The Hustler’s Playbook: Starting Is How You Get Ready

first_imgWhen I was a teenager, I started a rock-n-roll band. Like all new rock-n-roll bands, we were terrible. In fact, I would say that we were especially terrible. We could play so few songs that we had to write our own songs to be able to play them at all. That didn’t stop us from recording our songs, and it didn’t prevent us from playing live gigs way before we were good enough to play in front of a crowd. There is no point in being in a band if you don’t play for people, so that is what we did. Eventually, we improved (individually and collectively, even if unevenly).You don’t become a better writer by waiting to write until you believe your writing is going to be good enough (a concept that doesn’t take into account the enormous variations in what people believe to be good). You get better at writing when you start writing.You don’t get better at anything by waiting to do it until you believe you have the bona fides. You don’t get better at running a business by going to business school, even though doing so will help you better understand the principles of finance and accounting, marketing, and strategy. You get better by running some part of a business or starting your own business (something everyone in business should do as a way to really learn how to run a business). The certificate you get in some chosen endeavor doesn’t prepare you to do good work, even if it enables you to get a license or some other variation of permission.You are better off starting than waiting. You are better off gaining experience, making distinctions, and finding your way than waiting until you believe you are perfectly ready. The mistakes, the missteps, the dead ends, and the time you spend on the plateau (the periods when you persist without progress), are what allow you to gain the competency to grow into what you will eventually become. Waiting not only steals time and pushes your goal into the future, it can also eliminate your drive and kill your goal completely.Be what you are. Start now. Essential Reading!

Tesla to soon get Netflix YouTube streaming support Musk

first_imgSan Francisco: Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that people would be soon able to stream videos on digital platforms like Netflix and YouTube in parked Tesla electric vehicles.”Ability to stream YouTube and Netflix when car is stopped coming to your Tesla soon! Has an amazingly immersive, cinematic feel due to the comfy seats & surround sound audio,” Musk wrote on his Twitter handle. “When full self-driving is approved by regulators, we will enable video while moving,” he added. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this yearThe desire to allow drivers and passengers to watch video is not a total surprise – Musk noted at E3 that the ability to watch YouTube was coming, The Verge said. Tesla has already unveiled games that drivers can play on the displays in their cars. The games also only work when the car is stationary, so that the player can use the steering wheel as a controller. On Friday, the company announced that chess game is also coming to the Tesla Arcade. But there are huge concerns that come along with such features. Test vehicles are required to have a driver behind the wheel to take over in case something goes wrong, and even as self-driving technology improves, it’s hard to imagine that going away completely, the report said. In March 2017, an Uber self-driving car crashed into pedestrian in Arizona as the driver was watching The Voice on content streaming platform Hulu and lost track of the road.last_img read more

