One of the top New Year’s Resolutions is to quit smoking. It’s been this way for years and will probably be this way for years to come. Why? Because smoking is terrible and quitting smoking is one of the hardest things to do. As the New Year represents new opportunities and a fresh start, it is automatically something that so many people want to quit doing.
The smartphone is our most personal of personal computers. There are already one billion in use. I predict this number will grow to at least 3 billion — by 2018. The multi-trillion-dollar smartphone market is remaking computing, technology, Silicon Valley, of course. But also…learning, work, entertainment, publishing, retail, culture and politics.
Use unconventional marketing methods. Advertising and flyers may not be the most effective way to enroll a workshop in lean times. For one thing, affordable ads are not usually big enough to effectively describe a workshop, unless it’s very targeted and easy to ‘get’, i.e. quitting smoking, or stress-reduction. If you’re teaching motivational or inspirational work consider using an affiliate program viral email marketing distributing articles through targeted ezines working your personal happy new year 2019 quotes network or making yourself available as a guest on local TV or radio talk shows. Best of all is a combination of all of the above.
Don’t starve yourself. If you are hungry, then eat something. Trying to force yourself through hunger brings your metabolism to a screeching halt, and then the next time that you do eat, oh boy.
Myth buster: You can NOT lose weight in target areas like your stomach or chin. Your weight will come off in the reverse order that it was put on. Nothing will offset this effect.
Goal setting has a very important component that is missed by many. And it is very simple. That component is to write the goals down. And secondary to that it is to have them at your finger tips, not in a drawer somewhere. Just like budgets don’t work unless they are reviewed and monitored, goals need to be a working instrument. You need to review them, adjust them, and work them into your monthly, weekly and daily task lists.
The Easy A-Adding a comb or accented pin to any hairstyle is a fast and uncomplicated way to amp up a New Year’s Eve dress. Pull one or both sides back and leave hair down, slide a pin into just one side of the hair just above the ear, or even stick a comb into the side of a French Twist or top of a bun. Experiment and see what works for you, but really, going beyond two combs or clips will max out your ‘do. Don’t go overboard.
