fallacy of time management

Logical Fallacy of Time Management

Instead of asking: What will I do when?
We should rather think about:

Why shall I do what?

fallacy of time managementManaging our urgent tasks is the Logical Fallacy of Time Management. We should manage our tasks depending on how essential they are. To be able to do so, we need to know what we want to achieve in our life.

This is much easier, if we have written down our dreams and targets. To find the next required step, it is good to reread your dreams and targets, in order to stay focused. Then think about the next little task, that you are going to initiate today.

Can you feel, how your focus shifts from urgent to essential?

Inborn Logical Fallacy of Time Management

The damn thing is: We are genetically programmed to focus on the urgent stuff. If a dinosaur did hunt your grand-grand-…-parents, they did run! And they did not think about, what would be the next essential step to becoming spiritually enlightened! Nor they sat down and smoked a cigarette to think, what would be the best in this situation?

This instinct to take care for the urgentcy in this situation, saved their life. And by acting like this, they were able to protect our species. So we should be grateful for this instinct, because we are alive due to it!

How to overcome the Logical Fallacy of Time Management

Nowadays dinosaurs are not around anymore. So other things came into our lives, that we consider as urgent, e.g.:

  • the taxman,
  • our boss,
  • being on time for a date,
  • deadlines,
  • and schedules.

Which is good, if you have thought about the priorities first! And if you shedule the most of your time for tasks, that serve your dreams and targets! By doing so, you made your essential tasks urgent. So your basic instinct of focusing on the urgent stuff serves your essentials!

So, go and review your dreams and targets to overcome the Logical Fallacy of Time Management. Then choose the next little step and schedule it for the next week … just to make it urgent!

… because this also makes you happier!

Satisfying All Human Needs

Why am I running marathons?

Because it is satisfying all human needs.

You arrive at the finish line as a different person than the one who started. Getting runners high during the race is like a meditation, which even supports mental growth. The training is turning the body into a fat burning machine which gives me physical growth.

The challenge of each run is an adventure: Am I able to finish? Which gives me a challenge and some uncertainty.

To do something most people never do is very attractive to me because it fulfills the need to be outstanding and significant.

If I can run for several hours, I also can make love for a loooonnng time. Yes, I experienced that it even makes me a better lover: I can contribute better to my partner’s satisfaction.

The endurance I got from the training helps me in reaching out for higher targets, which gives me the certainty of being able to reach anything I want.

I enjoy the rhythm of the steps and it is a wonderful pace to experience nature or urban regions. The additional oxygen clears my mind and lets me think better. It makes my body stronger and more attractive and I do love myself, everybody else, the world and the universe better for experiencing that.

Writing this, I just realized, that it fulfills all six human needs. Actually, anything that fulfills more than three human needs is addictive. Probably the real reason to do it, again and again, is:

I am addicted to running!

 

How Vitality4Happiness satisfies your six human needs (according to Tony Robbins):

how to build confidence

How to Build Confidence – Success Journal

I had a conversation about how to build confidence with a wonderful lady. She told me:

– I lost my confidence.

Klaus Forster: #1 Do you write daily your success journal?

😔 no

Klaus Forster: Do you know how to do it?

– I think I know, but I would be happy if you could give me a guidance.

Klaus Forster:

#2 Put a daily reminder in your calendar, that reminds you, about 1 hour before you usually get to sleep.

#3 If you really want me to help you, send me every day a copy of your success journal.

#4 Read your past successes in your success journal from time to time, especially when you are low on energy.

How to build confidence? 

Write daily in your success journal

Whenever you feel low on energy or unmotivated, it is either due to a lack of confidence or you don’t have clear targets. In the worst case, both at the same time!

Why is this connected with each other?

High motivation just means you got a lot of energy. That means the simple equation looks like this:

Motivation = Energy

This part of the equation is pretty obvious, and everyone can confirm that from his own experience.

But what has it to do with how to build confidence and your clear targets?

Motivation =  Targets * Confidence

This most likely needs some more explanation. But think about a situation where you had a big dream e. g. owning an own villa with a wonderful garden, a garage full of fancy cars and employees that are serving you. But you were not confident enough to believe that you can reach it. Have you been able to get started? No, your motivation and energy were almost zero. Because

Zero Confidence * Targets = Zero Energy = Zero Motivation

Your energy level after working for a while in a new job:

The other day, you got a new job and you were confident after getting the contract signed, that you will do it really well. But your boss did forget to tell you what your targets are. So you were not able to make the decision in which direction you need to work. You tried out several directions, but after a while, you realize it is not producing results. So you keep losing your motivation and energy. And even worse, after a while also your confidence. This is the frustration phase.

