If You Are Being Out-Hustled

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now If there is one thing that is 100 percent within your control, it is your effort.You control how hard you work. Not your manager. Not your leader. Not anyone else. No one can or will stop you from working hard. The effort you make here is yours alone. If it isn’t enough, it’s all you.You control how many hours you work, too. The time you invest in work each day has nothing to do with your scheduled hours. It has nothing to do with whether you are paid hourly, salary, or straight commission. You can work as much as you want—or as little.The work that you decide to do is all up to you. This is true even if you have a day job. You can do your life’s work at 5:00 AM in the morning, when there is no one on earth who wants your time. You can work at 10:00 PM when other people are going to sleep. Like effort and time, the work you do is all you.If you are being out-hustled, it’s because you are allowing it.If someone is working harder than you are, they’re likely to produce more and better results. Even if they aren’t as smart, talented, educated, or well-connected as you.That someone who is working more hours doesn’t have one single hour more than you do each day. It’s just that they are investing their hours differently. Everyone has things that they have to do. And they always find time for the things they believe are most important. Right now, how you are spending your time is an indication of what is most important.There are very few things in life that are 100 percent within your control. Your belief system is one of them. Your attitude is another. What kind of effort you make is also one of the few things you can control.last_img read more

Scramble for Olympic tickets in Japan; rest of world waits

Catholic schools seek legislated pay hike, too Tokyo organizers say 50 percent of the tickets will sell for 8,000 yen ($70) or less, with the cheapest ticket costing 2,500 yen ($22).Organizers hope to generate about $800 million from ticket sales, a large source of revenue for the $5.6 billion privately funded operating budget. Overall, Japan will spend about $20 billion to prepare for the games, and about 70 percent is public money.Japan recently passed a law that bans selling tickets at above the original prices.

It happened at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and also at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang a year ago.Tokyo organizers will open sales globally in the spring of 2020, meaning any remaining, unsold tickets can be purchased at the prices offered in Japan. In Rio de Janeiro, many tickets were unsold as the games neared, and some desirable tickets were put back into the pool after they were sold but never paid for.Ticket prices in Japan vary greatly and are listed in the competition section on the organizers’ website.The opening ceremony on July 24 features the most expensive ticket — 300,000 yen ($2,680).

Applicants will learn on June 20 what tickets they were allocated in a lottery system.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ LATEST STORIES Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue Tokyo Organizers on Wednesday declined to say how many tickets had been applied for through the on-line system. They say only that 7.5 million “ID registrations” have been recorded, which allowed people to apply and enter the lottery.“Tokyo 2020 is not disclosing additional details at this stage,” organizers said in a statement.Buying tickets in Japan is not cheap. But it’s more expensive outside Japan where the resellers — appointed by each national Olympic Committee — can add a 20% percent “handling fee” to the cost of each ticket.In addition, many tickets are packaged by resellers with top hotels and other perks, and the markups can be more than 20%. Many of these packages are aimed at corporate buyers, for whom price is not always a concern. The resellers also run the risk of getting stuck with tickets they can’t sell.The reseller for the United States is CoSport , which also handles sales in Australia, Jordan and several European countries.ADVERTISEMENT Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess PDEA chief backs Robredo in revealing ‘discoveries’ on drug war Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
