Positive thinking in business and life. Steve Jobs Reality distortion field [Video]

The day after the night before and the new video is up!

If you read the last post you would know I really tried to make this video informative but keep it moving so it never got boring. Would love to hear your feedback.

What is it about?

In this video i’m talking about the something attributed to Steve Jobs in almost any documentary you watch about him. His ability to change the norms, see things the way he wanted to make them and push his way towards that vision.

I decided to break it down into personal and interpersonal skills.

There are also mentions of young entrepreneurs Jamal Edwards and Lilly Singh.

Also I added some questions at the end for discussion. You could answer here or on the YouTube page.

1. Do you have any examples of when using the reality distortion field has helped you to achieve something?

2. When has somebody else’s RDF affected you in a positive way and who?

Hope you enjoy!

Nathaniel GE,

See You In 5.

Second attempt at a quote picture.

The first full week of 2016 is pretty much already over.

Next week I will turn 26.

Right now i’m reflecting on the past week. What did I achieve, what did I not get round to doing and how can I make sure I do those things in the coming week.

Also thinking about the year in general and things I would like to achieve.

Which systems need to be put in place to allow us to guarantee we achieve what we said we wanted to? Ie a daily schedule. Something to consider.

Hope you all had a great week.

Have a great weekend.

Nathaniel GE,

Maximising your day the Casey Neistat way

I wanted to post something for you guys before I head off to work.

Maybe you are thinking about the things you want to achieve in 2016 and how you can go about finding the time to do those things.

I’ve been watching Casey Neistat on YouTube for about 2 months now, but it feels more like a year because he posts awesome vlogs everyday.

This is one of my favourites because it’s about time management and productivity.

In this video Casey lays out how crams so much into each day. Bare in mind this guy runs a YouTube channel with almost 2million subscribers, films and edits a vlog everyday, co-owner of a startup app company called Beme which he runs in New York, and spends time with his family everyday.

After I watched this video I sat down and laid out my 24hr day and how I want to be.

It was actually a great task because I immediatley became aware of where I need to use my time and how early I need to wake up if I want to realistically achieve the things I want to in a day.

It was also a bit of a slap in the face as to realsing you really have to be selective about what you work on each day and throughout the week having a weekly goal in mind if you really want to achieve any momentum and get things done.

Still working on that. The 4am starts haven’t happened yet. Im trying to win the battle against snooze.

Have a great sunday and I hope this post is off benefit to you.

If you would like to go further into a time management technique there is a video I made on it here.

Guddhism // The problem with dreaming.

I have to say that I believe the dreaming, getting inspired part is extremely important. The problem is, you can get stuck at that stage. A stage I know too well.

You crave the adrenalin of ‘you can do anything’ and you feel pumped. Then you feel down because other than talking and planning you haven’t done anything, so you need that kick again.

It becomes a spiral which gets you nowhere closer to your actual goal.

So the key is to do. I realised this and that is why I started this blog. There are other things I want to do but at least now I am getting into the habit of doing, committing to a project and building something which has the potential to be pretty cool.

I think the problem is, the actual doing part is not always as fun as the initial excitement of having the idea. Because when you have the idea, you picture the end goal. Before you get to that stage there is a lot of work involved.

Yesterday I woke up and realised I needed to post a SaturdayShort. Which made me realise I need to be ready with something every weekend. Which is good, because it means I’m already getting a lesson in the consistency, planning and dedication it takes to create something and keep it alive.

I checked the stats of the blog in the evening and the SaturdayShort had some views from Czech Republic, which was really cool for me. To think there were people in Czech Republic watching a Saturday Short on my site is like a taste of that end vision I had at the start.

Thats without mentioning all of the views and follows from my midweek post Head In the clouds (Poem).

Have a great week and keep dreaming of those ideas you have to better yourself or build something.

Just don’t forget to wake up and start to do.

Even just do what I am doing by starting some sort of project that gets you into the habit of thinking creatively and being consistent.

Nathaniel GE.