This was not only your fault because as an employee you are working on targets of other people. But you can prevent it by asking for the clarification of your target. Actually, you must ask! Asking for it is your responsibility if they are not clear.

Let’s switch the perspective: Now you are the boss!

Have you ever had a new employee who seemed to be motivated? Sure, most employees are highly motivated when they start a new job. But after some time every new employee loses his motivation. How can you help him? Look at the second equation. There are two things for you to work on:

1. Clarify the targets

2. Improve her or his self-confidence

how to build confidence

Agree with him on targets, that seem to be achievable for him. This supports both, the clarification of the targets and – if he believes that he can make it – it improves your employee’s self-confidence at the same time. The other thing is to encourage her or him to write a daily success journal.

By the way, everyone is going through this frustration phase, each and every time when you are learning something new. The more enthusiastic you are in the beginning the deeper the frustration phase will be. You are pretty well off, if you wrote down your successes during the enthusiastic phase, to be able to read them in the frustration phase.

So how to do it on your own, just for your own motivation and energy?

On the first thing, we will work in our business retreats, where we dig deep into our values to find out about our mission, vision and break them down into clear and achievable targets. And the second thing is, to write your success journal.

How to build confidence: For how long do you need to do it?

The great news is: Not forever! I would recommend, just to do it only as long as you live!

How to build confidence: How does it work?

Thinking about your day and concentrating on your successes is a priming exercise. This is very similar to writing a gratitude journal. It makes your brain focus on the positive things of the day. The best time to do it is just before you go to sleep. So you subconscious keeps working on it all night. This brings the fastest results.

How to build confidence: Make the best use out of your success journal

Whenever you feel low on energy you can read in it, which gives you a kick for your self-confidence. Also reviewing your targets helps. Both require that you wrote it down before! By the business retreat, we make sure that you will have clear targets written down. And for your success journal, get someone with authority whom you respect, who does not rely on a good relationship to you. Have this person controlling you, that you write your success journal every day, at least 5 days a week.

During our next

Business Retreat in Bali

we will also train to write the success journal and focus on the successes. After that, you will be doing it almost automatically.

 

Greetings in Indonesian

Happy Haircut – Greetings in Indonesian

Due to my bad Indonesian skills, I got a Happy Haircut. But at least I manage some Greetings in Indonesian.

After learning these greeting in Indonesian, you’d be ready for your take of to Bali!

Hi good morning,

Happy Haircut

As you can see, yesterday I had the worst hairdresser experience ever. Actually, the happy haircut was created due to a communication problem. So I definitely need to learn some more Bahasa Indonesia to avoid another happy haircut like that. Actually, I already picked up a little bit.

Greetings in Indonesian

If it is in the morning you say: “Salamat pagi”

Or if it is in the evening it is: “Salamat malam”

If it is time to eat, it is: “Salamat macan”

And if it is a girl coming the other way, I keep saying: “Salamat sayang”

Which actually means “darling”. It’s no propper Indonesian, I know that. But it creates always a smile in the other persons face.

Happy HaircutAnd then, another very essential one: If it is an Australian bloke you say: “Salamat Bintang”

So that means cheers mate.

 

After this preparation,

You’d be ready for your take of to Bali!

 

Learn some more greetings in Indonesian, with even better pronunciation than mine:

Sex is no option

Sex is no option

Sex is no option.

Sex is no option

It is a basic need.

And that’s why: Sex is a must!


Source: www.actualized.org Thank you Leo, I couldn’t explain it any better!

Sex is no option: Sex is not love

No, it is not the same. But sex is the strongest component of love. And the desire for sex is the strongest driver for love. It is probably the best if both come together. Both participants, as well as sex and love. Actually, one person cannot satisfy all the needs of another one. That’s why we work with teams and do not love exclusively one person. For some reason, sex gets called “making love”, pretty wise words.

Sex is no option: Sex is bad

To consider sex as something bad is nothing than religious brainfuck. Each and every one of us, and any creature on the planet is a result of sex. So, what can be bad about Sex? Everyone is a part of the universe and some people interpret the universe as one infinite creature. Sex is sourly needed to rebuild and maintain the whole universal creature.

