If you know what a floppy disk is, than what?


This is a great way to segment your audience in advertising! Love it! BTW. Does anyone born in or after 2000 know what a floppy disk is?- )

Let me share a point of view of Jackson Teller, a student from the USA:


«I’m currently a teen in high school who knows other teens. Yes. I was born in 2000, and I know what a floppy disk is. I’ve even seen quite a few. I also know of The Beatles, The Vietnam War, fax machines, and the telegraph, just to name a few. Just because you’re born in a certain time period doesn’t mean you can’t know anything about the generations before you. Besides, floppy disks still exist, they just aren’t used commonly because we have developed much more efficient ways of carrying data».

And another point of view by Elizabeth Keen:

«It looks like the Save button, right? Jokes aside, it was something that people used to save documents before we got so technologically advanced. But it did look like the Save button».

Top tip for waiters – How to change client`s money reasonably!


Dear, waiters. Let me share an exclusive tip with you. For example, in a restaurant, a client asks to change a 500 euro bill. In this case, the waiter should bring:

— Four bills of 100 euros;

— One bill of 50 euros;

— Five bills of 10 euros.

From such a set, a polite guest will be able to leave a reasonable amount of tips. Bingo! You are golden-)

P. S. Additional tip. The waiter should not bring two bills of 5 euros instead of one of 10 euros. In this case, the visitor of the restaurant may leave only 5 euros tips. It turns out that the waiter himself deprived himself of half of the tip. There is also no reason for a waiter to exchange 500 euros for five bills of 100 euros. Because nobody will give you 100 euros tips-)

In this occasion, let me share my favorite dialogue from the Quentin Tarantino`s Reservoir Dogs:

ТОП-6 полезных привычек успешного человека


Пять лет слушаю подкасты, смотрю видео и читаю книги известного спикера и специалиста по эмоциональному интеллекту Радислава Гандапаса. Сегодня поделюсь топ-6 полезных привычек этого автора. Итак, друзья, поехали!   

1. Просыпаться рано

Самая полезная привычка определяется психотипом. Я жаворонок. Вообразил, что это моя привычка – теперь есть повод для гордости. Для меня нормально просыпаться в семь часов — это пик биологической активности. Просыпаюсь рано – очень многое успеваю сделать за день.

2. Расставлять приоритеты

С одной стороны, решил – делай сразу, не откладывай. Пока ты будешь думать –актуальность изменится.

С другой – люди часто принимают важные решения быстро, но иногда важнее точность выбора, а не скорость. Это как закрывать свой бизнес. Лучше не спешить. Поспи, подумай, сократи расходную часть, смени команду. Не спеши. То, что нужно отложить, надо уметь откладывать в дальний ящик, то, что надо сделать сейчас – брать и делать.

Интересно: Андрей Буренок – бери и делай!

3. Планировать отдых заранее

Я трудоголик. Люблю свою работу. Работать могу бесконечно. Я это осознаю, но выстраиваю жизнь таким образом, что работа занимает большую часть времени. Делаю это подсознательно. Поэтому всегда заранее ставлю отдых в свой календарь. Много работать – не всегда означает эффективно работать. Человеку все равно нужен отдых.

4. Жить по уровню своего дохода

Возможно — это привычка, возможно — часть философии, но считаю, что уровень потребления человека должен соответствовать уровню его дохода. Неправильно, когда человек зарабатывает много, а старается вести образ жизни на два-три уровня беднее.

Например, человек может летать бизнес-классом, а летает экономическим. Это неправильно. Авиакомпания инвестировала деньги, купила кресло в бизнес-классе, организовала «business lounge». Когда компания считала, сколько тех людей, которые могут летать бизнес-классом с повышенными условиями комфорта, то они учли всех тех, кто решил схитрить и полететь в экономе.

Когда твое место в бизнес-классе пустует, а ты летишь в экономе, то ты занял место человека, который зарабатывает на порядок меньше тебя и не может позволить себе более дорогой полет. Он не летит, а ты раздул цену на билет. К примеру, в экономическом классе билет стоил пять тысяч рублей, но поскольку он переполнен, то авиакомпания ставит двенадцать.

Понимаю, что есть люди, которые живут с совершенно иной идеологией, но считаю, что если мир, обстоятельства, люди дали возможность заработать, то ты должен в той или иной форме вернуть деньги в систему. Уровень дохода определяется уровнем потребления, и ваша потребность в деньгах определяется тем, на какие суммы вы прицеливаетесь.

