Evernote: Article Reading Life Hack

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Evernote Life Hacking Reading
There's a couple serious information consumption problems with reading blogs and online articles, no matter how informative, engaging or actionable the content is:

  • You will be working online and stumble upon an article that you know is going to be worth reading, but you don't want to stop working on your current task.
  • Distraction factors are huge; the temptation to check email or social media accounts.
  • A lot of times you will read half an article, get distracted by something and never return to finish the article.
  • If you want to reference information in that article later, you have to go back and find it.
  • If you're like me you have a million bookmarks in your web browser, if you bookmark yet another blog or article to read, all that does is ensure it's going to be lost in the avalanche of bookmarks.
  • If you're a hustler-geek like me a lot of times you like to read work or business related articles at the end of the day to let the knowledge marinate into your mind as you relax.
  • Reading on your computer screen is bad for your eyes, especially at night, which is when you are probably doing most of your reading if you follow proper information consumption practices.

The best 'pick up line' to begin an interesting conversation
Line: Pardon me. Do you mind if get your opinion on something...?
Follow this up with an engaging question, here's a few I like
• Can you recommend any unique cocktails here?
• Do you know this town well? Can you recommend a restaurant/bar, etc?
• Where did you buy that clothing item/accessory/cell phone?
• What do you think of this event?

Move your mouse to the other side of the computer

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

If you are right handed and have your mouse on the right side of your computer move it to the left and force yourself to use your non-dominant hand (or vice versa) for an hour a day. At first it will be very awkward and uncomfortable but practice for just one hour a day and you will greatly strengthen the bridge between the right and left sides of your brain.

Using audio-visual memory triggers

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

When you consume a piece of particularly valuable information use a memory trigger to make sure you that information is benefiting you at some point in the future.

 

Example:

Sometime within the next month you are going to be having a conversation with someone about blogging and you are going to use the phrase information equity(it’s going to make you seem really smart & progressive). Here’s the memory trigger you are going to use.

Memory Trigger: the word blog

Association Stream: every time you hear the word blog think blah > Then imagine a person’s mouth making an ‘O’ shape as they say blah-blah-blah > Now imagine a fraction sign inside their mouth (which is making a zero shape) >That zero represents the amount of information equity their blogging creates.

Reinforce the mental association: Mentally say the word blog, then mentally yell at yourself BLAH! BLAH! BLAH!(while visualizing the mouth). Do this 3 times (should take about 30 seconds)

Initially forming these memory triggers will feel a little odd and will take some mental energy and creativity but as you do them for often it will become natural and automatic.

How to Befriend & Get Hookups from the Owners of Swanky Restaurants and Bars

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Knowing the owner of a venue drastically increases your social proof. In my experience most venue owners are easy to meet and establish a friendly rapport with, here's a very easy way to do it.

  1. When you get good service at a bar or venue (You should be frequenting venues that provide excellent service) ask to see the owner. Try to do this during the slower times, like early happy hour on the weekdays.
  2. When the owner comes over let them know that you experienced great service and will be coming back. Then make sure you give the owner your business card.
  3. Tell the owner you will be writing them a good review on Yelp.com or Google local (this is golden to the ears of a venue owner). Then go home an actually do it or better yet do it on your smartphone and show to them right there.
  4. They will be tripping over themselves next time you arrive at their venue to give you great service & drinks on the house.

So now you 'know people' and have a hookup at a swanky joint there's a couple of things I'm going to recommend to maintain and maximize the benefits of this relationship.

  • Chances are very good this venue has a Facebook or Twitter page, go follow it so you can stay updated on events going on. If the owner seems friendly and you get their name shoot them a friend request on Facebook or follow them on Twitter. These types of business people usually live very public lives so you can usually learn a few interesting details (Where they are traveling, what they're interests are, etc) that if brought up later do a great job of deepening the relationship. Social media really is a big part of bar/restaurant marketing these days so don't underestimate the value to a venue owner of you spreading positive messages online about their spot.
  • Go early, the management and ownership of a venue notice and value the people that show up early at their venue more.
  • If the owner introduces you to anyone, for god sake, remember their name. There's plenty of easy mental tricks for remembering names that are easy to learn. This shows the owner you value the connections they make you and deserve to be on the top of the social food chain like them.
  • When they have a neat event going on volunteer to be involved marginally as a host or affiliate promoter. There's a temptation to announce that you want to throw your own event at their spot. I generally avoid this because being the primary coordinator is major brain damage. You're better off adding yourself, your group of friends and your marketing message to another event they are doing. I would generally turn down compensation for this if its offered (unless you want to make a business out of this sort of this which is an entirely different subject) in lieu of comp'd drinks (or bottle service!) for you and your friends.
  • Come through at least once and drop a little coin before you start asking for guest list hookups or drinks on the house. Let them offer these things first and they usually will.
  • For even more social proof introduce people to the owner, this makes them feel really special.
  • Don't get drunk and make and ass of yourself at their spot, or go with friends that will.

Listen to the Limitless Mindset Podcast while Working Out

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

One of the very most effective ways to increase your mind power is to hit the gym or do cardio exercises on a consistent basis. Listening to the Limitless Mindset podcast while working out is an excellent idea for several reasons.

 

  • If you listen to the podcast while working at the office, commuting or running errands that's better than not listening at all. However, while doing these tasks you are not going to be giving full attention to the content of the podcast.
  • While exercise should be physically stimulating, it usually is not very mentally stimulating. By listening to the Limitless Mindset podcast while working out you will be giving you brain a workout also.
  • The podcast is usually between 45-60 minutes so it's about the same length of time as you spend working out.

Use 'Sir' or 'Mame'

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

A simple way of giving yourself and edge in your career and business is to use the phrases 'Sir' or 'Mame'. These phrases are a simple, yet powerful way of showing respect to other people and demonstrate yourself as a high value person.

 

What's interesting is that when you use these phrases people will frequently refer back to you as either sir or mame, which communicates that they see you as a higher status individual.

It's also a good idea to refer to people from time to time as Mr. & Ms. with their last name. While it carries a little formality people have a great affinity for hearing their last name in this way.

Dress Very Sharp!

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

The reality is that we live in a world where people make a lot of judgments about you based upon the way you look, this is especially true in the socialite scene.

Gents – Wear a suit, yeah I know suits aren't terribly comfortable but a suit makes a loud, clear statement: I do things important enough in life that I wear a suit. Unless it's a really swanky function I do not recommend a tie though. I recommend leaving the top bottom on the suit undone, women find this look very sexy. I recommend buying your suits at Express for Men where they run around $300, I bought a suit about 4 years ago at there. I'm amazed at the amount of compliments I get on it after all the drinks that have been spilled on it and all the adventures it's been through over time.
Ladies – I'd recommend a cocktail dress, there is truly no better way to strike the delicate balance between sexy and classy than with a cocktail dress. If it's more a business setting a lady suit is fine. Also get yourself a small purse for when you are going out. Women who are out socializing with large purses are just clumsy looking.
