I really need to be lazy more often. I was filling out an application - and once I uploaded my resume, it appeared I needed to re-type the resume in more detail with starting/stop dates, salaries, etc. and three job references. So of course I bagged it Then today someone contacted me since they were still able to see my resume even though I hadn't completed and submitted anything else - and they attached a simple checklist for me to complete and bypass the rest if I was still interested! Kids: Laziness pays off!
On a semi-related note, I have just finished reading The 4 Hour Work Week. It was recommended by a childhood friend. Although some of the concepts would be difficult to implement - or, should I say -not difficult, more "impractical" - such as getting a vitural assistant in the Middle East, many of the tips can be adapted and I did take away some ideas worth exploring further.
Of course, if I was to try doing this and live off my blog I would be dead of starvation in three days ;-)
One thing that I feel the the need to get to the bottom of - is a letter that was written by someone who practiced the 4 Hour technique and was splitting time between NYC and Colombia. When I went to check out his website, it appeared he died a tragic death shortly after the book was published but no details are available anywhere. May be a cautionary tale, or something totally unrelated but the fact that there is no information available is very circumspect!
Oh, I have also finally been selected by a blog review company to do a review- problem is that the review is in someone else's words and not related to my blog :/ I would feel like a total sellout to publish it, but I won't rule it out just yet hee hee. After all, how am I going to get to a 4 Hour Work Week if I continue to pass things up????
