10 of The World’s Coolest Jobs

15 Times YikYak Totally Understood Us

We’re all just trying to get a degree.

Yik Yak – essentially an anonymous version of twitter populated by uni students, took Montreal by storm about 3 or 4 years ago and hasn’t faded since. Since then, it’s easily our favorite app for some daily laughs, so internet reactions style, we decided to share some of our favorite posts:

HABITS OF THE WORLD’S MOST SUCCESSFUL

 

We’re all chasing the good life. 

September is quickly approaching, so what better time for a little inspo? The sky’s the limit when you work hard and lead your life with healthy habits- which is why we have created this list of the most common habits among successful people:

 

Read

reading

Successful businessmen such as Mark Cuban, and Bill Gates, among many other businessmen and women suggest reading for at least an hour daily.  Not only are they focusing constantly learning and improving (instead of who died on Game of Thrones this week), but also allow their reading to be increasingly effective by highlighting relevant information for future application.

 

Wake Up Early

wake up early

Many successful people such as Robert Iger (CEO of Disney), Tim Cook (CEO of Apple), and businessman Kevin O’Leary swear by waking up early. This is because the first half of your day is typically more productive, and your days result in having more time to spend working on your project, passion, or craft.

 

Get/Stay Active

stay active

Getting active at least once a day is not only good for your body, but as Anna Wintour (Editor in Chief of Vogue) points out, it can also double as a way to clear your mind, and a time for one to indulge in meditation. This can help you develop clearer ideas and goals, one of the foundations of success- in any field. Arnold Schwarzenegger also swears by this.

Write Down your Goals

goals

Writing has been scientifically proven as the most clear form of communicating a thought- and this is no exceptions when it comes to your personal thoughts. The most effective way to set goals, as noticed by Napolean Hill of Think and Grow Rich and Oprah, is by writing them down- they are not only mentally apparent, but also physically.

 

Budget

budget

The most efficient way to not spend all of your money is to budget. This will allow you to get a solid overview of your monthly spending habits, thus allowing you to create an increasingly better plan on how to save, spend, and invest your money. These are the wise paraphrased words of  financial planner, and founder of the company Financially Wise Women Brittney Castro.

 

Eat Healthy

eat healthy

Successful people tend to realize that the food you decide to intake is then fuel, well, fueling your body- the healthier, the better. There are many reasons for this, but a main one being that what you eat truly affects productivity and energy levels, greatly. Healthy food also relates directly to better decision making, less stress, and improved memory capabilities. Just ask Victoria Beckham, the former spice girl and current fashion designer worth over 300 million (and that’s w/o David).

 

Live Minimally- Say No

live minimally

Many successful people are able to say no. Whether it be to negativity, an extra drink/ night out, or on a project that eventually will astray them from their goals- they can say no. This permits them to stay laser focused on their own projects, and permits learning to view essentials over luxuries- and exercise living within their current means. Warren Buffet is especially famous for endorsing both saying no and living within his means as tips for success;

  • “If you buy things you don’t need, you will soon sell things you need.” – Warren Buffett
  • “The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.”Warren Buffett

Outsource Your Busy Work

outsource busy work

No we’re not talking about that paper, but what is being said is this: don’t waste your time trying to do something you’re not good at. This may sound harsh, but in reality it just means focus on the areas you excel in, and in your areas of weakness and busy work; outsource. Many successful business people have adapted this method, Peter Drucker being a veteran in outsourcing back in 1989, and today left a legacy as an author, management consultant, and educator- best known today as the Peter F. Drucker School of Management in the U.K..
