The record store: Thank you, it was great while it lasted. I use to love going to the record store. It was the main reason I would go to the mall.
I use to look at all the new music that was just released and check out the classic albums too. The vinyl albums had great artwork and all kinds of info on the back. They were huge and you could spend hours leafing through each genre, exploring and discovering.
I always went to the record store as soon as I got to the mall. I would spend most of my time there while the girlfriend shopped. My whole teenage years where spent there. But as with everything, the record store started to change. Unless you want to go the way of the dinosaur you have to learn how to adapt to change. This is what we teach and write about in our series of books.
ice age proportions.
The record store vs iTunes. No matter how passionate, how dedicated, how in love you were with the records store, it was only a matter of time before you would need to say goodbye to it.
iTunes killed the record store like the ice age killed the dinosaur. It was easy access, instant access and a huge volume of music, movies, and all other entertainment. On top of that they gave you multiple ways to play your music on a variety of devices.
As I adapted to the change and seen the benefits of buying my music in this new way I was forced to replace the record store with the restaurant at the mall that serves Beer and has sports on the T.V. Now my wife drops me off their while she shops. Change is rough! But we all have to make comprises.
So I say Thank you to the record store. It was great while it lasted. (I hope iTunes doesn't get into the restaurant business!!!)

There is a battle happening right now. There are two sides that are fighting. They are both fighting for the same thing, the survival of their very existence.
This battle has no good sides or bad sides. Both sides believe they have the right to exist. Both sides want to dominate.
The only viable option is to co-exist. This is what needs to happen but neither side wants to compromise. Neither side wants to be defeated. But in this battle of two there is a judge. This judge will ultimately decide who will dominate and who will compromise. This battle will have an ending, it will be a happy ending but the road to that happy ending will take time. It is not something that can be resolved over a few beers, more likely it will take many years.
The battle of the two started long ago, as language was developed so were the seeds of this battle. In the beginning, one was to dominate while the other lay dormant. The other stayed dormant for many years and everything was tranquil. But as time persisted and the one grew, this growth lead to the awakening of the other. And so the battle of two began.

It is that wonderful time of year again. The time of year where we get to relax in front of the T.V and watch one of the most exciting sports, the NFL.
It is awesome watching each team compete and develop and watching players become stars and super stars right before our eyes.
But there is a lot more to the sport than just competition and entertainment. In Chapter 7 of our book “Your Invincible Power” I wrote about how the NFL influenced me and made me a great manager. Continue reading Discover the NFL’s Hidden Gifts→
Finding the time to do the things you want may seem hard but with a little effort and some planning you can pick up minutes throughout the day and week.
Here are 5 easy ways to create more time for your business or personal development.
The Early Bird Gets The Worm.
It is true. When you start your day a few minutes earlier you have gained valuable minutes. Maybe there is some quick and easy work you can do on the computer before you start your day. If you are running a part-time business and you are trying to build your social media presents, utilizing this time is a great way to do it. I always post on twitter and Facebook in the early hours before my day starts. It is an easy way to create more time.
The “To Do List”
Making a list of the things you want to accomplish for the week is a great way to stay on task and create more time. It is easy to sit at the computer and get distracted by emails, You Tube videos, Facebook & Twitter feeds. Making a list of what you want to accomplish each week will force you to set time aside to tackle it and keep you from watching the latest dancing cat video!
That’s right. Instead of sitting in the lunch room or going out for lunch, log into your personal tablet or account and tackle something on your list during your lunch break. Make sure you are using your own resources and time, maybe you need to work in your car or drive to the park but it is a great way to gain time to build your business or work on your personal development.
This one might sound strange to you but if you PVR your shows you can work on your business or personal development and not miss anything. Try to use your time to complete your list. When you need a break you can watch one of your shows and then go back to work. Plus you get to skip the advertising so you spend less time in front of the tube and have created more time for you.
Relax and Have Fun
You need to enjoy what you do and have fun doing it. It is a lot easier working on your projects or yourself if it is something that you want to do. If you are doing it for any other reason it will feel like work and you know what happens when it feels like work, you try to find excuses not to do it. Make sure whatever you are working on is a fun way to spend your time. Have a beer or drink wine while you are working on your projects at home. This will ensure that it doesn’t feel like work. Play music while you work and take time to interact with those around you.
If you are feeling pressure or stress while you are working on the project, stop and take that TV break. Do not let urgency into your plan. Keep it fun and relaxed. Your goal is to create more time so you can work at an easy pace.
And remember, if fun is not on the menu, you need to change the restaurant.
