Turn the page with your life everyday don’t let anybody make faster here how you doing today live in the moment right here plan for the future but remember the past is the past now remember the past we’ve all made mistakes in our past and we’ve all had great successes in our past but the focus of today’s video is.
That’s all in the past and to dwell on them or to relive those memories by.
Thinking that well if I only could do that like I used to be well it doesn’t do you any good the past.
Is the past again is your life and even the successes in your past close your eyes and visualize them and say hey maybe I can do this again but don’t just live on your past success like the high school quarterback that now can t his unemployed and obese and miserable but he cracks up in a Barren that says yeah I remember 35 years ago when I was the. Quarterback well I wouldn’t.
Dwell on it same thing if you if you had a really bad situation and made some big mistakes er hey I’ve been divorced a couple times I’ve I’m not proud of some of the things I’ve done in the past but.
Again learn from them but then move on the past is the past don’t dwell on the past don’t focus on the past you got to focus on the moment the here and now and I have I have several videos about that you can check them out and you can.
Plan on the future maybe even dream a little about a better future but you got to live in a moment.
To work toward that and remember the past is the past so and why is that important well you want to be a successful person when having a good life right that’s.
One of the ways it’s going to happen for you so think about that one take a walk enjoy life for more videos like this check out live life 365 subscribe to my youtube channel by the same name till next time peace research fine this is the path not in the past that’s a pet fast path that’s a.
Turn the page with your life everyday don’t let anybody know okay Mike foster here you know I play my guitar every day because it makes me feel happy and it gives me positive energy and today’s video is about positive energy versus negative energy now some of you are probably saying well why would you even have a video about.
This Mike we all know that negative energy is bad right and that positive energy is good but here’s the.
Deal there’s so many folks out there and think about people that you know people that you meet during the day that exude negative energy sometimes it’s customer service and you could tell that they don’t like their job and they’re imparting upon you their negative view of the world think about some of the TV shows that.
You watch or the news stations that you read about or that.
You see on television or that you see online or on your smartphone and it’s all negative negative negative negative and you think to yourself boy the world’s a piece.
Of everything’s crap everything is just negative I feel just terrible well this is another.
I like that I have a whole bunch of new episodes.
Videos about verses it could be eggs versus you know chicken egg versus quail egg or it could be negative energy versus positive energy and think about the negative people that you may run into daily hopefully if they’re family or friends or coworkers that you are strong enough to stay away from them because positive energy.
About positive energy is something that will help you to live a longer healthier happier of course positive life.
And by exuding positive energy you’re gonna be healthier you’re gonna be a healthier person do you know they say they’ve been studies that they say that negativity actually causes and that’s true you can google it you can debate it but it’s true just like positive energy and they talk about the positive energy even of prayer that people pray for people that are sick or pray to make sure that you know things are going to be as good as they want.
Them to be even though it doesn’t always work it’s positive it’s an attitude it’s an energy and it’s something.
That you need to do in your life to have the best possible life now some people say it’s a bunch of bullcrap Mike it’s all who we know what I say negative negative energy all.
Is to focus on the positive it’s to not get caught up in the negative it’s to stay away from negative.
Negativity and just surround yourself with positive people you know I’m very very blessed because I’ve been with the same woman for 25 years and she’s the most positive person that I know in my life and she looks at the bright side she.
Positive energy and she spreads it around all the time and her mom’s the same way and you know.
That you could call it a Pollyanna attitude but it’s like if you give people to benefit about and if you think that you can make a difference by exuding positive energy it goes a long way toward having a happy successful healthy life and sometimes we all get depressed we all get a little down we all.

Hi everyone, it’s me Niharika and a big, bighello to you from the beautiful city Auckland. Yes, yes I have traveled all the way to NewZealand from India on training assignment. Well I am bringing you this session from Aucklanddomain and it’s just so amazing and peaceful out here. Now I’m sitting in the woods and.
Somethingjust came to my mind because a lot of people these days love saying that, “I love travelling.” Well it is now a very common phrase that peopleuse these days, right? But I’m sure that they do love. But you know what’s my travel like?.
Well my travel teaches me different lessons.
Well you know traveling can teach you morethan a classroom, more than a job or even a relationship that ever will. For me the real world means, packing up andleaving your comfort zone.
You know it’s, it’s leaving your familiarsafe place and experiencing unknown things.
Place, new people who may not even understandyou, new customs, oh my god, the list just goes on.
Well traveling is being in the real world.
Session I am gonna help youwith certain things that travelling teaches you. Well the first one is depending purely onyourself. Sometimes we don’t realize that how much peoplecan influence us in our everyday life, whether it’s our family, whether it’s.
Our friends,whether it’s your partner, whether it’s your.
