Time Management Tools (part 2 of 2)

The Organizer + Watch Tandem

These are staples for just about every busybody – from the college beadle to the corporate leader. The organizer is something that holds your appointments and it’s also a tiny little space for some writing. Busybodies usually have contact numbers of random people they meet, gifts for a not-so-relevant birthday party that he has to go to or some sudden brilliant ideas that come to mind. For these and more, you will need an organizer. It has to be a little notebook, just enough to fit in a handbag, and should be made of durable material. You must bring your organizer with you every day, in case you need to list something down as a reminder.

Moreover, the perfect complement to an organizer is a high-quality watch. You may have experienced running late for an appointment just because your watch didn’t work well.  What’s worse is that the person you’re meeting wouldn’t even believe you. This blunder can easily be avoided. Just get a high quality watch. Having a good sense of time is practically the first step in time management.

The Perfect Mindset

It’s pressuring to know that you have a lot of things in your hand and it seems like you can‘t even do anything about it. Don’t tip over.

Moreover, keep a “be on your toes” kind of mindset as you maneuver your way into your busy life. Sure, there are times when you distance yourself from your organizer. For some, it is a painful reminder of the busy life they lead. It’s perfectly alright to feel some form of eternal urgency but take some time off once in a while. You must never neglect yourself in your list of priorities.

While technology is at its most advanced state today, there remains to be a lot of things to juggle for a typical career-oriented individual. For most family-oriented people, there is the burden of juggling work, career, family and other factors involved in one’s social life.

The answer is Time Management. Most successful people are often asked about what their secret to success is. And more often than not, they have the same response, and that is “time management”. However, although this is almost an expected response, many are still baffled at how time management really works.

Time management is simply the proper allocation of time for certain priorities. First, the priorities have to be arranged in a certain way where it is clustered into sectors and listed according to urgency and importance. For example, the important parts of your life are career, your son, your home, your art, and your family. You have to know which one to drop first whenever you need to do something.

After that, you will need help from some time management tools designed to aid you in the correct process of prioritization AND remembering that order.

Quick-and-Easy Reminders

There are a lot of people who need lots of reminder when it comes to taking care of small businesses. Often, they are too small that they are disregarded as unimportant. If you are one of them, buy some quick-and-easy reminders. What’s good about technology is you can probably put a reminder just about everywhere! Cellular phones nowadays have built-in organizers, post-its are available in different variants, and even the good old refrigerator door magnets have come in a lot of forms.

What is important is that the frequency of the reminding is now being increased. This is good for time management because it keeps you aware of the things which you have to do especially if they’re urgent.

Construction Job - Is it Safe at the Site? (part 2 of 2)

The employers must provide a comprehensive training to their staff to further eliminate these problems. A regular check up and maintenance of the machinery has to be done to ensure that nothing is defective and may provoke freak accidents. It is also very important to put up signs like "Bio-hazard" and the likes that will serve as warnings to the workers. Only by creating a strict sense of awareness that multiple injuries and casualties can be prevented.
The Construction Workers in Action
As it goes, these accidents often take place due to the workers' and employers' carelessness and negligence. The construction site is never going to be a safe place but then again there are several ways on how the ordeals can be prevented. The workers should be alert at all times. They must be aware that they are entering a danger zone so they need to wear the protective gears. They have to carefully look at where they are heading to. Their senses should be alert at all times and they should make use of their foresight.
The sad thing to note is that the construction jobs are not so rewarding. In fact, workers receive such a meager income. How much more if they get into accidents? The insurance policies also provide a small amount of money that is not even enough to compensate the victim's family. Above all, it matters that every individual must take every ounce of precaution.

Construction Job - Is it Safe at the Site? (part 1 of 2)
A construction job is regarded as a very dangerous place on Earth. After all, the environment in the construction sites provides all sorts of hazards for the workers. Accidents happen at least on a daily basis. In the past years, there have been numerous workers who have contained both the mild and serious injuries, some have gone invalid, and several others have lost their lives. This only shows that there is a need to employ the best types of precautionary measures to further avoid these very unwelcome incidents.

