60 Minutes, 22 Minutes, 2 Minutes. No Minutes Left?

May 27, 2010

We live in unprecedented times! With a click of a button you can communicate with practically anyone in the world, transfer funds seemingly instantaneously, and purchase items ranging from diapers to wine all on the internet. And so, gone are the days when the average American could dedicate sixty solid minutes to a sole television news magazine such as CBS’: 60 Minutes. While it still broadcasts into American homes each week, they have had to “spice it up” with additions to the staff such as CNN’s Anderson Cooper or Katie Couric (who really rose to fame on another network!). In all honesty, I don’t watch 60 Minutes, what with living in Jerusalem, not having a television and all, but I do enjoy hearing it in Podcast format. All you have to do is simply download it from iTunes (here) and you can enjoy the famous tick, tick, tick, that starts the show, as well as the vast array of topics that they cover on a weekly basis.

While on the topic of time, I always found it funny that one of the busiest places in the world is know as: Times Square. Here you will see New Yorkers and tourists who appear constantly busy. The hustle and bustle along with the lights is exhilarating to say the least. And yet, one could get soo consumed that a person could loose the importance of time, in the very area that is called, Times Square! Indeed, I’ve hear many people suggest that it’s because of the hectic scene in Manhattan, and more specifically, Times Square, that New York is known as: “The City that Never Sleeps!”

On that note, I believe it’s without coincidence that in such a city there’s a radio station, WINS (1010 kHz), known on-air as “Ten-Ten Wins” that is arguably world famous for their slogan, “You give us twenty-minutes minutes, we’ll give you the world!” Indeed, millions of commuters and listeners tune in each year to this very station to get a quick dose of news, traffic, and weather, in just twenty-two minutes.

Why you might ask?

Truthfully, they want/need to be informed, but for many people that’s all the time they have to spare in their busy chaotic life that they lead on a daily basis.

While many New Yorkers tune in to WINS to hear the latest events as they commute to work every morning, there are millions of Americans across the country who watch NBC’s Today Show to become updated with all the latest happenings across the country. People view this program as they get dressed for work, eat their breakfast, and so on and so forth. And yet, perhaps emblematic of our ever bustling society, the Today Show has just recently introduced: Today in Two Minutes.

And frankly I get it!

In a day in age in which there are many different mediums to advertise on, you need to constantly reach your consumer and target audience. The Today Show doesn’t want to become a “thing of the past!” And so, if they can retain or reel in an additional age demographic by introducing this short new feature…then as we say…Kol HaKavod!

That said, I think it’s important that every person still have some minutes left in their day that they can call: ME TIME! I encourage everyone to set aside even just two minutes that will enable you to learn, grow, and continue to improve and refine your inner-self! It’s important to not get soo wrapped up and consumed by the world we live in. Unfortunately we all know people who if they would take the time to look up from their Blackberry, they might see how much they’ve alienated everyone else around them.  Moreover, they may even realize that the person they have hurt the most by constantly consuming media or the like, is the person that they know as: Me, Myself, and I!

And so, a great book I’d like to recommend is: Positive Word Power. As a Husband, Father, Educator, and Jew, there are days where I’m left gasping for air. There are days where I need to ask myself, “where did my ‘ME TIME’ go?” This book is perfect to read by yourself or along with a partner (I read it with my wife!). Through daily lessons, it succinctly allows one to focus on the power of speech and positivity, which in today’s world, can erode rather quickly.

All in all, whether you have sixty minutes, twenty-two minutes, two minutes, or think that you have NO TIME, make it a point to learn this book for your ME TIME. I assure you will only see positive results!

Can you recommend some other book or action that although read or performed quickly can impact your entire day? I’d love to hear from you in the Comments Section below.

    Smiling is one act that may impact someone’s day from the film The Blind audio here http://www.entertonement.com/clips/drbfmgmsxl–18 and the can be better illustrated here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hn5-pxWM6k at about 47 second mark. You can see how the boy says it so passionately. Also saying hello to people Jew & Gentiles thus doing Derech Eretz. I would like to illustrate this with a story. The Alter of Slabodka (Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel) who was sent by his Rebbe to learn in another Yeshiva. The Alter struggled to understand why his Rebbe has done this. Later on there was a Din Torah in which the Alter was involved as a Dayan (Judge) regarding counterfeit merchandise the Alter was put on trial for having knowledge of counterfeit merchandise was being trafficked and thus the government was not collecting taxes on the merchandise. However the Alter was merely a Dayan and the government was using the Alter as a scapegoat. At the trial a policeman asked the Judge if he can say a few words on behalf of the Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel the courtroom was silenced. The policeman said that everyday this Bochur (Young Man) R’ Finkel who was always said hello to him in the town where his Rebbe years ago sent him too. Since he had such respect of government then there is no way he would swindle the government now the Judge threw out the case. Small thoughtful act of kindness R’ Green.

    So, you’re a newbie to internet illinois marketing (Shayne)?
    Do not stress over being so brand-new. In today’s world, you literally have all of the information you
    require, best within your reaches. What it boils
    down to is how you break down the information and what you finish with it.
    Anybody can be effective online. All it takes is a little
    determination and commitment.There are a few more steps consisting
    of setting up accounts with the lenders, discovering a workplace to work
    out of, employing loan officers (if you choose to), and getting the fundamentals of your company set up.Offer
    yourself prior to you offer an item! Make your brand name stand apart; produce a brand name
    image that will sell your product. If you are a professional, if you consider yourself a perfectionist and if you constantly want to do things
    better, your workers will certainly see that and the quality of their work will certainly be much greater, leading to a big sales increase.
    Further more, the consumer will immediately familiarize this and your ROI
    (rate of return) will rise.So if you want an ideal example of what companies utilise viral marketing, look them up on youtube or just
    log into your facebook. Possibilities are you’ve seen them being
    circulated from pal to buddy on Facebook, Twitter and even through your
    e-mail.Let your sale be known. advertising
    has always been the supreme device for product awareness.
    Time has shown its effectivity. However, when you advertise, do not stick to one medium.
    It is finest that you utilize everything readily available,
    especially when it is complimentary. Circulate text messages, market
    on online classified advertisements, send out emails,
    post indications and lots of others. Extensive advertising permits you to send your message to your
    possible buyers; no matter what part of the country they
    are in.Make a company plan; you have to have a strategy.
    Strategy out your daily activities for one month at a time.
    Carry them out, weigh the outcomes, modify internet marketing if need be then plan for the next thirty days.There’s an owner of a
    blog site website about investing which has almost 5 visitors a day, with practically the exact same number
    of page views. It seldom makes from Google Advertisement Sense but
    if it ends up being a click, it’s worth about $2.The crooks at these stock investing robot websites attempt to pass this “software” off as deserving $28,000 per license.
    I ask to differ. In truth, my excellent buddy about at Student Trader researched the
    coding of an individual of these programs and found it had not been a strategy at all.
    The system in inquiry just fetched a preloaded pick from a server the minute a day,
    acting to do perform along the method.
