How to Work Remotely and Still Be the Best

The Remote Worker’s Tool Belt

Starting a new remote or work from home gig, be it a contract project or a full-time job, can be a little intimidating if you’re used to going into an office day after day.

With this post, I hope to enumerate some of the best practices that I’ve picked up for working in a variety of situations. The remote and work from home guide here ranges from specific recommendations for software and hardware, to tips for hitting your team’s deadlines. read more


The New Wave of Entrepreneurship

There is a multi-trillion dollar economy opening up to technology faster than ever. It has been driven by trends that have changed the nature of how entrepreneurs will be characterized going forward; specifically, industry executives will be the next wave of in-demand startup CEOs.

new wave of entrepreneurship

In April of 2007, Apple changed everything with the launch of the iPhone. It is hard to imagine that it has only been 8 years since the release of the first truly pervasive smartphone, but there is no denying its impact has been world-changing. Beyond the creation of a new dimension of industry-driven, by location-based, services (and with it, a myriad of billion dollar companies), an equally significant phenomenon emerged. By creating technology that was intuitive to the consumer masses, every person around the world started to embrace technology as more than just a work tool. Lawyers, doctors, car mechanics and people from every sector of the economy not only had a tool for productivity, but a piece of technology in their pocket they embraced as an intimate part of their lives. read more

20 shard lessons sam haider

20 Hard Lessons I learned before turning 20

  • Life has already begun. There is no interlude. Nor is there a trial version. Your every decision matters.
  • Your online friends are fake friends. Unfortunately, it’s true. Most of them do not care about you and will not come in your hour of need.
  • If you fall in love, be ready to get your heart broken. It is tough and it hurts.
  • Your studying career does not end after prom. Knowledge is crucial. If you are not willing to be left behind, keep studying.
  • Your family members are the most important people in your life. They are the only ones who care about you. Treat them well and appreciate them.
  • Your weaknesses do not matter. Learn to accept this. The only things that matter are your strengths. Improve them.
  • Everything worth doing takes years. Do not expect to reach your goals too quickly. It will probably take much longer than you imagine.
  • All the opportunities for growth are beyond your comfort zone. Make leaving it a habit. Find your discomfort zone. Enter it.
  • Broken relationships are not worth staying in. Do not waste your time on things you cannot fix anymore. Let them go and move ahead.
  • The world is full of injustice. There are plenty of unjust things you are likely to face within your lifetime. Be ready!
  • Luck comes to those who work hard. Good things do not come to those who wait. Persistence and hard work are the only prerequisites for luck.
  • There is no perfect moment to start. If you want to start doing something, act now. Do not wait for a better moment. It will never come.
  • You cannot be everywhere and have everything. Learn to make the right choices and commit to the things that matter most.
  • Every person in your life should be appreciated. Do not take people for granted.
  • Experience and emotions are your best investments. The traditional measures of success — fancy cars and houses — are no longer relevant. Emotions, memories, experience, knowledge. These are the things that matter.
  • Later often means never. Do not postpone anything. Live now!
  • Success equals perseverance. Do not give up. Stay dedicated to your dreams. Chasing them is difficult, but it’s worth the struggle.
  • Regular workouts are crucial. Take care of your health and body. Exercise regularly and make sure you are in a good shape.
  • Your failures do not matter. Only wins count. Therefore, do not be afraid to fail.
  • Nobody will help you. You have to help yourself.

    What to do when you are losing something ?

    Well, it`s a sudden change of a mood, I am writing this note for myself and for future. Because when things go wrong you just can`t hold yourself up for anything, You just get mad and want some alone time. But in realiy you need someone to talk to, who can understand the problem and suggest you way. Even though you might know all of them but because of the tension, depression and anxiety your brain is not recalling the solution. As some one said

    Problem is not the real problem, Your attitude towards is the problem.

    Life is a roler coaster. So, you get downs and up easily. You feel very low and bad and like Sh*t when you are loosing something or you can`t hold the control or things go out of the plan. Most of people feel bad when stuff like this happens. But, HERE IS THE THING Just like Countries, Big Organizations, Companies, Governments doesn`t work with-out proper structure and plannings, This whole world doesn`t work on it`s own. Trees don`t grow them self, Rain just doesn`t happens, Fruit just doesn`t grow anywhere. Everything is structured and well planned. But the questions is who is planning and working and running this World. As I am a Muslim (By God`s Grace) I beleive The Almighty God ALLAH Ta`allaa have layed out every structure of this world and Your LIFE. Yes, you read it right. Ever wondered why monks are the happy always? Because they kill thier Ego and thier wishes. If you kill them you are the happiest person. And don`t you ever worry of what you will loose if you don`t complete a task on a timeline. Because everything you NEED to get will come to you, with time. I am not saying that don`t do anything and leave it to God, Put your HARD efforts, work as hard as you can. But if you don`t get the results you want. Trust me God got your cover. If you are losing something and you just can`t get control of it, let it loose. Let it go. Busy yourself with other stuff. Trust me, you will get better option then what you will loose. Talk to people and listen thier problems and you will feel like the Gratitude. It is how this life works. If you are trying to get something you should not have. You just can`t get it ANYWAY. Take it easy and live every day as it is the last day of your life. Hack : Feel Thankfull and you will get alot of stuff you can`t think of. If you are muslim say Al Hum Du LILLAH every hour. :) Please do let me know how feel about my blog in comments.

    3 points from the Inner Strength by Tony Robbins

    First, this is not my personal blog. This is My one of very few friend, Pixie  Faizah Fee thoughts.

    3 points  from the <Inner Strength> by Tony Robbins

    Personally, I was never one for the “self-help/ finding the inner you” type of literature, but since it was an assignment, I thought why not? To be honest, what Mr. Robbins is saying in the book should be a part of our everyday life, sadly people in our society actually need someone to give them a text like this to understand and find his or her self, but it is better than nothing. read more

    Stop Learning About Entrepreneurship and Start Doing the Work

    There’s a simple explanation why some businesses see explosive growth. There’s a reason successful entrepreneurs seem invincible, and why everything they teach becomes something we read about in the news. Instead of dragging you along this whole article, I’ll tell you what the reason is and then I’ll explain: They do the work.

    We live in a time when information, and access to information, is readily available. If you own a smartphone, you can download an entire course on entrepreneurship through your podcast app. This has been great, but also a problem for entrepreneurs today. read more
