C’mon over to http://marieforleo.com/2012/05/how-to-write-fast where the main discussion happens after the episode!

Knowing how to write fast is not something women entrepreneurs inherently know how to do, and producing high quality content, writing an article or producing blog content can seem to take FOREVER.

In this video I’ll share 8 secrets for how you can learn to write faster and still create the high quality content that will keep your customers coming back for more.

1. Take a look at your internal dialog before you do anything and really look at the story you are telling yourself about the things you want to change.
2. The two questions you need to ask yourself before writing so that you can reverse engineer your content and get your readers the results they are looking for.
3. How you can organize all of your ideas in one place so you can write faster.
4. The importance of keeping things short and sweet.
5. Why you need to stop everything and create an editorial calendar before writing another word.
6. Why trying to complete the entire writing process at one time won’t help you write faster.
7. Work expands to the time allotted…if you want to write faster you need to set a time limit.
8. Be the vessel, not the source. Allow quality content to come through you and take the pressure off yourself by realizing you’re not doing this alone.

This topic has been all the rage for over a decade now. I think I understand why. Most households are dual income, lots of “latch key” kids, workers and professionals in the US always seem to be among the highest in the world in terms of hours worked per week, etc. Too much work, lots of family issues to contend with, a desire to have what is now an underdeveloped social life. I get it. But is work-life imbalance really driven by the large number of hours we work? Not really. A lack of balance is not simply about too many hours. It is really about the stress associated with those hours. Good news, stress associated with work-life imbalance can be addressed. The effect of the number of hours on you is primarily determined by:

1. Your fit with your current role and or boss and or vocation. I hope most of you who are reading this are in the front third of your careers! You can “fit,” well or poorly, with your current role, boss or vocation. In the ideal situation you are a department head (role) for Suzy (your boss) over a group of staff accountants (accounting is the vocation) and you love everything about it. Unfortunately, some of you do not want to be the department head (or you feel you are stuck there and are unable to move higher), you do not like your boss and you can’t even recall how you convinced yourself accounting was the field for you. My point here is that if you will think about how much of the stress you have is due to poor fit (as opposed to lack of “balance”) you can begin the journey of exploring ways to find better fit.

2. Your willingness and ability to grow. Assuming you have decent fit, you very likely face many other challenging work-related issues. The amount of work, difficult relationships, uncertainty about many outcomes ahead of you, etc. Welcome to the club. How well you practice personal professional improvement 101 says a lot about how much you’ll stress out. This refers to systems of time management, self motivation and goal setting, seeking and using mentors and feedback, finding innumerable forms of training and learning, finding adequate time away from the office, and so on.

Yes, each of these two topics is huge! Having said that – they are your targets. Start thinking, reading and planning to find better fit. Guess what? When you have decent fit, the personal improvement part becomes really easy. You no longer strive for work-life balance when you love your work. Good luck!

There are many reasons to become a vegan or a vegetarian. One of the popular reasons is because it’s better for the environment… but is it really? Our resident vegetarian Anthony Carboni did some digging to find the answer.

The concept of life has come across a colossal shift with the emergence of HIV testing in the arena of medicine. It has truly been a big challenge for the medical specialists to find a means to counter this disease. It has till date proved to the disease that has spelled death for any individual who has been affected by it. The treatment for this terminal disease has not yet been discovered. Therefore the only way to stop this death agent is to be careful enough and try and prevent the infection from spreading. The HIV testing acts like a marker that signals the imminent danger in case it has already arrived. The HIV testing does not give the individual the assurance of a fresh lease of life however it does warn the individual regarding the stage of the disease in which it has been detected.

The HIV testing is required to detect whether an individual is HIV positive or not. The different ways by which the HIV virus gets transmitted are as follows:

The first way that an individual may be exposed to the virus is through that of unsafe physical communion.

The second way an individual may be exposed to the virus is that of an infected syringe. This is in fact one of the primary reasons why the syringe once used is immediately disposed off.

The third way could be the transmission from the infected mother to the baby in the womb.

The fourth way could be that of the transfusion of infected blood. It is one of the precise reasons why any blood that has been donated for the purpose of transfusion is checked well to ensure that no such virus is existent in the sample.

The HIV testing is therefore done not only for detection but also for precautionary measures.

The various reasons as to why an individual should opt for HIV testing are as below:

An early detection of the disease enhances the life expectancy of the individual. The modern medications help to delay the imminent end as much as is possible in case of a timely detection.

Since the HIV virus targets the immune system of an individual, therefore an early detection can in the least slow down the pace of the virus if not eliminate the disease completely.

Moreover if an individual is aware of the infection then he or she can at least take the adequate measures to prevent the spread of the disease.

Moreover an early detection can with the aid of required medicine, prevent the disease from being transmitted from the mother to the unborn baby.

Therefore the HIV testing can actually stop the transmission in certain cases if the detection occurs at the right time.

The different ways of HIV testing are namely the enzyme linked immunoassay or the ELISA and the Western Blot test. Once both the HIV testing results turn out to be positive it can be said without a shadow of doubt that the individual has been affected by the virus.

The HIV testing can sometime show a negative result even if the individual has been affected by the virus. The reason of it being so is that the detection depends on the HIV antibody produced by the body. It is therefore advised that one conduct the HIV testing at regular intervals and not become complacent with just one report.

