How To Know If Your Hustle Is Weak

first_imgThe time you wake up in the morning is an indication of how strong your hustle is. The later your sleep, the weaker your hustle. The more times you hit the snooze button, the more certain it is you have nowhere to go and no one to be. I know, you’re a “night owl.” Commerce happens when the sun is shining.The amount of money you invest in your personal and professional development is an indication as to whether or not you have gone “all in” on you. The less you invest in you, the more certain it is that you are not an asset that is appreciating in value.If you are not taking care of your health and well-being, you aren’t going to possess the energy necessary to do the work you need to do to succeed. You can’t hustle without energy to burn.If you don’t read, your hustle isn’t what it should be. Knowing how to read and not reading is the same as being illiterate. The ability to think well and understand your world is critical to success, and avoiding it means success will avoid you.What work you prioritize is an indication as to how much you hustle. If your actions indicate that you believe browsing the web and spending time in your inbox are what’s important, it is clear you aren’t pursuing your dream. Hustlers work on their biggest priorities first.A calendar with white space is an indication your hustle needs some hustle. A clear calendar indicates someone who is waiting for the world to act on them. Not too may things indicate a lack of hustle like waiting for work to show up. That isn’t your real work.If someone has to ask you to do your work and hold you accountable for results, the hustle is weak in you. Hustle means working hard and with a sense of urgency. It also means working on what’s important. No one should ever have to ask you to do what you should already be doing.You aren’t interested and aren’t learning about business. Your business. Your client’s businesses. The business of business. The general economy. Not knowing anything about business is an enormous drag on your hustle.These are all signs of a lack of hustle. None of them, however, are fatal. All are easily remedied with a little ambition, a mission worth pursuing, and a desire to live a life of purpose. You are here to live and produce to your full potential.last_img read more

first_imgThe Pathankot district and sessions court has accepted a medical report determining an accused in the Kathua rape-and-murder case, who claimed to be a juvenile, as being more than 20 years of age, said special public prosecutor J.K. Chopra.Rejecting the plea of defence counsel, district and sessions judge Tajwinder Singh said the accused, Parvesh Kumar alias ‘Mannu’, will be treated as an adult, the lawyer said.Mr. Chopra said the court has declined his application and declared the accused as a ‘major’.To challenge verdictKumar’s counsel A.K.

Jalla to supervise the medical examination and submit the report when the court reopens after a 16-day summer break.While seven of the accused, including Kumar, are facing trial in the court here on the directions of the Supreme Court, the eighth accused in the case is facing trial in a juvenile court in Kathua district.last_img read more

Joshua’s camp has indicated their fighter would have to get more money than Joshua, too, because he has proven his ability to sell huge amounts of tickets in England.There’s also the feeling that both fighters should fight once more — perhaps on the same night — to build up more anticipation for the bout.“They want a warmup fight,” Wilder said. “Joshua’s last performance was OK, but it wasn’t his best. They want to redeem that and they want to make at least one more good payday before fighting me.”Joshua fought last month, stopping Carlos Takam in the 10th round of a sloppy fight in Wales. A week later, Wilder destroyed Stiverne in Brooklyn to keep his share of the heavyweight crown.Stiverne, who lost his title to Joshua in their first fight, was criticized for being out of shape and didn’t land a punch.

