It is so easy to waste time when you should be working and to end up working unreasonable hours. Internet work can seemly turn into an addiction overnight if you don’t set specific work hours and stick with them.
2. Schedule play hours
Don’t spend your work hours playing – surfing the net, visiting internet forums or participating in chat rooms. Set aside leisure time for such activities if you are prone to them.
3. Schedule communications
Set specific times during your work hours to open email. This should usually be the first thing and the last thing you do each work day. If you open your email periodically and respond to it, your work hours can be eaten up in a hurry! Turn off any indicators that tell you you’ve got new email.
4. Block the SPAM
Use a SPAM blocker to isolate or block SPAM email and keep it up to date. Use a separate email address for your business and personal email. Open personal email during your leisure time and business email during your scheduled communication time within your work hours.
5. Make a long-term plan
Make a long-term plan of what you wish to accomplish through your internet marketing. Having a vision with milestones and deadlines will keep you focused and working purposefully day after day.
6. Plan your days
Plan your days ahead of time with a “to do” list that ensures important things will get accomplished. Always plan a little time for unexpected interruptions or demanding little emergencies.
7. Kill the messenger
If you use messenger programs such as MSN Messenger or Yahoo Messenger, log out during your work hours. If you conduct business communications through the messenger program, open separate accounts or block contacts so that only your business associates that you need to be available to can contact you via the messenger program during your work hours.

I learned this, that if you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams, and endeavor to live the life which you have imagined, you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. You will put some things behind, you will pass an invisible boundary, new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within you; or the old laws will be expanded, and interpreted in your favor in a more liberal sense, and you will live with the license of a higher order of beings.

If you look for the truth outside yourself, it gets farther and farther away. Today, walking alone, I meet him everywhere I step. He is the same as me, yet I am not him. Only if you understand it in this way will you merge with the way things are.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love;

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying (to self) that we are born to eternal life.

Insomnia or insomnolence as it is better known is a badly understood affliction. In fact, you will find that insomnia is both a cause and an effect on its own – and hence, finding the root problem is difficult. There are so many insomnia facts to be had in different books; the insomnia facts collected in this document are meant to tutor the viewer on the outlines of this predicament.
The Insomnia Facts That You Could do with knowing
1. Insomnia or lack of sleep can be of two types, i.e. (i) transient and (ii) intermittent. The former is when one experiences tossing and turning for a period of maximum 2-3 weeks; while the intermittent insomnia is when this gets repeated once in a while. This will mostly be a possible cause of an underlying condition, such as anxiety, depression, drug abuse, etc.
2. Then there is the chronic insomnia – this is when tossing and turning will last for more than 30 consecutive days and your body feels and reacts to the shortfall of sleep.
3. Women over 60 years are more prone to suffer from insomnia than any other category of people. This will be further aggravated if the person was previously suffering from severe anxiety. In A number of cases, insomnia can be induced by medication.
4. The diseases that usually result in insomnia (depending on the health background of the person) are asthma, kidney conditions, narcolepsy, Parkinson’ s disease, heart troubles, hypertension, hyper-thyroid, arthritis among others. If you suffer from one or more of the above, then insomnia may become part and parcel of your life.
5. You are said to suffer from insomnia even if you are woken up often during the night; this is because unless you have at least 2-3 hours of uninterrupted sleep the body can really be troubled by the lack.
Some Insomnia Facts That Will help you
If you are at a loss for what to do when you undergo these insomnia attacks, try using the following insomnia facts as home remedial measures till you get to a doctor, nurse or pharmacist for a proper diagnosis and first aid.

“The only disability in life is a bad attitude.” – Scott Hamilton
Attitude is so important. It is probably the most important thing worth talking about in all the self -help material you will come across. Why; because attitude controls your mind which controls everything. It’s what makes the difference between a good athlete and a poor one; a successful entrepreneur or a failure; a great artist/musician and a poor one. Hamilton, our author today was no stranger to disability; he was two years old when he contracted a mysterious illness that caused him to stop growing. He was misdiagnosed as having cystic fibrosis and was told by doctors at one point that he had 6 months to live. Diet and exercise cured the problem though Hamilton achieved only a height of 5 feet 2 inches in his life-time. He didn’t allow disability to stop him. In 1981 ’82 and ’83 Scott Hamilton won the gold medal in the World Figure Skating Championships, and won the gold medal at the 1984 Winter Olympics.
But Hamilton is not the only example of men and women overcoming great obstacles in their lives. There is Helen Keller, blind and deaf from a very young age; President Abraham Lincoln who rose from being a bare foot poor boy from Missouri, to becoming a self taught layer who eventually became our 16th President of the United States. The list goes on and on of people defeating the odds against them armed with simply a good attitude. A bad attitude can stop any man or woman’s dream.
What is the secret to attaining the great attitude we talk so much about? Art Link letter said it this way: “Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.” That is the magic formula and nothing more or less.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt campaigned from a wheel chair and won the Presidential election in 1933. He served an unprecedented 4 terms in office from 1933-1945 serving as a handicapped person serving through some of the toughest times our country has ever seem seen including the great depression and the 2nd world war.
Hamilton is right when he says the only disability is a bad attitude. A bad attitude can prevent you from getting a job by acting poorly on a job interview, it can break up marriages and drive a person to use street drugs or become chemically Dependant. A bad attitude can keep a beaten house-wife to stay with her brutal husband till he finally beats her to death; it can keep us all imprisoned to our own bonds of self-limitation if we allow it. It makes us all make bad choices in life which leads to nowhere and can make us penniless pawns of society. Having a bad attitude has a bad ending in store for all who choose that road of self indulgence and self pity which is where a bad attitude always leads in the end.
It is best to make the best of your life, what ever the cards are that you were dealt, and put a smile on your face and brave the day, each and every new day. Greet it with a good attitude and watch the difference it makes. Someone once said life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you deal with it. That is why having a good attitude is so important. Having a good attitude empowers you and when you are empowered you can empower others you meet. Today give it a try and put on that mask of a good attitude. Yes that’s right, sometimes you will have to fake it till you make but in the long run you will see that having a good attitude will get easier and easier until is comes as second nature to you. Today be empowered and decide to face your day with a good attitude!.
