Steps to Breaking Your Procrastination Habit – thnxz to @PickTheBrain


http://www.pickthebrain.com/blog

1. Write down the dreaded task. Writing down the task you’ve been putting off brings the project to the front of your mind so it can’t easily be ignored.

2. Identify the underlying feelings. According to psychologists, procrastination is an emotional reaction. One of three core emotions is always driving it–fear, anger, or sadness. For example, you might be worried that you won’t get the job done well enough and on time (fear). You may feel resentful because you have to do something you hate (anger). Or you might feel inadequate or ill-suited for the task (sadness). Dig down deep to identify which emotion is causing you to drag your heels.

3. Move the emotion out of your body. Emotions are pure energy; they either flow through our body when we express them, or get stuck when we don’t. If they’re not expressed constructively and physically, they build up inside us like a pressure cooker. In a private setting, do exaggerated shivering to move out the fear; punch a pillow or stomp around to release anger; or watch a movie that makes you cry to express the sadness. It may sound silly, but it works.

4. Find an antidote to each negative thought. What negative thought pops into your head when you think of this task? You can neutralize such negative thinking by replacing each one with a “truth” that contradicts it. For example, if you think “I’ll never be able to learn all this,” you might say to yourself, “If others can learn this, so can I.”

Own it! Our Templates, Your Design Round #11


One of the main reasons we launched the beautiful Wedding Template was to enable couples who got  engaged a chance to share the happy news in a creative and exciting way (the other reason is that Wix is a sucker for weddings). Soon we discovered that this template’s unique style attracted not only young couples, but also business owners, designers, photographers, and many other Wix users that were looking to make a beautiful HTML5 website.

One of the special things about this template is the dominance of colors, so even a slight adaptation like changing the background color can quickly give this template an entirely different look and feel. The websites on this showcase show this attribute really well. They were all created with the Wedding Template, yet they all have an individual atmosphere to them. It’s like magic!

MoviePass debuts an unlimited movie service that may just save cinemas


The notion of creating a “Netflix for theaters” is a tough one — not only do you have to get movie studios on board with your plans, you also have to form partnerships with national theater chains. And let’s face it, neither group is quick to climb aboard a service that disrupts the current ticketing model.

MoviePass debuts an unlimited movie service that may just save cinemas

But MoviePass, a company that’s been trying to crack this nut for some time, may have found the answer. Today MoviePass is debuting a new subscription movie theater service that relies on mobile app check-ins and a proprietary payment card. And best of all, the company has managed to do this without any formal agreements with movie theaters and studios. Leer más “MoviePass debuts an unlimited movie service that may just save cinemas”

Courtship, Communication and Business Relationships

This week, reminders of Valentine’s Day and the relationship expectations it brings were unavoidable. Depending on who you are, this time of year can be filled with promise or fraught with despair. Either is a good excuse for chocolate – heart-shaped or otherwise.

Not so coincidentally, there was a flurry of messages pushing and promising a love connection at your fingertips, someone waiting just for you in the world of online dating. With fairly identical business models, matchmaking sites have leveraged our human need for personal connection into a $700 million industry that now boasts a whopping 20 percent share of successful online meetings leading to long-term in-person relationships. Of those, 24 percent are said to lead to marriage.

No doubt about it, technology has changed the way we meet people, form relationships, share information, and in general, conduct our personal lives from the privacy of an online connection.

Likewise, technology has changed the way we form business relationships. We are no longer constrained by proximity. Our reach is infinite. We can engage anyone, anywhere without leaving the office. And unlike online dating, the goal need never include meeting our business matches in order to take the relationship to the next level. Trust, communication and friendship are all virtually attainable and sustainable.

Name: Hitch.me

Quick Pitch: Hitch.me is a dating site for LinkedIn professionals.

Genius Idea: Connects the dating world and the professional world for a secure, safe online dating platform.


After noticing how unsafe some online dating sites are and how many are filled with scammers and sex offenders, Naveed Nadir wanted to fill a void in the online dating world. He decided to marry the dating world and professional world by creating Hitch.me, the first and only dating platform for LinkedIn professionals.

“There are a lot of dating websites out there but most people on those sites lie and have fake profiles,” Naveed Nadir, founder of Hitch.me, told Mashable. “With LinkedIn, people get a sense of security and they feel more comfortable with the network.”

The online dating site lets users browse through profiles of hundreds of LinkedIn professionals all over the world, send them private smiles (without words), pitches (250 characters) and even presentations (private images and videos).

Once you sign into Hitch.me using your LinkedIn account, your professional information, including your LinkedIn photo, is automatically added to your profile. To keep the site professional, users cannot change or modify their profile photo.

Users can then fill out their own personal profile, which includes information such as age, date of birth, interests, photos, etc. Hitch.me’s privacy options lets users limit the visibility of their personal profiles to only selected individuals.

To save you the hassle of searching for compatible users, Hitch.me shows you all of your matches with their professional and personal profiles on your own dashboard.

Although Hitch.me does not charge a monthly fee, credits are required to view personal profiles and send messages. Users receive 200 free credits upon signing up and 100 credits per each person that signs up by clicking on a shared link that users can post to their social networks.

Thereafter, credits cost $10 for 300, $25 for 1,000 and $50 for 2,500. Once you pay via credit card, a receipt is sent to your email and you obtain full access to browse professional and personal profiles and send messages.

Twenty credits are required to unlock a profile or send a smile, 50 to send a pitch and 100 to send a presentation.

”The intent is to keep Hitch.me professional and to make it as private and secure as possible,” says Nadir.

Hitch.me is self-funded and has officially launched Thursday.
