HOW YOU ACCUMULATE GARBAGE IN YOUR PC


Let's say you downloaded a file from the internet.
So it's in two places I guess:
a. Desktop
b. Downloads

Fast forward 2 months, surprise! It's still there!
Maybe you:
a. Wanted to use it but haven't.
b. Did use it (read it, printed etc) but didn't have the time to
delete it or file it.
c. Don't really remember why you had it in the first place.

After 1 year, 2 years, 3 years - the download folder (or desktop) just
keeps growing and growing.
How do you fix this?
Simple answer: Create a monthly download folder at the beginning of each month.

For example:
download2014month05 (may)
download2014month12 (december)

Create a monthly download folder at the beginning of each month.

WHY YOU SHOULD NAME FILES OR FOLDERS LIKE THIS


Jomar, why didn't you just use the easy to read may2014downloads as folder name?

Yeah, may2014download is easy to read. But once you SORT the folders,
you don't want to see dec2014downloads coming before may do you?

You'd like may to come before december, so we use number instead
because children, 05 comes before 12. And I didn't say 5, I said 05.

Here's a little thing I learned in the old VMS (no mouse, one color
monitor, no internet) days, If you write dates like this 20140501
(labor day) or 2014_month05_day01 the computer can sort / organize the
files correctly with the oldest files coming in before the newest
files.

IT REALLY IS BETTER if it looks like this:

2014month04_downloads
2014month05_downloads
2014month06_downloads
2014month07_downloads
2014month08_downloads
2014month09_downloads

Instead of this: (it's alphabetical, see?)

april2014_download
august2014_download
july2014_download
june2014_download
may2014_download
september2014_download

Even this is not better:

apr2014_download
aug2014_download
jul2014_download
jun2014_download
may2014_download
sep2014_download

Two last things:

1. You'll want to use underscores instead of blanks between parts of the name.
Yes: 2014month09_downloads
No: 2014month09 downloads

Why Jomar?
Because sometimes when you send that file with the blank to someone
else, the blank becomes percent twenty or %20 and this is nor
readable.

"2014month09%20downloads"

So don't use blanks. Until the rest of the world's machines has fixed
itself to NOT translate a space in to percent twenty. Jomar, why does
it do that? The computer using the percent twenty doesn't know how to
replace it with a blank. After all in ancient computer code (called
ascii) - percent twenty is a blank. But not all devices and programs
have done that yet. Give it 50 years maybe.

Use underscores instead of blanks between parts of the name

2. Use an underscore so people know where to make their eyes stop at
the difference between the files.

NO (the files look like they're the same)

2014month07downloads
2014month08downloads
2014month09downloads

YES (the difference is obviously before the underscore)
2014month07_downloads
2014month08_downloads
2014month09_downloads

BIGGEST MISTAKE YOU COMMIT WHEN NAMING FILES


When you get your first computer, you create a file - say in EXCEL or
WORD or Powerpoint. Usually the file name is TEST or your first name.
Truly vain people use their complete names.

Sixteen years later, you have a mess of files all named after you. Like this:
Jocelyn1
Jocelyn2
Jocelyn_Payroll
...
(16 thousand files later)
Joy2014_report

The big mistake is most people NEVER NAME THE FILE based on what it
really contains.

You can't name a file report because sooner or later you'll be making
ANOTHER report and there's no way to know w/c report this is. Jomar
I'll use the DATE! No you won't remember. Name files based on what's
inside and drop your name in the filename.

Name files based on what's inside and drop your name in the filename.

YES: spiderman2014_blogpost_for_jomarhilario.doc
YES: household_expenses_2014_to_be_reviewed
YES: household_expenses_2014_final
NO: household_expenses_2014_final_edited2 (it can't be final and
edited at the same time, that's weird)

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO NEXT


Putting files into folders is properly named is great.
But here's one thing you need to do BEFORE you permanently put them
there -and lose your disc space.

