We don’t discuss failure openly, but we all experience it—every single one of us.

Failure is a part of life, and we all fail.

My apologies to you if you believe that you’ve never been unsuccessful because I believe you live a boring life. Speaking about it or going through it isn’t fun, and you may already be bringing back memories that sting.

But let's at least say it.

Our failures don’t define us, but they do.

In a sense, failure defines us. Positively!

Each failed attempt teaches a lesson. Growing from it has been great! …

If you are reading this, you probably have a passing interest in bitcoin. It may not be the level of a Rachel and Ross romance, but you have definitely caught each other’s attention.

However, buying your first bitcoin is a big step, so it is completely natural if you are scared about making it Facebook official. Fortunately, in today’s cryptocurrency era, exposure to bitcoin is easier than ever because of an increasing number of businesses and financial institutions that have adopted digital currency.

Here, I will share some alternate methods to get into bitcoin without investing any money.

Everyone is talking about Bitcoin these days, from your friends to your barber who works on Wall Street. Don’t be concerned; this post isn’t going to talk about other people’s articles on making money with Bitcoin.

However, I will endeavor to explain the technology that makes Bitcoin function and how this idea of Blockchain may be utilized in the future.

What is Blockchain, and How Does it Work? — A Real World Analogy.

Assume that you live in a city with enough parking lots to park 200 automobiles at once (assuming the parking space has a ground floor).

This parking lot features a main gate that is permanently locked and only opened when…

It seems like Evernote has been organizing our lives forever. This highly customizable, multi-device tool is essential for clipping, saving, and keeping projects on track.

I, personally, have been using Evernote since 2007 and have close to 17,000 notes on it. This has been my ‘Second Brain’ for a long time and is the first app that I open every day on my Mac.

There is no way I could work a day job, keep my personal life on track, and keep my activities at Nextgen Digital organized and updated without Evernote.

Without a doubt, Evernote is the grandfather of…

Many people in the twenty-first century believe that “hard effort equals success.”

I’ll get more work done if I put in more hours. To keep up with the competition, I need to put in more effort. And, above all, I can only improve by learning more, accomplishing more, and sleeping less.

More effort, on the other hand, might sometimes have the opposite effect.

We think that the link between hard effort and more excellent production is automatic because specific workplaces — such as the banking sector, where 95-hour weeks are typical — celebrate the concept of hard work.

Of course…

We all love a quiet afternoon now & then, or even a lazy weekend. However, you have a problem when idle days morph into lazy weeks.

It’s challenging to become an active person who gets things done once you’ve become accustomed to the comfort of inaction–and the more you fall behind.

Being productive in a world of continual interruptions and notifications appears to be an impossible task. The intelligent people of the internet, on the other hand, attempt to find ways to increase their productivity and help them live better lives. The difficulty is that most of this material goes…

Productivity applications can help you work smarter, from planning an event to managing a team.

Since the epidemic caused most of us to work from home, productivity has become a hot subject. Some employees saw the new working environment as a godsend for their attention and productivity, while others pined for the days of banter and coffee runs.

If you’re committing to get more done this year, make sure you have one of the finest productivity apps on your phone. …

Have you ever reached the end of the day and realized you have barely scratched the surface of your daily goals?

I used to experience this all the time. My morning would start out with a smart and organized list, and by the end of the day, I would have accomplished a million things that weren’t even on my list.

Rather than getting frustrated with yourself or trying to simply “be more focused”, you need to overhaul your entire system by reworking the way you plan your days.

The highest performers increase their productivity with measurable results. However, keep in…
