Evernote – Remember everything and save anything in one place.

evernote

Are you someone who has a poor understanding of life and work balance, always thinking about everything? You need a tool that will help you remember everything and save anything in one place.

One of my favorite tools is EVERNOTE, the world’s best way to organize your life. It is not only your digital notebook, but it is the extension of your mind.

Evernote let you remember all the information coming at you in whatever way was easiest at the time, whether it was audio, images, text, web clips or documents. One place where you can put everything and always be able to find it. You can search for the words in it and find it, that’s the new definition of what productivity should be.

Evernote is a tool that is simple and flexible, and is fairly free-form, so you can create whatever structure works best for you. I use Evernote as my “digital brain” to store ideas, notes, web clips, receipts, recipes, important documents, event details, and more. I couldn’t get along without it.

PicMonkey

how to use picmonkey

Picture Editing is one of my favorite hobbies. I have used many different tools to edit my pictures from Picasa, Print artist, Picture IT and so on, except Photoshop. How I wish I know how to use Photoshop but I’m much excited to start editing my pictures than studying how to of Photoshop.

 I use PicMonkey instead and I’m able to turn boring images into better, more eye-catching visual masterpieces for my blog and social media post. It’s an awesome site that lets you edit images for free without having to register or download any software. PicMonkey is a browser-based app that allows anyone with a flash-supporting computer and Internet access to utilize the app.

For a quick and easy way to alter your images for any reason, PicMonkey has a lot to offer.  Tools are comprehensible and the functionality is incredible even for the free account. Each function can be added to an image with a simple click of the button and altered depending on your needs and artistic expressions. 

Images can be saved in .jpg or .png file types only, which is perfect for sharing on a website or across social media platforms.

It’s fun, fast, and easy. Try it out and let me know what you think! 

Pocket

how to use pocket

I love reading books, ebooks and articles on the internet. Every time I come across an article, web page, or video I want to read at another time I just use the bookmarklet to save it to my Pocket account. It automatically syncs to your phone, tablet or computer so you can view it at any time, even without an internet connection. If I have something in Pocket that I want to save for reference I can export it to Evernote which serves as my long-term filing system.

One of Pocket’s biggest new features is the ability to filter by content type; you can sort by image, video, and traditional text. Filtering by video reveals a grid of thumbnails of videos you’ve saved across Vimeo, YouTube, and other services. You can tag articles for easy sorting and filter. Pocket also parses the content from pages you save, and strips away unnecessary formatting, ads and more, so the reading experience is seamless.

It’s a great tool to organize all of the information you consume.

WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.
WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins and widgets and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination.
These are the main reasons to consider using WordPress for a new website:
WordPress designs are based on “Themes”. WordPress software allows anyone to create and edit new
web pages and blog “posts” using only a web browser.

Whether you’re an experienced blogger or new to this electronic expression of your thoughts, you’ll find every feature you’d ever need from traffic tracking, widget addition and even spell check.

TEDz : DISC Index

DISC-TedzAs a requirement in our OMC Groups Formation I am required to take the DISC Index test. DISC Index is a modern interpretation of behavioral dimensions. DISC Index will help us understand our behavioral style and how to maximize our potential,  and here is the result of my DISC Index Test. disc1disc3disc-natural-style

My natural style is “D” it is the way I tend to behave when I’m not thinking about it. This is where I am most comfortable (natural). This is also the style I will revert back to when under the stress or moving too quickly to be consciously thinking about modifying my behavior. This is the style I should seek  to be true in my daily roles. The following statements are true to just my unique natural style.

  • Forward thinking on planning ideas and activities related to the big picture.
  • The High D traits along with the Lower S and C traits, allow decisions to be made quickly and easily.
  • Responsive and move quickly to maximize results.
  • The High D traits bring a direct, bottom-line orientation
  • The High I traits allow for a sensitivity  to people
  • A hard driver, even in the face of opposition.
  • Is seen by others as a mover & shaker and one who loves to compete with the best.
  • Shows strong ability to easily take command of a project or a situation.
  • When the climate is favorable the High I nature allows for optimism and friendly effect.
  • When the climate becomes antagonistic, the High D nature presents a tough and determined response.
  • Can be seen as the hub of the wheel with many activities occurring simultaneously, while maintaining knowledge and control of each.
  • Brings a high sense of urgency for results and will put pressure on herself and others to reach a successful solution while maintaining an optimistic attitude
  • Able to jump into the middle of the project-in-process, accept control and responsibility, get people on board, and make decisions quickly.
  • Brings enthusiasm, optimism, and a drive to succeed with team projects. Solves problems with people with people and results in mind.
  • Maintains optimism for herself and others, even in the long haul on a project.
  • Strong ability to motivate and manage others through optimistic attitude and firm delegation of tasks.
  • Has the ability to reduce barriers to performance that others place around themselves and lead them to success.
  • Able to multi-task in a variety of areas, maintaining control over many projects simultaneously.

Now I understand my natural behavioral style and how to maximize my potential more effectively.

I am TEDz  demanding, driving, forceful,  daring, determined, competitive, responsible, inquisitive, persuasive, inspiring, enthusiastic, sociable, charming, convincing,  systematic and  analytical. Ready to be an asset to your TEAM.

 

Opening my Mind

opening your mindI now started my Online Mentoring Club Lessons. My first assignment is to buy a nice paper notebook, a ball pen, and I will be writing the PROMISE to myself. I want my descendants to see this. This notebook will be a witness even I’ve forgotten it after 10 years and will tell to myself “I’m glad I wrote these.” Everyday I will fill up one whole page of my notebook, writing down same resolutions. A vision on how I see myself 10 years from now.


“I’m a home-based entrepreneur, I do home-based business. I’m starting a home-based business that I envision to become the Google of Home-based Businesses”


 Words I tell to myself matter than what I think,                                           so that exercise of writing words repeatedly is                                                 SIMPLE way to change the words  I SECRETLY tell to myself.
