 @crestodina Thank you :) 

 

So for instance a term with impressions of 400 and position of 22 is something I should optimize my pages for?

 

Also, I'm a bit confused of the impressions figure ... for this particular term, the average position in Google Analytics is 22, but when I search the term in Google, two of my pages come  up with that phrase (with positions 12 and 14).

 

Do you know what that is all about?

 

Cheers,

Good stuff :) Just wanted to ask if I should pay attention to number of impressions in my Google Analytics results?

 

In my case, most of them are under 10, so is it useful to try to rank with these kinds of keywords?

Good stuff!

 

Too many times we are focused on just doing, but never analyzing what we are doing (and if it's really worth our time).

 

Stopping for a moment and taking a critical look at our projects will reveal those "black holes" where the time is spent (or wasted).

Great post!

 

I'm a positive person and an optimist. Even if I feel sad for a moment, I'm my original self very soon :)

 

One of the ways that also works is the physical activity that you mentioned. It's a great way to feel good again.

This is great advice!

 

Now, let me add something which is specific to those who work at home and have a family:

 

Setting boundaries important but when the family is concerned, communicating about those boundaries with them is very important too.

 

This way you are setting the expectations straight and you let everyone know that you're not available for a certain amount of time (except if there is a family emergency). This should decrease the amount of interruption that might otherwise occur.

This list represents things that successful people are doing :)

 

One thing that I would like to add (and which relates a bit to point #8) is challenging yourself.

 

When you do something you are afraid of doing, you are already successful (overcoming the fear). For example, if you are a shy guy and you still decide to take a public speaking course - now that's a great achievement!

 

I guess that one thing that most of the people are not willing to do is to step outside their comfort zones.

Very interesting!

 

Is Wunderlist capable of handling recurring tasks? For example, if I have a task that occurs on a daily basis, is it possible to set a task like that in this application?

There is another benefit of checking your e-mail first thing in the morning - especially if you have been away (for example on a vacation) for some time: You have some catching up to do and the best way to do it to go through your e-mails.

 

I did the mistake of working first on couple of tasks after getting back to work - only to realize that those tasks weren't necessary to do (I learned this after checking my mail).

 

So there is a place for opening your e-mail first thing in the morning.

No matter what the system is, you are still the one who adapts it to your personal needs.

 

If one part of the system doesn't resonate with you (even after testing it out), then you can decide not to use it and you can replace it with your way.

 

My own system comes from experimenting things and trying different systems - and then taking the best parts of the system for my own use.

I just slowed down on my blogging activities and I feel like a new person.

 

All of a sudden I got all these new ideas I want to try and now I can because I have the time.

 

Too much stuff on your schedule (point #1) and your creativity levels go down.

Well, it seems that iPad is getting better and better all the time!

 

I'm still wondering how it will fit into my toolbox ...

 

Also, how does the keyboard work (or can you have an external one)?

Number 3 is very important. Knowing your day in advance helps you to focus on just those right things.

 

No matter if you use a pen and paper or use an application, all it matters that you plan you day in advance.
