someone else because of the expense. Same as I cannot turn over all the other projects that keep me off the internet.

Another thing you need to keep in mind while buying digital products these days is that you will have to spend at least twice what the starting price of a digital item was to get a complete working program most times. The first version will be limited and if you are seriously in business you may not even get commercial rights so you can help others solve their problems.

So I advise having around $100 to spend when you buy these new products so you can get what you need as many sellers will not give you a chance to upgrade.

What I am doing now is buying stuff up and laying it back for winter when I can get to use it all then because most of these deals will be gone and you may never be able to get them again but as long as you buy a membership you can go back for a few years at least and be able to use these products usually.

I also have many new books in the works and will do them in the winter. Kindle just keeps getting better and better and I just saw where you can now add photos.

Right now I am catching my breath and taking a few days to heal up. I have 5 home projects going at once and a few more big ones waiting. And we need wood and coal for winter. It sucks when your health is not all tht great to begin with.