Disk space is cheaper today but it's still PRECIOUS - it actually
marks why a 64GB (8 x more space) iphone is lots of expensive than a 8
GB iphone.  The 64GB is 41% higher in price than a 8GB even if 64GB
memory is not that expensive today.  The electronics are IDENTICAL and
only the capacity to hold more data/music/movies/texts has changed.

Versus the Iphone 8GB, is the 64GB Iphone overpriced or not? What do
you think? -Jomar Hilario

Versus the Iphone 8GB, is the 64GB Iphone overpriced or not? What doyou think?


So here's the missing link to make sure you don't waste that space:
THINK ABOUT THE FILES YOU DOWNLOAD

Categorize them as:

  • Installers
  • Files you need to print
  • Files you need to learn from (PDF, VIDEO, MP3)
  • Entertainment files (VIDEO, MP3)
  • Screenshots
  • Others


Try to keep the OTHERS a small number.
For each of the categories above, decide what you can DELETE MONTHLY or not.

For example:

  • Installers  - DELETE
  • Files you need to print - DELETE AFTER PRINTING
  • Files you need to learn from (PDF, VIDEO, MP3) - DO NOT DELETE
  • Entertainment files (VIDEO, MP3) - DELETE AFTERVIEWING/LISTENING/IMPORTING to MUSIC folder
  • Screenshots  - DELETE


If you marked them DELETE, before you backup your month's files to
your monthly folders, DELETE the contents of Installers (EXE or DMG
files), Files for printing, Entertainment and Screenshots.

You can also add these folders to simplify:
WATCHED VIDEOS (transfer videos to these after you've watched them)
PRINTED FILES (copy files here after you print them)

Or a simple way of life would be - just delete the show/files once
you've used them /consumed them. No need for folders like INSTALLER
etc.

BUT THERE's GOTTA BE A BETTER WAY THAN THIS RIGHT?


You'd be right. If you're a MAC user, you can study how to use
AUTOMATOR or BUY the HAZEL app. If you're using a WINDOWs, fire up
Google to locate Folder Actions Automation Tools or even Backup Tools.
Be careful with backup tools as most of them just COPY files to
another hard disc (external), or to the cloud. You don't want that.
You can a "FOLDER ORGANIZATION tool" - so you look for that.

Jomar, can't you suggest one?
1. I don't use windows anymore.
2. While I'm writing this, the internet went down, so I can't search.

You search, you can do it. That's the technique I teach in the "How to
Work From Home as a Virtual Assistant" Seminar - google your answers.

What does a tool like HAZEL do?

It copies files based on your rules to folders created by your rules.

What does automator do?

It does that same thing, only more complicated - but hey, it's built
in to EVERY MAC. Built in power you never knew you had.

It's like you discovering you can tell SIRI (the iphone assistant)
"Alarm 5pm tomorrow for meeting with Bo". You can do that? Of course
you can. You tell siri to remind you about things you need in the near
future.  Haven't really tried to ask Siri to greet me happy birthday
next year though.

SO WHAT'S THE MINDSET IN ALL OF THIS?


Being intentional, being purposeful - that's the mindset. You do
things because you THOUGHT about them sometime in the past.

You dont' just do them (download files) because that's what you've always done.

I find that most people who are successful in many aspects in their
life - are intentional. They do things ON PURPOSE. They plan things.

OBJECTION

But Jomar, I've no time for planning and thinking - I'm always
working! You're right - but you're also right that most people you
talk to are either 15 minutes late or don't show up at all - at work
or to watch XMEN the movie.

You do have time, read my previous post on the 15minute success habit

WHY NAMING YOUR FILES CORRECTLY IS SUCH A BIG DEAL

YESTERDAY, THEY DIDN'T UNDERSTAND ME

Yesterday I talked for one hour on the subject of "Success Mindsets" in a small IT company in Makati.

When I came to the part about splitting your day into 15minute "Work Segments", the crowd's eyebrows started to wrinkle.

