CouchSurfing.org – Great People, Great Reasons, Great Idea

CouchSurfing.org – Great People, Great Reasons, Great Idea

Scars heal, glory fades. And all we’re left with are the memories made! Pain hurts, but only for a minute. Your life is short so go on and live it… because the chicks dig it! Over the last year or two I’ve got right into country music – mainly because of a friend who forced me into it. But that’s beside the point, I chose the lyrics above because I think they apply to a lot of things in my life personally (minus the end haha); and also this post. So hopefully you guys will learn a little bit about me here too. p.s the first person to comment the singers name of the lyrics above will get 5 free SEO related tips on how to improve their website ;) So What’s All This CouchSurfing? The website says… “A volunteer-based worldwide network connecting travelers with members of local communities, who offer free accommodation and/or advice.” I think that’s a HUGE understatement. CouchSurfing.org is the social network of, and not subject to, travelers. People who want to explore, people who want to find themselves, who want to go on adventures, who want to hear cool stories from across the world, who want to do good by helping someone out, who want to meet new people and not just get in their pants – let’s be honest most social sites are based around sex if we look deeper… I signed up originally during my six week road trip through America. David and I were half dead, bodies were tired, livers failing and had been driving a long time. This particular night...
What’s The Correct Amount of Thinking Time?

What’s The Correct Amount of Thinking Time?

First of all, it’s crazy to think back and actually use something I learned in primary school and apply it to a real life situation. No offense primary schools. Either way the point of this post is to work out what the correct amount of thinking time is for any given situation in life. I mean, much like the equations in school thinking time is altered by the conditions around a driver – is it wet? Icy? Dry? Gravelly? How fast are you going? What restrictions do you have? What are the options? These relative conditions will be deciding factors in your ultimate decision; they also alter how long your thinking time is. The point applies to business, relationships, socials, buying, selling, any act you can think of – thinking time is part of it, as are the relative conditions which alter the end decision. Sometimes you will over think, sometimes you will under think and often enough you will wonder whether the right decision was made. So the point of this post is: to simply talk about, and work out, whether there is a correct amount of thinking time needed. Why Is Thinking Time Important? Well this one’s easy, right? By not thinking about something for the right amount of time, you may end up making a poor decision. Using Some Examples The classic. When driving a car your thinking time is reduced the faster you’re driving mixed with the distance between your car and the one (or object) in front of you. In this instance, thinking is not so much a choice, but a necessity. Nonetheless each...
Stop F*cking Around, It’s Time To Knuckle Down: Motivational Music

Stop F*cking Around, It’s Time To Knuckle Down: Motivational Music

A great guy I once knew said, “No more f*cking around, it’s time to knuckle down”. I tell a lie. It was me that said it, wait…that means I’m not lying, I am great. Ok sweet. Anyway, I posted this as a Facebook update. I then tagged several of my close friends that I knew would be able to help and simply said “Motivational songs people, go!”. The response was intense; I believe it’s my longest chain of responses to date; around 60 responses! I’d simply not had the best of days and was looking for some motivational music to really kick me into the mood of working – you see, I’ve had some tasks lingering over me for a while and had kept putting it off. It’s time to get going. True, Facebook did end up distracting me a bit, but man was I ready and rapidly soaring through my work once the playlist was created. So, without further ado… my top motivational songs playlist: Walking On Sunshine – Katrina & The Waves How can this not put you in a good mood? It’s the perfect start to a feel good motivational playlist. Really helps me to remember good times; like singing it out loud at the top of my lungs while coming towards the end of a gruelling 21 hour drive across two states, with just 3 hours sleep, after a night of drunken craziness. Yet I felt so alive. Can You Feel It – The Jacksons My love for Michael Jackson and all he and his brothers brought to my life will never die. And this...
