The LiveScribe SmartPen a Great Resource

I have always had a problem keeping useful meeting notes (during the meeting). I guess I can’t do more than one thing at a time!

So I would make notes after the meeting around the rough scratchings I made during the meeting.

A month ago I bought a SmartPen and boy what a difference it has made. Now all I have to do is remember to turn my pen on and write a bullet point for each major point in the discussion.

I tend to write Note X or Action nnn then leave a space after the note in my book.

After the meeting I can just touch the note with the pen and it will replay the audio from the meeting that relates to the note! Cool!!!

Squid is off the menu for some

Squidoo have recently announced that they are making some significant changes to their terms of use in the middle of July. This will probably send a lot of people into panic mode unnecessarily – just because that what tends to happen.

But for the most part it’s a refreshing proposed set of changes that will not effect most honest users of Squidoo. They are just closing the doors on people who write garbage,  spam, X-rated or overly pushy lenses. They are not closing the doors on those trying to get an interesting message across or promote their business/ websites in a meaningful and reader friendly manner.

So the main thing to do is keep all your lenses genuine, unique and interesting. Limit the number of links to the same domain to less than 9 (which is a lot anyway).

There are some topics that are now off the menu like

Free movie downloads.
Hoodia Gordoni.
Acai berry reviews.
Toenail fungus sales.
WoW gold farming.
Forex reports.

But other than these and similar type junk topics all should be OK. Just keep it clean, natural, original and interesting and you will be OK.

I guess the good thing is that they have spread the word a month in advance of the changes so you have a little time to sort things out if you need or want to.

Any thoughts on this?

The Man In The Glass

The Man In The Glass


When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you king for a day,
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say.

For it isn’t your father or mother or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass.
The fellow whose verdict counts most in you life
Is the one staring back from the glass.

You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum
And think you’re a wonderful guy.
But the man in the glass says you’re only a bum
If you can’t look him straight in the eye.

He’s the fellow to please-never mind all the rest,
For he’s with you clear to the end.
And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the man in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass.
But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.