Sex is no option: Sex Sells

The strongest driver any being got, is sexual attraction. Sex sells! Why? Because our desire for sex is embedded so deeply in our reptile brain, that we cannot ignore the feelings it creates. And it is the greatest source of energy, tantric– or kundalini-energy. Show me an unmotivated person, and I show you someone, who hasn’t had good sex for a long time. And he or she has probably times of depression, because of not feeling loved. The fear of not feeling loved is the strongest fear we can experience. Because already as a baby we rely on it to survive, so not feeling loved includes the fear of death.

Sex is no option: Monogamy is a fallacy

Because monogamy is against (human) nature. There are no animals, that are living in monogamy, and the human being is nothing like another species of animal. There have been good reasons to invent the idea of monogamy. In times, when sexual deceases where spreading around the world, and killing the majority of the population, it was a smart idea to recommend everybody to stay monogamous. But nowadays, where the diseases can be treated medically and condoms are available to prevent them, there is no reason anymore for this rule. We only keep this rule, because we are used to it.

Sex is no option: Sex only for married people

A marriage is nothing but a financial contract. It does not protect love, not even sympathy. Hollywood makes us believe that romantic love needs a marriage, but hardly anything is further away from the truth than that. A relationship is a game between harmony and tension. Most people enjoy the time at the start of a relationship, the first flirt, conversation, touch, kiss, another date, first sex, playfully trying out what is possible. As soon as they try to conserve this, by getting engaged or married the playfulness gets lost. Having a secure relationship means boredom and kills the relationship in the long run. Now another flirt becomes interesting, maybe more …

Sex is no option: That’s just an opinion

Of cause it is only an opinion. But everything we think that we know is only an opinion. There is not objective truth. Anything we see, hear, feel, smell and taste go through the filter of our frontal leap. Everybody got a different filter, which determines what is essential for us. Out of 2,700,000 junks of information, our senses are receiving every second, our frontal leap deletes anything our brain cannot process.

Sex is no option: The brain lottery

The processing speed of our brain is 74 junks of information per second. Imagine 10 people are watching and experiencing the same soccer game. And each of their frontal leaps deletes 2,699,926 junks of information. For everybody something different is essential. So everyone got his own unique filter. How much will have the remaining 74 junks in common? They got as much in common as the lottery numbers from last week, with the numbers of this week! Based on this selection our brain builds a picture of what is happening around us. I am more than surprised that by the end of a soccer game most of the visitors can agree on the same team that won.

Good for us, because not all of us do not consider the same person as attractive.

Sex is no option: Sex creates jealousy

Being jealous is not inborn, but only a sign of low self-confidence. Not love nor sex can improve or fix that problem. Only working on your self-confidence can solve it. And there are methods available, to improve your self-confidence. And some of them are so easy to execute, that you will have a hard time to believe that it will work, for example writing a daily success journal. But it workes, it just needs some time and does not show instant results. But in the long run, it makes you so much more confident about yourself.

Learn how to improve your self-confidence

How to Turn a Weakness Into a Strength

Turning your weakness into a strength

or turning your mistake into a success

I parked my scooter in front of the bank. It was pretty crowded, not only in the parking area but also inside. The security person at the entrance told me, that they will not serve me anymore today. So I went back to my scooter. When parking out, I touched the next scooter. That one fell over and another one fell over as well. So I stopped to put the other scooters back up. The first one did not have a damage, but from the second one, the mirror was broken. I didn’t know, that I am gonna turn my mistake into a success. But that’s how I met Tracy Wilkinson.

We exchanged phone numbers. And already one day later Tracy got the broken mirror fixed. She sent me a message with the invoice, how much I had to pay. Meanwhile, I left Bali for a trip to the Gili Islands. Probably Tracy thought, she will never gonna see me again … But about two weeks later I turned up at her office to fix the damage I created.

Tracy the multi-entrepreneur

Turning weakness into a strength

Tracy Wilkinson

I learned from her, that she runs a business called Western Influences. And I found out, that she is a multi-entrepreneur, running some other companies as well. We found that we got much in common, with our ideas about personal development and business. That’s why, we met several times for dinner, and we had a very enjoyable exchange of ideas and thoughts. She also joined my mastermind group and very soon she became one of the most active participants. For me, it was a big win to get to know her.

For heaven’s sake, I smashed the mirror of her scooter! So my mistake turned into a success. Nowadays I think each time when I enter the bank: let’s smash a scooter and make more friends. Because I learned from her, that

Tracy managed to turn her weakness into a strength

Read her amazing story:

How she snatched from the jaws of death, already 13 times!

