Ways we can work to make the Internet a better place for Knowledge

Here are five ways we can help make the networking of knowledge the blessing it should be.

1. Open up access.

Open access journals are how our knowledge system would work if we hadn’t started it out on paper. Their articles are peer-reviewed, more people can learn from them, and the information they contain is available faster. Open access repositories provide a public place where scholars and researchers can make their work available at any point in its development process. These repositories make information and ideas available even sooner and give access to the occasional worthy thought that did not make it through peer review. We should support them.

2. Provide the hooks for intelligence.

The strategy of abundance has two main risks: First, we won’t find what we’re looking for. Second, we will find lots of appealing stuff that panders to our lowest desires. A single practice addresses both concerns, although imperfectly.

The solution to the information overload problem is to create more information: metadata. Providing metadata for what you post in the new public of the Net enables it to be found more easily. We can also make more sense of it, just as a caption helps us make sense of a photo.

When you put a label on a folder, you’re using metadata so that you can find the papers within it.

 

3. Link everything.

Linking situates your work within its context, tempting us to learn more. When Jillian York blogged a thoughtful response to a Malcolm Gladwell article on social media and the Arab spring, she hyperlinked to a post by Tunisian blogger Sami Ben Gharbia. York refers readers there not simply to acknowledge where she got the idea but to encourage them to drop into the web of which Ben Gharbia’s blog is the center.

4.Leave no institutional knowledge behind.

Our existing institutions have produced so much knowledge over the centuries that it would be tragic not to bring all of that knowledge to the Net. For example, we should be encouraging many more colleges to adopt the OpenCourseWare approach championed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that puts videos of classes on the web for free.

And libraries not only have content in books and articles, but they also have the expertise of librarians, they have metadata about usage patterns that can be used to guide researchers, and they are at the center of communities of scholars who are the most learned people in their fields. The Net becomes systemically smarter when all of this is made available.

 

Traditional institutions need to be fierce contributors to the Net if our new infrastructure is to move us toward knowledge and not dazed ignorance.

5. Teach everyone.

If we want the Net to move knowledge forward, we should also remember the differences among the world of people who might come to our sites. The Net’s openness means that some of our visitors will not know the ethos of the site. Explicit explanations of the type of conversation permitted, and the quality of the information posted is therefore very helpful.

But no amount of explicit metadata is going to suffice. The Net is going to remain not just a common area but become wild. At least we can hope so. If we want the Net to move knowledge forward, then we need to educate our children from the earliest possible age about how to use the Net, how to evaluate knowledge claims, and how to love the difference.

Those are five areas in which we can work to make the Net a better place for knowledge.

The law of intentionality proves that growth doesn’t just happen

Anyone who has dreams, goals, or aspirations, needs to grow to achieve them. You must become intentional about growth if you want to make your goals and fulfill purpose. Some mistaken beliefs create gaps that keep you from growing and reaching your potential. Some of these misconceptions about growth include:

The Assumption Gap makes you assume that you will automatically grow.

Many people carry into adulthood a belief that mental, spiritual, and emotional growth comes on its own. However, we don’t improve by simply living. We have to be intentional about it.

The Knowledge Gap – I don’t know how to grow.

 

“If you are clear with what you want, the world responds with clarity.” -Loretta Staples

 

Many people learn only from the school of hard knock. Painful experiences teach them lessons the hard way.

 

Life lessons make people change – sometimes for the better, and sometimes for the worse. It’s much better to plan your growth intentionally.

You decide where you need to grow, you choose what you will learn, and you follow through with discipline going at the pace you set.

The Timing Gap – It is not the right time to begin.

Most people don’t act as quickly as they should on things. They find themselves subject to the Law of Diminishing Intent, which says, “The longer you wait to do something you should do now, the greater the odds that you will never actually do it”.

The Mistake Gap – I’m afraid of making mistakes.

Growing means admitting you don’t have the answers. It requires making mistakes.

 

If you want to grow, you need to get over any fear you may have of making mistakes.

 

“A mistake is simply another way of doing things.” -Warren Bennis

 

To become intentional about growing, expect to make mistakes every day and welcome them as a sign that you are moving in the right direction.