Indo-Pak Express steams into last 8

first_imgThe Indo-Pak Express first chugged and then picked up steam to roll over Marcos Daniel and Eduardo Schwank 6-3, 7-6 (7/3) in the doubles first round of the Chennai Open on Wednesday.After two days of topsy-turvy results which went against the form book, Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi showed they are a pair which can play top-flight doubles and pleased the sizeable audience at the Nungambakkam Stadium.A lot of people have heard about the Indo- Pak duo, their bold statements for peace and their friendship. Yet, what this southern metropolis had never seen before was their chemistry on court.Sporting black T-shirts and riding high on adrenaline, Rohan and Aisam treated the sizeable audience to good quality doubles. For those who can appreciate the nuances of doubles, this was a match worth viewing.Agreed, there were patches of rust, but the duo’s communication on court and anticipation made for good viewing. What blends Rohan and Aisam is their basic games.While the Pakistani plays the right court, has a decent serve and volleys pretty sharp, on the left court Rohan’s attacking game and solid groundstrokes came in handy against the South American pair.To be sure, after the exit of all the Indians in singles over the last two days, people were expecting a lot from the Indo-Pak Express. As the arc lights came on and the crowds started cheering, Rohan and Aisam played like a seasoned pair, not coming under any pressure.This city has seen Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi in full flight as a doubles pair in years gone by. It may be too early to compare them, but the brand of tennis which Rohan and Aisam played came across as exciting.advertisementAfter winning the first set easily, the Indo-Pak duo did have some tough moments to deal with. Daniel and Schwank, dressed in white, tried to change the pace and threw in some surprise shots. And given the new format, ‘with no ad rule’ it does get a bit unpredictable.What enabled Rohan and Aisam to close out the tie-break was the experience they have garnered from the previous season.”It wasn’t an easy match at all. I was a bit nervous but my partner kept me calm on court,” said Aisam at the press conference later.There is also no doubt Rohan and Aisam have also learnt to speak well to the media. Asked to talk about chemistry and friendship, Aisam came out with a great line. ” My brother and sister are actually jealous I spent more time in 2010 with Rohan,” he said.Rohan’s response was quick. “We barely got a few days off to be with our respective families,” said the tall man from Bangalore.Earlier, top- seed Tomas Berdych came out firing to crush Ivan Dodig from Croatia 6- 2, 6- 4 to enter the quarter- finals.By Berdych’s own admission, these are still early days in the tournament. One could not but admire his court craft, athleticism and smooth stroke production against Dodig, who was made to look very ordinary on court.The contrast was sharp.Berdych is ranked No. 6 and came in with solid shows in the season gone by. Dodig is ranked 88, and was not good enough to challenge the Czech player.German veteran Bjorn Phau fought back to upset fourthseed Richard Gasquet of France 1- 6, 7- 6 ( 7/ 5), 7- 6 ( 7/ 4) after a tense battle that lasted two hours and 31 minutes.Gasquet, who won the first set in 29 minutes, was serving for the match at 5- 3 in the second set when Phau launched a strong comeback.last_img read more

With fielding improved, India are favourites: Viv

first_imgWest Indian legend Vivian Richards feels that Indian cricket team has improved in the fielding department in recent times and that increases the chance of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men lifting the World Cup.”India has improved in the fielding department recently. I see change in psyche among the Indian players. Today the players are more committed on the field. People like (coach) Gary Kirsten should be given credit for that,” Richards said while participating at a cricket programme “Power Play” here last night.”I think a good fielding unit will win this World Cup,” said Richards, considered the most destructive batsman of modern cricket.Richards praised Dhoni for leading from the front.”If you are a leader, you have to perform. And Dhoni is leading the side from the front.”Former Australian captain Steve Waugh also agreed with Richards on the best fielding side having the highest chance of winning the February 19-April 2 event.”Fielding is going to be an important factor in this World Cup. Catching, run-outs will play important roles. The best fielding side has the most chance of winning,” said Waugh.”India has a good chance to win the World Cup. Another favourite is Australia. Brett Lee brings a lot of aggression to the Australian attack,” he said.Waugh said he is “sad” that Eden Gardens will not be hosting an India match during the World Cup.”I’ve special feelings for Eden Gardens … some great memories about this ground. We won the 1987 World Cup here and there is that 2001 Test,” he said.advertisementFormer India captain Sourav Ganguly, who was also present on the occasion along with 1983 World Cup winning skipper Kapil Dev, talked about this World Cup being an open one and said it is unlikely a rank outsider can make it to the quarterfinals.”I am not a believer of the term, favourite in any sport. I think the sides led by Clive Lloyd (West Indies of 1975 and 1979) and Steve Waugh (1999) could have been favourites but there was none after that. I think all the good teams will reach the quarterfinal.”- With PTI inputslast_img read more

