Uncategorized – Ghd Hairstraightener http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net The pleasure of one's effect on other people still exists in age -- what's called making a hit. But the hit is much rarer and made of different stuff.

I took a lot of photos, even made a short video. Yet, when I saw people with a video camera on, and filming pretty much everything, I felt disappointed.

  • Was it uncomfortable? You bet; the first three months in Bucharest, alone, for the first time in my life very responsible of things, were hell;
  • Was it life-changing? At first no; on the long-term, it was one of the most life-changing experiences in my life.
  • Solution from above: force change; you may not like it, you may not get the desired results at the beginning; keep doing it and you will change (most likely, for the better

    Why say YES to pretty much everything? http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net/why-say-yes-to-pretty-much-everything/ Thu, 29 Jun 2017 13:22:40 +0000 http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net/?p=34 One of my life’s philosophies is simple: saying “Yes!” to pretty much everything (except for the case in which personal values are affected, and this doesn’t happen often).

    Why cars are a no-no in most of the cases? http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net/why-cars-are-a-no-no-in-most-of-the-cases/ Thu, 29 Jun 2017 13:19:04 +0000 http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net/?p=28 I’ve won a car at a lottery; sold it; I don’t own a car; my father owned two different cars; a lot of people I know own cars; I’ve been a passenger in a lot of cars; so, why this “No-no” attitude versus cars?

    Being late versus phone ringing http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net/being-late-versus-phone-ringing/ Thu, 29 Jun 2017 13:18:04 +0000 http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net/?p=25 At conferences and at places with lots of people, I tend to want to optimize the time and be late. On the other hand, I almost never disturb a meeting with my phone ringing.

    Yet people would look at the above behavior and say – it’s OK to be late and not OK to have a phone ringing. But, I thought today, what does a phone ring do? Disturb the attention for a few seconds, and then stop. What does being late imply? Waiting for others.

    A 5 minute delay is much more disturbing than a phone ring, yet people put emphasis on the phone ring, instead of the delay.

    Yes, a phone ring is almost entirely on one’s control, while a delay can be caused by external factors.

    Still, the emphasis is, in my opinion, wrongly put.

    Call-to-actions – how to create them? http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net/call-to-actions-how-to-create-them/ Thu, 29 Jun 2017 13:04:21 +0000 http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net/?p=20 In my opinion, a page on any web site should “sell” you something. A blog should sell its content and ads, an online store should sell the products / newsletter / contact information page, a presentation web site should generate leads. These are important selling points. On a smaller level, a web site has secondary purposes, like branding, providing more information, providing a good user experience, offering the best possible content to the user. Anyhow, a web page should have a purpose, and this can generally be attained better if using call-to-actions. How to create them?

    Revelation on eclecticism http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net/revelation-on-eclecticism/ Thu, 29 Jun 2017 13:03:11 +0000 http://www.ghd-hairstraightener.net/?p=17

    Eclectic = selecting or employing individual elements from a variety of sources, systems, or styles

    Yet, apparently a lot of people don’t embrace eclecticism, based on the logic – “If you want to be a better you, you need to only focus on a specific thing and develop this”; I found out this evening that not only people don’t appreciate eclecticism, but there is quite an adversity towards it – “Why do you force me to learn something from a different perspective? Does this involve my work? No? Then go away
