Ocean Plastic Pollution?

My new course list building tornado is currently in production. Excited about the launch. I will keep you updated, though if you want little tasting plate straight away, then download the free eBook which has 27 Powerful Techniques For Growing Your Email List… fast!!!

 

Today’s episode is all about… well it’s abbreviated purposely and designed to agitate your brain. I want you to get angry… Though, before we get to that…

 

What ticked me off on holiday?

 

Ok, got to stop: Thanks for reaching out? I want you to pull me up on this if I ever say it…together we can do this.

 

Its super oily and slimy, sounds like someone I paid to read my tarot cards might say…It sounds clingy, insincere and way too false and flakey…It’s trying too hard to be your friend, and way too early in the conversation by the way to start… well, reaching out…

 

Can you please email me via my website at hotclicks.com.au shortly to become Philadair.com and tell me if I need psychological assistance, or on the other hand, are you in agreeance with me on this one? What other kind of repetitive verbal battering is rumbling around inside your grey matter?

 

How about the: “So, here’s the thing…” pre-empting every second sentence. Overused people, and starting to make you sound bit one dimensional if you want to know the honest truth…

 

Now what really, really bothered me… (cue the sinister music.) I ‘m getting serious here folks…

 

As Marc Maron would say on his podcast show… What the Fuck??

 

Or as Mary Steenburgen said on Stepbrothers: What the Fuckin’ fuck? 

 

How many miles is it to the deepest part of the ocean?

 

 

I’m glad you asked. The deepest part of the ocean is in the Mariana Trench (sometimes called the Marianas Trench), located in the western Pacific Ocean. At its deepest part, it’s just less than 7 miles (6.831 miles / 10.994 km / 10,994 meters) deep.

 

How many marine animals are killed by plastic each year?

 

Around the world, an estimated one million birds and 100,000 marine mammals and sea turtles die each year when they become trapped in plastic or eat it, perhaps mistaking it for a tasty treat.

 

It is one of biggest threats to all whales and dolphins occurring throughout the world’s oceans.

 

How long does it take for a plastic bag to decompose in the ocean?

 

Plastic bags can take 20 years to decompose, plastic bottles up to 450 years, and fishing line, 600 years; but in fact, no one really knows how long plastics will remain in the ocean. With exposure to UV rays and the ocean environment, plastic just breaks down into smaller and smaller fragments.

 

 

Plastic rubbish will outweigh fish in the oceans by 2050 unless the world takes drastic action to recycle the material, a report has warned on the opening day of the World Economic Forum (WEF)

 

The share of leakage into the ocean is at least 8 million tones, equal to one garbage truck-full every minute, and research estimates that there are more than 150 million tones in the ocean today. 

 

If no action is taken, this is expected to increase to two [truck-full’s] per minute by 2030 and four per minute by 2050,” the report said, with packaging estimated to represent the largest share of the pollution.

 

In a business-as-usual scenario, the ocean is expected to contain one tone of plastic for every three tones of fish by 2025, and by 2050, more plastics than fish,” it said.

 

A sweeping change in the use of plastic packaging would require cooperation worldwide between consumer goods companies, plastic packaging producers, businesses involved in collection, cities, policymakers and other organisations, the report said.

 

It proposed creating an independent coordinating body for the initiative.

 

Rather than spend way too much time trying to convince their respective governments… I feel we need to approach this on a different tack. 

 

How about a company funded by Billionaires (hello Elon, Hey there Richard Branson, Good morning Bill Gates, Whats up Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, are you going to do anything? Can you spare a dime?

 

If we don’t address this now, and stop pretending it’s high on everyone’s agenda when it’s not, by 2050 you and me and those that follow us will be royally screwed.

 

Irreversible damage, again those two words: irreversible damage. Fuck the oceans and this planet dies…

 

So  Readers and listeners… I need your help. Can we do this I hear you asking? Well, of course we can…you and I, us, fellow human beings, we have a moral responsibility for those that follow us into this life to show them we actually care.

 

What can we do together? Start messaging me and give me your ideas. Please! If you’re not passionate about this cause, that’s okay, no judgement from Phil Adair. I promise.

 

If we can build a flotilla of gigantic catchment boats with equally gigantic sifting arms, that roam the ocean 24/7 powered contentiously by solar panels unmanned robotic rechargeable electric Tesla ships, I believe we can absolutely avoid the very real, possibility of global decline.

 

This is now our greatest ever challenge.

Yes, today was a diversion, though I feel a very necessary one.

The people we love the most are depending on us folks.That’s it.

Let’s do this. I’ll see you soon.

How To Get Stuff Done – Even When You’re Completely Overwhelmed!

Productivity Tips & Trips To Keep You On Track

Google AdWords with HotClicks Pay Per Click Online Marketing Sydney Web Psychology

Today’s post is all about the struggles of an internet marketer. Why we do what we do…. And how to maintain those productivity levels.

 

When we become dissatisfied change has to happen.