When I came to the part about splitting your day into 15minute "Work Segments", the crowd's eyebrows started to wrinkle.
Their left and right eyebrows were getting closer and closer to each other that I knew something was not clear.

I had only a few minutes left in that talk so lets have at it here in this email.

THERE'S A BETTER GAME THAN CASHFLOW 101?

Let's say you played the Success Game with me (it was a bonus game along with Cashflow 101, w/c I hosted last Saturday).  

In Cashflow 101, you manage tons of money, buy stocks, real estate, manage unwanted expenses (doodads), have children, get downsized, donate to charity.  

This game did last 3-4 hours for beginners.

In Cashflow 101, you manage tons of money, buy stocks, real estate, manage unwanted expenses (doodads), have children, get downsized, donate to charity.
In last Saturday's  game, 4 people were about to get out of the RAT RACE (that's part 1 of your success in this game) and only one person (Jay Castillo, of foreclosurephilippines.com) was able to get out of the FAST TRACK (part 2 - completing the game) - and that was only ONE TABLE - the one Ronald Cagape (of REMAX Ortigas) was managing.

Now in another table, were were managing money, buying stocks, real estate, managing unwanted expenses, having children, getting lawsuits, being subject to discipline PLUS getting fit, talking about our feelings, making time for family, acknowledging the other players, giving gifts to each other, talking about our personal morality, skills, health and family life, crying -- and trying to reach a different financial cash goal for each person.

Bottomline, the Success Game was a bit more balanced and a bit more like life, than the Cashflow101 game. 

This other table was NOT playing Cashflow, we were playing the SUCCESS game from Malaysia.

This Success Game came from the same place that Robert's Cashflow game, a little known seminar that's been running since the 1970s.

Bottomline, the Success Game was a bit more balanced and a bit more like life, than the Cashflow101 game. 

You can play one or the other on SAT, June 28, 1pm-5pm.  The Success Game can only accommodate 6 players, TOPS.  Stay tuned for details.

HOW YOU CAN INSERT IMPORTANT THINGS IN YOUR DAY w/o NOTICING IT

Here's where the 15minutes come in.

In that Success Game, you'll be forced to look at 6 aspects of your life - only one of them is MONEY.

Can you give 1 hour to THIS PERSON YOU NEGLECTED ALL YOUR LIFE? or are you too busy?

Let's say you totally neglected FAMILY BONDING for the sake of earning more so you can buy the kids Minecraft, Frozen and Lego plastic toys and apps.  

Let's face it, you do.

The 15 minute rule says that can't you really insert that 15min time with ONE PERSON in your family TODAY?
No more, no less. Can you?

Because if you were asked - can you give 1 hour to THIS PERSON YOU NEGLECTED ALL YOUR LIFE -- you'd probably say "NOPE", too busy.

But 15minutes? I think you can say YES to that.

By the way, 15mins is approximately 1% of your day. 

So can you give 1% of your day to this person in your family?

When you put it that way, OF COURSE right!

Any part of your life that doesn't involve work can be inserted in your CALENDAR if you start giving it 15minutes.

WHY YOU CAN SMILE WHEN PEOPLE ARE LATE FOR MEETINGS

You can accomplish a lot of 15minutes.

This is what I mentioned in both my Marketing Success Formula meet-ups and in the talk yesterday. 

Pay attention because this HAPPENS TO YOU.

When you meet-up with people for a meeting, more often than not, THEY ARE LATE 15 minutes!

So what do you do? Make sure you're prepared to do something you've already planned to do in that 15minutes GIFTED back to you.

When people come in late for a meeting (or your flight is delayed), they didn't rob you of time, they gave it back to you. What are you going to do with it? - Jomar Hilario

It's a GIFT. Open it and use it well.  How? Plan for it at the start of the day.

