I know everybody in the 20th century has had an experience like this. Whether its getting locked out of your car, apartment, or house, we all have to call the locksmith, especially if you haven’t planned ahead and hid a spare set of keys or left an extra set with your neighbors. Locksmiths are a pain in the butt!

Sincerity/Coffee Cards are a great idea for improving your sum of positive karma in the world. These aren’t actually about getting business. If you send the cards with nothing other than you truly want it will pay off. Also when I have free time during the day I’ll stop at a coffee shop and write a few. People you connect with will appreciate that you mad the effort to reach out.

Let’s say the bookstore anticipates selling 7 copies of a book per week, or approximately 1 per day. Some days, 2 copies are sold, but never more than 9 books in any week and never more than 4 books in 3 days. Let’s also say that books can be printed and delivered in 3 days, which is nearly impossible with traditional printing but simple with POD. Then, using the kanban system, when only 4 books are in inventory (the maximum that will be sold between the time of the order and the time of the delivery), the company places an order for another 9 books. This way, just when the inventory has no more books from the previous order, the next order arrives.

When I say ‘done properly’, I mean giving them a confident yet relaxed, mischievous smile. You know the type I mean, like you are doing something a little bit naughty but that it’s clever at the same time, like butter wouldn’t melt in your mouth. What I don’t mean is a completely over the top, fake smile. The important word to remember is ‘subtle’.

You smile as you park your car and cautiously look around wondering if she is arriving at the same time. Afternoon coffee is the perfect way to first get acquainted, although you had nearly suggested meeting at the beach and going for a walk first.

Accept That Nervousness Is a Natural Part of Any Performing. Long time well-known performers across many venues STILL get very nervous before their performances, yet they manage to give very creditable performances, time and again.

Imagine this scene: You are taking to a very beautiful sexy girl and she seems to like you. You can see that she’s having fun with the conversation and you can feel the sexual tension. You want to make something happen, but at the same time you don’t want to ruin something that you’ve just created. You don’t want to have her run off scared nor do you want to join the rejection club. To get the woman you have to giver a very good reason to meet on a date.