The Perfection Gap – I have to find the best way before I start.

Similar to the Mistake Gap is the Perfection Gap, the desire to find the “best” way to get started in a growth plan. However, you have to get started if you want to find the best way.

The Inspiration Gap – I don’t feel like doing it.

Motivation to keep doing things comes after you start, and this makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.

Did you know? Charlie Brown, in Charles Schulz’s Peanuts comic strip, once fell for the assumption gap, he once said, “I think I’ve discovered the secret of life – you just hang around until you get used to it.”The problem is that we don’t improve by simply living. We have to be intentional about it.

You must make the transition to intentional growth

It is better to make the transition to becoming intentional about your personal growth, growth compounds, and accelerates if you remain intentional about it. Here’s how to make the change:

  • Ask the big question now.
  • Ask yourself the question, “how far can I go?” You may not be able to answer the problem yet. But it will help you set the direction, if not the distance.
  • Where do you want to go in life?
  • What direction do you want to go?
  • What’s the farthest you can imagine going?

Ask the big question now.

“No one can produce great things who is not thoroughly sincere in dealing with himself.” -James Russell Lowell

Answering those questions will get you started on the personal-growth journey. The best you can hope to do in life is to make the most out of whatever you’ve been given. You do that by investing in yourself, making yourself the best you can be.

  • Give growing your best so you can become your best.
  • Do it now.
  • Face the fear factor.
  • Change from accidental to intentional growth.

People like remaining in their comfort zone. They get in a smooth groove and they don’t try to break out if it – even when it’s taking them in the wrong direction. After a while, they just get by. If they learn something, it’s because of a happy accident. Don’t let that happen to you!

The only difference between a rut and a grave is the length. Do not get in a rut.

If you want to reach your potential and become the person you were created to be, you must do much more than just experience life and hope that you learn what you need along the way. You must go out of your way to seize growth opportunities as if your future depended on it. Growth doesn’t just happen – not for me, not for you, not for anybody. You have to go after it!

The law of awareness.

To grow, you must know yourself: your strengths and weaknesses, your interests, and opportunities. You must be able to gauge not only where you’ve been, but also where you are now. Otherwise you cannot set a course for where you want to go.

Every time you want to learn something, you must be able to take the new thing you’ve learned today and build upon what you learned yesterday to keep growing.

Did you know? Most people underestimate the unimportance of nearly everything in their lives. They get distracted. As a result, they put growth on the back burner, and if they do grow, it happens accidentally instead of intentionally.

Getting into the right business

“Success, in any particular business, depends on one thing upon your possessing, in a well-developed state, the faculties required in that business.

Without good musical faculty, no one can succeed as a teacher of music. Without well – developed mechanical faculties, no one can achieve great success in any of the mechanical trades. Without tact and commercial faculties, no one can succeed in mercantile pursuits. But to possess in a well-developed state the faculties required in your particular vocation does not insure getting rich. There are musicians who have remarkable talent, and who yet remain poor. There are blacksmiths, carpenters, and so on who have excellent mechanical ability, but who do not get rich. And there are merchants with good faculties for dealing with people who nevertheless fail.

The different faculties are tools. It is essential to have good tools, but it is also essential that the tools should be used in the right way. One man can take a sharp saw, a square, a good plane, and so on, and build a handsome article of furniture. Another man can take the same tools and set to work to duplicate the article, but his production will be a botch. He does not know how to use good tools in a successful way.

The various faculties of your mind are the tools with which you must do the work which is to make you rich. So it will be easier for you to succeed if you get into a business for which you are well equipped with mental tools.

Generally speaking, you will do best in that business which will use your strongest faculties — the one for which you are naturally “best fitted.” But there are limitations to this statement also. No one should regard his vocation as being irrevocably fixed by the tendencies with which he was born.

You can get rich in ANY business, for if you have not the right talent, you can develop that talent. It merely means that you will have to make your tools as you go along, instead of confining yourself to the use of those with which you were born. It will be EASIER for you to succeed in a vocation for which you already have the talents in a well – developed state;, but you CAN succeed in any vocation, for you can develop any rudimentary talent, and there is no talent of which you have not at least the rudiment.

