Principles are natural laws that are external to us and that ultimately control the consequences of our actions. Values are internal and subjective and represent that which we feel strongest about in guiding our behavior.
Values govern people’s behavior but principles govern the consequences of those behaviors.
I have come to believe that humility is the mother of all virtues. Humility says we are not in control, principles are in control, therefore we submit ourselves to principles.
Pride says that we are in control, and since our values govern our behavior, we can simply do life our way. We may do so but the consequences of our behavior flow from principles, not our values. Therefore we should value principles.
Time Management for e-commerce is an absolutely critical skill area. Time management can be the single biggest block to even starting an e-commerce business. And for an established, busy e-commerce business owner, managing time is just as critical.
In this episode, we focus on the learnings from the wonderful book (and also audio book) –
“7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Steven Covey
The topic in this episode was inspired by a conversation I had with a mentoring client who reached out to me for help with motivation. Mindset is one of those areas that is a key part of success. So today I’m going to talk about five mindset blocks for those who are just starting out with a private label business, and their solutions.
What we’re talking about today is strategy. What does it mean? And why does it matter to Amazon Power Sellers?
“Vision without action is a daydream;
Action without vision is a nightmare.”
I often find that irony in that a lot of time management systems and advice is that they take a lot of time. So I’m going to keep it brief. The tips in this episode are from Tim Ferris’ The Four Hour Work Week.
This episode is a continuation of the second habit of seven laid out in 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen Covey. This habit has been a touchstone in my life for about 25 years, and when I apply the principles in this book, my life has gone better. I have found that this book is one of the most reliably realistic books about how life actually works.
The framework for this episode is inspired by the book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen Covey. This book has been a touchstone in my life for about 25 years, and when I apply the principles in this book, my life has gone better. I have found that this book is one of the most reliably realistic books about how life actually works. In this episode, we are covering the second habit of the seven as it pertains to goal setting, “begin with the end in mind”. The first habit, “be proactive”, was covered in episode 284.
Determinism is the belief that “We are largely determined by conditioning and conditions.” It is the opposite of being proactive.
On this episode of Amazing FBA, it’s time to talk mindfulness. If you’re going to become a successful Amazon seller, you’re going to need to a mindful strategy. Whether it’s Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People, or Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, there are lessons we can learn from 20th century business literature regarding mindfulness through the eyes of the entrepreneur. Covey talks in detail about ‘Character Ethics’. These include principles like Integrity, Humanity, Fidelity, Courage, Patience, Simplicity & The Golden Rule. Patience is incredibly important.