SP wins 7 RS seats in UP, BSP 2, BJP and Cong 1 each

first_imgLucknow, Jun 11 (PTI) Major political parties in Uttar Pradesh today ensured victory for all their candidates despite cross voting in Rajya Sabha biennial polls in which senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal emerged triumphant against BJP-backed Independent socialite Preeti Mahapatra. The results showed that BSP, which had backed Congress RS nominees in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, chose not to transfer its surplus votes to any other party candidate in UP. Besides Sibal, the others who made it to the Rajya Sabha from the state are two recent returnees to SP-fold Amar Singh, Beni Prasad Verma, Kuwar Rewati Raman Singh, Vishambhar Prasad Nishad, Sukhram Singh Yadav, Sanjay Seth and Surendra Nagar (all SP), Satish Chandra Mishra and Ashok Sidharth (both BSP) and Shiv Pratap Shukla (BJP). Although Sibal got through, the 29-MLA Congress suffered a jolt with Sibal getting only 25 first preference votes despite 8-member RLD committing four votes each to Congress and SP. There were 12 candidates for 11 Rajya Sabha seats in UP and to secure a seat in Rajya Sabha, a candidate required 34 votes. In the 403-member Assembly, SP has 229 MLAs, BSP 80, BJP 41, Congress 29 and RLD 8. Peace Party has 4 MLAs, Qaumi Ekta Dal (2), NCP (1), Apna Dal (1), Ittehad-e-Millat Council (1) and Trinamool Cong (1). There are 6 Independents. Cross voting took place in todays polling as Samajwadi Party fielded seven candidates but the seventh candidate was short of nine first-preference votes for victory. Although SP managed to ensure victory of all its seven candidates, only three were through in the first round of counting, relecting that the contest was close for the ruling party. Bahujan Samaj Party chose not to transfer its 12 surplus votes with it two candidates S C Mishra getting 39 votes and Ashok Sidhharth 42. The last-minute entry of Preeti Mahapatra, wife of a Mumbai-based businessman, in the fray which forced a contest, managed just 18 first preference votes and conceded defeat even when the counting in further rounds was on.

Prep Time: The Manual’s Top 7 Polo Shirts

first_img What Wrangler Is Doing to Make Denim More Sustainable 1. “René” Piqué Polo by LACOSTE 2. Sport Ultra Dry Jersey Striped Polo by LACOSTE 3. Single Tipped Polo by FRED PERRY 4. Bomber Stripe Panel Pique Shirt by FRED PERRY 5. Plaid Patch Pocket Polo by ORIGINAL PENGUIN 6. True Fit Short Sleeve Polo by FELDSPAR BROOK 7. Alec Jersey Polo by ONIA Eternally stylish and comfortable, polo shirts are offered in a slew of colors, styles and fabrics today. But our seven current favorites, presented here, honor the rich tradition of this shirt with classic looks and high-quality materials and cuts that only augment this evergreen item’s never-ending appeal and games-based history.Created by French tennis champion René Lacoste in the 1920s as an alternative to the stiff “tennis whites” uniform that was de rigueur for pros in that sport at the time, the short sleeve so-called “tennis shirt” later became known as a polo shirt when polo players co-opted Lacoste’s creation as a sportswear staple of their own. These collared, usually cotton creations with a placket have long since transitioned from the courts to the streets and were a favorite of such style icons as James Dean and JFK long before Ralph Lauren (redundantly?) put a polo player emblem on his polo shirts from his brand called – you guessed it – Polo.Polo shirts are now pivotal items in a well-dressed gent’s spring and summer wardrobe whether he’s an athletic preppy type or not. Try one (or more) of these styles this spring to score a stylistic grand slam that’ll last you for years to come:“René” Piqué Polo by LACOSTE, $125“René” Piqué Polo by LACOSTEOne of the few rare styles from the father of all polo shirt brands that does not feature its instantly recognizable iconic crocodile, this model in traditional, comfortable piqué cotton is instead emblazoned with an image of its Gallic tennis whiz founder, racquet in hand. It comes in five different color options and has a contrast color placket.Sport Ultra Dry Jersey Striped Polo by LACOSTE, $98Sport Ultra Dry Jersey Striped Polo by LACOSTEAnother welcome new option from Lacoste, this polo is both stylish and functional. Created especially for the golf course, it employs a technical fabric to keep you cool and dry while playing. It comes in four different color options and has a zippy striped collar that complements its body’s horizontal stripes.Single Tipped Polo by FRED PERRY, $95Single Tipped Polo by FRED PERRYArguably the second most famous polo shirt maker in the world, UK brand Fred Perry was also started by a tennis ace, who first put his name on clothing back in 1952. Part of the label’s Reissues collection, this piqué cotton shirt is an exact re-creation of a 1960s archival model but it looks more modern and fashionable than numerous present-day designs. It comes in six color choices, which are also exact replicas of the originals’ palettes.Bomber Stripe Panel Pique Shirt by FRED PERRY, $110Bomber Stripe Panel Pique Shirt by FRED PERRYWith a contemporary slim cut, this 100% cotton polo has a stripe across the chest that’s inspired by the heritage brand’s tennis jackets of yore. Available in navy (pictured) or royal blue, this spiffy shirt features the brand’s famous embroidered Laurel Wreath emblem over the left breast.Plaid Patch Pocket Polo by ORIGINAL PENGUIN, $69Plaid Patch Pocket Polo by ORIGINAL PENGUINThis American sportswear company with the flightless seabird as its logo pays homage to its 1950s and ’60s roots with pops of retro-looking plaid on this otherwise all-gray cotton jersey shirt with a slim fit. We really dig the “modern Mad Men” look of it.True Fit Short Sleeve Polo by FELDSPAR BROOK $125True Fit Short Sleeve Polo by FELDSPAR BROOKThis relatively young brand from New York has one goal and one goal only: to make the perfect polo shirt. In fact, the only garments it currently offers are this True Fit model in short and long sleeve versions, along with four button-down shirts. Boasting a precise fit, side vents and made from sumptuous Pima cotton, this winning top comes in more than 30 solid color options from neutrals and pastels to an eye-catching bright red, orange, green, magenta and yellow.Alec Jersey Polo by ONIA, $75Alec Jersey Polo by ONIAOffered in three shades of cool blue and purple, this supersoft cotton jersey polo blends 60-thread yarn count Supima cotton with a touch of Spandex to allow for some stretch in its slim cut. It’s truly a new luxurious, yet affordable, take on a time-honored classic.