The Causes of the Freak and Fatal Mishaps
The construction sites are often filled with metals, lumbers, machinery, electric wires, motor vehicles, and the likes. The workers commonly get exposed to the dangers that these materials may bring. There are different causes of the accidents and among them are the falling of the roofs and lights, slipping and falling off the ladders and from other levels, scaffolds, electrocution, electric fires, structural collapses, getting struck by motor vehicles, machines, and excavators, getting in contact with chemicals, cement, live wires, dust, and other hazardous gases, among others. The main reasons for these mishaps are of course due to the lack of training and negligence of both the workers and the employees.
The Role of the Government
Some concerned organizations and the local government are working hard to somehow eliminate these untoward events. They do advocate that the important precautionary measures should be applied to keep everyone safe at the construction site. There should be stronger roofs and structures to avoid the slipping and falling of people. The electric wiring must be properly done. The machines and motor vehicles should be operated by the skilled and trained individuals. The design of the site must be made accordingly to allow the ease in transporting the materials and to avoid the jamming of the traffic.

The Spiritual Awareness Through Shamanic Reiki (part 2 of 2)

Once the area has been determine, shamanic reiki practitioners combine traditional concepts of chakra healing techniques, the use of stones and crystals, as well as the use of medicinal herbs, all of which draws foundations from ancient shamanic healing. Combining these shamanic elements to channeling energy techniques from reiki, and the results can be quite effective.

Among the most popular techniques used in shamanic reiki is the use of crystal during the heal process. More specifically, practitioners of this reiki technique use quarts, rose quarts, and amethyst as a means to channel the life force energy from the hands of the healer to the person being healed. The shamanic reiki energy, together with the crystals helps increase the flow of spiritual energy regaining the balance that was lost. Mental, physical, emotional and spiritual imbalances will be regained after sessions of shamanic reiki procedures.

To increase efficiency, there are combinations of crystals that seem to work well doubling the healing process. Shamanic principles are at play when choosing combinations of crystals, mostly pairing them with the colors that corresponds to the chakras of the human body. For example, tailbone chakra would require black, red, or brown stones and the heart chakra would need to be paired with pink or green stones. The crown requires a white stone or crystal while the throat area requires blue stones.

Also, shamanic reiki incorporates other shamanic healing elements like shape shifting techniques, the use of symbols, the use of spiritual guides and even the shamanic time journeying or astral travel. Shamanic reiki can be complicated but the idea is rather simple.

The use shamanic traditions and techniques to channel the life force energy in all of us to induce healing. Everything boils down to this.

Combining the concepts behind shamanism and reiki into a single healing session increases the benefits of the beliefs and practices of both. Shamanic reiki draws its foundations from concepts of shamanic journeying and channeling the living energy to create healing techniques that are powerful and effective in alleviating anxiety, depression, stress, fatigue, and even illnesses.

This reiki technique fully encompasses treatments on the spiritual and energetic levels, allowing the practitioner to discover new ways of healing.

Shamanism is a very old system of beliefs whose roots can be found in pagan traditions and practices that uses the products of the Earth to heal. You’ll find different kinds of shamanism but all practices healing techniques that incorporate the use of herbs and communicating with spirits.

Other similarities of the different forms of shamanism include the belief that shamans are able to control or cooperate with spirits for the benefit of others that existing spirits can be good and bad, and that shamans are capable of treating sicknesses and illnesses. In other words, shamans are often seen as not only priests that communicate with the living world and the world of spirits but as healers, magicians, and teachers as well.

When integrated to the Japanese Reiki, shamanism becomes more encompassing and a lot interesting. With shamanic reiki, the spiritual energy is used to see where exactly in the body do we need to concentrate healing techniques. In shamanism, the healing process revolves around the seven chakras in the human body. Determining which of the seven chakra or life forces is blocked will determine which area to concentrate healing techniques.

How to Use Forums to Promote Your Blog (part 2 of 2)

If you are interested in posting in forums and getting your voice heard, and if you want to get your blog noticed in the Internet universe, then you may be interested in the following tips. Take note, however, that these are only a few tips to guide you on your way to blog superstardom, and you need to learn on your own along the way and pick up your own lessons, too.

- Post in a forum that you are actually interested in. Believe it or not, the degree of your understanding of and interest in a topic in a forum will shine through your post. If people see that you are interested in the forum topic, then you may get more attention than people just reading your forum post.

- Post in a forum whose topic is related to your blogging topic. This can be critical when you are dealing with die-hard fans of a certain artist or film, because posting off-topic posts in a forum concentrated with users who have a single interest and aim can be distracting, not to mention grounds for kicking you out of the forum.

- Be dignified enough to spell right. Text shortcuts can make texts almost unreadable, and you can annoy a whole lot more people. If you make the effort to write in your blog, make an effort to write well on the forums, or you may find it harder to invite people to read your blog. Why should they read your blog when they can’t even understand what you are posting on the forum?

- Extend help to other forum members when they need it. Remember, people do not care about what you have to say until they find out that you care about them first.
