Kickstart your idea, the Compressed Information is the new gold
Since I have the app Pocket (this is a App to make sure that you can save all your favorite articles and read it back later and it’s cross – platform, great) I use it daily since the beginning of January. Thanks to the theory and method of learning by Tim Ferriss in the 4-hour workweek, I can deconstruct the most important parts of the articles i find online. The bundle collection consists mainly of many hours ( evenings) spending at Business Insider , Entrepreneur , Wired , TEDx , Verge , TNW and other tech / business sites. This story is about other startups , life hacks , and inspiring stories of young entrepreneurs. If you do not find it interesting then this post is not for you and.. I am sorry. So take what you can use and adopt it.
So, I ‘m going to apply the 80/20 rule from the 4-hour workweek. This ‘compression’ is based on my opinion of the most valuable ( 20 % ) out these articles I scanned since January 2, 2014 to April 28, 2014 . With this compressed knowledge I going to try to make the ‘Most compressed learing page ever’. This can save you a lot of time and makes our busy life a bit easier. Enjoy!

8 Writing Strategies for People Who Say They Can’t Write
If you want to launch and grow a business, chances are you’re going to have to put words on the page. Probably many words on many pages. Which means there’s no room for saying you “hate writing” or “can’t write.”
Lose the “I’m just not a writer” syndrome. Everyone has the potential to be a writer. Continuing to tell yourself otherwise is nothing more than an empty excuse. Reverse the energy. You can be a writer. Tell yourself, “I am absolutely capable of writing.”
Don’t wait for perfect words. If every sentence has to be a flawless work of art, then you will sit in fear. The sweat might pour, but the words won’t come. Just start writing words on the page.
Set deadlines for yourself. Even if you don’t need to write on a deadline, set deadlines for yourself. And stick to them.
Don’t get stuck by letting yourself think that you have to start at the beginning. Just because they call it the introduction does not mean that you have to start at the beginning

5 Tips for a Happy Entrepreneurial Life
Enjoy the journey.
Don’t get too caught up in the daily grind. Make time to get out and enjoy the journey. A profit and loss statement will never be as fulfilling as a night of laughter with friends.
You only get one life. Don’t live someone else’s dream.
I’ve heard it a million times. “When I’m _____, I’ll be able to do _____.” Replacing the blanks with any number of terms — millionaire, famous and stronger, along with retire, be happy and travel — often sets you up for disappointment.
Regardless of what you’re waiting for, all you’re doing is renting the present out to your future
Success is the result of failure. “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” –Thomas A. Edison Do not get discouraged. Your success is just around the corner from your last failure.
Keep reminding yourself “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” –Steve Jobs Take Jobs’s words to heart. There is nothing holding you back from achieving your business dreams as well as living a life of happiness.

4) Making a online business?
Seven Secrets of Self-Made Multimillionaires
No. 1: Decide to Be a Multimillionaire — The first step was making a decision and setting a target. Every day for years, I wrote down this statement: “I am worth over $100,000,000!”
Get Rid of Poverty Thinking — here’s no shortage of money on planet Earth, only a shortage of people who think correctly about it.
Surround Yourself with Multimillionaires — Wealthy people don’t talk like that. You need to know what people are doing to create wealth and follow their example: What do they read? How do they invest? What drives them? How do they stay motivated and excited?
Create Multiple Flows of Income — The really rich never depend on one flow of income but instead create a number of revenue streams.