5. Не хранить обиду

Многие люди злятся, обижаются, хранят в себе обиду, удобряют ее годами – не могут переключиться в другое состояние. Они не понимают, что обида непродуктивна, что она портит им жизнь. Те, кто обидел, могут уже не помнить о том, что обидели, о том, что был конфликт; возможно, они имели в виду не то, на что вы обиделись – у них не было цели обидеть. Даже если обида была, то этот поступок уже давно ушел в небытие, а вы все тратите свою энергию на укоренение этой обиды. Зачем? Считаю,что важная привычка, которую должен развивать в себе каждый человек, — привычка переключать свое состояние, не держать в себе обиду.

6. Разгружать память – грузить железяки

Если мне написали, позвонили, я всегда записываю входящие данные. У меня есть календарь, он всегда перегружен делами, когда мне звонят, предлагают встретиться, присылают письмо на почту, я тут же копирую данные, которые помогут мне восстановить в памяти информацию.

Занимает минуту, но экономит много времени при других обстоятельствах.

Телефон, планшет, компьютер  – второй мозг. Техника берет на себя часть нагрузки – я делегирую железу ту инфу, которую нужно воспроизвести при дальнейшей работе.

К примеру, телефон – это мое второе рабочее место. Здесь я могу позаниматься английским, отправить простейшую почту, прочитать тексты, которые я должен утвердить. Гаджеты – это рабочий инструмент. Гаджетами надо пользоваться на полную мощность.

Artemy Lebedev – To earn a $1 million is the stupidest idea


To earn a million dollars is the stupidest idea I`ve ever heard of. This goal is as stupid as dumb as a tree. The prominent Russian designer and traveler Artemy Lebedev has just posted in his blog. I have translated the abstract for my Australian friend Dale. I kindly invite you to take a look at Lebedev`s thoughts.

Why a million – not $900K? Why dollars – not pounds? Why earn – not to find it as a treasure? All types of charlatans and business trainers, who had never laid eyes on a million themselves, usually like to talk about a million-dollar goal.

Why earn a million dollars is a bad goal? All is simple. You never know what exactly you will achieve in the future. You can accurately know only one thing: if you go forward, work hard, do not miss your chance, then you will undoubtedly achieve much more than you have now. Even a tiny bit will be a good result.

Most importantly, you never know what exactly you will get. Euros? Friends? Books? Thoughts? Connections? It is completely unknown! You just have to go ahead and analyze what works best. In a sense, a million friends will give you a lot more than a million dollars.

To cut it short, do what you have to do and let things happen as they will.

“Brenda’s Got a Baby”

Album: 2Pacalypse Now

“Brenda’s got a Baby” is a first solo single by Tupac Shakur. It features R&B singer Dave Hollister. The track is dedicated to a twelve-year-old girl under the name Brenda who lives in a ghetto, has a baby, and is unable to earn her living. “Brenda’s Got a Baby” deeply investigates the issue of youngster pregnancy and its brutal effect on both young mothers and their families. This song draws from the dilemma of the poor. Brenda is used to characterize all young mothers in general. In such a way Shakur criticizes the low level of support from the government, baby’s father, and society in general.

The music video for this song was filmed in black and white to show the bleakness of the times in the ghetto. It starts with such lines: “Based on a true story”. Most of this music video was featured in a documentary film dedicated to Shakur titled “Tupac: Resurrection”, as well as in such video clips as “Changes” and “Ghetto Gospel”.

It also was the ninth on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Dear Mama” music video has been time after time ranked amongst the most excellent songs of its genre, emerging on many greatest” lists. In 2010, the National Recording Registry in the Library of Congress officially called this great Shakur`s song in the following way:

“California Love”

Album: All Eyez on Me (the UK version)

“Hit ‘Em Up”

Album: All Eyez on Me

Year: 1996

This song’s lyrics include cruel insults to several East Coast singers, especially to Shakur`s enemy The Notorious B.I.G. The song was recorded in Los Angeles in May 1996. After his interview with 2Pac famous journalist Chuck Philips described “Hit ‘Em Up” in the following way:

“It is a caustic anti-East Coast jihad in which the rapper threatens to eliminate Biggie, Sean Combs, and a slew of Bad Boy artists and other New York acts”.

This is also one of the most prominent 2pac1s music videos. It contains numerous impersonations of Puffy, Biggie, and Lil’ Kim. Actually, this Shakur`s song played a huge role in worsening the East Coast – West Coast rap rivalry. The disagreement surrounding “Hit ‘Em Up” owes to Tupac’s elimination in three months after the song had been released.

“How Do U Want It”

Album: All Eyez on Me

Year: 1996

The introduction to the song shows a satire of Biggie Smalls and Puff Daddy in discussion with Shakur about November 1994 shooting.
