Cure for lazyness

I have to admit, *alot* of times, I get lazy with my life. And suddenly I feel stuck around the corner.

While researching, I found this helpful passage to help you realize what you must do.

  • if you dont make things happen, things will happen to you.
  • stop talking, thinking or writing about your problem, start doing something.
  • start acting.
  • dont get anxiety, discomfort, or fear to prevent you from starting.
  • most people are held back or are stuck in their tracks because they believe everything should feel good.
  • once you accept life is, you can go ahead and do whatever needs to be done, despite how it makes you feel.
  • we dont have to be ruled by our feelings; we can choose to let our reason guide us.
  • we have to stop living on auto-pilot and get into the habit of thinking before acting.
  • stop being shortsighted; realize that the pleasure now (watching tv, partying all night) yields to the pain of regret, shame and lack of advancement.  the pain you choose to push through (working on a report late night) leads to pleasure and pride of accomplishment.

Word of encouragement:

Don’t make excuses.  In fact we already have the tools to succeed. Those tools are: “A heart to resolve, a head to contrive, and a hand to execute.” (Edward Gibbon, 1737 ~ 1794)

Creating an iPhone Ringtone

iPhone ringtone costs more than the real song version of it.  Man, that sucks!  Here’s how to create one from your favorite MP3.

  1. Open iTunes
  2. Find the song you want to convert.
  3. Find the part you want to use as ringtone.  Ringtone has a limit of 40 seconds.  You can start from chorus or beats if you want.  Note the start and end time.
  4. Right click the song, and click on the Get Info
  5. Select the Options tab and check the Start and End time
  6. Type in the start and end time.  Must be less than or equal to 40 seconds.
  7. Click OK
  8. Right click the song and click on Create AAC Version.
  9. iTunes will create another song (your ringtone) that has 40 seconds playable time.
  10. Right click that song, and click on the Get Info
  11. Right click on the path of the file, and click on Show in Windows Explorer if you are using Windows.
    • If you are using Mac, open the file folder until you find that song.  Use the path as your guide.
  12. Rename that song from *.m4a to *.m4r file extension.
  13. Double click on the renamed file sound to import it to iTunes as a ringtone.

Cheers!

Getting things done

Havent updated in a while. Too much busy with work and stuffs. And too much busy organizing myself.  Here’s something that I rely on. Getting things done by David Allen might also help you deal with how to organize, set goals, and execute them lighting fast.

If you have an iPhone, you can use the OmniFocus, or the Things.  My favorite would be the Pocket Informant as it is an integration between Calendar (Events / Appointments) and Tasks (Getting things done / Franklin Covey).

For Palm based and Pocket PC based, I used Agendus before. (My first PDA was Palm based, Sony CLIE and Palm TX, and Pocket PC was HTC TyTN II – however I lost them all over the years)