Ohio State athletics selfreports 9 minor NCAA violations so far in 2014

Redacted SportOutside Competition Expense Reported Feb. 3In the unnamed sport, a student-athlete who was competing unattached suffered a head injury and thus was unable to complete the competition. An OSU athletic trainer was present at the event, however, because OSU student-athletes were participating at the same competition. The trainer deemed it necessary for the injured student-athlete to receive medical attention and transportation home on the team bus so they could observe them and make sure their condition didn’t get worse. The head coach of the sport called OSU Compliance prior to the trip home, and the Compliance Office approved the trip and services for out of concern for the student-athlete’s personal welfare. FootballImpermissible Scouting Reported Jan. 9During a weekend in November 2013 — the exact date was redacted — a football graduate assistant coach took a trip to a school — one where he was formerly employed as a graduate assistant — to attend a game. The name of the graduate assistant coach was redacted in the report, in addition to where he traveled, who he was going to visit, what type of sport he was seeing and where his other friends were from. Impermissible Lodging Reported Feb. 19During an official campus visit from Dec. 13 to 15, a prospective student-athlete and his family were reserved three hotel rooms by the institution: one for the athlete himself, one for his father and brother and one for his mother, who is separated from his father. According to the report, the OSU football staff did not know the prospect’s mother had decided not to attend the visit, and because her room was going unused, the prospect’s brother asked the hotel clerk to allow him to use it instead. The clerk complied with this request because he was a family member. In addition to sending a letter to educate the football staff that emphasized the rules about lodging during official visits, the prospect has been declared ineligible by the institution until he repays the value of the room to a charity. Men’s VolleyballImpermissible Seating Reported Feb. 20Two prospective student-athletes were on campus for official visits Nov. 23, and attended the football team’s game against Indiana. Before a game begins, prospects who are on recruiting trips are permitted to be on the field until approximately 10 minutes before kickoff and are then asked to take their seats. On this occasion, a long line had formed to exit the field because of the cold temperatures that day, and the prospects instead chose to wait on the sidelines next to a heater. They did not leave the field until after kickoff. In addition to a letter of education sent to the coaching staff of the volleyball program, a member of the coaching staff will now accompany all visiting prospects on the sidelines before football games. Click to expand.Ohio State athletics has committed at least nine violations in less than three months.OSU has so far self-reported at least nine minor violations in 2014, six of which included prospective student-athletes. The sport for one self-reported violation was redacted from the request, along with the name of the student-athlete involved.Of the nine reported violations, the sport with the highest number of violations so far in 2014 is the football team, with two.The figure is a result of an open records request submitted Feb. 24 by The Lantern and released Wednesday by the OSU public records office.None of the violations are considered major. The reason the sport was redacted on a violation reported Feb. 3 was because of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, paralegal and Public Records Office program manager Rebecca Dickson said in an email.“FERPA obligates us to redact information which could lead to the identification of the particular student,” Dickson said. “Redacting the sport allowed us to still help you to understand the gist of that particular violation, yet still protect the privacy of the particular student, as is required by federal law.”Much like the 24 violations that were self-reported by the athletic department in the latter half of 2013, the school proposed its own corrective action to either the Big Ten or NCAA in eight of the nine cases. The lone violation for which the institution, or OSU, deemed “no further action (was) necessary” was the case with the redacted information, as it involved a student-athlete’s immediate health at the time of the violation according to the report.The corrective actions included providing a letter to educate the sports’ respective staffs of the rules of OSU Compliance, as well as holding meetings with the office. The most recent violation report was Feb. 20. WrestlingPrivate Camp Advertising Reported Feb. 4After submitting a copy of a proposed camp advertisement to the Compliance Office and having it approved, a non-institutional camp director submitted it on an online message board to promote the camp. When the director submitted it to the office, it did not have the names or images of any OSU student-athletes, but when he or she put it online, the message board added the names and pictures of four OSU student-athletes to the advertisement. The advertisement was quickly removed by the non-institutional camp director after working with the Compliance Office, and OSU said it believed no further action was necessary. Men’s GymnasticsImpermissible Text Message Reported Jan. 22An impermissible text message was sent to a prospective student-athlete. In addition to the letter of education sent to the gymnastics coaching staff, the institution prohibited them from contacting all prospective student-athletes from Dec. 4 to 11. Women’s TennisPublicity of Prospect’s Visit Reported Feb. 3A pair of prospective student-athletes was on the field with the team as they were being recognized at halftime of the football team’s game against Buffalo Aug. 31. Women’s Field HockeyImpermissible Phone Calls Reported Jan. 9Assistant coach Kelly Terwilliger called two prospective student-athletes twice in one week. The compliance office issued a letter of education to the women’s field hockey coaching staff, and the institution never recruited either prospective student-athlete, who have since enrolled at an institution other than OSU. Women’s BasketballImpermissible Text Message Reported Feb. 3An assistant coach sent an email to a parent of a prospective student-athlete. After issuing the coaching staff a letter of education regarding the use of electronic correspondence in recruiting, the institution also forbade them from contacting the athlete until Sept. 15, 2015 — two weeks later than what would have been the first permissible date to begin contacting her. read more