You will get rich most easily in terms of effort if you do that for which you are best fitted, but you will get rich most satisfactorily if you do that which you WANT to do. Doing what you want to do is life, and there is no real satisfaction in living if we are compelled to be forever doing something which we do not like to do and can never do what we want to do. And it is certain that you can do what you want to do. The desire to do it is proof that you have within you the power which can do it.”

How to use the will

“To set about getting rich in a scientific way, you do not try to apply your will power to anything outside of yourself. You have no right to do so, anyway. It is wrong to apply your will to other men and women in order to get them to do what you wish done.

It is as flagrantly wrong to coerce people by mental power as it is to coerce them by physical power. If compelling people by physical force to do things for you reduces them to slavery, compelling them by mental means accomplishes exactly the same thing; the only difference is in methods. If taking things from people by physical force is robbery, them taking things by mental force is robbery also. There is no difference in principle.

You have no right to use your will power upon another person, even “for his own good,” for you do not know what is for his good. The science of getting rich does not require you to apply power or force to any other person, in any way whatsoever. There is not the slightest necessity for doing so. Indeed, any attempt to use your will upon others will only tend to defeat your purpose.

You do not need to apply your will to things in order to compel them to come to you. That would simply be trying to coerce God and would be foolish and useless. You do not have to try to compel God to give you good things, any more than you have to use your will power to make the sunrise.

You do not have to use your will power to conquer an unfriendly deity, or to make stubborn and rebellious forces do your bidding. The substance is friendly to you and is more anxious to give you what you want than you are to get it.

To get rich, you need only to use your will power upon yourself.

When you know what to think and do, then you must use your will to compel yourself to think and do the right things. That is the legitimate use of the will in getting what you want — to use it in holding yourself to the right course. Use your will to keep yourself thinking and acting in a certain way.

Do not try to project your will, or your thoughts, or your mind out into space to “act” on things or people. Keep your mind at home. It can accomplish more there than elsewhere. Use your mind to form a mental image of what you want and to hold that vision with faith and purpose. And use your will to keep your mind working in the right way.

The steadier and more continuous your faith and purpose, the more rapidly you will get rich because you will make only POSITIVE impressions upon substance, and you will not neutralize or offset them by negative impressions.

The picture of your desires, held with faith and purpose, is taken up by the formless, and permeates it to great distances — throughout the universe, for all we know.

As this impression spreads, all things are set moving toward its realization. Every living thing, every inanimate thing, and the things yet uncreated are stirred toward bringing into being that which you want. All force begins to be exerted in that direction. All things begin to move toward you. The minds of people everywhere are influenced toward doing the things necessary to the fulfilling of your desires, and they work for you, unconsciously.”

You need to think in a certain way

“You must form a clear and definite mental picture of what you want. You cannot transmit an idea unless you have it yourself.

You must have it before you can give it, and many people fail to impress this because they have themselves only a vague and misty concept of the things they want to do, to have, or to become.

It is not enough that you should have a general desire for wealth “to do good with.” Everybody has that desire.

It is not enough that you should have a wish to travel, see things, live more, etc. Everybody has those desires also. If you were going to send a wireless message to a friend, you would not send the letters of the alphabet in their order and let him construct the message for himself, nor would you take words at random from the dictionary. You would send a coherent sentence, one which meant something.

When you try to impress your wants upon the thinking substance, remember that it must be done by a coherent statement. You must know what you want and be specific and definite. You can never get rich or start the creative power into action by sending out unformed longings and vague desires.

Go over your desires, see just what you want, and get a clear mental picture of it as you wish it to look when you get it. That clear mental picture, you must have continually in mind. As the sailor has in mind the port toward which he is sailing the ship, you must keep your face toward it all the time. You must no more lose sight of it than the helmsman loses sight of the compass.

It is not necessary to take exercises in concentration, nor to set apart special times for prayer and affirmation, nor to “go into the silence,” nor to do occult stunts of any kind. Some of these things are well enough, but all you need is to know what you want and to want it badly enough so that it will stay in your thoughts.

