I worked with some great people this weekend. Our team was tech heavy and we built a functional application.
Our pitch however was not polished. The feedback we received from the judges was that they dud not understand the product although it gad real value.
The product was an application that would instruct the user on how to communicate more effectively with the person you love, based on survey results. Experts and others would recommend specific actions to increase the bond between that couple. This user generated content would be ranked according to feedback received from those that employed it. In the back-end the app had the potential of collecting data in the persons emotion state that could be mined for future purchasing patterns.
The team also had a couple copy writer and accountant, Tim and Kelly. They produced some excellent presentation materials and some financials to back it up. I’m looking forward to working more with them.
I learned that Angel investors will invest in the person more so than a good idea. However, that idea needs to be presented in clear and concise terms to its understood. It also must indicate how money can be made from the project. 13 months ago

I’ve been listening to the audio book again. It’s a lit better than junk talk shows and politics.
We have done good with savings and controlling out expenses.
Investing and putting my gold to work will be my next array of focus. I’ve also had to admit that this is the area that has cost me the most. I’ve made poor investments seeking wild returns.
Even when investing in stocks, instead of cutting my loses I would unwisely hold on. I would do better to seek safe returns with minimal risks.
I need to find safe investments.
We also need a better budget, one that is more exact. I want to know how much I have to spend. This past month I had a few expenses I could have avoided. 16 months ago

An NPR article turned me onto this one. I applied some of it today by taking a brisk walk after lunch around the mall instead of whatever it was I used to do. I think it was watching YouTube videos. I talked to Valyncia afterwards. I need to clarify what my reward is and better understand what I crave. Perhaps I could talk with our Psychologist friends. 17 months ago

I will begin doing exercises today. Again, I will follow the 3 phase 90 day approach. Develop the habit first, using the quick stat method of experiencing wins and remaining motivated. This phase is about the doing of something new that is not challenging, only pleasurable and rewarding. Some activities will need to have the instant gratification experienced indirectly through tracking or journal using game. But the idea is to develop the habit of doing the new activity consistently and repetitively without experiencing consequences of failure or perceiving failure. The success is I. The doing only. That is the measurement of success in the quick start phase.
Conditioning will be next. It prepares of for training or deep practice. That is that last phase I. Which we operate at the edge of our abilities to push beyond perceived limits. These limits are overcome with a specific method of isolated step by step approach to repeat an activity until that step is mastered before moving forward. 23 months ago
It was worth reading, but talent us over rated is a lot better. This book stated that material in the brain continues to grow when we make and learn from mistakes by repetition. I had already surmised that you should make a mistake everyday. Meaning that reputation allows us to get better. The trick is to have a plan designed to practice in our fields of expertise
How this relates to the mundane millionaire, is that instead of fretting that we missed our window. Embrace a field and apply deliberate practice to make the transition and achieve excellence. These books will be great for patenting decisions. 1 year ago

Now with overdrive downloaded, it’s going to be easy to listen to my one book a week. In addition, it will further cut out my desire to listen to junk radio in the car. 1 year ago
I guess this is part of these type of books that’s a standard. Half of the book is filled with the Horatio Alger stories, that say if they can do it, so can you. Here is how they did it, wasn’t that neat.
Personally, I don’t like too much of that, but I’m seeing a pattern in these books to follow. Part of the book needs to include these stories or interviews from these people that used to be just like everyone else, but no longer are because they followed this magic path that’s totally duplicable. 1 year ago
It says to praise kids efforts of struggle not innate intelligence. This causes them to work harder and stay motivated. Affirm the struggle. Praise effort.
Examples: wow, you really tried hard
Empty praise: you’re the best.
Only offer praise when it’s earned 2 years ago
