There is NO excuse to steal what others have worked hard for. Put half the effort you did into breaking into businesses into getting a job and saving money. Wait, that would be work.

Spend the vast majority of your time prospecting. If you want—or need—faster sales results, the first thing you need to do is spend most of your time prospecting. Nothing produces more opportunities than time spent trying to produce more opportunities. You can make 1,000 calls over the next year, or you can make 1,000 calls over the next ten days.Trade face-to-face meetings for phone calls and phone calls for email. You can get more done in a face-to-face meeting than you can over the telephone. You can get more done over the phone than you can over an email (or 100 emails). You can take time trying to connect and going back and forth electronically, or you can get face-to-face and get things done now.Target and nurture your dream clients. You can call on everyone in your territory, searching for someone receptive enough to meet with you. Or you can carefully and meticulously choose a set of targets for whom you can create massive value. You can nurture those dream clients with value creating ideas, establishing yourself as a great potential partner now. Targeting and nurturing is faster than sporadic, aimless prospecting.Spend more time with your dream clients. The more time you spend on site with your dream client contacts and all of their stakeholders, the faster you will develop the relationships you need. Spending more time with your prospective clients also speeds up their development of a preference for you as a partner. You can try to develop relationships without putting in the time, or you can show up.Sell your process and the commitments you need. Your buyer believes they have a process for buying. But following their process doesn’t take into account all the commitments they will need to make for you to do your best work in helping them.

Nadal raced to a third US Open title and 16th Grand Slam crown on Sunday with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 rout of South African giant Kevin Anderson. AFP PHOTO / Jewel SAMADNEW YORK — Rafael Nadal reflected on his roots as a child prodigy from the island of Mallorca and on the influence of his uncle Toni on Sunday after winning the US Open title.The 31-year-old Spaniard defeated South Africa’s Kevin Anderson 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 for his third US Open title and his 16th career Grand Slam crown after having taken a 10th French Open trophy in June at Roland Garros.ADVERTISEMENT It has been a long journey for Nadal to his latest Grand Slam glory.Nadal won an under-12 regional crown at age eight and by 12 had captured Spanish and European age-group junior titles.By 15, he had turned professional and was facing such foes on the global circuit as Anderson.At 17, Nadal won his first match against Federer.At 19, he won the 2005 French Open in his debut, the first of nine Grand Slam titles in 10 years he would claim on the red clay of Roland Garros, cementing a legacy as the greatest player ever seen on the surface.It was early in his career when Nadal began his habit of biting the championship trophies he wins.Nadal added Wimbledon crowns in 2008 and 2010, an Australian Open title in 2009 and completed the career Grand Slam in 2010 by defeating Novak Djokovic in the US Open final, becoming the youngest in the Open era (since 1967) to complete the four-event career sweep.And only Nadal and Andre Agassi can say they have a career Grand Slam and an Olympic men’s singles gold medal, Nadal having claimed his in 2008 at Beijing.Nadal, the sixth left-hander to win a US Open title, added another crown at Arthur Ashe Stadium in 2013, again downing Djokovic in the final.Knee injuries took a toll throughout his career, costing him nine Slam appearances, and after he failed to even reach a Slam semi-final in 2015 and 2016 some figured his greatest moments were behind him.

Diary is in the head from 3 years old,” Nadal said.“Probably without him I’ll never be playing tennis. I’m thankful I had somebody like him pushing me all the time.“Because he gave me motivation I could get through all the problems I had in my career. I can only thank him for making me stronger.”When Nadal reclaimed the world number one ranking last month, it was the first since in more than three years he had topped the list.And when Federer lost in the US Open quarter-finals to Juan Martin del Potro, Nadal was ensured of keeping the top spot.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients But Nadal roared into the Australian Open final, losing to Federer, then captured his record 10th French Open crown in June, setting the stage for his title run in the Flushing Meadows fortnight.Only Nadal, Pete Sampras and Ken Rosewall have managed the feat of winning Grand Slam titles in their teens, 20s and 30s.

(Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)For some Oregon fans, last week’s loss in the College Football Playoff National Championship hurt a bit more than it did for others. One Ducks supporter, who made a bet on the game with his buddy, had to endure physical pain as a result of the Buckeyes’ victory.The fan in question, who made it clear that he still supports Oregon, was forced to get a huge Ohio State tattoo on his thigh. His friend posted a photo of the new ink, and he himself posted a sad face emoji.LADIES AND GENTLEMAN. HERE IS THE TATTOO.