Here are my 15min GEMS - once someone hands me 15 mins, I'm going to do THESE:

JOMAR'S LIST OF THINGS TO DO WHEN PEOPLE ARE LATE

Here's my list plus a few suggestions for you for both digital and paper people:

1. Open Photos in my phone, look for questions I need to answer in my regular 1-minute podcast and record myself answering (selfie style) the question on the spot using my phone as camera. (3 mins)

2. Repeat #1 for as many questions as I can cover. Notice, I don't need internet for this.

3. Get out the piece of paper /journal entry called "MY PERFECT DAY" and continue writing on it. I'll explain the PERFECT DAY in another article.

4. Write a THANK YOU message that's PERSONAL to your favorite ________. The blank can be anybody, any organization.  Author, Preacher, Priest, Masseuse, Friend, Boss, Cook, Waiter. 

Make it a bit long.

5. (This is from someone I know) Write I LOVE YOU BECAUSE ___________. to someone you love in a separate journal or notebook to be given to that person after one month. Write once a day.

6. Create your list of 6 most important things you need to do tomorrow.

7. Fire up Kindle app or Podcast app or Video app and watch or read a book or video you're still not finished reading.

8. Fire up NOTES app and write anything on it. It'll sync to your Mac automatically (notes app also) later.

9. If you have internet, start making "HOMESCREEN shortcuts" for all of your favorite blogs so you never have to type the blog or site name, you just press a button on your mobile.

10. If you don't use it yet (you need internet) set up FLIPBOARD or ZITE to cover your most favorite topics so you NEVER have to read individual blogs but still get updated on your industry or interest.

11. If you have internet, find an EXCITING video in youtube about your topic of interest and share it online with comments.

12. Type a blog post in the same way I created it, notice the format of this essay, COPY IT. Where will you type it? Anywhere there's a keyboard! I once did that waiting in a mall store while my wife was in the fitting room.

13. Look at your calendar and FILL IT UP, specially NEXT YEAR. Hardly anyone ever does that. When I was starting I wondered why Bo Sanchez has a booked calendar that stretches for YEARS. Now I do, too. 

You just have to fill it up YOURSELF.

SHARE THIS QUOTE: 
You say you can't predict the future? Actually you can, plan it and it MAY happen. Readhttp://ow.ly/2HhjZq


5 years into the future? Yes, no harm in planning.

After all, they're LATE and there's no one around.

14. Do a selfie video message for your children/loved one - when they become 20 or 30 or 18 or 10 years old.  

Email this to yourself using services like Boomerang or any time-release email service so you receive it in the CORRECT year to show to your kids. 

Fill the message with lessons and address them by name.
I think we have done a good amount of "HELLO VIDEOS" addressed to my 1 year old - when he was 1 year old. 

He still has a few more years before he can understand that we were thinking of him while we're on vacation w/o him (too young).

15. Open your journal and write what you're thankful for, what you're worried about (Thank you Keng Dela Cruz). 

Quickly close it when the late people come in. Smile.

Question: Will I be lonely if I work from home?




When I'm out driving (I've been driving for a 1 year pa lang) - I notice that most cars are shiny.
The jeeps, tricycles and buses - NO.
But cars, SUV and vans - the sun glints off their reflections - showing the care their owners had in the outward appearance of their vehicles.

Considering they don't really spend lots of time with it during the day - the car spends 9 hours a day making tsismis with other cars in the parking lot, right?
But boy, most cars do shine!

I wonder if it's the same - inside? No?
How much maintenance and cleaning happens.
My dealer told me every 5000 km I need to bring it in for maintenance.
And a professional driver told me he gets his car-washed like 1-2x week.

Me, I use our car 1-2 x a week.
Yes, read that again.

Anyway, this week I'm busy backing up and creating a brand new install of two of my computers.

These machines are our most essential tools of the trade, agree?
So keeping them updated, fast and clean is extremely important.

Tama ba?

If you're using WINDOWS - you probably have to do an install every 3 months.
I'm not kidding. For Mac OS X users, you do it every 7 months.

"IT" means you need to backup everything into a massive 2TB USB3 hard disc (I'm serious about both 2TB and USB3, para fast and maraming space).

