Have you ever broken a promise you made to a child? Recall the expression he/she had when you didn’t bring with you the yellow bicycle or the golden unicorn with the pink hair? All those tantrums and the sulking can be the worst to deal with. Each time it happens you swear not to repeat it. Then you begin thinking of ways to make up and you know that you have to outdo yourself.
Here is when you decide to buy that expensive doll house or the limited edition action figure of the Transformers. Undoubtedly this act receives the desired effect.
Learning to compromise is one of the earliest lessons we are taught. Growing up, a lot of us have received presents on birthdays, Christmas and such where we got compromises in place of what we really wanted. Like a stuff toy in the place of a puppy and a Barbie doll in place of a Princess costume.
Then as we grow a little older we learn to make such choices ourselves like opting to study at the local university instead of Oxford or Yale and choosing to buy an apartment instead of a villa.
So far you can’t really complain, compromises have done us a great deal of good.
Guest authors on your blog could mean a lot of benefits.
1. A guest writer is bound to give the blog a fresh style. However nicely you write your articles, there is bound to be some common factor that connects all of them – that is your style. Beyond a point, your readers might get bored of the monotonous style. So to liven up your blog, you might have to introduce a new writer.
2. This has a two-way benefit. You are providing the writer an opportunity to write on your blog. In turn the writer would leave a link to this article on his or her website.

Can you carry a bucket filled with water?
Sure you can, child’s play, isn’t it?
Can you carry a bucket filled to the brim with water – but with a hole in it?
Now you are frowning. That’s tough. Water would start leaking.
Besides what I am asking you to do does not make sense.
A website without an appropriate call to action is no different!
Makes no sense.
The bucket, however big it is serves no purpose even if it has a small hole in it. Similarly, if you have a website, you have to place appropriate calls to action wherever necessary.
I was reading an interesting blog the other day. As I scrolled down the page I noticed this particular section devoted to an array of social media icons. There was everything there – a whole list from Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter to Digg and Stumble Upon. That was when it hit me how social media could affect a business on the internet. Several micro blogging sites and social media platforms change the way we share and interact with others. On that note, here is an article about something that will change the way people recognize your internet presence.
Google Plus is the recent entry that is going to give a totally new perspective to the way people search on the internet.
Have you watched the MasterChef series? It’s a popular reality show on Star World and many people’s favorite, mine too. Contestants are required to not only make tasty food, but they are required to make tasty food quickly.
There is a time limit for every challenge – even if the food is tasty, they might be out of the game if they do not complete the challenge on time. A chef would be out of business if he does not prepare food for customers on time, right? People don’t like to be kept waiting when they are hungry.
Not just in the restaurant business, time management is important for any task you deliver.
