Pinetown Peak-Hour Traffic – KwaZulu Natal

I have been driving to Pinetown for a few years now, and I have to say I hate the peak-hour traffic. I guess we all get stuck in traffic on a daily basis, it’s just about accepting the fact, and being a bit patient with the other drivers.

I accept the fact that there is a lot of traffic in Pinetown on a daily basis and during peak hour, everyone is rushing to get to work, or get home. We can let the traffic effect us, or we can just go with the flow.

The Five Year Mark – An awesome adventure

Well, I just finished reading “The Five Year Mark”, by Mike Saunders. I have to say I enjoyed the book. It was great to be able to follow Mike over the past 2 days on some of his exciting adventures, in both work and personal growth.

I don’t know Mike on a personal note and have never met him in person, but he seems like a very humble person, that is passionate about success and leadership.

The book was easy to read and easy to relate too. I would recommend it to anyone going into a leadership position, to see leadership from a motivational perspective.

How To Recover From a Total Burnout – Both Mentally and Physically

I think the hardest thing for me to do today, was admit a total burnout, mentally and physically. As an entrepreneur, we keep pushing the limits and hoping that something that we have done, is going to be the next breakthrough. It’s like we cant stop and we are always thinking about something.

I find it hard to relax, and I find it hard to just forget about everything, even for a few minutes. I wish my mind would just stop. I wish I could blank out, and not think about anything.

The Five Year Mark – First Impressions

Today, I picked up my copy of “The Five Year Mark“, a book which I have been dying to get my hands on.

There is something amazing about peeling open the first page of a book and it’s dedicated to God, and all the people that made it possible.

This just shows what an amazingly humble person Mike Saunders really is. He is an amazing husband, father, friend and inspirational leader and entrepreneur. It’s leaders like Mike, that were born to lead.

Take a Step Back – Focus on Your Employee’s Strengths

Sometimes in life you need to take a step back, and look at things from a different point of view. It’s tough when you are the owner of a business and you know there are bills that need to be paid.

As a business owner, all that you can focus on is making money. And if these bills don’t get paid, you risk loosing everything that you have worked so hard to build and nurture over the years.

Meditation – Calming The Overactive Mind

Have you ever tried meditation? Have you ever lay in bed after a hard day’s work, and you close your eyes, but your mind keeps racing from one idea to the next. It feels like you are on a roller coaster, as your thoughts jump from one subject to another.

The funny thing is that most of the time, your mind rambles on about stupid little things, such as trying to sort out everything that you have gone through during the day. Or you will find yourself, trying to remind yourself of something that you just can’t afford to forget in the morning.

Will Smith – I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill

Will Smith is one of the most inspiring and influential celebrities in the world. If you grew up in the 90’s, then you probably picture him as the wacky character, that he played in “Fresh Prince Of Bel- Air”, but there is an extremely intelligent, self-disciplined, laser-focused and passionate person, behind the scenes.

I think the most inspiring thing about this interview with Will Smith is that this shows exactly how determined and committed, he really is. Fame and fortune don’t just happen, without putting in the time, effort and hard work.

Break Through The Fucken Wall – Do what it takes to be successful !!!

I can’t even begin to explain how many people complain that it’s hard to make money. The truth it that you will probably need to do more than one job. Doing the same job every day is just boring. Doing the same job every day will get you nowhere.

To be successful, you need to break through the fucken wall. Keep pushing your limits. Keep trying new things. Keep asking questions, and keep bettering yourself. Don’t give up when things get tough.

Living The Laptop Lifestyle – Work from anywhere in the world

It’s amazing how the world has changed over the past few years. If you are anything like me, you have been traveling to work for most of your working life.

Just imagine how much time you have wasted sitting in traffic, traveling from one place to another. Imagine how much more productive you would be if you could wake up and start working immediately.

The Premium Product – Charging a premium price will limit your target market

We all like to believe that we have the perfect product, and for some of us, this is probably true. But the problem is that you can’t just jump into the market with a premium product that most people can’t afford, without showing the customer what makes your product, a premium product.

It’s simple if people can’t see the value in a product, they are just not going to buy it. You can do whatever you want to try to sell the product, but if it’s overpriced, you will probably do more harm to your business than anything else.