Dear Tracy,

Keep on Turning your weaknesses into strengths!

What a wonderful story! Time to celebrate your health and your courage, to get through all of this. In our conversations I always felt, the big optimism and gratefulness, you are carrying in your heart. So I guess that’s what made it become so strong again!

I am so happy for you and glad that I got to know you!

Thank you
Klaus

How to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business

I was listening to the audiobook “The Road Less Stupid” and I enjoyed it because it added a lot of new ideas to my entrepreneurial thinking time.


Today is the most essential day of your life. Thinking time is the most valuable time of your day.

One controversial question about how to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business I got out of it is:

“If I would be my competition:
What would I do, to create the biggest damage to my business?”

It means: My own company is A, and my competition is B. What would I do, in the role of company B = my competitor? If I would be company B, what could I do, to damage company A’s = my business?

The first thing to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business that came to my mind was not very charming: “A shit storm on Facebook” 😮 So I posted the following question to the members of my mastermind group:

Klaus Forster:
The best thinking time question I got today is: If I would be my competition, what would I do if I’d be my competitor to create the biggest damage to my business?

This started a lively conversation about it with a lady, who was working for television. Where they need to attract a lot of attention. Due to the fact, that bad news is selling better, they need to come up with bad news.

Let me share her story about how to ruin someone’s life or business:

It kinda remind me of my argue with one of my producer long time ago, probably 14 years ago. So one day our competitor TV series got into number 1. My producer said “So what can we make to take them down?” My reply was I don’t want to create something to take someone down, that is not a good intention. If I want to create something my intention should be to make something good that people can enjoy and add value to their life.

He was angry. So we created something and we only managed to get into top 10. He was even more angry when my other TV series, which I made with another TV company made it to number 1. He thought I paid more attention to the other company.

Thinking it in another way

The truth was, when I created that TV series I put all my heart into it. I did my research about the hospital, medical doctors, met survivors, that was why the series seemed real and touched many people’s heart. The story was about a teenagers having leukemia having to deal with her sickness. Her family breaking down because of it, her boyfriend and friends going away. And at the end she realized, that the only person that will stand up is herself. And when she finally did, it pulled all her beloved back. Because they look up to her. So for me what important is your intention, success, attention, everything will follow.

The reason why I put all of my heart was because the producer had the same vision of creating something to add more value to life, not to take someone down. So we did what we could to make it good by spending time on research and stuff.

Other mastermind members added to these thoughts on: how to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business

  • I like that intention and believe, that if you go around trying to damage others, you damage yourself, in the long term.
  • Yes, there is no point of going out, to taking one down.

Klaus Forster:
I agree, and it is NOT the direction I like to think 🤔 either, because it NOT conforms to my business ethics. Because I think it is not a good idea at all to ruin someone’s life or business. Even though, I want to encourage you to keep on thinking about dirty tricks, illegal or non ethic methods!

It is NOT at all about implementing these ideas, but rather to find the real weak point of your own business. So that you can act on it.

  • I see, now I get it, it is more thinking of what your competitor could do to damage you. So you can improve in that area.
    Good thinking Klaus, thank you for making us seeing this.

Switching perspective to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business

Switching the perspective really gave me some good inspirations, which are worth thinking about deeper:

  1. “How to get as much of attention as from a shit storm?”
  2. “How can I provide more customer benefits by doing it?”

After thinking about that for a while, I came up with the ideas:

  1. Posting something, that is so funny that it goes viral, instead of a shit storm.
  2. Sending a test buyer to my competitor, instead of sending one only to my business.

So I would be able to create positive attention and to get the information, in which field we are doing worse than our competition?

Before I stepped into my competitor’s role, I was only able to think a test buyer checking my own business. Changing into company B’s perspective, enabled this idea. Doing this, I can learn about the customer experience they provide. Which brings me nearer to the answer to the initial question. So please, hare your ideas about how to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business in the comments below.

Probably you are curious why I chose the almost misleading title: How to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business. The reason for it is, some considerations about …

Learning at the Business Retreat

the search engine optimization for this blog. After checking the most frequently used keywords in my initial text, I found out that business, competition, and damage were the most frequently used once. So I put them in Google Adds keyword planner and played around with some phrases that contained these words.