Colleagues or your social surroundings. I had been putting too much emphasis on otherpeople’s opinions of what I should do and what I should not. You know, I used to not listen to myself,I used to not listen to my voice but guess what? Traveling on my own was the first time.
I couldreally say that I am truly dependent on myself more than ever without feeling bad about itor having it to explain it to myself.
You know I went to theUnited States all by myself it was like the longest flight ever. But since then I am such a changed personand that’s exactly the reason why I say that Travel has taught me so much. You know being an Indian and especially froma crazy city like Mumbai the fast-paced lifestyle is inevitably exhausting.
For anything, be it food at.
Therestaurant, the long queues in the restroom, even waiting for your professor or your bossto email you back, oh it just drives me crazy. Well the biggest lesson that I have learnedthrough my travels and of course through my backpacking, is that it’s okay to wait andhave lack time. And if something goes wrong, it’s all right,well you will get help.
That traveling isn’tit all luxurious like you know the way it is shown in advertisements, the way the.
Instagramstories, they just look so glamorous. You know your flights gets cancelled yourpilot gets stuck at the airport or probably you just get a stomach cramp, because youknow you’re not able to sleep. So these are all things that you learn andthat is when I say that with travel, comes. You know be it any trip, there are gonna becircumstances that you will face that are going to be difficult where you will haveto wait but guess what everything goes smoothly later it’s definitely not an adventure, ifthese things don’t exist. So patience is truly a virtue and you willlearn to tackle the circumstances when they.
Another thing that I learned frommy travel, ‘to leave your comfort zone’. You know people don’t enjoy traveling becauseit means leaving behind what’s comfortable for them.
So whether it’s leaving their group of friends,leaving their amazingly cozy air-conditioned room, their favorite food, their pets liketheir sweet little doggie or just a mere fact of.
Getting onto the plane, oh this is so stressfulfor all of them. But hey come on you need to expand your horizons. Once you do this there is no better feelingthan taking on an unfamiliar territory and making it familiar.
Takes is pulling the trigger and youwill come home with endless stories. Yes, like my travel right here in Auckland. I mean I can’t wait to go back and talk aboutthese endless.
Endless stories the amazing experience that I am having right now. Well the next thing that you learn is to trynew things.
Forced to come outof our shells no matter what.
The daily routineat home well doesn’t always work when you are traveling.
Well get adjustedpick up the language and try not to stick with what’s familiar.
Restaurant that serves the authenticfood that belongs to that country. Avoid the touristic restaurants where youwill get the same food that you eat at home. Take public transportation and learn the system. Every country has a different system.
Not learn it? It’s not difficult well yes first couple oftimes you will be a.
Little confused, a little nervous but then you’re gonna be okay. Now learning new activities is like an opportunitywhere you learn new things like hiking, sailing, flying in helicopter, you never know.
Thing, ‘making friends withstrangers’. Now if you are traveling alone, you definitelyneed.
Some human interaction and guess what every other traveler definitely wants humaninteraction as well. So when y’all meet, no matter from which countryare they from, well they would love to hear your stories and you will enjoy listeningto their stories. So be it their stories, be if their opinions,their advice. Well you would really build up an amazingglobal network by talking to them.
By interacting with them and it’s always beautiful to havefriends from different country. Well it’s one beautiful planet but yes weall.
Are so different and if we bond then wow, that’s definitely an.
Adventure and a new experience. So if you are traveling alone you will neverreally be alone as there will always be someone wanting to tag along with any kind of activitythat you are going for. So travelers on public trams or travelerson the plane or travelers on the.
Ship, you will meet people and you will interact withthem. So these are things that the travel have reallytaught me and it will teach you.
Hey Tina says coach Bruce giving you a quick video got my grandson Josh here this is called next generation you know I’m saying I’m talking about this guy’s gonna run the Empire Hey look want to talk to you about investment self investment is the best investment the here’s your work for today be obsessed with improvement that’s self improvement.

Sometimes we are so relieved to make it through the work day effectively that we avoid thinking about tomorrow.
But with a little planning, handy productivity tools, and a clear picture, every day can begin productively without a lot of effort.
Here are some things that you can do to start your work day right.
Review Your Tasks the Night Before
Part of effective time management is having a plan. For your week or just a day at a time, you are better prepared when you know what you have on your plate.
You do not have to spend a lot of time on this after you leave the office either. Review your schedule and tasks for the next day, the night before and get your morning off to an efficient start.
Check Your Calendar
Whether you use Google Calendar, Outlook, or another tool, take a good look at it the night before. Do you have an 8 AM meeting? Is there an important client visiting? Has your day been fully booked with a conference? Starting off your day productively includes knowing what the day holds.