Spend as much of your leisure time as you can in contemplating your picture. But no one needs to take exercises to concentrate his mind on a thing which he really wants. It is the things you do not really care about, which requires effort to fix your attention upon them.

And unless you really want to get rich, so that the desire is strong enough to hold your thoughts directed to the purpose as the magnetic pole holds the needle of the compass, it will hardly be worthwhile for you to try to carry out the instructions given in this blog series.”

The right to be rich

Whatever may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich. No one can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money, for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with.

A person develops in mind, soul, and body by making use of things, and society is so organized that man must have money in order to become the possessor of things. Therefore, the basis of all advancement must be the science of getting rich.

The object of all life is development, and everything that lives has an inalienable right to all the development it is capable of attaining. A person’s right to life means his right to have the free and unrestricted use of all the things which may be necessary to his fullest mental, spiritual, and physical unfoldment; or, in other words, his right to be rich.

There is nothing wrong in wanting to get rich. The desire for riches is really the desire for a richer, fuller, and more abundant life – and that desire is praiseworthy. The person who does not desire to live more abundantly is abnormal, and so the person who does not desire to have money enough to buy all he wants is abnormal.

There are three motives for which we live: We live for the body, we live for the mind, we live for the soul. No one of these is better or holier than the other; all are alike desirable, and no one of the three-body, mind, or soul – can live fully if either of the others is cut short of full life and expression. It is not right or noble to live only for the soul and deny the mind or body, and it is wrong to live for the intellect and deny body or soul.

There is a science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches, and once these laws are learned and obeyed by anyone, that person will get rich with mathematical certainty.

The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing things in a certain way, and those who do things in this certain way – whether on purpose or accidentally – get rich, while those who do not do things in this certain way – no matter how hard they work or how able they are – remain poor.

It is a natural law that like causes always produce like effects, and, therefore, any man or woman who learns to do things in this certain way will infallibly get rich.

That the above statement is true is shown by the following facts: Getting rich is not a matter of environment, for if it were, all the people in certain neighborhoods would become wealthy. The people of one city would all be rich, while those of other towns would all be poor, or all the inhabitants of one state would roll in wealth, while those of an adjoining state would be in poverty.

Getting rich is not the result of saving or thrift. Many very penurious people are poor, while free spenders often get rich. Nor is getting rich due to doing things which others fail to do, for two people in the same business often do almost exactly the same things, and one gets rich while the other remains poor or becomes bankrupt.

From all these things, we must come to the conclusion that getting rich is the result of doing things in a certain way.

If getting rich is the result of doing things in a certain way, and if like causes always produce like effects, then any man or woman who can do things in that way can become rich, and the whole matter is brought within the domain of exact science.

Keep your plans as simple as possible; action beats planning

Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.

 

No matter how great and outstanding your plan is, it is not going to be worth anything if you don’t execute it on time. How do you know an idea is even marketable unless you bring it out there in the first place?

Reinvent the way you make a living Part-2

You haveto pull the trigger on your plan, and it’s better done sooner than later.

There’s nothing wrong with planning, but you can spend a lifetime making a plan that never turns into action. In the battle between planning and action, action wins. As you are well aware, creating a business is about actively providing value for others, and value relates to helping people and fulfilling emotional needs. It goes without saying that you can not help people by only planning to help them.

It is only through action you’ll be able to discover what people truly want, and gear your idea towards fulfilling their needs. You don’t need to make excessive analysis and create a complex plan. Once you’re sure you want to start a microbusiness, get started quickly and see what happens. wins. Here’s how to go about it.

1. Select a marketable idea and determine who your customer is.

A marketable idea doesn’t have to be a huge, exceptional idea; it just has to provide a solution to a problem or be useful enough that other people are ready to pay for it. When selecting your idea, endeavor to focus on usefulness instead of innovation.

Don’t think only about innovation. Search for innovation usefulness.