Crosswalk Safety is a Shared Responsibility

first_imgAs university students flood into the province and another school year starts, drivers and pedestrians are urged to pay attention around crosswalks and intersections. “While crosswalk safety is important all year, we ask motorists and pedestrians to be extra vigilant at this busy time of the year,” said Bill Estabrooks, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal. “Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians must remember to share the road and look out for one another around crosswalks and intersections.” The province and Halifax Regional Municipality have teamed up to launch a crosswalk safety campaign this month. Radio, television, print and transit ads across the province will remind drivers and pedestrians that crosswalk safety is a shared responsibility. “We all have a role to play in ensuring our crosswalks are safe for pedestrians. The return to school is an opportune time to remind people, whether they are on foot or behind the wheel, to take the appropriate precautions,” said Mayor Peter Kelly. The goals of the campaign are to remind drivers that the person in the crosswalk could be someone they care about and to encourage both drivers and pedestrians to use caution. The province introduced amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act last June to help clarify the responsibilities of pedestrians and drivers when it comes to crosswalk safety. Drivers should also be aware that fines for speeding in a school zone are double and four demerit points will be assigned to driver’s records. The fines, range from about $452 to $1,452, including court costs.

Province Supports Healthy Living Wilderness Adventure

first_imgFamilies will soon have better opportunities and be active outdoors by hiking trails and canoeing rivers as part of the province’s new Portage and Hiking Trail Fund, announced today, Aug. 2, by Finance Minister Maureen MacDonald. “Canoeing and hiking are a great way for families to explore, be active and enjoy time together,” said Ms. MacDonald, on behalf of Natural Resources Minister Charlie Parker. “Nova Scotians worked hard to help balance the budget and now the province can invest in a better future that encourages healthy living and strengthens families and communities.” The Portage and Hiking Trail Fund helps community groups improve canoe portage and hiking trails, improving access to areas that can only be reached on foot or by paddle. “N.S. Trails supports hundreds of volunteers in communities across the province who are developing, maintaining and managing recreational trail opportunities for all Nova Scotians to enjoy,” said Vanda Jackson, executive director, Nova Scotia Trails Federation. “This additional funding for canoe portage and hiking trails is welcome news for our dedicated trail volunteers.” Beginning next spring, community groups, municipalities and other not-for-profit organizations can apply to the $125,000 annual fund to mark hiking trails and canoe portages, install signs and clear undergrowth. “Wilderness areas are one of our province’s greatest assets,” said Garnet McLaughlin, chair, Hike Nova Scotia. “I’m pleased that investment in infrastructure through this fund will make trails safer and more accessible for Nova Scotians and visitors looking for an unforgettable wilderness-based hiking and canoeing experience.” The program supports Thrive!, the province’s plan for a healthier Nova Scotia. The plan has 34 actions to support healthy eating and physical activity. Learn more at .last_img read more

