Two Bites of Dessert

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now I read somewhere once that the maximum amount of pleasure you can derive from eating dessert comes in the first two bites. Any bite beyond the second bite doesn’t increase the pleasure. In fact, it reduces it.The same is true for the distractions and novelties that engage your time and attention. Television is an interesting distraction. There are dozens and dozens of excellent television shows you might watch. Devoting one hour to television each week is one thing, but devoting four hours a day to television is quite another. The Internet isn’t any better. And neither is living in your inbox.I bring this up for one important reason. If you are doing something that doesn’t help further your goals, and does not also create a tremendous amount of value in the way of pleasure, then you are wasting your time.Look at the activities that you engage in. Are you engaged in these activities because they are moving you closer to your goals? Are you doing what speaks to your highest calling? Are you engaged in activities because they create the most value for you and the people you care most about? Is what you do for pleasure really about relationships, the important stuff? If the answer to these questions is no, then you really should be doing something else.There is no such thing as time management, there is only “me management.” What you give your time, your focus, and your full attention to is your experience of life. What you give yourself to will represent the quality of your life and the quality of your contribution.Are you spending time on novelties and distractions and avoiding the work you really should be doing now? Are you sitting down to eat dessert (and nothing but dessert) for hours and hours on end? Two bites is enough. There is no greater pleasure beyond that.Decide what’s most important, and do that instead.last_img read more

Militants kill four policemen in J&K

first_imgFour policemen were killed and four service rifles were snatched on Tuesday when a group of militants attacked a security picket in south Kashmir’s Shopian.“Militants in the afternoon fired upon the guard post deployed at Shopian’s Zainapora,” said a Srinagar-based police spokesman. “The militants fired indiscriminately as they approached the post. Three policemen manning the picket died on the spot and the fourth injured policeman died later in a hospital.”The Zainapora area houses a ‘minority’ colony and is guarded round the clock.Breaks lullThe shooting at the picket is the first major attack in the past more than one month and breaks a lull that had been created by the security forces’ ongoing offensive against militant outfits in south Kashmir. The stepped up operations in November, which left 37 militants dead, had deterred attacks on the security forces.Authorities identified the deceased policemen as Abdul Majeed Ganaie, Mehraj-ud-din Dar, Anees Ahmad Mir and Hameed-ul-lah Ganaie, all locals.In a statement issued in Srinagar to local news agencies, the Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) outfit claimed responsibility for the attack.“I strongly condemn the attack on the police post in Shopian and condole the deaths of police personnel in the line of duty,” said National Conference vice president and former chief minister Omar Abdullah. “I pray for their souls.”Condemning the attack, Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti said, “It bears repetition, violence achieves nothing but destruction. I express my solidarity with the families of jawans. I am relieved that no harm was caused to any civilians in the minority pocket they guarded.”last_img read more

Authorities seek public help identifying North County Apple Store burglars

first_img August 8, 2018 Updated: 3:25 PM Authorities seek public help identifying North County Apple Store burglars Posted: August 8, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, center_img KUSI Newsroom SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Authorities reached out to the public Wednesday for help in identifying a group of thieves responsible for a seven-month series of grab-and-run thefts at North County Apple store locations.The burglary spree in Carlsbad and Escondido has led to injuries in several cases and is believed to be related to similar crimes throughout California, according to police. In all, the losses statewide have exceeded $750,000, officials said.While carrying out the heists, the thieves — black men who appear to be in their 20s, possibly accompanied by a woman — have generally worn hooded jackets or sweatshirts with the cowls pulled up over their heads and mostly concealing their faces.In most cases, after scooping up high-end merchandise off display tables, the crooks have bolted to a waiting getaway vehicle. On several occasions, witnesses have been hurt while trying in vain to stop the fleeing robbers, police said.Surveillance cameras in the targeted businesses have captured numerous images of the thieves.Anyone who might be able to help identify the perpetrators is asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