LONDON – Retired German tennis star Boris Becker is claiming his unpaid role as a sports attache for Central African Republic gives him diplomatic immunity from bankruptcy proceedings in Britain.The three-time Wimbledon champion took up the attache role in April. His lawyers claimed in Britain’s High Court late Thursday that this protects him from ongoing bankruptcy actions.Becker says his role as Central African Republic attache to the European Union on sporting, cultural and humanitarian affairs means he is covered by a 1961 convention on diplomatic relations.Legal expert Mark Stephens told The Associated Press that in his view Becker’s claim is valid, but he urged Central African Republic to take steps to prevent the apparent abuse of diplomatic immunity.“Central African Republic should be asked to revoke his immunity for this particular case because it relates to his personal activities and predates his appointment and in no way relates to his diplomatic function,” Stephens said. “That would let the court case proceed.”The 50-year-old Becker, who lives in Britain, was declared bankrupt in June 2017. He is selling some of his memorabilia including Wimbledon trophies in an effort to reduce his debts.The former world No. 1 has criticized the bankruptcy proceedings as “unjustified and unjust,” saying he had been pushed into an unnecessary declaration of bankruptcy by “a bunch of anonymous and unaccountable bankers and bureaucrats” trying to damage him.“I have now asserted diplomatic immunity as I am in fact bound to do, in order to bring this farce to an end, so that I can start to rebuild my life,” Becker said.Becker was named to the volunteer sports attache role on April 26, more than nine months after his bankruptcy declaration.Central African Republic President Faustin Touadera said at the time he was “extremely pleased that a world star like Boris Becker, with his extensive international relations, has agreed to support our country.”Becker said then that he hoped to help improve living conditions in Central African Republic. A press release indicated he would have an office at the country’s embassy in Brussels.Since the appointment, Becker’s Twitter feed has shown no signs of promoting anything in Central African Republic. It was also not immediately clear whether Becker has ever visited the African nation.The landlocked Central African Republic is one of the world’s most impoverished countries, destabilized by deadly sectarian violence since 2013 with thousands of people of killed and hundreds of thousands displaced.The news of Becker’s claim of immunity was met with confusion Friday in the country’s capital, Bangui, where several people said they didn’t even know who Becker was.A spokesman for the presidency said it was up to Becker to be responsible for his own actions.“We’re not responding to something that has nothing to do with us,” spokesman Albert Yaloke Mokpeme said.But a member of the country’s Olympic committee, Cecile Kolingba, said “trying to brandish this diplomatic cover to escape justice, I find that dishonest.”Attacks by armed groups surged again last year in parts of the country of 4.5 million people, sending thousands of people fleeing from their homes. The unrest has created more than a half a million refugees, according to the United Nations.___Marboua reported from Bangui, Central African Republic. Cara Anna in Johannesburg contributed.

San Francisco: Tech major Microsoft has successfully developed an end-to-end automated DNA storage device that can translate digital information into DNA and back to bits, the company said in a blog post. The fully automated system to store and retrieve data in manufactured DNA is a key step in moving the technology out of the research lab and into commercial datacenters. The novel system, developed in partnership with University of Washington, translated “HELLO” into DNA and converted it back to digital data in just 21 hours, reported the paper published in Nature Scientific Reports journal. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year “Our ultimate goal is to put a system into production that, to the end user, looks very much like any other cloud storage service — bits are sent to a datacenter and stored there and then they just appear when the customer wants them,” Karin Strauss, principal researcher at Microsoft, wrote in the post on Thursday. “To do that, we needed to prove that this is practical from an automation perspective,” Strauss added. The system has so far stored one gigabyte of data in DNA, which includes cat photographs, great literary works, pop videos as well as archival recordings in DNA, which could be retrieved without errors, the researchers said. Also Read – New HP Pavilion x360 notebook with in-built Alexa in India The automated DNA data storage system uses software that converts the ones and zeros of digital data into the As, Ts, Cs and Gs that make up the building blocks of DNA. Then it uses cheap lab equipments to flow the necessary liquids and chemicals into a synthesiser that builds manufactured snippets of DNA and to push them into a storage vessel. When the system needs to retrieve the information, it adds other chemicals to properly prepare the DNA and uses microfluidic pumps to push the liquids into other parts of the system that “read” the DNA sequences and convert it back to information that a computer can understand. Information is stored in synthetic DNA molecules created in a lab, not DNA from humans or other living things, and can be encrypted before it is sent to the system. Further, the team also developed techniques to search for and retrieve only images that contain an apple or a green bicycle — using the molecules themselves and without having to convert the files back into a digital format. “We are definitely seeing a new kind of computer system being born here where you are using molecules to store data and electronics for control and processing. Putting them together holds some really interesting possibilities for the future,” said Luis Ceze, Professor at the varsity.
Kolkata: Saumitra Khan, a former Trinamool Congress leader who is now contesting the Lok Sabha election from Bishnupur (SC) constituency after he joined the saffron brigade in January, has been under the scanner of the Election Commission for not vacating a government guest house. As per the Model Code of Conduct (MCC), nobody can occupy a government guest house following the notification of elections particularly when he/she is contesting the elections. The office of the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) may seek a report from the District Election Officer (DEO) of West Burdwan in this regard. The district TMC leaders have recently registered a complaint with the Returning Officer of Durgapur saying that Khan has allegedly been staying in a government-owned guest house and had held a press conference there. In their complaint, the TMC leaders pointed out that Khan has been staying at the guest house in Durgapur flouting the ECI norms. They alleged that a candidate who is contesting the election cannot stay at a government guest house following the notification. After the matter came to light, the Commission has taken cognizance. The election officials will examine the report submitted by the DEO. In another development, the office of the Chief Electoral Officer has sent a report to the ECI regarding the controversial statements made by Sayantan Basu who is contesting the election from Basirhat with a BJP ticket. The CEO office had earlier served a show-cause notice to Basu and sought a video of his derogatory speech. The CEO office is awaiting instructions from the ECI.
