Advertising Feature

Do you aspire to run a SOHO business. 

Nothing beats working from home.

  • More and more people are dropping out of the rat race to provide services and/or goods from home. Start part-time and build until you can drop the "day job."
  • For many, it may be the "best option" (ex., the stay-at-home spouse or the retired).
  • For others, it may be the only option (ex., house-bound because have to care for a disabled family member).
  • And it has even proven to be a excellent (if unexpected) opportunity for hundreds of thousands (ex., the "downsized"). But...

    This area is fraught with "get rich quick" schemes, so evaluate the opportunities carefully. Anything that offers great rewards for no-or-low work is a fraud (think about it -- why would they need you?).

Bookworms Corner

'The Richest Man in Babylon' by George S. Clason first published in 1926, remains to this date the most enduring book on the subject of wealth creation.  Set in the background of the ancient civilization of Babylon where it is said that the streets were paved with gold, the book outlines the principles of how to achieve success.  To bring your desires and ambitions to fulfillment you must be successful with money.  Like the Law of Gravity, financial principles are universal and unchanging.  Here are some gems from the book.

"If you have not acquired more than a bare existence since we were youths, it is because you have either failed to learn the laws that govern the building of wealth, or else you do not observe them..."

"Wealth is power.  With wealth many things are possible"

"Men of action are favored by the goddess of good luck"

Appropriately set in Babylon a civilization known for its wisdom, enterprise and justice, it is a must read for all progressive minded person.

Just Relax

Here is list of  universal principles

Competence

  • In a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence

  • In time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out its duties

  • Work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence

Substitution

  • Look after the molehills and the mountains will look after themselves

  • Spend sufficient time in confirming the need and the need will disappear

Meetings

  • If you cannot convince them, confuse them

  • Never argue with a fool - people might not know the difference

  • If a problem causes many meetings, the meetings eventually become more important than the problem

  • The efficiency of a meeting is inversely proportional to the number of participants and the time spent on the deliberations 

Procrastination

  • Procrastination shortens the job and places the responsibility for its termination on someone else   (probably the authority who imposed the deadline)

  • Procrastination avoids boredom; one never has the feeling that there is nothing important to do

  • It may eliminate the job if the need passes before the job can be done