Online article authors are always complaining that they can’t produce additional articles because they’ve run out of things to write about. Well, if this happens to you, then why don’t you just read more? Why not read trade journals in ancillary industry sectors to the one that you write about? Why not read a book on the subject?

When was the last time you read a book from your own industry?

How can you be an expert and write articles on the Internet if you haven’t read any books about the subject? And just because you read one book a year on the subject doesn’t mean you know what you’re talking about.

Why not read one book a week on your subject matter? I do.

In fact, I find it rather upsetting and demoralizing that too many other online article writers and especially online article marketers read so little and write so much about things they don’t know what they’re talking about.

If you do this, then you are doing a disservice to the Internet reader, you are cluttering up the Internet with garbage articles, and you are giving either bad advice or useless information that is already available on the World Wide Web, and has always been there, even if you had never existed in the first place. In other words you are needed.

There are more good reasons to read in your industry, because it will make you think about topics that you haven’t considered yet and the more you read different sides of the debates, the better you will see the issues and therefore, the more knowledgeable you will attain because you will be thinking about this.

This will make you a better expert in your industry. If you’re going to turn off your mind and not read, and not stay up with the industry then you really have no business writing articles online and wasting everyone’s time including your own. Please consider all this.

In an archipelago southwest of Japan, lies the island of Okinawa, which is home to the healthiest population of centenarians (people over 100 years old) on earth. They suffer fewer instances of cancer, diabetes and heart attacks. Their secrets include a more nutrient based diet and less stressful living.

Okinawan centenarians stay lean by eating fewer calories than they burn off during the day. They maintain a healthy weight. For them, meals are a social event where the focus is on the social interaction and not the food itself. They eat until they are almost full before they get stuffed.

It takes 20 minutes for the body to signal to the brain that is it full. Americans like to eat until they are stuffed. You can use a hunger rating system to monitor your level of satisfaction. During a meal, rate your hunger on a scale of 1 to 5- (1 is famished and 5 is stuffed.) By just taking the time to think about how you actually feel, you are less likely to overeat.

Learning how to shoot better basketball is a combination of many different things. The purpose of this article is to help one learn a few of the major factors that help improve your shot.

Your shot is has a lot to do with confidence. Even some of the best shooters in game have bad days, but what separates them from the rest? Confidence. You have to have the confidence to not remember your last shot. The only shot that matters is your next shot. One of the best ways to build confidence is to envision the ball going into the hoop. In addition always try not to hesitate. If you have an open shot shoot it.

The mechanics of your shot are also important as well you must have proper form to improve your shooting percentage. You want to keep your elbows in but not too far in, and you want to always have the ball in the triple threat position before shooting or when receiving a pass. This means being able to take off and dribble, pass the ball, or being able to shoot the ball as well. In addition you want to always follow through when you snap your wrist. Your follow through can be one of your biggest factors in jump shooting, the set shot or the three pointer.

Although your form is important your leg strength is of equal importance as well. Your jump shot does not begin with your form or your follow through. It begins with your legs. When you take a jumper the power from your legs should transfer up and be the main source of power for your shot. If you try to use your arms to much, especially in longer shots like the three pointer. You will most likely end up pushing your shot to one side of the rim or the other. Remember Practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect.

6 Tips for a Better Work-Life Balance

The demands on your time seem to never ease up. Were all struggling to make time for ourselves, maintain friendships, and keep the spark in our love lives.

How can you determine what you need to be happier and more productive? Start with these 6 tips to achieve better balance in your life:

Tip One: Search out a flexible employer.

Job flexibility is the number one desired corporate benefit. If your company gives new meaning to the word rigid, you may need to look elsewhere – flexible employers do exist!

Pay attention to articles profiling companies that are particularly family-friendly or rated as the best place to work. These companies are a great place to start your job search.

Tip Two: Ask and you shall receive (maybe).

If you want a more flexible work arrangement, whether its flex time, job sharing, or a shorter workweek, try asking for it – but make sure youve done your homework.

For example, if youre a really productive person, highlight this strength to your manager. Show her youre worthy of this special consideration. Be prepared to give your boss the details of the new arrangement so he knows youve thought it through.

Tip Three: Form a work-life balance committee.

Form a group to survey coworkers to determine their needs. Gently inform your leaders that creating a flexible environment will be a benefit to the company because their employees will be happier, more creative, and loyal.

Tip Four: Schedule me time.

If its important to you to do a thirty-minute workout three times a week, mark it with permanent marker on your calendar.

Therell always be some more important work projects that compete for your time, but you need to realize that your personal commitments are just as valuable.

Tip Five: Realize a temporary lack of balance is acceptable.

Sometimes, you may feel your life is out of balance. Sometimes its worth it, like when you go back to school or take the time to care for a child or parent.

If the benefit is bigger than the drawback, then accept it because you have a new important, temporary priority. In time, you can shift back to a better balance with a new sense of accomplishment.

Tip Six: Recognize the signs of burnout.

When life remains out of balance for an extended period of time, you can suffer from burnout. Are you as tired when you wake up as you were when you went to bed? Do the little pleasures of life fail to satisfy you? Is your productivity waning?

Refresh yourself! It could be something as simple as taking a weekend vacation or as major as changing careers. The first step is recognizing it, so you can put your life back in balance.

Reap the rewards of a balanced life today!

Determine what your personal and professional needs are and decide if your workplace is meeting them. If its not a match, then review the six tips and make the necessary changes. When all the puzzle pieces of life fit together, you will be a better friend, parent, employee and person.