Entepreneur SEO

One suggested phase was: How to Ruin Someone’s Life. It is getting seared for between 1.000 and 10.000 times a months and has a low competition. Further, I considered this issue as controversial, that it has the chance to go viral. And many people will read it, and – hopefully – benefit from it. So without doing anything bad to the competition, I implemented both of my ideas from my thinking time about in this blog.

Review on “How to Ruin Someone’s Life or Business”

(Sept. 20, 2018) Three months after publishing this blog, I analyzed with Google Webmaster Tools which of my pages and blogs are appearing the most frequently in the google search results. And it turned out, that this one appeared most frequently! It also had the highest click rate. But I learned, that the visitors of this blog stayed about 2 minutes in average, with is about 40% below the average time of the pages. This only lasts, to read half of it. And that almost all visitors left my webpage without referring to another page of it. So I learned, that I need to make the first part of the text more appealing. And that I need to offer more value to the visitors of the blog, by adding links to other related issues on my webpage. Learn more about Search Engine Optimization.

Take your thinking time about: How to Ruin Someones Life or Business

Source: Amazon

I Think About You And Me

I keep reminding you of thinking time, and you probably think: “I read that already a few times.” Why am I bothering you with the same issue again and again? I Think About You And Me.

And there is more to think about than you might expect:

  1. Did you do your thinking time today, yesterday and the day before?
  2. Could you come up with some new questions?
  3. Did you do your thinking time perfectly?

I Think About You And Me, so let’s look at it in detail:

1. Did you do your thinking time today, yesterday and the day before?

See, it is good that I keep reminding you. You have not build a habit yet, which is usually the case after 3-4 weeks of daily repetition. Probably you are not there, yet. But it is not a long way that requires discipline (= self-love) to get there. My reminders shall help you through this first month. Then the habit will make you do it automatically by yourself on 6 out of 7 days. On the 7th day, you still need a kick in your ass, as a reminder. Or you just take the deserved break from it. How about reading your answers on the seventh day, and ticking those answers, which you already implemented in your life? And celebrate your success!

2. I Think About You And Me: Did you come up with some new questions?

Who asks better questions get better answers! So when I Think About You And Me, I want to encourage you to spend some thinking time on better or modified questions.

For example, you might modify the question:

  • What would I do today if I died tomorrow?

like this:

  • What would I do this week, if I died next week?
  • Or what would I do this month, if I died next month?
  • You might even go for the long run: What would I do this year, if I died next year?

Just reading this, you can already feel the power of the different perspective! So go and change your questions to whatever serves you best.

3. I Think About You And Me: Did you do your thinking time perfectly?

Thinking time is not about a perfect process, even if I keep describing the process mostly. It is about effectiveness. Effectiveness is measured by results.

So the question when I Think About You And Me is:

  • Which of the ideas, actions, efforts, habits, … I was thinking about, are showing the biggest progress towards my dreams and targets?

Most people tend to do things perfectly. I know what I am talking about, I am German! Perfectionism is a stereotype of Germans (Japanese and Singaporeans, as well ;-). Which is a wonderful thing in developing great products, but it is a burden in terms of effectiveness!

Once again: Thinking time is about producing results, with the actions you take based on it:

“Effectiveness” is NOT Efficiency

Doing your thinking time efficient would mean, you get it done in the shortest time thinkable: zero time. Nothing would be worse than that!

If I Think About You And Me, we should rather think about effectiveness:

Which of my ideas, actions, efforts, habits, … are showing NO results towards my dreams and targets? And as a consequence: Get rid of those tasks. Thinking about this for one hour, to finding only one thing, which keeps you busy for 30 minutes a day, and which creates no progress. This would be wonderful. Even if you lose half an hour on the first day, it will save you 3.5 hours a week. If you subtract the invested hour of thinking time, you still gained 2.5 hours. This is a return on investment of 250%  already within the first week. Oh, women, I would love to have a savings account like that! Did you get no ideas, how to save 30 minutes a day?

I Think About You, so let me inspire you:

  • Sleeping time
  • Transferring tasks to kids, partner, friends, assistants, cooking, GO-JEK services like a car wash, cleaning, shopping, …
  • Listen to learning programs (audiobooks) during driving
  • Modeling ideas instead of reinventing everything yourself
  • Stop watching television, some people may save 1 to 4 hour a day!
  • Avoid traveling by car during peak traffic, by scheduling your dates and working time around it.

BTW: I Think About You: Personal development is, to have a better communication with yourself. And your thinking-time is communication with yourself!
