Step 2: Communication
So guy’s, what is the problem with us when it comes to communicating? Now I’m not saying that we can’t or don’t have the capacity to do it, but it seems at times that when it is necessary we will often not to live up to the moment. Can you honestly say that a plan no matter what it is can be completed with bad communication or no communication? The truth is that the big plan you may have can and will fail. Men have this problem of not wanting help sometimes, “you need to get out of that type of thinking”. This goes true at work, your business ventures and relationships.
In relationships listen we need to listen way more and talk less. Only offer your advice and opinion when she is seeking it. To do this you must know your women, that means listen more, duh! Trust me, she will spill her guts if knows you are really listening to her.
At work, don’t be afraid to express your opinion when it’s necessary. Be respectful and honest, your boss will appreciate you a lot more. That doesn’t mean he or she will take what you said into account all the time, but as long as your voice is heard that’s all that matters. Politics in the workplace is very prominent, so sometimes you may have to eat “crow”.
As with your business, you may have people working for you. This is where your business will succeed or fail. The employees are the work horse’s and you are the one with the reins. Listen to their needs and issues. Always have an open door policy “be available”. A happy worker is a hard worker, which means your business will continue to grow and more revenue will come in. Is’n that the whole point of having a business in the first place? Retention is the key here, remember that…
BOLO(Be On The Look Out) for the next step: Networking
Why do you want to retire early? Does this make sense to you at this point in your life? Men tend to have this thinking that they would love to stop working for someone at some point in their life. The question is, what are you doing in order to achieve that dream. Because as it stands right now, it is a dream. Now, there is nothing wrong with having a dream to the something that will make you happy, but what’s your motivation.
Sites like Forbes and The Wall Street Journal can teach a lot of things in order to accomplish this goal. So let’s say you are a 30 something guy and you are pretty much fed up with what you are doing now. Do you have a plan of attack that will catapult you to that thing you want so badly?
The first we have to make sure is if you are ready to take on that challenge. This also means that you must look deep within yourself first. How mentally prepared are you? For me I’ve been singing that song for a long time, but I always found out that I never really prepared myself for what I really wanted. I invested more money in this type plan than actually being sure that this is what I wanted to do.
I don’t want you guy’s to make the same mistake that I did. Just think, if you could do what you really love and make money from it too, would you really be retired? Of course not, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates Oprah could have retired years ago if they wanted too. But they don’t because they love what they do. So don’t get caught up in this idea that retiring early is the dream, no you need to search out the best in you as a man first. Once you find that one thing because all you need is one, then you can take off like a rocket!!!
Hey guys, If you are like me you hate Monday mornings. Here’s a little tip that will give you a boost of energy to start your day and not its not coffee or sex its, vitamin c and h2o
Vitamin C does wonders for the body as you may or may not know like, repairing body tissue; assisting in better bone development; better immune system etc. So if you are a workout junky, then vitamin c should be a part of your daily consumption. I take vitamin C chewable tablets in the morning, its way cheaper than buying orange juice every other day.
H2O do I really have to explain this one…? Okay, okay, just a little. Now, most people get 6 to 8 hours of rest every night which is good. I’m lucky if I can get 5 hours sleep, but some doctors agree that 5 hours of sleep is sufficient.
So anyway if you do get 6 to 8 hours of sleep at night, that is a long time without any fluids in your body. You may think because you are resting that your body doesn’t require it, but that’s way wrong. The first you should do after you get in the morning is drink a glass of water. NOT COFFEE. Trust me if you both of these tips every morning you will have a boost of energy that no amount of caffeine can give you.