Review Your Tasks
After viewing your calendar, you may notice that you have limited time to complete all the tasks on your list. In order to be prepared, prioritize those to-dos ahead of time. If you must decide which tasks are more urgent than others, a solid method is to use the Eisenhower Matrix.
With the Eisenhower Matrix, you put tasks into four different quadrants. These include Do First, Schedule, Delegate, and Don’t Do so you can quickly see which tasks should be tackled first, second, third, and fourth.
To prioritize effectively you need to be able to recognize what is important, as well as to see the difference between urgent and important.
Wake Up in a Nice Way
For most people, there is no worse sound than that loud, buzzing, annoying alarm clock. However, there are many alarm clock alternatives nowadays that wake you with pleasant sounds, your favorite song, or even a weather report.
If you are tired of your traditional alarm clock and have opted to use your mobile device instead, take a look at these cool options.
Flip Clock for iOS not only lets you wake up to your own music, but includes a variety of in-app sounds from soft to fun. The app provides the current weather for your location and an attractive background photograph to match the conditions.
You can set up a repeating alarm for specific days of the week, customize the snooze feature, and share your wake-up mood directly on Facebook or Twitter.
For Android users, Sleep as Android is a great option. Along with an alarm clock, the app offers lullabies for bedtime, helpful sleep tracking and statistics, nature sounds for gentle waking, and integration with wearables and smart home devices.
If you are looking for a full-featured app that does more than just wake you up, check out Sleep as Android.

Visualize Your Day
Some suggest that you visualize your day in a positive way before even getting out of bed. Prevention (magazine) online mentions this piece of advice from Dana Lightman, PhD, a behavioral psychologist:
Thinking positively about the day ahead energizes you.
Preparing for work in the morning is another great time to envision the day ahead of you. As you sit with your coffee, enjoy a hot shower, or put on your makeup, think about your day.
If you have already reviewed your schedule and prioritized your tasks, visualize how it will all take place. Put everything together in your mind and include a plan for your prime time as well as breaks and rewards, like lunch with a friend.
Along with imagining your day, use that power of visualization to be successful in your day. Picture yourself combating obstacles, finishing your tasks, and achieving your objectives. This can motivate you to accomplish all that you set out to do when the day ends.
Simply get in the habit of putting together a positive vision into your everyday life. Visualize yourself succeeding, achieving every goal, completing every task.
Take Advantage of Commute Time
If you take public transportation, ride in a car pool, or have a vehicle service to get to work, use that time wisely. Rather than just staring out the window, you can get a jump start on emails, review reports and documents, or schedule a meeting.
Another activity you can do on your commute is to enjoy a brief meditation or breathing session. These relaxation techniques can bring you the peacefulness and clear thoughts to begin your work day in a mindful way.
There is a wonderful tool for both Android and iOS called Calm. The app provides nature sounds with beautiful scenes for a complete relaxation experience. In addition, Calm has both guided and unguided sessions to suit your preference.
Tackling your priorities first may sound like an obvious productivity tip. But when a task is hefty, time-consuming, or is just a bit unpleasant, you may try to put it off. The problem is that you still have to do it and might just experience repercussions if it is delayed.
High-priority tasks have a sense of urgency or they would not be at the top of your list, right? So the best way to handle your to-dos is by taking care of urgent ones right off the bat and if you used the Eisenhower Matrix method mentioned above, these are easy to identify.
First, start every day by reviewing your plan and priorities. Start with the most important thing first.
Wrap Up Your Work
When you complete your day at work, it is the perfect time to do a review before you head home. Here are just a few things that you should do before calling it a day.
Look at Your To-Dos
First, take a look at your task list. Did you accomplish everything you had planned? If not, have you moved those unfinished items to tomorrow? Do you know what is on your list for the morning? The popular task list company Todoist offers this advice:
Simply writing out a plan to finish our uncompleted tasks provides the same mental relief as actually completing the task.
Check In With Your Team or Boss
Next, you should do a check-in with your team or boss, depending on your work situation. If you manage a group of employees, you can give them a nice thank you for their hard work. If you and your own supervisor have a brief talk at the end of the day, make sure you set aside a few minutes for it.
Peek at Your Calendar
Even though you will review your schedule for tomorrow before going to bed, it is also a good idea to do it before leaving the office. Just do a quick review of what you have scheduled for the next day. This allows you to grab a file, read a report, or bring your laptop home if needed.
You can also use this opportunity to schedule time on your calendar to accomplish any remaining items from today’s to-do list.
Finish Your Day With Pride (and Fun)
The way you end your day is just as important as the way you start it. So, now it’s time to be proud of a job well done. This is where you should pay attention to an evening routine. One of the better ways to invigorate is with the reward of an activity that you like.