 

Luckily, I never miss the days I used to work in the office. I had great times with my colleagues, but those days feel well behind me, and I feel perfectly comfortable working alone now. There are a few things I’m glad I no longer have to be part of.  

 

As a full-time online marketer, I spend most of the day communicating with others by email or on online chat. I barely speak to anyone on the phone or face to face that I might forget my own voice one of these days…

 

But not everyone is like me. Those who are extroverts often crave for hangouts, and a lot of my fellow online entrepreneurs deliberately make time to meet up with friends for lunch to keep their sanity. And I do agree.

 

You need to have real conversations daily (not necessarily verbally), to ensure you’re not turning into a weirdo. 

 

I love working out – without my beach running surfing and gym exercise, I would definitely go crazy. If you don’t normally move around much, just getting out of the house to walk for 15 minutes should help circulate more oxygen in your blood stream, and release serotonin to motivate yourself.

 

Serotonin is something that your body naturally produces. They help you motivate big time, too.

 

Working from home means you can work whatever way you want. You can work in pyjamas, or on your bed with your laptop without creating a work environment. Sounds good, right? But there’s no motivation factor in that kind of “no boundary” working lifestyle.

 

Patience is the key to success particularly in online business. Being patient does not mean you have to be agitated or frustrated. Everyone has to fail at some point to be successful, and has to learn from mistakes.

 

Be patient and stay focused on your goals – that’s the way to motivate yourself for business.

 

How to avoid becoming paralyzed by too many ideas

 

If you are a creative, you most likely the type that has so many ideas.

 

While it may seem like a blessing, it often feels like a curse and that you aren’t actually moving or taking action. You feel scattered, confused and overwhelmed.

 

I am no stranger to the overwhelming sensation that too many ideas can bring.

 

I have loved this journey of starting my business so far, however sometimes I feel paralyzed and pulled too many directions. While it is an exciting place to be, it is best to develop a process to help tame those ideas, and avoid becoming paralyzed.

 

Here are a few ways to tame those ideas:

 

Keep a running list. Your notes are just for you, so don’t allow negativity to creep in! Be bold in your future goals.

 

If I get really invested in an idea up front, I like to get as specific as I can in the brainstorming phase. You can also reference these notes anytime you have a sudden hit of inspiration.

 

Don’t act too fast!

 

Though your new idea to open up a shop, start an e-course, or offer a new service seems great up front, I encourage you to take a bit of time to meditate on your new idea.

 

You want to give yourself enough time to do the research and develop a strategy to implement your new idea.

 

During this time, you can really hone in on the details of this project, as well as develop a marketing plan for it. This doesn’t have to be elaborate, but it helps to be strategic in building excitement over your new product/service/idea!

 

If you run your own business, chances are, you’re completely overwhelmed pretty much all the time. I know I am. 

 

Because no matter much you get done, it seems like your to-do list just grows longer and longer. There are blog posts to write, emails to respond to, social media posts to schedule, products to create.

 

You need to be organized, not overwhelmed.

 

Most overwhelm comes from feeling like you have so much to do that you can’t do it all. When your to-do list is swirling around in your head, it can feel like everything you need to get done gets bigger and more urgent by the minute.

 

The solution? Get your to-do list out of your head and onto paper.

 

Action, not anxiety!

 

Have you ever had one of those days where you feel super busy and stressed, but when you look back over your day, you don’t even know what you got done?

 

I get so caught up in feeling stressed about everything I have to do that I don’t actually do any of it.

 

I’ll have a project to start that feels so big and overwhelming that I never start it.

 

And then, like something out of a horror movie, the more I put off the project, the bigger and more overwhelming it becomes.

 

It’s a vicious cycle that only has one solution: action.

 

Just the simple act of starting- something, anything- helps you build the inertia you need to keep going. 

 

So when you’re feeling overwhelmed and stressed out, look at the list you made and just start. 

 

Progress, not perfection.

 

I struggle with this one every damn day and I know I’m not alone here. As creative entrepreneurs, we put our souls into our work, so of course everything we do should be perfect, right? Wrong.

 

Sometimes (ok, most of the time) perfection isn’t about quality work, it’s about ego. At least it is for me. I want my work to be perfect because I want to be perfect. Which is obviously impossible (not to mention insane.)

 

And when we get like that, when we obsess over formatting, or reread the same email seven times, or strain our eyes making sure our blog graphic is centered– it keeps us from doing the real, important work that we’re meant to do.

 

Choose progress, not perfection.

 

The next time you’re stuck in that obsessive cycle of making sure it’s absolutely perfect, ask yourself: Does this actually need to be perfect? Or does it just need to be done?

 

Some things do need to be perfect. When I’m proofreading a document before it goes to print for a client, then yes, it needs to be perfect. But if I’m honest with myself, the majority of my work doesn’t require that level of flawlessness, and I doubt much of yours does either.

 

So yes, it’s important that we care, deeply, about putting out quality work. But it’s worth the reminder: just because it’s not perfect, doesn’t mean it’s not good enough. 

 

And as I said last week: Progress = Happiness