Tim Hortons expanding Canadian head office team after shutting US headquarters

OAKVILLE, Ont. — Tim Hortons closed the doors of its U.S. headquarters earlier this week as it shifts responsibilities ahead of a global expansion.Spokesman Patrick McGrade confirmed in an email Wednesday that the coffee and doughnut chain shuttered its offices in Columbus, Ohio, but didn’t say how many jobs were affected.“The U.S. remains a top priority growth market for Tim Hortons and we have made the strategic decision to drive that growth from our newly built Tim Hortons Global Restaurant Support Centre located here in Oakville, Ont.,” McGrade said.“This move will see new positions located here in Canada focused on supporting the U.S. business.”McGrade said the Oakville staff will be supported by a team of U.S. representatives who work on the ground with local franchisees.Tim Hortons, which is run by parent company Restaurant Brands International, has historically struggled to find its footing in the U.S. market. Some progress was made during the first quarter, with U.S. same-store sales rising 8.9 per cent from a year earlier helped by more interest in its lunch menu.The company has been undergoing extensive changes since being taken over by 3G Capital, a Brazilian investment firm which merged the operations with Burger King and now owns roughly 70 per cent of the combined company.After the deal was finalized, 3G Capital began cutting jobs across Tim Hortons operations, laying off about 350 employees, which represented about 15 per cent of its 2,300 staff at headquarters and regional offices.Since then, the company has made smaller job reductions throughout its operations, though representatives have attributed it to the normal course of business. read more

Jerusalem Guterres urges political and religious leaders to refrain from provocative actions

“I reiterate my concern over the situation in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is essential to fully respect the status quo at the holy sites as before 14 July,” the Secretary-General said in a statement. The statement comes in the wake of a series of deadly stabbings, other violent incidents and rising tensions in and around Jerusalem’s Old City since mid-June, particularly near the holy site known as the Temple Mount and as Haram al-Sharif. Mr. Guterres welcomed the dialogue between Israel and Jordan, in line with Jordan’s special and historic role, and encouraged continued discussions on how to ensure security for both worshippers and visitors. “I am particularly concerned about the potential risk of escalating violence; urge all political, religious and community leaders to refrain from provocative action and rhetoric; and call on Israel to demonstrate restraint,” the UN chief concluded.Just yesterday, during a previously scheduled briefing to the Security Council, the UN Special Coordinator of the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov, warned that Swift, decisive action was required to revive negotiations and end the crisis in Jerusalem before rising tensions dragged both Israelis and Palestinians into a crisis that could impact the wider region.Commending decisions by Israeli and Palestinian authorities to restore access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound and services to Gaza, he called upon both sides to refrain from activities that could exacerbate tensions. “We must not lose focus on the need to restore a political perspective, on the need to bring Palestinians and Israelis back into an environment that is conductive to negotiations on a final status arrangement and avoids turning the national Israeli-Palestinian conflict into a religious one,” stressed Mr. Mladenov. read more

Orange crushed Bucks continue to roll stomp Illini

It was a Valentine’s Day massacre.The No. 13 Ohio State men’s basketball team ventured to hostile Champaign, Ill., Sunday and came away with a 72-53 blowout win.OSU (20-6, 10-3) and Illinois (17-9, 9-4) entered the contest tied for first in the Big Ten with both Purdue and Michigan State at 9-3.Both OSU and Illinois knew what was at stake in what could be seen as OSU’s most important matchup to date, and the Buckeyes dominated.It was a three-headed attack for the Buckeyes, featuring Evan Turner, John Diebler and David Lighty. Diebler’s shooting ability killed Illinois all day. Every time the Illini got a shred of momentum, it was Diebler who shot it down. He had 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting, all from 3-point territory.Lighty played effectively for OSU as well, totaling 17 points on 6-of-8 shooting, including 3-of-5 from behind the arc.Turner’s day started slowly, but he finished two assists shy of a triple-double. His 16 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists helped OSU maintain a large lead for most of the afternoon.The Buckeyes used an 18-6 run early in the first half to quickly neutralize the Illinois crowd. By the end of the first 20 minutes, OSU had pushed its lead to 36-20.The Illini climbed back within 13 in the early portions of the second half, but OSU eventually pushed the lead back into the 20s down the stretch.The Buckeye defense was efficient, keeping every member of the Illinois roster to single-digits in scoring.OSU now turns its attention to a rematch with Purdue at home on Wednesday. The Buckeyes used a late rally last month to beat the Boilermakers in their first matchup this season. read more