Have dinner with a friend, take your dog for a long walk, watch your favorite television show, or play a fun game with your kids. Whatever it is that you like to do after a day at work, take that time to do it and enjoy yourself.
What Activity Prepares You for a Productive Day?
Do you prepare the night before and get your tasks in order for the morning? Maybe you have a wake-up method that motivates you? Or have you stumbled on a unique way to prioritize your tasks?
Whether you have suggestions or tools, we would love to hear your tips for a productive work day. So feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!
Data science has gone from a newly coined term in 2007 to being one of the most sought-after disciplines in the professional world. But what does a data scientist really do? And how can you break into the field? Here’s what you need to know if you’re looking to get the skills to become a data scientist.
What Do Data Scientists Do?
Data scientists combine statistics, computer science, and data analysis to bring order to the massive amounts of unruly data that are now collected by thousands of companies. It’s well-known that your Facebook account contains valuable information, and that Google wants to know absolutely everything about you. But now even local start-ups collect data that they hope can be mined and turned into useful strategies for growing their businesses.
The data that companies collect is often very messy — it’s incomplete, disorganized, incoherently labeled, and often just plain wrong. But there’s a lot of valuable information there, and data scientists are the ones who generate insights that can be put into action by the company’s business side of operations.
Many descriptions of data science emphasize the importance of discovery in the field; data scientists might not know what they’re looking for as they go through terabytes of data, but they’ll know when they see something interesting (this need for intuition and discovery is one of the reasons why this is a job that can’t be done well by robots). They also need to be good at presenting this information to others, as managers and executives aren’t usually well-versed in the language of data analysis as data scientists.
In short, data scientists analyze massive amounts of data and turn them into actionable strategies. Make no mistake: this is not an easy job. But it’s hugely valuable to companies, and always will be, which is why data scientists can expect to have secure jobs into the future. And they get paid well for these skills: a data scientist can easily make over $90,000 per year.
What Skills Do Data Scientists Need?
As “data science” is a quickly changing and often ill-defined field, the range of skills that you’ll find among data scientists is impressively wide. Most have some training in statistics, data analysis, and mathematics. Almost all have programming experience, especially in Python, R, Hadoop, SQL, and other languages that are used for data storage, statistics, and machine learning. Because it’s especially popular in data analysis, learning Python is a good place to start.
Knowing other data analysis programs as well, like MATLAB, SAS, and Minitab can also be quite useful.
The ability to communicate clearly with people who don’t understand machine learning, statistics, or data analysis is also very important. If you find something ground-breaking but can’t explain it to anyone, it’s not going to be of any use. Clear communication is a soft skill that is required of any technology worker these days.
Experiences in multiple fields is an asset if you are an aspiring data scientist — both within and outside the area that you’re working in. Being able to think creatively and address problems from multiple different angles is hugely useful when working in data science, as new problems often require innovation and ad-hoc solutions.
Learning the Skills for Data Science
Because data scientists need to be able to work with a variety of tools that come from different fields, as distinct as application development and probability theory, the path to joining the profession isn’t a clear one. Many data scientists start out as computer scientists or statisticians and gain the necessary skills while on the job. Others come from completely different backgrounds that give them the experience they need to solve problems in creative ways.
“Data scientists are involved with gathering data, massaging it into a tractable form, making it tell its story, and presenting that story to others.”
– Mike Loukides, VP, O’Reilly Media.
However, data-science-specific training is becoming more available by the day. Although the places for degree-level training are small in number and extremely competitive, they’re worth looking into. Having a headstart on the skills that you’ll develop in these programs will increase the chances that you’ll get into a program, and land a job, even without a degree in computer or data science.
The resources listed below will help you start racking up the skills that you need to be a data scientist. Some are free online college courses, and some are more professional-development-type resources. All of them are free, unless noted. At the end of the list, I’ve included some certification, immersive, and degree programs, in case you’re wondering where you can get some serious training in data science — there are more out there, but these should give you an idea of what’s available.
The list above should give you plenty to get started with. Once you’ve worked your way through the free resources, you can start looking at some field-specific things, like biostatistics, healthcare data analytics, or data analysis for security — there are a lot of resources that you can use without going back to school for a degree.
You can find courses on these topics in places like Coursera, Udacity, and even on YouTube. Going on to more advanced programming resources is also a good idea. There are tons of things out there for you to learn; you’ll just have to take some time to find the ones that are most applicable to you.
Here’s a short 1-minute inspiring video from Adobe on the life of a data scientist.
Do you want to be one? If you have any good resources to share for aspiring data scientists, please share them in the comments so that others interested in the field can take advantage of them!