Yes, this is me telling you you need to BUY an external hard disc that's rated at USB3 speed.
That's a hard disc that has a cable with blue tips (most of the time).
I've studied this well, there's NO NEED to get an expensive SSD or Thunderbolt backup hard disc.
USB3 is plenty for now.

When doing this backup and restore, you don't restore.
Instead you individually put back stuff into the computer ONE BY ONE making sure you need to use these files and apps in the next 6 months.
If not, they need to STAY in the backup hard disc.

Here's how I organize my hard disc: (shortcut version):
DOCUMENTS folder contain
MUSIC
PHOTOS
SCREENSHOTS
LEARNINGS
FAMILY
FUN
DRAFTS
WORK
DROPBOX
DOWNLOADS

When I know the files needs to be used now but no need to keep it (okay to delete), I create them in DRAFTS.
But when I know the file is going to be used after I used it (not okay to delete) I create the file in WORK.
Shortcut: Everything in DRAFTS can be erased - same with SCREENSHOTS - since I take lots of those.

Learnings are where all my video, PDF and mp3 of purchased and downloadable seminars go.

Everything non-work goes to FAMILY and FUN.

Now for APPS. What software or #apps should you install in your computer?
Since I just did this TWICE, I can still remember them all, make sure you have all of these and mostly NOTHING ELSE inside the computer.

This is YOUR computer, right?

MS OFFICE or iWORK for MAC (With OneNote or extra MS office apps deleted)
VLC Video player
ITUNES (to download podcasts and process music)
FIREFOX, OPERA, CHROME, SAFARI browsers
Awesome Screenshot app inside the browsers (Creates screenshots that you can edit inside the browser)
WasteNoTime app for all browsers (I use this to NEVER SEE websites I never want to see)
DROPBOX for copying and recieving massive files to and from other pcs
TELEPORTD for controlling multiple computers using one keyboard and mouse
PICTURELIFE for backup up all your photos and videos, automatically (paid)
VIDEO EDITING SOFTWARE (mine's Imovie)
EVERNOTE for taking notes that get synchronized to your other gadgets and machines
PHOTO App like PICASA or IPHOTO
ONE COMPUTER GAME for fun and break time
AUTOBACKUP SOFTWARE (like Timemachine or Hazel (paid)
KEYBO ARD MAESTRO shortcut maker and macro recorder.
VIBER para ma open mga messages sa computer
SPOTIFY to listen to music pag walang maisip na ipatugtog

All other apps I use are WEBAPPS (like Hootsuite or Facebook, so nothing is installed in the computer)

I think that's it. I'm sure I forgot other things, I'll email you when I remember them.

Remember: IT's not about the apps.
It's about YOU who are using them.

Do you know how to use them ?

Have you PRINTED OUT their HELP text and read them all?
Have to tried to use their shortcut keys?

RULES OF USING YOUR COMPUTER:
1. Always keeps files in MONTHLY folders after you use them.
So everytime you open a folder, one month worth of files lang ang laman.
Backup these automatically using an app like HAZEL or use the MAC Automator tool.
If you're using Windows, then get an equivalent.

2. NEVER put work files on the DESKTOP. It slows down the machine.

3. ALWAYS BACKUP files but make it automated, don't do it consciously so it happens w/o you knowing about it everyday.

4. TRY TO PUT SHORTCUTS on your desktop (not work files or app files) for frequently accessed files, apps or websites.

5. MAKE YOUR BROWSER open your MOST IMPORTANT website everytime you open it - or if that makes it go SLOW, make it open NOTHING.

6. Use BIG ICONS so you can click them FASTER. Find out how to make your icons look big.

7. If you share a computer with other people, STRIVE to get your own because people CANNOT BE expected to CLEANUP machines, really.

Ok, I think this is enough for a new Webinar, don't you think?
Do me a favor, if you think you'll need this kind of input, reply with ONE WORD - YES or NO.
Just click REPLY so I'll know to make this into a webinar for you to ask questions and get DEMOS.