2. Keep costs low as much as you can.

Most micro businesses cost less than 5000 to set up; most of the time, all you need is a website, Wi-Fi connection, and one or two pieces of simple equipment. The vast majority of the “solopreneurs”

For instance, an Indian entrepreneur Trishneet Arora started his career with only a computer and an Internet connection and now he is a millionare and now his company’s networth is more than 2000 crores. Another one, P C Mustafa, who runs a successful Idli Dosa Batter company, started from a small kitchen and now his company’s annual revenue is more than 100 crore(1Billion).

3. Get the first sale as soon as possible.

The first time you make a sale in a new business, no matter the amount, it’s a very big deal. That initial feedback is very potent, as it gives you cues on what actions you need to take next. After an initial success, you will be able to reorganize your thoughts and decide what needs to be done next.

So, when you’re starting out, the question you need to ask is this: How can I get my first sale? Forget about competition from other businessesfornow; the greatest problem you face at this stage is the reluctance to start.

4. Make sure you market your product before manufacturing.

It is wise to be sure if people want what you have to offer before you put a lot of work into making it. One way to go about this is through surveys, but if you’re adventurous, you can also just put something out there, see what the response is, and then figure out how to make it.

Make sure there is enough demand for your product or service before spending your whole life working on it.

That’s why it’s so important to get started as quickly as possible and why the first sale can be so empowering.

Conclusively, in a microbusiness built on low costs and quick action, you don’t need to do a lot of formal planning. Mostly, all you need is a product or service, a group of customers, and a way to get paid.

Migrant Workers are boon or bane for India

I know in the present time everyone is afraid of COVID-19, no one has an idea of what will happen to their life in the very next moment. Everyone is locked in his house and there is a situation of panic and fear everywhere. Now at this time where the whole world is fighting for his existence, every country is fighting for his culture, for his existence, at this panic time there is a cause in our country which blown everyone’s mind and that is Migrant Workers.

What are Migrant workers?

“The workers move from one place to another place in search of work”.

women-workers

The above definition looks very simple to say but the pain behind this definition is so large we can’t even imagine.

BOON AT PAST

Yes, this is right the worker which is curse at present time for everyone, when this COVID-19 is not in this scene the same worker is boon for everyone. If we go 4-5 months back, the so-called “society” does not even imagine of doing one thing without these “migrants”.

From making any house to fixing any small household things, working in factories to make daily uses things To deliver these things to right place, and many more. These works are only a few examples in which if you notice workers do all the work from small to large. These are the works where you can relate that how much these workers do hard work to make our life luxurious.

CURSE AT PRESENT

Around 4 crore migrant workers are there in India and their livelihood depends on daily works. Now because of lockdown, they don’t have any work and this makes it hard for them to survive.

Although when things will normal they again give their best to make our life luxurious. But at this time they need some help and when God gives us a chance to help these people WE STEP BACK not only back but also criticize these workers and saying that “Why they are moving from their place? They should not move to their village now.”

worker's-hand

 

Are you serious? When I hear this type of argument I can’t imagine on what level toxicity is spread in this “society”. When the time comes where we all have to be united at one point to save our humanity, our people, we don’t even think a little about workers, their food, and shelter as well. Don’t forget when things will be normal, you will need them.

Conclusion

 

In my opinion, this pandemic not only destroys things but also at some point fixed the things. Yes, this situation fixed some problems like if this pandemic does not arise these workers don’t know what this society thinks about them, at least they know who thinks about them. At least their eyes are open from onward and we know ourselves as well that how selfish we are.

There is only a request for to you please use this dark time to help someone. At least for them who ease your work. If you can’t do anything, don’t criticize them.

OUR HON’BLE PRIME MINISTER SAYS

“WE CAN CHANGE THIS CHALLENGING TIME INTO AN OPPORTUNITY FOR INDIA”

And Yes we know our country has the capability to fight against this pandemic. So let’s come together and fight for our people.

THANK YOU!

Do what you love

To get paid doing what you love, you must connect it to what other people want.

Reinvent the way you make a living Part-2

 

It all sounds so simple: Pick something you love and build a business around it, and you’ll be smiling to the bank in no time. But is it really that easy? The truth is, not just any passion can be turned into a paycheck – there are plenty of things you may be passionate about that no one will pay you for.

