"Are we there yet, are we there yet?". I'm sure we've all heard this one, if it's not from one of your own kids, you've seen it on TV. Yes, kids are impatient and get bored, but that's just kids, or is it? Those kids grow up and we are now those kids, now tell me, even though you might not say it, do you think it: "Are we there yet, are we there yet?". I know that I do, and it is ...

by Dermot Mc Donough Internet and Businesses Online, Relationships, Health and Fitness, Self Improvement
To vape or not to smoke, that is the question: As the heading says, it can be done and in my opinion, vaping has become a substitute for cigarettes, not a nicotine replacement cessation aid. If you want to know my why's & how's, read on..... I believe, every smokers' greatest desire is to stop!!! I know I did and after 25 years of smoking, I stopped and have stayed stopped now for over 9 years. I started smoking at the age of 14 and by ...

Hi there it’s Dermot here, Do you find yourself in the same predicament, when living costs outstretch your income, even if you are working a full-time job? I don’t know about you but I found that during the economic downturn, especially between 2008 and 2016, the cost of living was reasonably cheap and I was one of the fortunate ones who held onto a job. What’s going on? Since 2016, I have found that my Euro doesn’t go as far as it did ...

Momentum(ise) Yourself

by Dermot Mc Donough Computers and Technology, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
When I think of momentum, I think of a roller coaster, very slow to start as it climbs to the highest point and then gravity takes over and it runs at great speed until it comes to a stop at the finish.  That in a nutshell is momentum, but we are not roller coasters, so what does it mean for us? Like a roller coaster, to get to a point to achieve momentum, we have to firstly put in the work or ...

How Are You? Fine!!, really?!

by Dermot Mc Donough Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Relationships, Health and Fitness, Self Improvement
"How are You?" - "Fine" Don’t we ask and answer this question all the time. It is almost an automatic question, with an automatic answer, It is habitual. But do you know, it has no meaning or substance. "How are you?" is an open question which could be answered with one word, like "fine or grand(as we say in Ireland)", or you could tell a "whole life story" as the answer. 90% of use the shortened answer of “Fine”. What is “Fine”, ...

Reject Rejections

by Dermot Mc Donough Internet and Businesses Online, Investing, Self Improvement
When you are starting up an online business or anything new at all, there is nothing worse than rejections. We all have experiences of other people saying to us "It won't work", "It's already being done, so you missed the boat", "You don't have enough, knowledge or experience".......... Just hearing all this negativity is enough to make anyone be full of self doubt and self rejection. Overwhelmed I know that in my short experience on line I've beaten myself up more than ...

The Old Habit of Blame and Excuses

by Dermot Mc Donough Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
“Passing the buck” is a learned behaviour, linked to our fight or flight response, which does eventually develop into a habit over time. As kids we used blame and made excuses as a defence mechanism, so as not to get into trouble when we had been naughty or done something wrong. The rest so to say is history. Hi there it’s Dermot again, I found myself going down this road lately, fault finding, blaming and making every excuse under the sun. ...
