Get Ready for 2017

You made it! You survived 2016! It doesn’t matter now what was wrong or what you haven’t done because you got the second chance- 2017. So thank to your life and move forward leaving all bad things and feelings behind you.

Here are my tips how to improve this New Year and how I am going to make this year more successful and enjoyable for myself.

As you probably already know, the 2017 are the year of rooster. I do believe in these things and I do believe New Year actually starts on 28th of January (two times of New Year? Why not ;D ). The color for this year is red or other bright colors. So go and get that red dress!! I did. I am not really a colors person, I prefer grey, black but this year I decided to go for those colors (well i will do my best…) and see what impact they will have, as they are symbol of luck in 2017. So do not be afraid to stand out and make this year bright.

Another important thing is to get that 2017 diary/planner if you haven’t got one yet. I know it sounds obvious and silly but time for all of us just gets more important and to manage it we need some tools right? I am not big fan of planners but it just makes it easier to see where you use your time, when you have spare time to do something special and when you write it down it is more likely you are going to do what you planned. Get the cutest one you can find so you will make sure you write in it and keep with you.

Probably everyone (well at least majority of people), take look back  to last year, to see what they could do, how they could improve their lives and so. So set your resolutions! Have an achievable goals, think what you wanted to do but didn’t do it. Read that book you wanted, get that body you dreamed for and so and so… Just do it! There is no better time than now.

To make it easier create your own Vision Board for 2017. If you visualize  your goals you are more likely to achieve it. So get those magazines, cut outs, print quotes that inspires you, put pictures or anything that would motivate you every day. Read this article for more help and ideas. ( Jack Canfield, America’s #1 Success Coach, is founder of the billion-dollar book brand Chicken Soup for the Soul®and a leading authority on Peak Performance and Life Success. If you’re ready to jump-start your life, make more money, and have more fun and joy in all that you do, get FREE success tips from Jack Canfield now at: www.FreeSuccessStrategies.com ). Also do research on pinterest as there are loads of great ideas and inspiration.

One more tool you could use is self-help diaries where you need to analyse yourself, write your goals, and it helps you to realize who you are and what you really want. I got this one for my birthday from my friend and going to use from the day 1 of 2017. It helps to determine your goals, get inspiration, ideas and motivation you need as well as to know yourself better.

What else? Get rid off old stuff you don’t need and haven’t used for a while, clothes you don’t wear anyway. Just make new fresh start and don’t surround yourself with unnecessary  things that would distract you. I know.. it is hard one; but I did it before Christmas and trust me it was the best feeling and I was so glad I did.

So Love Yourself, set achievable goals, invest in yourself time (even if it is a few minutes a day), create vision board, stay motivated and all you wanted will be achieved sooner than you thought.

Be Positive-Be Active-Don’t Give Up

Happy New Year

  80. Kurye olarak hizmet veren kişiler, bulundukları lokasyondaki her adrese en kısa sürede ulaşma yolunu bilirler. Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.

  85. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  87. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  88. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  90. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  91. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  95. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  96. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