You might like to eat pizza, for instance, but no matter how passionate you are, it’s highly unlikely you could craft a career around your love for mushrooms and black olives. Instead, you have to find something more interesting to the rest of the world.

 

Not every passion makes a good business.

Many successful follow-your-passion business owners understand an important principle that aspiring and unsuccessful business owners don’t. And it’s this critical point: you usually don’t get paid for your hobby itself; you get paid for helping other people pursue the hobby or for something indirectly related to it.

 

You must have the necessary skills to turn your passion into a paycheck.

 

In addition to passion, you must develop a skill that provides a solution to a problem. Only when passion merges with a skill that other people value can you truly follow your passion to the bank. Here is a simple formula for carving a new life for yourself with your passion:

Passion + skill + usefulness = success

So, you see that even though passion is vital to the success of any business, it is just one part of the equation. If you don’t have the skill to carve your passion into a valuable business, it will only remain a passion and nothing more.

 

Compared with working just to make a living, it’s much easier to do what you love and get paid for it. You just have to find the right passion, the right audience, and the right business model.

In essence, your passion matters; but before you can make a living out of it, people must be willing to buy what you are passionate about. You can be passionate about all kinds of things that won’t actually make you any money. But when you merge your passion with something the world finds useful, that’s where you’ll find synergy. And that’s how you can make some money.

Did you know? The saying “do what you love and the money will follow,” that’s not literally true. The money will only follow your passion when you merge it with something the world finds useful.

Make your business about helping others

Reinvent the way you make a living Part-1

Do what you love, and create a new future.

The reason almost 90% of all startups fail to thrive today is that entrepreneurs often fall into the trap of making products or offering services that nobody wants. Once most people have a big idea and enough resources, they immediately set up a business without first taking the time to identify a market need for their products.

 

“Find out what people want and then find a way to give it to them.”

 

The truth is, when it comes to building your way to freedom by starting a business that is based on skill, hobby, or passion, there is only one key principle: find out what people want and then find a way to give it to them. If you make this principle – the foundation of your business, you’re destined for success. However, if you start your business fumbling along, uncertain whether your big idea will resonate with customers, then you’re simply setting yourself up for failure.

 

To plot your way towards freedom, to create a business that will thrive, you must be able to give something that can add value to people. In this series of articles I defined value as something desirable and of worth, created through exchange or effort.

 

“Value means helping people.”

 

When considering starting a business, if you begin with the main aim of helping people, then you’re on the right track. Even when you get stuck as you continue to grow the business, all you have to do is ask yourself: How can I give more value? Or more simply: How can I help my customers more?

 

Ultimately, a business succeeds because of the value it provides its end-users, customers, or clients. The main goal of starting your own business is personal freedom, and the only way to get that freedom for yourself is by providing value for others.

“The secret to a thriving business is directly related to making people feel good about themselves.”

 

Moreover, we humans are emotional beings; and more than anything else, value relates to emotional needs. A lot of business owners talk about their work in terms of the features it offers, but it’s much more powerful to talk about the benefits customers receive. This will appeal to the emotions of the customers and make them realize how greatly that product or service will benefit them.

 

For instance, if you make wedding dresses and bridal accessories, instead of giving your company a fact-based description like “Wedding dresses and accessories,” give an emotion-based promise such as “Feel special on your big day.”

 

A feature is descriptive –“These clothes fit well and look nice” –  and a benefit is the value someone receives from the item in question – “These clothes make you feel healthy and attractive”.

 

“It is essential that your business focus on core benefits, not features.”

 

By default, we tend to talk about features, but since most purchases are emotional decisions, it¡¯s much more persuasive to talk about benefits. In essence, the more your business can focus on core benefits instead of boring features, the more customers will connect, and the easier it will be to profit from your ideas.

 

So how do you identify what customers really want? According to a research, humans are very simple and generally want more of some things and less of others.

 

We want more of things such as love, money, acceptance, and free time. And we want less of things such as stress, long commutes, bad relationships, anxiety, and debts.

 

Let the main goal of your business be to improve people’s lives by either adding something new and appealing or removing something stressful. If your business focuses on giving people more of what they want or taking away something they don’t want (or both), then it’s bound to thrive.
