14 The “Bang for the buck” (货真价实) also called the value proposition. Some call it the cost-to- benefit ratio( 比例 ), meaning what is the cost in money, time or other resources compared to the benefit. Also called ROI (return on investment). Use your time and money wisely. Make sure the investment matches your goals through its output or return. You, success !!!

15 Motivation There are two types of motivation that humans respond to: intrinsic ( 内 因 ) and extrinsic ( 外因 ). Intrinsic is motivation from within your own heart, soul or mind. Extrinsic is for external (外部的) reasons. You, success !!!

16 Motivation Intrinsic (内因) motivation is “… interest or enjoyment in the task itself, and exists within the individual rather than relying on any external (外部的) pressure” (Wikipedia) You, success !!!

17 Motivation Extrinsic motivation is where you do something“… in order to attain an outcome ( 成果), [it ] comes from outside of the individual. Common extrinsic motivations are rewards like money and grades, coercion ( 强迫 ) and threat of punishment.” (Wikipedia) You, success !!!

18 Motivation Intrinsic motivation: – leads to greater happiness, – helps us to be more human and – leads to psychological ( 心理的 ) health. You, success !!!

20 Procrastination Procrastination ( 拖延 ) is the biggest killer of success. When we procrastinate our enthusiasm disappears and we spend time thinking about our problems.

29 YDYWYD (Your dreams, your wishes, your destiny.) In the story “Burning Bridges” Ameera comes to Cantara in a dream and says, “…you have the way—you only need the will. Turn aside from fear, lest (免得) like me, you leave this world before you attain the goals you were meant to achieve.” You, success !!!

30 I T L Ignore The Laughter Why? (Discuss) A Song: “The Fool on the Hill” You, success !!!

31 The Fool On The Hill - The Beatles Day after day alone on the hill the man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still but nobody wants to know him they can see that he's just a fool and he never gives an answer The Fool on the Hill You, success !!!

32 But the fool on the hill sees the sun going down and the eyes in his head see the world spinning round The Fool on the Hill You, success !!!

33 Well on the way, his head in a cloud the man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud but nobody ever hears him or the sound he appears to make and he never seems to notice The Fool on the Hill You, success !!!

34 But the fool on the hill sees the sun going down and the eyes in his head see the world spinning round The Fool on the Hill You, success !!!

35 And nobody seems to like him they can tell what he wants to do and he never shows his feelings The Fool on the Hill You, success !!!

36 But the fool on the hill sees the sun going down and the eyes in his head see the world spinning round The Fool on the Hill You, success !!!

37 Oh…, round, round, round, round, round and he never listens to them he knows that they're the fools but they don't like him The Fool on the Hill You, success !!!

38 The fool on the hill sees the sun going down and the eyes in his head see the world spinning round Oh, … round, and round, and round, and round The Fool on the Hill You, success !!!

39 Start and keep a Bucket List A place to write down all the things you want to do before you die. You, success !!!

40 Make Nurturing Friends Choose good friends, those who encourage you and help nurture your dreams. Let the “dream killers” be friends with each other. You, success !!!

41 Take Stock ( 盘点 ) of Your Life Once a Year You, success !!!

42 MBSF Maintain Body Soul Family You, success !!!

43 Time Time is the only limited resource you have. Use it well. Use it to support YOUR goals. You, success !!!

44 Time Management Earlier we mentioned PPPPP but how can we best manage our time? Work “flat out” ( 竭尽全力的什么都去做 ) or “do few things but do them well” ( 做少却做精 ) ??? You, success !!!

45 Time Management Many somewhat successful people use the “work flat out” method of managing their time. This is not a management tool! You, success !!!

46 Time Management Other successful people use the, “do few things, but do them well” strategy. They concentrate on quality, they focus their energy on what they can do well. You, success !!!

47 If You Want Your Dream To Be, by Donovan If you want your dream to be, Build it slow and surely. Small beginnings greater ends. Heartfelt work grows purely. (Chorus) If you want to live life free, Take your time go slowly. Do few things but do them well. Simple joys are holy. (Chorus) You, success !!! Chorus: Day by day, stone by stone, Build your secret slowly. Day by day, you'll grow, too, You'll know heaven's glory.

48 Time Management Aids In order to manage your time (your most valuable resource) it helps to understand the nature of the type of things to come. We should distinguish ( 区分 ) between: » Fixed events » Projects with deadlines » Deadlines you create » Reoccurring ( 重复 ) tasks » Emergencies You, success !!!

49 Time Management Aids As the story of Ali Nakajavani told us sometimes it is necessary to set a block of time aside for large project. Sometimes you need to go away, turn off the phone, keep away from friends, avoid the internet, the TV etc. and work for a week or a month or two months to get a major project done. You, success !!!

50 Here is a song of regret. Sing it now so you wouldn’t need to sing it in the future. It is called, “Those Were the Days” by Mary Hopkin. You, success !!!

51 Once upon a time there was a tavern ( 酒馆 ) Where we used to raise a glass or two Remember how we laughed away the hours And dreamed of all the great things we would do Those Were the Days You, success !!!

52 Those were the days my friend We thought they'd never end We'd sing and dance forever and a day We'd live the life we choose We'd fight and never lose For we were young and sure to have our way. La la la la... Those Were the Days You, success !!!

53 Then the busy years went rushing by us We lost our starry ( 星光般的 ) notions ( 理想 ) on the way If by chance I'd see you in the tavern We'd smile at one another and we'd say Those Were the Days You, success !!!

54 Those were the days my friend We thought they'd never end We'd sing and dance forever and a day We'd live the life we choose We'd fight and never lose Those were the days, oh yes those were the days. La la la la... Those Were the Days You, success !!!

55 Just tonight I stood before the tavern Nothing seemed the way it used to be In the glass I saw a strange reflection Was that lonely woman really me? Those Were the Days You, success !!!

56 Those were the days my friend We thought they'd never end We'd sing and dance forever and a day We'd live the life we choose We'd fight and never lose Those were the days, oh yes those were the days. La la la la... Those Were the Days You, success !!!

57 Through the door there came familiar laughter I saw your face and heard you call my name Oh my friend we're older but no wiser For in our hearts the dreams are still the same Those Were the Days You, success !!!

58 Those were the days my friend We thought they'd never end We'd sing and dance forever and a day We'd live the life we choose We'd fight and never lose Those were the days, oh yes those were the days. La la la la... Those Were the Days You, success !!!
